QUEEN'S 37 , BROCK 0
Gaels shut out Brock to open regular season
By Emily Suchanek - Queen's Sports Information
Bronwyn Corrigan (Waterloo, Ont.) led the No. 5-ranked Queen's Gaels with four tries in their 37-0 win over the Brock Badgers in OUA women's rugby action , Wednesday. The third-year lock had a career day as the Gaels cruised to the win in their first game at newly-renovated Nixon Field.
Gillian Pegg (Barrie, Ont.) put the first points on the board with a try in the second minute that originated from a ruck. The Gaels stole the ball and spun it wide giving Pegg the opportunity to put Queen's on the board.
Corrigan scored the second try of the game, going on a 15 yard run in the tenth minute. Twenty minutes later, excellent teamwork and communication by the Gaels allowed Pegg to score her second try, and a try by Nadia Popov (Newmarket, Ont.) in the 38th minute put Queen's up 20-0 at halftime.
The second half of the game saw Brock gain some momentum, as they entered the second half of the game with more energy. However, they were not able to break past the defensive tactic of the Gaels.
In the 65th minute of the game, Corrigan managed to break through the Badgers' defense to score her second try of the game. She went on to score two more tries in second half, in the 73rd and 77th minutes. A 74th-minute conversion by Danielle Underwood (Toronto, Ont.) rounded out the scoring.
“It was a good first league game,” said Gaels Head Coach Beth Barz. “In set pieces, our scrums played well and we moved the ball forward well, but we will need to improve on our rucks.”
In disappointing news, the Gaels lost veterans Mel Judges and Gill Pegg with broken legs. Get well and kick ass soon!
