Humber perfect in rugby wins, Mohawk perfect in losses


In 2009 the Mohawk men’s rugby team defeated Humber for the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association title. Since then, the Hawks have ruled the roost.

The three time defending champions hit the century mark on Wednesday (Oct. 2) and blew away the Mountaineers, 103-0.

And what a day it was, at Mohawk Sports Park, for Humber’s ‘Outside’ and kicker Johnny Sheridan. The first year Hawk from Bolton had two tries and 14 conversions for 38 points.

After the first conversion was missed, Sheridan was perfect the rest of the way. His 14 converts eclipsed the previous OCAA record of 12 converts in a single game set by the all time OCAA scoring leader Phil Boone of Humber, October 4, 2012.

The win left the Hawks with a clean 3-0 record while the Mountaineers’ mark is reversed.

Mohawk has scored just 12 points this season while surrendering 192. Humber has scored 168 and allowed a token 10.

Still, the Hawks sit in second place behind Georgian in the West Division. The Grizzlies have 14 points to Humber’s 12.

Mohawk is back in action on Oct. 15 against Georgian in Barrie.

Mohawk’s next home game is Oct. 26 against Sheridan Bruins.
