Dillon Wamsley (London, Ont.) also had a record setting night for the Gaels as his 52-yard field goal tied the Gaels longest field goal record set by Blaine Shore in 1979.
"I really thought there were a lot of good things tonight," said head coach Pat Sheahan after the game. "They were undermanned tonight but there was some great execution. Guys really made some great plays and we had some new faces in there on defence and they played pretty well."
Doug Corby (Burlington, Ont.) finished with three touchdowns, two receiving and one on a return, to lead the Gaels while Jesse Andrews (Arnprior, Ont.), Daniel Heslop(Scarborough, Ont.) and Jonah Pataki (Wallaceburg, Ont.) all ran for over 100 yards each. Billy McPhee (Burlington, Ont.) was 12-15 with 215 yards and three touchdowns all coming in the first half.
Waterloo was led by Brian Chris who threw for 195 yards and two touchdowns. Glorian Ganza and Christian Lewis hauled in both scores from Chris and Alexander Doczi added his own on the ground.
In the first quarter the Gaels scored early and often. Heslop started things off with a 42-yard run for a touchdown and McPhee followed up with a 63-yard connection toGiovanni Aprile (Scarborough, Ont.).
A Corby punt-return 53 yards for a touchdown was followed by Cory Dyer (Gananoque, Ont.) who added a touchdown off a fumble recovery to bring the Gaels lead to 28-0.
After the Warriors conceded a safety Wamsley closed out the first quarter with his record tying 52-yard field goal and the Gaels were out in front 33-0 after one.
Ryan Granberg (Sherwood Park, Alta.) started the second quarter with a five-yard rushing score and the Warriors got their first points on the board right after. Christian Mahler blocked Wamsley's punt attempt and the Warriors recovered. Chris then connected with Ganza for a 10-yard touchdown.
It was all Gaels afterwards with McPhee connecting on passing touchdowns to both Corby and Scott Macdonell (Montreal) to close out the first half up 54-7.
The second half saw Andrews add a pair of rushing scores and Corby nab his third touchdown of the night. Waterloo added two more scores as Chris connected with Lewis and Doczi ran in a two-yard score after the Warriors took a fumble to inside the Gaels 10.
The Gaels finished with a 78-21 final, just two points shy of tying their all-time high for points scored in a game.
Next up for Queen's is their final home game of the season at a sold out Richardson Stadium for the second homecoming of the year.
