HAMILTON, Ont. - It didn't quite have all the hallmarks of a complete 80-minute performance, but the Sheridan Bruins men's rugby team (2-0 OCAA) had done enough in the opening 40 minutes to hold off Mohawk 38-24.
On the strength of tries from Jeffrey Fallows, Nick Galipo, Nathanael Penny, and Ajaypaul Sahota, the Double Blue led 26-0 at the interval. Brandon Roberts punched one in early in the second half to run the margin to 31-0, but the Bruins were out-scored 24-7 the rest of the way.
The Bruins have four games remaining, but against only two opponents with home-and-home contests against Seneca and Georgian on the slate. Seneca will visit during Sheridan Homecoming on Sept. 29, coming off a hard-fought 29-15 defeat to Georgian. They handled Mohawk 58-0 in their season opener on Sept. 15.
Sheridan will play road legs against Georgian on Oct. 4 and Seneca on Oct. 11, before wrapping the regular season at home with the Battle of the Bears on Oct. 20.
