The highs and lows of an OUA season were felt within one week! One week we are excited to say that we have won our third straight game in the Battle of Waterloo, which was a 53-50 three overtime thriller and a week later we lose to Carleton 22-10, ending our season at 4-4. Some years 4-4 and even 3-5 will get you into the playoffs, but that is not the case this season. Laurier, Waterloo and Carleton are all 4-4, but based on tiebreaking procedures/rules we are out, while the other two teams live to play at least another week.
