Doug Corby's record-breaking performance leads East to victory


Posted: May 10th, 2015 @ 9:16am


Queen’s Golden Gaels receiver Doug Corby set an East-West Bowl game record with three touchdown receptions, leading the East to a 29-21 victory over the West in the 13th annual exhibition football game Saturday in Montreal.

Corby caught four passes for a game-best 131 yards, and he also returned four punts for 25 yards.

Dillon Wamsley, the only other Gael in the game, kicked four converts, but he missed his only field goal attempt.

Corby opened the scoring in the game’s fifth minute, catching a first-down pass from Mount Allison quarterback Brandon Leyh and taking it 63 yards for the score. His second touchdown, a seven-yard catch of a Drew Burko pass midway through the third quarter, took the East’s lead to 22-14.

Oddly, Burko was playing on the East team though he’s a member of the Saskatchewan Huskies.

After the West again drew within a point of the lead, Corby again connected with Leyh for a 50-yard score at 5:17 of the fourth quarter to complete the scoring.

The game serves as a showcase affair for Canadian university players eligible for next year’s Canadian Football League draft. Corby will be entering his fourth season with the Gaels this fall.

“In a game like this, you don’t want to put too much pressure on yourself but at the same time, you know people are watching,” Corby said, in a release. “It was a fun game and a fun week to be a part of. There were a lot of great players here this week and I’m happy I was able to have a solid performance today.”

It was the fifth victory in the last six years for the East, a team comprising—in addition to Burko—players from the Atlantic and Quebec conferences, as well as Ottawa, Carleton, Queen’s and Toronto from Ontario University Athletics.

The West team was composed of players from the other seven OUA schools and teams from Canada West.

On a cloudy, 26-degree day in Montreal, the game was played before 1,512 spectators.
