Rugby Mountaineers back in winning form


After splitting their first two games of the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association rugby season, beating Fleming College, then losing to Humber, the Mohawk Mountaineers improved to 2-1, blanking the Conestoga Condors 28-0 in Kitchener.

John Packer, Joel Clarke, Alex Houston and Chris VanSickle scored tries for Mohawk and VanSickle converted them all.

Mountaineers’ head coach Alex Paris called it a scrappy game in the cold. “There was lots of good play, but not consistently,” said Paris. “There were dropped balls and missed tackles cost us points.”

Conestoga will pay a return visit to Mohawk Sports Park on Saturday, Oct. 17, at 5 p.m.
