Mustangs Clobber Gee Gees at Homecoming

Excitement was in the air in the Forest City on Saturday afternoon as hundreds of Western Alumni filled the stands of TD Stadium to watch their Mustangs take on the visiting Ottawa Gee Gees. Both teams had playoff spots locked up but positioning was still to be determined for the Gee Gees.

The first quarter was a tight affair with Western jumping out to an early lead thanks to 3rd year receiver Harry McMaster who snagged a 15 yard touchdown pass from quarterback Chris Merchant. The Gee Gees responded a couple possessions later when cornerback Jamie Harry intercepted Chris Merchant's pass and took it 60 yards the other way for a pick-six to tie the game up early. After a Marc Liegghio rouge gave the Mustangs a one point lead, the first quarter came to a close with the stands packed to the brim with alumni sporting the purple and white.
