Mac Dominates OUA Weekly Awards

McMaster quarterback Kyle Quinlan had a sensational game as he led the Marauders to a 45-6 victory over the Calgary Dinos in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport’s Mitchell Bowl on Saturday (Nov. 17).

The win sent the Marauders to the 48th Vanier Cup game this coming weekend. Quinlan’s performance earned him Ontario University Athletics Pioneer Energy Men’s Athlete of the Week.

Quinlan, a fifth-year pivot completed 25 of 35 passes (71% completion rate) for 412 yards. Three of those tosses were for touchdown. When he wasn’t displaying his arm, Quinlan put his legs to use, rushing 11 times for 50 yards (4.5 yard average) and three touchdowns.

His six all-purpose touchdown performance set a CIS playoff record, earning him, not surprisingly, player of the game honours. On top of those two tributes, Quinlan was named OUA offensive football player of the week.

The female athlete award goes to fifth-year guard Sasha Polishchuk (Richmond, B.C.), who was a force for the Laurentian Lady Vees against Windsor and Western this past weekend.

In a losing effort against the top-ranked Windsor Lancers, Polishchuk led the game with 26 points, nine assists and three steals. On Saturday night against the Western Mustangs, Polishchuk found herself dominating the box score once again as she recorded a double-double with 38 points and 11 rebounds. She also added a game-high six assists and two steals as the Lady Vees rolled over the Mustangs 74-64.

Polishchuk currently leads the OUA in scoring with 25 points per game.

Besides Quinlan, two other Marauders were singled out for their efforts Saturday against Calgary. The OUA’s defensive player of the week award goes to cornerback Steve Ventresca.

On a defensive unit that had several stars in the Mitchell Bowl victory, Ventresca (Hamilton) may have shone the brightest. The third-year veteran had nine solo tackles and two pass break-ups, while supplying blanket coverage on the Calgary receiving corps. Coach Stefan Ptaszek said it seemed like Ventresca was all over the field making plays.

On special teams, Trevor Gary was noted for his downfield coverage.

Playing with wild abandon, Gary (Mississauga) led the Marauder kick coverage team. Gary had two solo tackles and was the key player disrupting the Dino return team and not allowing Calgary to gain field position on change of possession.

Marauders vs Laval Vanier Cup Rematch

Marauders, Laval in a rematch for Vanier Cup

No. 1 McMaster will defend its 2011 Vanier Cup title as they knocked off the No. 3 Calgary Dinos, 45-6, at Ron Joyce on Saturday night.

The Marauders make their second straight Vanier appearance to face the No. 2 Laval Rouge et Or in a rematch of last year`s Canadian Interuniversity Sport national championship, won by McMaster in overtime, 41-38, in Vancouver. Earlier Saturday, Laval dumped No. 9 Acadia, 42-7, for its third consecutive trip to the final.

The win also extends McMaster`s CIS record consecutive win streak to 21 games before a crowd of 5,442.

Kyle Quinlan (South Woodslee), who was named the game’s most valuable player, was involved in 36 of the Marauders 45 points tossing three touchdowns and rushing for another three on the ground. He finished with 412-yards passing on 25 of 35 attempts. The fifth-year senior also rushed for an additional 50 yards on 11 carries.

Kyle Quinlan “The bigger the game the better he plays and that’s for his entire career. That’s not just once or twice.” said McMaster head coach Stefan Ptaszek about his Hec Crighton nominee quarterback. “He comes up big on the biggest stage.”

McMaster`s defence stymied Calgary`s offence, which was ranked No. 1 in almost every offensive category heading into the Churchill Cup game, posting just 200 total yards and only six points. Dinos running back Steve Lumbala of Calgary finished with just 39 yards on 14 carries while Canada West MVP Eric Dzwilewski of Boise, Idaho, threw for just 114 yards making 10 completions on 21 attempts.

