McMaster’s recent award winners showed their credentials in the victory, as Russell Division All-Star Cindy Nelles led all scorers with 17 points on three tries and a convert, while Rookie of the Year Colleen Irowa added a try and All-Star Stephanie Black completed the scoring with two converts.

The win concludes McMaster’s 2013 campaign, as only the top two teams in OUA advance to the Canadian Interuniversity Sport championship.
