U Sports: McMaster punished

DAY

The McMaster University football team was forced to give up their first win of the year because the Marauders played an ineligible player. 

This was announced by U Sports on Friday.

“The ineligibility is due to an administrative oversight in the paperwork involved in transferring a student between institutions. This is a most unfortunate circumstance,” explained the university establishment in a press release, while refusing to reveal the identity of the player in question.

The ineligible athlete was from the formation of the Marauders for the first two duels of this campaign. They had lost their first game against the Carleton Ravens and then defeated the York Lions. 

The latter were therefore awarded a 1-0 win. This is their first victory since the 2019 season.
