Gryphon lacrosse women again finish fourth
TORONTO – The Guelph Gryphons suffered a pair of losses Sunday in the playoffs of the OUA women’s lacrosse league’s championship tournament at the University of Toronto’s Varsity Centre to finish fourth for the second consecutive year.
The Gryphs fell 11-5 to the Western Mustangs in the bronze-medal game after being defeated by the eventual champion Queen’s Gaels 10-2 in the semifinals.
Queen’s dropped the Trent Excalibur 16-5 in the championship match.
Saturday, the Gryphs clinched second in their pool with an 18-0 blanking of the Brock Badgers.
Western led the bronze-medal match 6-2 at the end of the first quarter, 9-4 at halftime and 10-5 after the third quarter.
Payton Curtis had a pair of goals for the Gryphs while Esmee Hotson, Aimee Evans and Rachel McConvey added single goals.
Scoring details for the semifinal and the final game of pool play were not available.
The result for the Gryphs is exactly the same as last year when they also lost to Queen’s in the semifinals and to Western in the bronze-medal game.
The Gryphs haven’t won a medal since being silver medalists in 2013.
