The second-year Vike scored 35 points in six games and was also strong defensively, helping UVic outscore their opponents 199-15.

The fourth-year Vike recorded 15 points on three tries in the six games the Vikes played in, while also forming the spine of a Vikes defence that allowed just 19 points against.
