Marauders Spoil Warriors Black and Gold Day in Dominating Fashion

WATERLOO, Ont. - The McMaster Marauders had a dominating performance outscoring the Warriors 66-0 in front of 2,200 fans on black and gold day at Warrior Field.  The Marauders controlled the game with 348 rushing yards for 650 total yards compared to Waterloo's 165 total yards.  The Warriors fall to 0-2 on the season while McMaster remains perfect at 2-0.

McMaster's Asher Hastings caught for 211 yards while S. Kofi-Akuffo had a strong game on the ground, scoring his first OUA touchdown. Waterloo had a tough time offensively with Danny Silvestri running for 43 yards and Mike Dedys catching for 63 yards. Lucas McConnell and Jamie Cook shared pivot roles, going a combined 9-for-21 good for 92 yards.

McMaster wasted little time kick-starting their offence when Tyler Crapigna scored a 13-yard field goal 3:40 into the game. McMaster would dominate the run game early and force the Warriors defence to be left on the field much of the first quarter. The Marauders' Danny Vandervoort and Kingsley Amankwaa would each add a touchdown before the end of the first quarter to go ahead 17-0.

McMaster would add to the scoring in the second quarter with another field goal by Crapigna and a short touchdown run by Vandervoort to extend the lead to 27-0. Crapigna finished the contest with five field goals. Max Cameron had the catch of the game with a one-handed 37-yard gain, highlighting the Marauders abilities.
 
Heading into the third quarter down 38-0 the Warriors continued to struggle offensively as the Marauders defence stifled any attempts Waterloo put forth.  Greg Zaitz and Jordan Hoover were strong in defensive roles, making a combined seven unassisted tackles and 13 assisted tackles.
 
The Marauders' Chris Pezzetta, Aaron Baker, and Kofi Akuffo would all add majors in the second half to extend the lead and the Marauders would cruise to the 66-0 victory.
 
Second-string quarterback Lucas McConnell came in for relief of Jamie Cook in the second half and received player of the game honors for the Waterloo Warriors.

The 2-0 Marauders will return home next week to host the Carleton Ravens in week 3 of OUA action while Waterloo will visit their neighbors the Laurier Golden Hawks for a Saturday afternoon game on Sept. 13.
