Gryphon hockey women get to face Ryerson

GUELPH – There’ll be another Guelph Gryphons-Ryerson Rams series in OUA hockey this season.

The Gryphons and Rams are to clash in the OUA women’s hockey semifinals after the best-of-three semifinals wrapped up Sunday.

The Gryphs completed their sweep of the best-of-three quarter-final series with the Brock Badgers Friday while the Western Mustangs swept the Waterloo Warriors out Saturday.

Sunday, the Rams edged the Queen’s Gaels 2-1 in OT in Kingston while the Toronto Varsity Blues slipped by the Nipissing Lakers at Varsity Arena.

The Gryphs finished the regular season in first at 16-3-2-3 while Western was second at 14-5-1-4, Toronto third at 13-6-2-3 and Ryerson fifth at 11-7-4-2.

Guelph and Ryerson split their two regular-season games early in the season as the Gryphs won 3-1 at the Mattamy Athletic Centre Sept. 25 and Ryerson won 3-2 at the Gryphon Centre Nov. 21.

The Gryphs and Ryerson last met in the playoffs in 2015 when Guelph swept a quarter-final series with the Rams, posting overtime wins in both games.

Dates for the this year’s semifinal series have not been announced, but it’s expected to start Wednesday night at the Gryphon Centre.
