In what was a must win game for the Redmen, the Stingers finally came out on top with a last second 4th quarter touchdown by Kris Bastien. After trailing 26-0 in the first quarter, the Redmen managed a come back and eventually got to lead 40-36 late in the 4th quarter but came up short in what can be described as a surreal ending for the Stingers.
A lot of players stood out in this game, starting with Concordia DB/KR Kris Robertson who intercepted the McGill QBs twice and ran one 80+ yards for the TD. He also was very dynamic on his returns, returning one for a TD that was called back. Mike Donnelly was the best Stinger on offense with 117 yards and a TD on 17 carries as Kris Bastien finally came back from injury and totaled 2 TDs on Reid Quest passes.
For the Redmen, Rookie WR Shaquille Johnson continues his impressive season with a 10 catches, 189 yards and a TD performance. JC Collin started the game at QB for the Redmen but it is Ryne Bondy that provided the spark the offense needed when he came in in the third quarter. He finished the game with 2 TD passes and one on the ground.
Despite all that has happened this week for the Stingers, they manage to rally and win a hard fought battle vs McGill. The Stingers are still in last place in the conference and are excluded from the playoffs.
The Redmen are now desperate for a win with hopes of making the postseason. They will face Montreal and Sherbrooke.
