The McMaster Marauders soccer teams were looking to make it a Thanksgiving weekend clean sweep on Sunday.

Both Mac teams picked up victories on Saturday against Brock and looked to do it again when they faced the Laurier Golden Hawks on Sunday. However, neither team would walk away with the three points, but did earn a point in a draw.

The women’s team was up first on the crisp afternoon taking to the pitch at University Stadium in Waterloo. Amy Froome would get the games opening goal, her second of the season, with an assist from Stephanie Roberts in the 30th minute.

Mac held on to that lead through until halftime and into the second half, but Laurier would even the score in the 54th minute on a penalty kick.

While both teams had chances to get the win, neither were able to put another one past the keeper.

The lady Marauders remain in fourth place in the OUA West division with a record of 6-3-4. They now sit a point behind the York Lions who has a game in hand on McMaster. The Marauders are five points in the clear of Laurier who sits in fifth.

For the men, they bookend their match with goals sandwiching a pair of Golden Hawk goals to earn a draw.

Yunus Mollayev put the Marauders on the board first in the 22nd minute on a penalty kick after Laurier committed a foul within the box. That lead would only stand for about 17 minutes when the Golden Hawks tied up the match.

Just moments into the second half, Laurier would take their first and only lead of the day off a corner kick.

With the clock ticking down McMaster looked to solve the Laurier keeper once again to even it up. Then as the scoreboard turned to the 75th minute Antonio Sereno would get the equalizer. From their the defenders took over the game with Laurier the only team that would manage to get another shot off and on net through the final 15 minutes to end the game in a draw.

The draw gives the Marauders a 6-3-4 record on the year, moving them into third place ahead of Western by a single point and two points ahead of Waterloo. Western does have a game in hand on McMaster though.

The Marauders are back in action on Saturday October 13 when they host the Waterloo Warriors at Ron Joyce Stadium on the McMaster University campus. The women’s game begins at 1pm with the men’s game starting shortly after the conclusion of the women’s match.