CIS regular season sack leader Ben D’Aguilar (Hamilton) racked up three of the five sacks surrendered by Calgary while Aram Eisho of Hamilton tallied a game high 10 solo tackles. Defensive back Steve Ventresca (Hamilton) also posted nine tackles and two pass breakups. Joey Cupido (Hamilton) was the lone Marauder to intercept Dzwilewski, returning it 49 yards late in the fourth quarter.

Quinlan was proud of what the Marauders could do on the defensive side of the ball.

“It was wild,” said Quinlan. “There was a sense it might be a shootout if we do our job and two high scoring offences going head to head. Our defence shut that up pretty quickly.”

“Those kids were on the bit all day, we gave up things horizontally and nothing vertical” said Ptaszek on the Marauders defensive play. “[Calgary] were out of sorts all day. That’s a tribute to the game plan and the kids playing their hearts out.”

Rob Babic (Oakville) was the game’s top receiver and favorite Quinlan target making 10 receptions for 156 yard and converting one touchdown in the win for the Marauders.

McMaster scored 37 unanswered points, starting midway through the second quarter, to push the Marauders into the Vanier Cup appearance.

In the end, Calgary came undone in the second quarter committing eight penalties for a loss of 66 yards helping McMaster post 17 points in that quarter on route to the win. In total, the Dinos were called for 17 penalties which cost them 127 yards.

“We spoke about penalties all year and it came back to bite us today,” said Calgary head coach Blake Nil. “Our defence came out strong but got worn out and the offence just couldn’t get it started today.”

Quinlan’s first rushing touchdown came after two crucial penalties by Calgary as time expired in the opening frame making the score 7-3 at the time.

McMaster blew the game open late in the second quarter after scoring 14 points twice within 58 seconds. Quinlan punched in a one-yard run on the first score then found Brad Fochesato (Windsor) to make the score 24-4 heading into the half. The Marauders would go on to punch in 21 more points in the second half while Calgary would must just a safety with a 1:17 left to close the game’s scoring at 45-6.

The special price for Vanier Cup tickets is $40.00 at the McMaster business office in the David Braley Athletic Centre beginning on Sunday. The office opens at noon.

Quinlan Breaks All-Time McMaster Record!

McMaster ends regular season unbeaten

Source: Michael Grobe – October 21, 2012 (Hamilton Scores)

The win marks McMaster’s first undefeated regular season since 2003 when the Marauders rolled to an unblemished regular season record and a Yates Cup victory. With Calgary’s loss to Regina on Saturday, McMaster finishes the regular season as the only undefeated team in Canadian Interuniversity Sport. The win was the Marauders 18th in a row going back to Week 3 of the 2011 season and is one shy of the CIS record set by Laval from 2004 to 2005 .

Quinlan capped the 2012 season by breaking McMaster’s all-time passing touchdown mark. The South Woodslee native connected for his 60th TD toss to surpass Ben Chapdelain who played for the Marauders from 1997-2001.

The Marauders’ passer, who finished the game going 16-for-19 with 217 yards, the one throwing touchdown, and two rushing majors, was pleased with the perfect season, but was already focused on the 2012 playoff run.

Klyle Quinlan

“It’s something we can celebrate for a little bit, but this is a veteran group and we know better than to be too happy with that,” said Quinlan. “We are looking forward to the playoffs – being 8-0 and lose out in the first round doesn’t mean anything. We have to go out and win them all now.”

The Marauders’ defence shut down the Golden Hawk offensive attack allowing just 121 yards. The shutout was Mac’s first since Sept. 26, 2008 against York.

Laurier also conceded two safety touches.

Joey Cupido

McMaster’s Joey Cupido of Hamilton was the top defensive player posting seven tackles and collecting the lone interception of the game for a 29 yard return.

“[The defence] worked their butts off putting a zero on the board and that means something,” said Marauders’ head coach Stefan Ptaszek. “They’ve given up the fewest points in the OUA and I think that means something to them as well; they deserve to be recognized as, if not the best group in Ontario, then one of the best.”

