Western versus McMaster
Last year's disappointing Homecoming loss to the McMaster Marauders
is still fresh in the minds of the Western football team.
taking the lead, the Mustangs were unable to hold on as a
last minute touchdown gave McMaster a 38-37 victory. This Saturday
in Hamilton the Mustangs will have a chance to redeem themselves
and spoil McMasters own Homecoming. The Mustangs (3-2) face
the third ranked, unbeaten Marauders (5-0) at Les Prince Field.
Western is full of confidence having won two straight games
in overtime against tough opponents. Last weekend the Mustangs
spoiled Laurier's Homecoming with a 31-28 come-from-behind
victory. After allowing Eric Medler to run for 330 yards
against them in last week's game against Laurier, it will
for the Mustang defense to contain the duo of Jesse Lumsden
and Kyle Pyear, two of the top running backs in the country.
Western is battling for home-field advantage come playoff
time and a win this Saturday would help their cause, as
bolster their confidence heading in to the playoffs. The
game will be broadcast live on The Score and can also be
on CHRW 94.9 FM starting at 2 p.m.
