Men’s soccer takes six points from weekend

After a 1-0 win against the Royal Military College Paladins on Saturday and a 3-1 win over the Trent Excalibur at Richardson Stadium on Sunday, the men’s soccer team sits tied for first spot in the OUA East with the University of Toronto Varsity Blues.

The RMC game’s lone goal came 11 minutes in courtesy of midfielder Jordan Brooks. Brooks picked up his second goal of the weekend against the Excalibur, adding to the two goals already scored by midfielder Michael Arnold and striker Andrew Colosimo.

The Gaels will look to repeat Sunday’s success when they travel to Peterborough on Saturday to play the Excalibur again, before coming back to Richardson on Sunday to host the Ryerson Rams.

Gaels beat biggest rivals, lose following games

The women’s lacrosse team achieved a great feat on Saturday, beating the reigning gold-medalist Wilfred Laurier Golden Hawks for the first time in six years by an 11-7 scoreline. The Gaels’ momentum didn’t last, though, as they dropped a 13-9 decision to the Western Mustangs and a 14-12 decision to the University of Toronto Varsity Blues.

Attack Jackie Byers recorded hat-tricks against the Golden Hawks and Mustangs. Midfielder Lisa McLaughlin also recorded hat-tricks against the Golden Hawks and Varsity Blues.

The Gaels will look to get back to last year’s form on Saturday when they play the Guelph Gryphons and the McGill Martlets in Montreal.
