RECAP: Gryphons down Mustangs on last-second field goal [stats]

GUELPH  – A last second field goal from kicker Daniel Ferraro lifted the Guelph Gryphons over the Western Mustangs football team by a 49-46 score on Saturday afternoon at Alumni Stadium.
 
Ferraro’s field goal provided the final piece of a wild finish in a game that featured 95 points, 941 yards of total offence, and four lead changes between the two teams. It also gave the kicker 23 field goals on the year, tying the new OUA record that had just been established by McMaster kicker Tyler Crapigna about an hour earlier.
 
The Mustangs offence was led by the trio of quarterback Will Finch, and running backs Garret Sanvido and Adam Sinclair. Finch racked up 259 yards through the air with three touchdowns and one interception on 24-for-37 passing. He also gained 62 yards on the ground. Sanvido’s 98 yards rushing on 23 attempts led the Mustangs ground game with two touchdowns. Sinclair also recorded two touchdowns on the day, both on passes from Finch, and finished with five catches for 41 yards.
 
Jazz Lindsey topped the Guelph score sheet with 514 yards passing with four touchdowns and completed 34 of 53 passes with only one interception. Lindsey’s two main targets were receivers Alex Charette and A’Dre Fraser who recorded one touchdown each while earning 188 and 210 yards receiving respectively.
 
Ricky Osei-Kusi led all Mustangs players with eight tackles and one sack, while Phil N’Djore and Preston Huggins each had six tackles.
 
The Gryphons opened the scoring on Saturday, finishing their opening 97-yard drive with a two-yard touchdown pass from Jazz Lindsey to Mason Swift to put the home side up just over five minutes into the game.
 
Despite the heavy wind, the kickers then took over the scoreboard for the rest of the frame with Medeiros hitting a 36-yard field goal on the ensuing drive before Daniel Ferraro responded with a 19-yarder into the wind. Medeiros registered the final points of the quarter, nailing a 19-yard kick of his own to cut the Gryphons lead to 10-6 after the first 15 minutes.

Western loses to Guelph 2014
 
Western’s offence took control early in the second quarter, scoring their first major of the day on a 16-yard pass from Finch to Sinclair just over two minutes into the quarter. The purple and white resumed their attack once they got the ball back, scoring on their first play from scrimmage as Finch connected with Shaquille Johnson on a 37-yard catch and run to put Western up 20-10.
 
Neither team was able to find the scoreboard again until the last four minutes of the frame, beginning with a 36-yard Ferraro field goal at 11:28. Medeiros fired back with a 29-yard field goal on the next drive. The Gryphons closed out the first half with 10 consecutive points off of a 35-yard touchdown pass to Alex Charette before Ferraro hit his first of two 41-yard field goals to send the game into the half tied at 23-23.
 
While it was the Mustangs offence that got off to a hot start in the second quarter it was the Gryphons turn in the third quarter. After recovering their opening kickoff, a long pass from Lindsey to Fraser put the Gryphons in front by seven. That lead jumped to 14 points after the home side converted a Mustangs interception into a short-yard touchdown run from Rob Farquharson.  
 
With momentum firmly on the Gryphons side, the Mustangs fought back, scoring on the next drive on a two-yard run from Sanvido. Sanvido wasn’t done with one touchdown however, as the running back earned 28 yards on a 55-yard scoring drive midway through the third quarter, finishing things off with a one-yard run to tie the game at 37-37. The Gryphons would concede a safety shortly thereafter to send the game into the final quarter with a 39-37 lead.
 
Western scored the first major of the quarter with just 3:19 remaining as Finch connected with Sinclair on a five-yard pass to give Western a 46-38 lead late in the contest.
 
Unfortunately for the purple and white faithful in attendance the Gryphons responded with a touchdown of their own when Lindsey found offensive lineman Matthew Toppan in the end zone on a tackle eligible play, bringing Guelph within two points. Guelph tied the game on a two-point convert attempt on a pass from Lindsey to Charette, setting the stage for Ferraro’s last second kick that gave the Gryphons a 49-46 win.
 
Western now gets set for its final game of the regular season as they welcome the Windsor Lancers to TD Stadium next Saturday, October 25. Fans can watch all the action live on OUA.tv, on Rogers Cable 13 in London, and Rogers Sports Plus throughout Ontario. Fans can also listen live on CHRW Radio, and on Newstalk 1290 CJBK with Tom McConnell and legendary Mustangs coach Larry Haylor calling all the action.
