Playing the final game of their regular season on the road, and with playoff positioning riding on the result, the Marauders delivered a no-nonsense performance Sunday.

McMaster had 10 different players cross the try line, with the trio of Britni French, Katie McLeod and Tia Svoboda racking up multiple tries, in a 96-0 demolition of the Western Mustangs in London.

French and McLeod each scored three tries apiece, with the latter adding a convert for a total of 17 points.

For her part, Svoboda crossed the try line twice and made good on seven converts to rack up 24 points, while rookie wing Ila Bett also scored a pair of tries.

Rounding out the scoring on a rampant afternoon, Taylor Price, Stacey Warner, Bri English, Madeline Drinovac, Maddy Coathup and Zoe Spronk all found themselves inside the in-goal area once on Sunday.

With their win, the Marauders improved to 2-2 in conference play, and will play host to an OUA quarterfinal at Ron Joyce Stadium on Saturday, October 5.
