They closed out the day with losses to Algonquin (27-12) and Conestoga (24-15).

OCAA women's rugby is on a bye for Thanksgiving weekend, before play resumes at Fleming - who also hosts the Championship - on Oct. 15.

The Double-Blue will take on Mohawk, Fleming, and St. Lawrence in the penultimate match day of the OCAA season.
