Struggle for supremacy

Vanier Cup memories

 

U of S Huskies slotback Graeme Bell is tackled by a Laval University Rouge et Or defender during the 40th Vanier Cup national football championship at Hamilton's Ivor Wynne Stadium Nov. 27.

The Huskies fought a valiant battle but they ran into the Rouge et Or's impenetrable defence. The Huskies lost 7-1, in the lowest-scoring Vanier Cup game ever.

Huskie fans flocked to Hamilton for the game, and about 300 packed into the Physical Activity Complex on the U of S campus to watch the game on big-screens.

The U of S Huskies took not only a fighting spirit with them to Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton Nov. 27, but also a lot of family, friends, University alumni and other enthusiastic fans.

Here are a few of the sights that greeted Huskie fans at this year's Vanier Cup - the most defensive battle ever waged in the national football championship.
