McMaster Marauders, ranked No. 8 in the nation, dumped the Ottawa Gee-Gees, 41-7, on a rain-soaked Ron Joyce Stadium Saturday (Oct. 26) and advance to Ontario University Athletics semi-final play next week. McMaster quarterback Marshall Ferguson (Kingston) tossed two touchdowns and ran for another while Wayne Moore (Etobicoke) rushed for 140 yards on 22 carries in the win.

Ottawa mustered just 10 first downs and 30 rushing yards in the game as the Marauder defence stymied the Gee-Gee offence.

McMaster’s defence and special teams also chipped in two touchdowns with Jeremy Kyei (Hamilton) recovering a Gee-Gee fumble on a bad punt-snap while Steven Ventresca (Hamilton) intercepted Aaron Colbon (Ottawa) for a touchdown.

With the Guelph Gryphons beating the Windsor Lancers, 31-21, on Saturday, McMaster will meet the Western Mustangs in London, at TD Stadium, 4:30 p.m., kickoff. The semi-final game will air nationally on Sportsnet360.

McMaster scored on its first two drives of the game to build a 14-0 lead which would be all the offence needed.

Moore dominated the opening drive which saw McMaster cruise to 78 yards on nine plays. Ferguson capped the drive with a one-yard quarterback sneak but Moore did the heavy lifting rushing for 50 yards on six carries to set up the score.

On McMaster’s next possession, Ferguson tossed a 21-yard pass to Daniel Vandervoot (Barrie) to finish another nine play drive, this time for 79-yards.

Ottawa’s Aaron Colbon closed his Canadian Interuniversity Sport career throwing for 181-yards, going 17-for-39 and no interceptions.

The Gee-Gee’s lone points came on two conceded safeties and a 28-yard field goal kicked by Ward Lewis (Kingston).

McMaster’s other touchdown was on a 27-yard pass from Ferguson to Ben O’Connor (Kingston).

NOTES: McMaster’s defence has not allowed an offensive touchdown in the last 17 quarters of play… The Gryphons were the last team to score a touchdown against McMaster which happened on Sept. 21 at Guelph… The entire McMaster defence was named player of the game.

HAMILTON, Ont. – The No. 5 nationally ranked Guelph Gryphons travel to Hamilton on Saturday to take on the No. 1 McMaster Marauders in the 105th Yates Cup. Here is a look at Yates Cup stats and figures from around Ontario University Athletics.

Guelph vs McMaster

4,058 – The number of regular season passing yards collected by the starting quarterbacks in the 105th Yates Cup. McMaster pivot Kyle Quinlan (South Woodslee) threw for 2,457 yards to finish second in the OUA, while Jazz Lindsey (Markham) finished sixth after throwing for 1,601.

48.6 – The weight in pounds of the Yates Cup. The trophy is 28 1/4 inches tall and features a wood base with seven levels, with name plates recognizing the champions of the 104 previous Yates Cups, with a bowl on top commemorating the donation of cup in 1898 by H.B. Yates.

20 – The number of OUA all-stars competing in the 2012 Yates Cup. The impressive all-star class is headlined by Marauders Quinlan and offensive linemen Matt Sewell (Milton) and Jason Medeiros (Hamilton), plus Gryphons running back Rob Farquharson and linebacker John Rush (both Niagara Falls).

5 – The number of times McMaster has hoisted the Yates Cup. The Marauders are defending champions looking to win consecutive titles for the first time since the Western Mustangs won back-to-back titles in 2007 and 2008. The Marauders also won four consecutive titles from 2000-2003.

19 – The number of consecutive wins posted by the Marauders, dating back to Sept. 10, 2011. The last team to defeat the Marauders was the Western Mustangs who triumphed 48-21 last season in week two. The number ties the Canadian Interuniversity Sport record for consecutive games won.

McMaster (33) vs Queens University (20) Football

MAC WIN SETS UP GAME AGAINST UNBEATEN YORK Source: Parish Offer – September 22, 2012 [More Sports: Hamilton Scores]

Marauders’ quarterback Kyle Quinlan tossed two touchdowns and ran for another to lead No. 1 ranked McMaster to a 33-20 victory over the Queen’s Gaels in Ontario University Athletics football on Saturday (Sept. 22).

The win hands McMaster (4-0) possession of first place in the OUA while Queen’s (3-1) drops to second.

Quinlan, who was named the ‘McDonalds Big Mac’ player of the game for McMaster, was 25 of 36 throwing for 340 yards with two touchdowns. He added another 76-yard’s on the ground and a rushing touchdown.

Robert Babic of Oakville, was Quinlan’s top target pulling in nine receptions for 104 yards and one TD.

Quinlan, ‘McDonalds Big Mac’ player of the game for McMaster Marauders’ Kasean Davis-Reynolds of Mississauga, was the game’s top rusher posting 132 yards while Queen’s Ryan Granberg of Sherwood Park, Alta., finished with 103-yards and a touchdown.

Tyler Crapigna of Nepean, Ont., accounted for 15 of the McMaster points including four straight field goals in the first half. He would convert field goals from 31-yards in the first as well as a 21-yard, 40-yard, and 45-yards in the second.

Queen’s QB Billy McPhee of Burlington, was 29 for 46 accumulating 320 yards and throwing for one touchdown.

“This was a big win, but the locker room is not satisfied with it; we had troubles in the second half and that’s frustrating,” said Quinlan. “The end result was good, Queen’s is a real tough squad and winning gives us an inside track, but we have to get back to work.”

McMaster’s nationally ranked offence needed just three plays to open the scoring as Quinlan found Babic on a 35-yard strike just one minute and 41 seconds into the game to make the score 7-0. Queen’s would respond with a 42-yard field goal from Dillon Wamsley of London, at 6:38 of the first quarter, but McMaster jumped ahead with Crapigna’s four field goals for a 19-3 lead in the second quarter.

With just 21 seconds remaining in the half, Quinlan connected with Ben O’Connor of Kingston, on a 50-yard pass to put the score 26-3 at halftime. The touchdown was O’Connor’s first of his career for the second-year Health Studies major at McMaster.

In the third quarter, Quinlan made the score 33-3 with a six-yard run at 5:25 to conclude McMaster’s scoring.

Granberg punched in a two-yard run late in the third quarter while Justine Chapdelaine of Abbotsford, B.C., made the score 33-18 on a nine-yard pass from McPhee. McMaster would surrender a safety to run out the clock and put the final score at 33-20.

The win puts McMaster in first place two points ahead of Queen’s and Western. McMaster travels to Western next week to face the 3-1 Mustangs in London on Sept. 29. Queen’s will challenge Ottawa at Richardson Stadium in Kingston.

“[First place] may be temporary, a 4-1 jam lock still could happen next week,” said McMaster head coach Stephan Ptaszek. “We don’t feel like we’re in first place by ourselves, we have some tough football to play and earn that right.”

NOTES: Announced attendance at Les Prince Field in Ron Joyce Stadium was 4,132. During the game Quinlan moved into second place on McMaster’s all-time pass completion list passing former Marauder quarterback Phil Scarfone (1981-84). Quinlan now has 400 completions and is 209 away from legendary Ben Chapdelaine on the all-time list. Quinlan also moved into second place on the all-time list for passing yards and has totaled 6,385-yards in his career. He trails Chapdelaine who recorded 9,974 yards when he played for the Marauders from 1997-2001.
