No. 4 Guelph Gryphons @ No. 1 Queen’s Gaels

For a fifth straight season, the Queen’s Gaels and Guelph Gryphons have proven to be the heavy hitters in the OUA conference. The nationally-ranked squads have both conquered their respective paths through the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) competition and find themselves going head-to-head for glory at the 2022 Women’s Rugby Championship, with the final conference test coming on Friday, October 28 at 7:00 pm ET at Queen’s University’s Nixon Field.

Falling just shy of the century mark in scoring on the year, Kendra Cousineau’s incredible campaign was the centrepiece of another similarly strong season for Guelph. The Port Colborne, Ont. native finished second among the OUA scoring leaders with 96 points (nine tires, 24 conversations) and knows what it takes to claim victory on the banner season stage, with her all-star contributions of 2021 playing a large part in the team’s title a year ago.

When looking for the offensive sparkplug of the country’s top-ranked Gaels, Lizzie Gibson has delivered throughout the 2022 campaign. The second-year back row from Caledon, Ont. was the nation’s leader in scoring, contributing 14 tries and 53 conversions for Queen’s this season – good for 176 points overall – and will be looking to bring that same dynamic play to the pitch with an OUA gold medal on the line this weekend.
