Rugby left winless

Reading Time: 1 minute

Wilfrid Laurier University women’s rugby team was defeated Saturday afternoon against a very tough visiting Western Mustang squad by a score of 57-15 at University Stadium.

Western found the board early, scoring three tries in the first 21 minutes, but the Hawks managed to score a penalty goal and then a try before the end of the half.

However, another second half falter proved to be too much for the Hawks, as Western outscored the home team 26-7 in 40 minutes.

Jennifer Gilmour, Lauren Morris and Amanda Lewis found the scoreboard for the Hawks.

The team hopes to find their first win of the season as they take on the Waterloo Warriors Friday at Waterloo field.

They will finish off their season at home against the Brock Badgers— the only other team still at 0-4.
