@LU_SPAD Event: The SGA GC Party!

222On Sunday November 24th, third year SPAD students ran their event, The SGA GC Party! The event included the viewing of the 101st Grey Cup between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Saskatchewan Roughriders. The event also included a football themed menu, beverages, games, and trivia to keep all of those who attended entertained throughout the night. It was hosted at the Alumni Hall in the Fraser Building and the event ran from 5:30pm-10:30pm. Everyone in attendance had a very enjoyable evening.

The main event of the evening, the viewing of the 101st Grey Cup, ended in triumph for the Saskatchewan Roughriders and utter dismay for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. After a relatively uneventful first quarter ending in a 7-3 score in favour if the Roughriders, a second quarter scoring outburst took place. The Roughriders put up 24 points in the second quarter allowing only 3 points by the Tiger-Cats. In the third quarter the Ti-Cats put up 7 points and were able to hold Saskatchewan out of the end zone for the entire quarter. Finally, the fourth quarter saw 14 points by the Roughriders and 10 points by the Ti-Cats, ending the game in a 45-23 blowout by the Saskatchewan Roughriders over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Feel good story of the game was the running back for Saskatchewan, Kory Sheets, rushed for a record-breaking 197 yards over the course if the game and was awarded the MVP award of the Grey Cup.
