Queen’s Gaels vs. York Lions

The Men’s OUA season is winding down, with only a couple games left for each team in the regular season. Only seven teams make the Men’s playoffs, and there is a large build-up of teams fighting for the final spot. The York Lions are one of those teams. Laurier sits in the last playoff spot, but Ryerson and Toronto both are between the Lions and that seventh place. On Sunday, they came up against one of the OUA’s strongest teams in the Queen’s Gaels. If they wanted to prove themselves, this was one of their final opportunities.

The game started quickly, as Queen’s enforced their blocking game early. Gaels’ 13 Michael Amoroso, while solidifying the middle block, also came through with a powerful quick early on. York responded with their own middle, 2 Felipe Humana-Paredes, hitting a quick right back.

On Sunday February 6th, the Queen’s Gaels and York Lions met to decide the top of the Women’s OUA. Going in, York had a slight advantage. However, if Queen’s were to win then the two teams would sport the exact same record with only a week left before playoffs. This was a clash of OUA powerhouses, and will likely be a preview to these teams meeting later in the playoff season.

Before the game, the York Lions honoured their graduating players. Their captain, 10 Sarah Sutton, and also 14 Sarah Holloway were both presented flowers and a framed recognition of their accomplishments. The incredible thing is that Holloway began her university career on the York basketball team before deciding to entirely change her athletic path. After the kind ceremony, the games got underway.
