Mustangs Beat Marauders Week #3

John Urban

On Saturday afternoon the McMaster Marauders (1-0) hosted the Western Mustangs (2-0) in a battle of undefeated teams in Week #3 of OUA Football competition at Ron Joyce Stadium.  Western came into the contest with wins over York (66-3) and Guelph (OT 41-34), while McMaster after a Week #1 BYE; beat Carleton 23-9 on the road in Week #2.  Despite having a 47-15-1 all-time record against the Marauders, the Mustangs had just a slight 6-4 advantage on the last ten occasions heading into the weekend.  That includes the tight 19-18 win at TD Stadium last season on October 22nd, that allowed the purple and white to clinch first place in the standings.  In a game that started off as a defensive chess match, ended up boiling down to a superior offense by Western in a 29-14 win, as the Mustangs remain undefeated in 2017.
