5 years

And now, the Vanier

The Golden Hawks dismantled the Acadia Axmen 31 – 10 to win the Uteck Bowl. The win marked the first time in a decade that an OUA team would go on to compete in the Vanier Cup.

With 12 veterans making up the team’s key players, it would be the last opportunity for them to play in purple and gold.

The Hawks would be returning to Vanier for the first time since 1991, when they beat Mount Allison, to play the Saskatchewan Huskies who were appearing in their third Vanier Cup game in four years, and winning the title three times in the 1990s.

The Hawks went on to win the Vanier cup in 2005, edging the favoured Huskies 24-23, capping off an undefeated season.
