Andrew Hamilton ran for a Concordia record 221 yards and three touchdowns to lead the No. 6-ranked Concordia Stingers to a 41-13 victory over their crosstown rivals the McGill Redmen before 4003 fans at Concordia Stadium.

The previous Concordia single game rushing record belonged to all-Canadian Jean-Michel Paquette who collected 209 yards in a playoff game versus the Laval Rouge et Or in 2002. In the regular season Paquette has a game-high 171 yards on Oct. 11, 2003 versus the Montreal Carabins.

Hamilton, a Montreal native who has been living in the U.S. for the last 10 years, carried 20 times for 221 yards and three majors. His wife, Elizabeth, and one-year-old daughter Adrianna flew in from Miami to surprise him late last night and were on hand to see his record-setting performance.

Hamilton´s touchdowns came on runs of 30, three and 69 yards. It was his three-yard TD in the third quarter that broke open a tight game. The score was 16-13 before he scored with 28 seconds left to open the flood gates. The Stingers went on to score another 18 unanswered points in the final 15 minutes.

Hamilton was named the MVP of the game, which was both the 20th annual Shrine Bowl and the 38th annual Shaughnessy Cup. The latter is named for the late Frank Shaughnessy, an outstanding athlete who contributed to both institutions, and is symbolic of university football supremacy in Montreal.

Overall, Concordia rolled up 551 yards of offence - 336 yards rushing and 185 yards passing. McGill´s attack was good for just 277 yards - 282 yards passing and minus-five yards rushing.

Defensively, McGill´s Jean-Nicolas Carriere led all tacklers with seven solos and two assists. He was named the Redmen´s outstanding player. For Concordia, safety Junior Bishop and all-Canadian linebacker Patrick Donovan each had five tackles.

Concordia (5-0) visits the No. 1-ranked Laval Rouge et Or (5-0) next Sunday (RDS). McGill (1-4) hosts the Sherbrooke Vert et Or (2-3).

The main discussion right now is how McGill scored 21st in the World on THES (Concordia being no where on the list). You talk about how McGill lost to Concordia in some half-donkey football game or horse-shoe tossing competition. What is your problem? You´re constantly on this forum bad mouthing McGill. You sound like some jealous dude. I think Concordia is decent, but face it, it will never be listed in THES top 200. Even York has a better chance making it to the list. If you want to argue that Concordia is better than McGill, I invite you to provide some evidence rather than your inane remarks about how "Concordia beats McGill in pin-the-donkey competition" or "Concordia is better than McGill in everything". I presume you´re a Univeristy student, should you not be better at debating?

Concordians are TROLLS on the internet.

Do not reply them with a single word. They will get lost fast if you reply to them.

Once again, McGill is the best in Canada (THES 2006).

Not necessarily the best in canada. For medicine and law i agree. But for engineering, Waterloo is the best. For business i think it is Concordia. Science is between mcgill, mcmaster, and univ of toronto. no one cares about arts, etc.

No WAY is McGill best for law. McGill law school ranks poorly compared to almost every other law school. Even Ottawa law is more prestigious. I don´t think it´s true for medicine either but I´m not sure. Honestly there are very few times when I hear McGill is the best at any particular field. It´s just really good at everything.

Its funny how Mcgill students always talk about rankings yet they cannot give us some personal reasons why they like the school. I think the school sucks, the administration is awful and the profs just dont care for students. The only reason why Mcgill has its reputation is because of .... well if you ever attended Mcgill you would know why.

--> McGill law ranking according to who? You?

I don?t think it?s true for medicine either but I?m not sure. Honestly there are very few times when I hear McGill is the best at any particular field.

--> Fact: The faculty of medicine at McGill recieves the most funding of any faculty of medicine in Canada. You would not recieve this much funding if you were not good. Funding is a good indicator of performance.

It?s just really good at everything.

--> Agreed.

Concordia Hammers McGill Again)Its funny how Mcgill students always talk about rankings yet they cannot give us some personal reasons why they like the school.

--> I could provide you with many.

I think the school sucks, the administration is awful.

--> Yes the adminstration is awful.

and the profs just dont care for students.

--> That is because 1) they know McGillers are independent, and 2) they have other priorities ... say produce the best research. Did you know that on average (not total), McGill professors recieve more funding, publish more, and have higher impact than any other university in Canada (Research Infosource).

The only reason why Mcgill has its reputation is because of .... well if you ever attended Mcgill you would know why.

--> I attend McGill. Its reputation is well-deserved and have no idea what you´re refering to.
