Chilliwackians help Bisons to Hardy Cup crown

CIS football rookie Evan Foster had a solid game as his Manitoba Bisons beat the Calgary Dinos 27-15.

Chilliwack native Evan Foster helped his Manitoba Bisons win the Hardy Cup last Saturday.

The Bisons downed the Calgary Dinos 27-15 in the Canada West university football championship, played at McMahon Stadium in Calgary.

Foster, playing on the defensive line, recorded two solo tackles and a fumble recovery for the stifling Bison D.

Manitoba recovered two fumbles and had five interceptions.

The Bison roster includes several Chilliwackians.

Nick Westad (W.J. Mouat) is a second year defensive lineman.

Brandon Barrat (W.J. Mouat) is a first-year linebacker and GW Graham grad Jake Creasey is a rookie receiver.

This is the first Hardy Cup win for Manitoba since 2007.

That year they went on to claim the Vanier Cup as national champs.

The Bisons now prepare to face the University of Montreal Carabins Saturday, with the winner moving on to the Vanier Cup final.
