The men’s and women’s ultimate frisbee teams competed in the division two national championships in Ottawa this weekend, with the women placing fifth and the men capturing the national title. The men’s team saw wins against Algonquin, Laurier, and second-seed Waterloo, followed by a quarter-final win over Sherbrooke, a semi-final win over McMaster, and taking down the University of Quebec in the finals.

The men’s hockey team fell in overtime on Saturday at the Seymour-Hannah in their regular-season home opener against York. Sammy Banga netted Brock’s third goal of the game — his first on the season. The Badgers gave up a whopping 53 shots, allowing four goals, giving goaltender Clint Windsor a season-high 49 saves on the night. The Badgers are now 0-3 on the season (0-2 in OUA play), and will travel to Montreal this weekend to play Concordia and McGill.

Both men’s and women’s golf teams competed in the OUA championships this weekend, with the men placing seventh and the women placing sixth.

Women’s rugby — though eliminated from the OUA playoffs last Friday after falling to York — travelled to Waterloo on Saturday to play Wilfrid Laurier, taking down the Golden Hawks by a score of 32-10. The Badgers will now play Western, with hopes of earning a spot in the top division of the OUA for next season.

Men’s rugby fell to Western 50-29 this weekend — and have now dropped three of their last four contests — after starting the season 3-0. The Badgers will play their final regular season game at home this Saturday against Trent at 1:00 p.m on Alumni Field. Trent is 0-7 on the season, giving up 266 points and only scoring 74 (according to the OUA website).

Women’s lacrosse wrapped up the regular season with a 1-2 weekend, with losses to Queen’s and Toronto and a win against UOIT. The Badgers will begin their OUA playoffs this Friday, where they will enter as the sixth overall seed in the tournament.

Men’s soccer fell to McMaster 1-0 on Sunday, their third loss in a row, and now sit at 5-8-1 going into the final weekend of the regular season. Brock will travel to Waterloo on Saturday and Sunday to play Waterloo and Laurier in hopes of finding themselves in a playoff spot at the end of the weekend.

Women’s soccer lost a 2-0 decision to McMaster on Sunday, their second loss in a row after falling to York on October 8th. The Badgers will visit Waterloo and Laurier to cap off their regular season schedule. As a result of an eligibility issue, the Badgers had to forefeit their first four games of the season, and will not be able to make the playoffs this season as they needed to win all of their final four games to qualify.
