The McMaster Marauders took a pair of victories on Saturday when they took to the pitch at Varsity Soccer Field in St. Catharines.

Mac’s women have been on a hot streak as of late and that continued against Brock, striking a 2-1 win for their fourth consecutive victory. Stephanie Roberts and Emma Czernuszka each potted a goal in the first half to gain the win for the visitors.

With the result, the Marauders improved to 6-3-3 on the year and hold on to the third sport in the OUA West standings, a point ahead of York who has a game in hand.

Roberts’ goal was her ninth of the season which places her fourth in the conference scoring, just two behind the OUA leader, Jenny Wolever of Queen’s. Her 26th minute goal finished off the play that Amy Froome had set up.

The eventual game winning goal came just prior to halftime when midfielder Czernuszka netted her second of the season and gave McMaster a 2-0 lead.

Brock would make a game of it, scoring in the 66th minute but they were unable to get any closer.

In the men’s match, one goal was all that was needed for the victory. Fortunately for the Marauders it was posted on their side of the scoreboard.

Miles Green scored his first career goal with McMaster in the 90th minute, just moments before the final whistle, delivering a heartbreaking defeat to one of the school’s oldest nemesis.

The Mac men played most of the second half down a man after defender Anton Buretic picked up his second yellow card of the match in the 46th minute and was sent off, leaving the Marauders with just 10 players on the field.

Goalkeeper Tristan Joyce stopped all eight shots he faced on the afternoon, earning his third clean sheet of the season.

Like the women’s team, the men upped their record to 6-3-3 on the campaign and currently hold third place in the OUA West standings with points in three consecutive matches.

Both Marauders teams have four games remaining in the regular season schedule with their next match being on Sunday afternoon in Waterloo where they will face the Laurier Golden Hawks. The women will start the action off at 1pm with the men following shortly after the conclusion of the first game.
