Guelph got on the board late in the first as Jazz connected a 12-yard pass with Saxon to cap off a four-play, 44-yard drive. The Gryphons led 7-3 after 15 minutes.
 
Saxon notched his second major of the game nine minutes into the second quarter and rookie running back Johnny Augustine (Welland, Ont.) added a one-yard rushing touchdown two minutes later as Guelph built a 21-3 lead heading into halftime.
