Rugby

Women’s Rugby has maintained its spot as the best team in the country.

They finished the regular season undefeated on Oct. 7 with a 125-0 win over Trent. After earning a Round One OUA Bye last week, they will play their OUA quarterfinal game against Western at home on Nixon Field on Oct. 22 at 1 p.m.

Men’s Rugby faced off against the only other undefeated team, the Guelph Gryphons, last weekend.

They put up a solid fight and demolished the Gryphons 29-12. Queen’s now sits atop the OUA standings and will play their last regular season game on Oct. 23 against the Golden Hawks.

Soccer

Women’s Soccer sits second in the OUA east and is third-ranked in the country.

They blanked Trent to the tune of 5-0 last Saturday. Cecilia Way put up two points, and Jenna Matsukubo also found the back of the net. Matsukubo’s performance earned her Queen’s Athlete of the Week for week six. The Gaels will play two home games this weekend at Richardson Stadium.

Men’s Soccer tied Trent on Saturday night. They will finish out their season this weekend with a double header at home, hoping to improve on their record of 3-5-2.
