The Concordia Stingers had an easy time at the Concordia Gymnasium on Thursday night, as they cruised to an 80-51 win over the Bishop’s Gaiters.

A high intensity Stingers team grabbed the Gaiters by the tail. They didn’t trail at any point in the game, racing to an 11-0 lead to start the game.

The end of the first quarter saw the Stingers up 23-7, then 36-16 by the end of the second. Bishop’s did their best to decrease the deficit, outscoring Concordia in the final quarter, but it was too little too late.

“We were ready for them,” said Stingers shooting guard Aurelie d’Anjou Drouin. “We wanted to use this game to work on our own & get better, and come back on McGill, Laval and UQAM.

“We’re going to see them again Saturday, so we have to come back hard.” she added.

The Stingers have made it a point to not overlook their rematch on Saturday, a road game at Bishop’s University. Players such as Marilyse Roy-Viau aren’t content to rest on Thursday night’s win, as the team looks improve on several aspects of their game as the season progresses.

“We’re still not satisfied.” admitted Roy-Viau. “We have big games coming up and we know we got to fix things on defence. Feels good to get a ‘W’ but you still got to work.” she continued.

The Stingers remain in fourth place in the Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec standings with three wins under their belt. Concordia will look to keep the last-place Gaiters winless on the season on Saturday.
