Over the years, the QEW rivalry has done the see-saw from thrilling to boring, depending on who punched who and how many of the games had come in the prior weeks.

With the Bulldogs moving to St. John’s at the end of this year, today marked the last time that the two teams will face each other. But with the last playoff spot in the balance, the stakes haven’t ever been higher.
