WATERLOO — So, Tristan Arndt, how’s the arm?

It was a legitimate question for the Wilfrid Laurier University quarterback —especially after he launched just six passes in the first half of Sunday’s clash against the University of Ottawa.

As it turns out, his limb is just fine.

“We did a really good job on the ground,” said the second-year pivot. “We didn’t want to get away from that.”

WATERLOO, ON – Buoyed by record-setting performances from receiver Kurleigh Gittens Jr. and defensive lineman Robbie Smith, the No. 7 Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks men’s football team defeated the No. 5 McMaster Marauders 40-15 on Saturday afternoon at University Stadium to clinch second place in the OUA standings.

Gittens Jr., a native of Ottawa, led the Hawks’ offensive barrage against the second-ranked defence in the country as he had 10 catches for 114 yards and a touchdown. In the process, he became the U SPORTS single-season receptions leader with 75 and Laurier’s single-season receiving yards leader with 953.
