Laurier football weekly update

201610006-kha-vo-laurier-mfoot-vs-toronto_-169Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

What are you doing Saturday, November 5th at 1pm? CLICK TO WATCH

Our biggest selling feature here at Wilfrid Laurier University is the community feel, school spirit and the family atmosphere. Let’s show it Saturday at 1pm as we take on the McMaster Marauders in the OUA Semifinals here at University Stadium.

McMaster defeated the Guelph Gryphons 17-11 in the OUA quarter finals this past Saturday. They are one of the two teams that we did not face during the regular season, but we did face them twice last year and also scrimmaged with them in the spring.

The Marauders are led by quarterback Asher Hastings, RB Chris Pezzetta, WRs Dan Petermann and Danny Vandervoort on offence and on defence they have two terrific defensive ends: Mark Mackie and Mike Kashak.

Plan to arrive early as we will be hosting a pre-game reception starting at 11:00am in the gymnasium at the stadium. Snacks will be provided and there will be a cash bar.
