Rugby players lead the way into the Pita Pit


Two Marauders’ rugby players pulled down the McMaster Pita Pit athlete of the week honours.

The female athlete of the week is Stephanie Black from the women’s team. In just her third career Canadian Interuniversity Sport’s game, the rookie Marauder helped McMaster win its second game of the season over the Trent Excalibur on Saturday (Sept. 15). The Ottawa native had a game-high 17 points on one try and six converts in the 47-7 win.

The male honours go to Andrew Ferguson. The third-year Social Sciences major led the Marauders’ men’s team to its first win of the season over the RMC Paladins.

The scrum-half scored 10 points in the first half on two converts and two penalty goals, and in the second would touch down for two tries and another two converts for a total of 25 points.

The Marauders took down the Paladins 39-19.
