Xhuti gives Mac men soccer win

The McMaster men’s soccer team’s defence of their 2011 Ontario University Athletics title started on a positive note on Wednesday (Sept. 5) with a 3-1 win over the Waterloo Warriors.

Third-year Paterson Farrell (Oakville) gave the Marauders their first goal in the final minute of the first half.

In the second half, Andi Kararaj tied the game at the 60th minute. Last year’s OUA West Rookie of the Year, Gersi Xhuti, (Etobicoke) would give the Marauders their first win of the season with two goals just four minutes apart in the 79th and 83rd minutes.

McMaster will host the Windsor Lancers on Saturday at 3:15 p.m. at Ron Joyce Stadium in their home opener.
