The Aurora Barbarian first women are picking up right where they left off.
Aurora’s representatives in the top-tier Ontario Women’s League played to a 2 – 0 record to open the season after an eight-try effort against the Toronto Scottish at Fletcher’s Fields on Thursday, putting up a 55 – 24 win after a heavy-scoring second half.
The win came just four days after a whooping of the Markham Irish in the season opener, where Aurora rode fourteen tries to an 86 – 0 shutout.
The 2017 OWL finalists are tied atop the leaderboard with the Toronto Saracens, who have also opened to a 2 – 0 record.
The women return to the field on Saturday to take on the 1 – 1 Toronto Nomads.
The Aurora men were able to pick up their first win of the season following a slow start, riding three tries to a 23 – 14 win over the Barrie RFC on Thursday.
Both the Barbs and the Ajax Wanderers take a 1 – 1 record into their 3 p.m. matchup at Fletcher’s on Saturday.
