Jamin Hodgkins played his part to help Canada secure an impressive comeback victory over Chile at the Under-20 Canada Conference in Ontario.

The Bermudian kicked two conversions as the hosts rallied from an eleven-point deficit to edge their opponents 25-24 in a tight encounter.

Hodgkins, whose mother is Canadian and father Bermudian, opened the scoring at the Guelph University on a scrum drive.

On the spot: Jamin Hodgkins, who kicked two conversions in Canada’s 25-24 victory over Chile in the Under-20 Canada Conference

Chile hit back and surged into a 10–3 lead before Hodgkins split the posts to reduce the deficit to four points at the interval.

However, the visitors regained control and gave themselves a 17-6 advantage early in the second half before Canada mounted another fightback.

The lead swapped hands three times heading down the final stretch, with Hodgkins assisting in Sol Jacques’s game-winning try that ultimately decided a thrilling affair.

Matt Klimchuk and Ethan Jurgeneit accounted for Canada’s remaining tries.

The hosts will now be keen to maintain their winning ways when they face Uruguay in their final match of the tournament on Tuesday.

Hodgkins, who attends Cardiff Metropolitan University in Wales, and has represented Bermuda at under-19 level, made his debut for Canada in a 32-24 defeat against Zimbabwe at the University of Guelph last Saturday.
