It may be early, but the senior women Aurora Barbarians are looking ready to defend their Ontario Women’s League championship.

A ten try effort gave the Barbs a 60 – 25 victory over the Yeomen Lions in their season opener Saturday, played at Markham’s Fletcher’s Field.

The Guelph Red Coats and Waterloo County also picked up wins in the first week of league play, the first of ten scheduled games running until mid-July.

The senior men Barbarians visited Barrie for a friendly match on Saturday, falling 45 – 24. A rainy game at Jim Hamilton Field was controlled from the beginning by a try from Barrie’s Jesse Leadbetter, while Aurora failed to handle themselves defensively.

Next up for the female Barbs are the Toronto Scottish at Fletcher’s Field. The men opened their regular season on Saturday, visiting Stoney Creek.
The second women’s team also opens their season against the Scottish, following the first team’s game.
