"Buster" Brown boots winning kick as football Redmen rally in Sherbrooke
SHERBROOKE -- Findlay Brown of Winnipeg, Man., kicked three field-goals, including the winning tally on a 15-yard placement with 26 seconds remaining as the visiting McGill Redmen rallied for an 18-16 victory over Sherbrooke before 3,875 on Saturday.
It was only McGill's third lifetime victory in 10 road games at Sherbrooke but their second straight, including last year's 19-18 nail-biter on Sept. 10, 2016.
Brown, a 19-year-old management sophomore, also connected on distances of 39 and 35 yards, respectively, to give his troops leads of 3-0 and 8-0 in the first and second quarters.
The Redmen, who improved to 1-1 in the RSEQ conference, will play at Concordia (1-1) next Saturday. Sherbrooke, which dropped to 0-3, is now in danger of missing the playoffs in the five-team Quebec league. They have a bye next week before traveling to Montreal to confront the No.2-ranked Carabins (2-0) on Sept. 22.
