WATERLOO, ON –  After a week-long build-up of anticipation for this year’s edition of the Battle of Waterloo, it was the No.5 Laurier Golden Hawks coming away with a convincing 71-24 victory over No. 9 Waterloo Warriors at Warrior Field on Saturday afternoon.

With the Golden Hawks only up by four points with just under seven minutes remaining in the first half, the game was developing into the close contest that many of the black and gold clad fans of the resurgent Warriors were hoping it would be.
