Mohawk rugby play “best game of year” in Seneca whitewashing


mountaineers“It was the best game played by Mohawk this year.” That’s the assessment of rugby coach Alex Paris following his team’s 55-0 whitewashing of the Seneca Sting in Division One play at Mohawk Sports Park Saturday (Oct. 23).

Mohawk improved it’s record to 6-0 and clinched top spot in the division. Chris VanSickle led the way again for the Mountaineers with three tries, one penalty goal and six conversions for 30 points. Other tries came from Mike Rao, Eric Moyer, Graham McKelvey and Alec Stewart.

“It was a great game, said coach Paris. “We controlled the ball on both offence and defence. We had a higher level physical presence and just took advantage of their mistakes. Compared to the previous game, we seemed to have more fun and really pushed each other to play better as a team.” Paris said VanSickle and Phil Jackson were standouts as usual.

Mohawk’s final regular season game will be Thursday October 28 at second place Humber.