Quinlan’s record breaking toss came with 5:10 remaining in the second quarter when he found Josh Vandeweerd (Burlington) on a one-yard pass to make the score 24-0 at the time.

Tyler Crapigna of Nepean, Ont. opened the scoring with a 43-yard field goal at 8:41 of the first quarter.

Tyler Capigna

Backup quarterback Marshall Ferguson (Kingston) converted a five-yard pass to Dahlin Brooks (Kitchener) to make the score 33-0 with five seconds remaining in the second quarter. He also added a rushing touchdown midway through the fourth quarter to close the scoring. He finished 13-for-17 with 153-yards passing and one touchdown in relief of Quinlan.

McMaster earns a bye during next week’s OUA quarter final games and will return to action on Nov. 3 at 4:30 p.m. Next week Windsor will battle Western in London while Laurier will take on Queen’s in Kingston.

Guelph Gryphons also have a first-round bye.

NOTES: This is the fourth time in McMaster history that the Marauders have finished with a perfect season; the others were 1984, 2002, and 2003… Announced attendance at Les Prince Field at Ron Joyce Stadium was 2,213.

This catch by Josh Vandeweerd sent quarterback Kyle Quinlan into Mac’s record books. 60th Career Passing Touchdown Congratulations Kyle Quinlan!

Kyle Quinlan led the McMaster Marauders to a perfect 8-0 season rushing for two touchdowns and throwing for another in a 43-0 Ontario University Athletics win over Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks on Saturday (Oct. 20).

Mac Snares Three OUA Football Honours

He’s Back!

Source: Ontario University Athletics– October 1, 2012 [More Sports: Hamilton Scores] Not that McMaster quarterback Kyle Quinlan has been away. He’s back for the second straight week as Ontario University Athletics offensive football player of the week for the period ending Sept. 30. Quinlan led the Marauders to a 33-27 victory over the No. 6 Western Mustangs. The fifth-year pivot did damage with both his throwing arm and his legs as the game’s leading rusher with 145 yards on 10 carries with one touchdown. In the air, he completed 18 of 32 passes (56 percent completion rate) for 247 yards and two touchdowns. The South Woodslee, Ont. native remains interception free five games into the season and the win keeps McMaster in possession of first-place in OUA. And a good offence appreciates a good defence. Which is why Quinlan’s teammate, Nick Shorthill, is this week’s defensive stalwart. The Marauders linebacker was a defensive force for McMaster as the Marauders spoiled Western’s Homecoming with the win. The second-year player was all over the field making plays. The Nobleton, Ont. native registered 11 tackles, 10 of which were solo efforts. He also had three quarterback sacks as the McMaster defence applied constant pressure on Western’s quarterbacks. With Mac offence and defence taking individual weekly honours, it seems only appropriate that the entire Marauders were named the Pizza Pizza OUA Men’s Team of the Month for September. The Marauders have held the No. 1 spot in Canada since the start of the 2012 Canadian Interuniversity Sport football season. With a 5-0 record, the defending Vanier Cup champions have defeated two top ten opponents. The Marauders sit in the top ten in the nation in nearly every statistical category and Quinlan has thrown for over 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns in just five games. OUA special teams players is Chris Patrician of Queen’s Gaels. The third-year receiver broke Saturday’s game against the Ottawa Gee-Gees wide open with a 91-yard punt return at 9:57 in the second quarter. The Toronto native’s runback put the No. 5 Gaels up 11-0 in a game that they would eventually take, 32-25. The OUA female team of the month award went to the University of Ottawa women’s soccer team opened the 2012 season ranked third in CIS. An early season definitive 3-0 win over the defending national champions from Queen’s vaulted them on a course to the top of the national rankings. The team’s 10-0-1 record has been bolstered by an OUA-best 35 goals, while giving up only a single marker against. The Gee-Gees have won six straight games and have an eight point lead over the second place team in the OUA east division.
