Athletic Directors & City Mayors Place Friendly Bet as Gryphons & Marauders Face Off in 5 Games This Weekend!
Much more than school pride is at stake this weekend when the Guelph Gryphons face the McMaster Marauders in a total of five games over a three-day span.
The respective Athletic Directors of the two schools and Mayors of the cities have agreed to a friendly wager on the outcome of the five OUA games.
Taking place in Hamilton will be the OUA Women’s Rugby Championship Final, OUA Quarter Final Football and the start of the OUA Volleyball Season. Back in Guelph the Gryphon Men’s Soccer Team will be hosting a Quarter Final game.
OUA Women’s Rugby Championships: Guelph @ McMaster (Fri, Oct. 28 – 7PM)
OUA Quarter Final Football: Guelph @ McMaster (Sat, Oct. 29 – 4PM)
OUA Regular Season Volleyball Opener: Guelph @ McMaster (Fri, Oct. 28 – 6, 8PM)
OUA Men’s Soccer Quarter Finals: McMaster @ Guelph (Sun, Oct. 29 – 3PM)
University of Guelph Director of Athletics, Scott McRoberts and City of Guelph Mayor, Cam Guthrie have issued a challenge to McMaster Athletic Director Glen Grunwald and Hamilton Mayor Fred Eisenberger. The friendly wager is over which school produces more wins.
If the Marauders earn more wins than the Gryphons in the five games, Grunwald and Eisenberger will enjoy a craft beer from Wellington Brewery. Should the Gryphons win the bet, McRoberts and Guthrie will be enjoying a glass of craft beer from ‘Shawn & Ed Brewing Company’ in Dundas.
Tickets for the games at McMaster can be purchased at marauders.ca or at the box office.
