Pro Report | Sammy Malcolm leads Toronto to win over Hounds
By Jeff Vorva
Chicago Hounds fans may remember that name for a long time. And not for a good reason.
Malcolm was not just in the middle of things, he was the whole scoring show for Toronto as he tallied all Arrows points in a 27-26 victory over the Hounds on March 11 at snowy SeatGeek Stadium.
Both teams came into the Major League Rugby game winless, but put on an exciting show. There were nine lead changes on the night and Toronto (1-2-0) outlasted the Hounds (0-3-0)
Hounds player Luke Beauchamp told majorleague.rugby earlier in the week that his game is “massive.”
After Malcolm’s drop goal with three minutes left for the Arrows for what turned out to be the winner, it was a massive kick in the gut for the Hounds.
Malcolm, 26, entered this season the third highest scorer in MLR history with 320 points.
Week 3 honors
The Hounds made their SeatGeek debut on March 5 and lost a defensive battle, 14-10, to Utah.
Prop Charlie Abel and left lock Duke Krishnan were named to the MLR Team of the Week.
The two combined for 36 tackles for Chicago.
The Hounds host the Dallas Jackals at 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 18 in Bridgeview.
Could this be the week the Hounds get their first victory? The Jackals are 0-4-0 and dropped a 22-0 decision to San Diego on March 11.
