BROCK 78, TORONTO 3
TORONTO, Ont. - The Brock Badgers men's rugby team travelled to Toronto Saturday to take on the Toronto Varsity Blues. Strong on both sides of the ball, the Badgers came away with a convincing 78-3 victory.
The Badgers struck quick and hard, as seems to be their custom; hard hits and swift passing put points on the scoresheet, while keeping the Blues off of it. Beautiful ball movement through the Brock back line allowed Jordan Prentice (Lindsay, Ont.) to cross the line virtually untouched for the opening try. Rory McDonell (Brantford, Ont.) would make his first of eight conversions on the day.
The Badgers offence would keep it coming in the first half, with tries coming from Dale Fitzgerald (Richmond Hill, Ont.), Travis Cameron (London, Ont.), Brad Van den Enden (Oshawa, Ont.), Levon Kvas-Rothwell (St. Catharines, Ont.), Pat Miltenburg (Mafeking, Ont.) and McDonell, who lead all scorers on the day with 21 points.
The score showed 45-0 after forty minutes.
The second half started much like the first, with the Brock team playing solidly on offence and defence. Toronto's only points of the day came on a disputed penalty call, followed by Benny Mak sending it cleanly through the posts from nearly 40 metres out.
With the goose egg broken, the Badgers looked to shut down the Blues' offence, and succeeded, while adding some insurance of their own. Adding to the scoresheet were Fitzgerald, Miltenburg, Kvas-Rothwell, Van den Enden and Matthew Alexander (Oshawa, Ont.).
