60 Word Blitz - A pre-game look at Week 9's games

Laurier Golden Hawks v. Western Mustangs
TD Stadium
October 20 @ 1:00pm

Following their most dominant defensive performance of the season, Western will now look to close out their perfect season. Standing in their way? Laurier, of course! In a rematch of the past two Yates Cup finals, the Hawks will need to soar high on both sides of the ball to derail the Mustangs and their explosive running attack.

McMaster Marauders v. Windsor Lancers
Alumni Field
October 20 @ 1:00pm

Both McMaster and Windsor are coming off losses and both will want to close out their seasons on a high. The Marauders are hoping for another stellar performance from Andreas Dueck under centre to lead them into the postseason, while the Lancers will see if there’s any magic remaining in Sam Girard’s touchdown-tossing arm this season to double their wins.

York Lions v. Toronto Varsity Blues (Red & Blue Bowl)
Varsity Stadium
October 20 @ 1:00pm

The Lions and Blues are facing off in the highly-anticipated Red & Blue Bowl. While the season hasn’t turned out like either team would have liked, pride is on the line this Saturday. Will the Hunchak brothers hook up for a few more TDs or will the Blues’ sophomore wide receivers continue hauling in the ball to capture the W?

Waterloo Warriors v. Guelph Gryphons
Alumni Stadium
October 20 @ 1:00pm

With both teams sitting with a 4-3 record, this Saturday’s match-up between Waterloo and Guelph is critical. Adding to the intrigue, both teams are coming off impressive victories last weekend, with their strengths shining bright. So will the Ford-Ternowski duo reign supreme or will Korol and the Gryphon D shutdown the potent attack to seal their playoff fate?

Ottawa Gee-Gees v. Queen’s Gaels
Richardson Memorial Stadium
October 20 @ 1:00pm

Last weekend didn’t go as planned for the Gee-Gees, but it’s a new ball game this Saturday against the Gaels. Queen’s turns to fearless leader Nate Hobbs (2nd in passing) to try and pull out the victory, while Dawson Odei, who has a matching rank in the ground game, aims to put an exclamation point on his campaign for Ottawa.
