Warrior Wrap-Up: September 14, 2012
The women’s rugby team mauled the Brock Badgers 33–15 in their second game of the season. They improve to a 2–0 record, having trounced Trent 38–17 a couple of days prior to that contest.
Brock opened scoring early but Waterloo took to the driver’s seat the rest of the game. Two players, Natasha Vrablic and Sarah Jane Garland, had outstanding games with two tries each. Rachel Brown and captain Briana Cunningham filled out the rest of the score sheet for the Warriors.
The team finds their next scrum against the Guelph Gryphons on Sept. 15 and will try to keep their undefeated mini-streak at home.
The men’s rugby team have evened out their record to 1–1 after the win against the RMC Paladins. The Warriors played at home and defeated the winless Paladins 29–13.
Although the scores are separated by a wide margin, the game was held close all the way up to the middle of the second half.
However, the Warriors came out the victor when Richard Lebel and Tyler Haladuick punched in their late tries.
The men will take a week off and then resume play on Sept. 22 to face Guelph.
After a match played on the defensive, the Waterloo women’s soccer team fell to the Laurier Golden Hawks. The Warriors got shut out 2–0 after putting forth a gallant effort.
The match was held at an even plane until the Hawks broke the Warriors late into the first half. Laurier added a second goal partway through the second half.
It was a one-sided affair on offence, having a 11–1 shot ratio in favour of the Hawks, who are ranked seventh in Canada. The Warriors look to step it up against Windsor on Sept. 15.
Men’s soccer has gotten off to a rocky start and it continued as they dropped their fourth match to the Laurier Golden Hawks.
The Warriors stumbled early as the Hawks scored to make it a 1–0 game midway through the first. They added to their lead late in the second but Waterloo answered soon after. There would be no equalizer as Laurier went on to win 2–1.
The Warriors will travel to Windsor and try to go for the win against the Lancers on Sept. 15.
The McMaster Marauders left the Warriors downtrodden with a tough loss, being beaten 68–21. The heavy-handed loss found nine different Marauders with touchdowns. There was also a disparaging difference in total offensive yards where McMaster had 599 to Waterloo’s 238.
The game started off promising heading into the second quarter, tied at 7–7. The game went off the handle after that when McMaster started to score consistently.
The Warriors will look past the loss and try to get the win against Guelph on Sept. 15.
The men’s baseball team opened their season on a lacklustre note as they lost 10–2 against Western Mustangs.
Head coach Tim Peg said that the pitching was good but the defence let the team down. There were seven unearned runs from five Warrior errors.
The Mustang pitcher, Adam Paish, lasted seven innings with two runs allowed on six hits and four strikeouts and no walks, which kept the Warrior offence at bay.
The Warriors’ next task will be to seek retribution in Milton on Sept. 16 against the Brock Badgers and Queen's Gaels.
