Stingers vs. Redmen: who will shine at Shrine Bowl 29?

On Saturday, the Stingers face their crosstown rivals in a time-honoured children’s hospital fundraiser

What’s in the cards for Concordia at Saturday’s Shrine Bowl, the annual Stingers vs. Redmen fundraising game for Montreal’s Shriners Hospital for Children?

Will fifth-year Stinger Keegan Treloar repeat his epic 10-point performance at last year’s 30-28 win? Will veteran defensive back Mikaël Charland pick off a handful of passes to bring home the trophy for Concordia?

In the past three decades, the McGill-Concordia showdown has raised approximately $900,000. This year, with both teams holding a 1-1 win-loss season record in Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec (RSEQ) league play, it’s likely to be a barn burner.

Last weekend, during the Stingers’ 38-18 win over the Bishop’s Gaiters, Charland stole three passes for a total of 57 yards, tying a Concordia record for most interceptions in a game.

The Gatineau native, who plays both safety and halfback for the Stingers, says he “just did what the coaches told me to do. I stayed deep, read the quarterback and made plays.” But Stingers head coach Mickey Donovan is more forthright: “Mike came out big for us. He played like he was the best player in the country.”

At last year’s Shrine Bowl, Concordia kicker Treloar kicked a 45-yard field goal to put the Stingers up by two points with 27 seconds left. The veteran from Manitoba connected on three field goals and a single, for a total of 10 points.

Will the 2015 Shrine Bowl be an airshow, with Treloar kicking his way to another Concordia victory, or a ground offensive, led by Charland’s nimble hands?

Head down to the Stingers Stadium on the Loyola Campus at 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 19, to find out.
