They "Met" Their Waterloo

by Alex Vratsanos and George Barany

This "late-week difficulty" sports-themed puzzle was constructed in parallel to Mighty KC, and shares its four theme answers [albeit with different clues].  However, it is a far more open grid, with a lower word count (70 words), and some unusual architectural features.  The puzzle is released on the same date as one of us (A.V.) has a puzzle in the Sunday New York Times magazine. After completing the puzzle (spoiler), learn more about the puzzle's theme by consulting its companion puzzle and the links provided therein.
