Fighting the rain down at Matt Anthony Field, the University of Ottawa women’s rugby team faced their strongest challenge yet this year in their crosstown rival Carleton Ravens.
“I’m happy from what I saw on the field, this was my first game at (the U of O) and I’m happy to see that the students are interested in rugby and come out to cheer us on.”
The University of Ottawa women’s rugby team lit up Matt Anthony field on Sept. 23, soundly beating the McGill Martlets 116–0. According to the U of O, this is a team record for highest-scoring game, and their first game to break 100 points.
The University of Ottawa women’s soccer team is off to a roaring start this year, with 5–1–1 record lifting the Gees to second in the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) East standings.
Since she’s taken over as head coach of the Gees in 2013, Boyd has succeeded in bringing the team one step closer to a national championship every year.
It was a hard-fought battle, but the Gee-Gees prevailed, proving why they’re the best team in their conference and perhaps the nation.
