Hockey: The Dawson Blues women’s team continues to find success, as they improve to 3-0 on the season after beating John Abbott 2-1 on Friday and Édouard-Montpetit 4-2 on Saturday.
The men’s team, on the other hand, is trending in the other direction as they fall to 0-6 so far this season. This comes after their 6-5 and 5-2 losses to Laflèche and Champlain St-Lawrence respectively.
Soccer: The Dawson Blues women’s soccer team ended their losing streak, as they managed to draw 2-2 against John Abbott and they also tied 1-1 against Sainte-Foy on Sunday.
The men’s soccer teams played in the second half of the doubleheader with the Women, although their weekend was not quite as successful. They lost 2-0 against John Abbott and they tied 1-1 against Sainte-Foy.
Rugby: The Dawson Blues biggest success this past weekend came on the rugby field. Both the men and women’s teams beat Vanier in convincing fashion. The men won 31-7, while the women won by a score of 35-0.
Lacrosse: The Blues lacrosse team did not have the weekend that they were hoping for. They lost 15-6 in the blistering heat on Sunday against Jean-de-Brébeuf.
Rowing: The Dawson Blues Rowing Team headed to Ottawa this past Sunday for the Head of the Rideau, an annual rowing competition that takes place on the Rideau Canal.
Against a handful of Universities from, Quebec and Ontario, the Blues took home two Gold Medals. Dawson’s very own Sophia Cuoci lead the Junior Women’s Single, while the Women’s Novice 8 crushed the competition in their respective race—though not without the help of Emily McIsaac, their coxswain.
Dawson also walked away with a few second place achievements, with Elliot Grenier & Kaelan Felčárek earning second in the Junior Men’s Double, and not to forget the Men’s Novice 8, who earned their second place in the rankings despite roasting in the sun for an hour on the water before the start, thanks to hefty commercial boat traffic.
The next rowing event will be the Head of the Fish in Saratoga Springs in October.
Next Week: There is a doubleheader this Friday with the men and women’s soccer teams. The women play at 7h against Champlain St-Lambert, while the men play at 9h against Montmorency. The men’s hockey team will be playing at home against Laflèche Saturday at 7h30. Sunday will be filled with action as the Women’s soccer team play Ahuntsic at 1h. The rugby teams will be having a doubleheader against John Abbott at 12h. The lacrosse team will be looking to get their first win of the season against Champlain Lennoxville at 12h.
