Nearly 9000 fans filled Alumni Stadium last Saturday to cheer on the men's football team as the Gryphons faced off against the Western Mustangs at Homecoming. 

The Guelph fans were loud, proud and colourful, but it was the Western Mustangs who went home with the glory after a solid performance from both teams. 

Western took the first touchdown late in the first.  Receiver Jedd Gardner scored Guelph's only touchdown in the second.  Guelph was then awarded a single point after the Mustangs were unable to get the ball out of their end zone.  

The defensive line on both teams held strong throughout the third, but Western finally broke through for a run in touchdown with less than five minutes left on the clock.  The final score was 15-8.

The loss means the Gryphons now sit 3-1, and the Mustangs 4-1. 

The Gryphons head to Waterloo next Saturday to take on the Laurier Golden Hawks.
