Gryphon soccer women drop battle for best in the West

LONDON – The Guelph Gryphons suffered their first loss of the OUA women’s soccer season as they dropped the battle for first place in the West Division 1-0 to the Western Mustangs Sunday at Western’s Mustang Field.

Sabine Gilles-Hardy’s goal for Western early in the second half was the game’s only goal. Alyssa DeSantis drew an assist on the play.

Megan Girardi had six saves to earn the clean sheet for the Mustangs.

Brooke Davidson was in net for the Gryphs.

Guelph outshot Western 11-9 and both teams had three shots miss the mark.

The Gryphs took six of the 10 corner kicks in the game and they were also whistled for five of the seven fouls called in the game.

Western leads the West Division at 5-0-1 and is the only undefeated team in the division. The Gryphs are second at 4-1-1 and Waterloo Warriors are third at 2-1-2.

The Gryphs are to host the Algoma Thunderbirds (1-5-0) Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Gryphon Soccer Complex.

The 4-1 win for Algoma Sept. 8 over the Windsor Lancers was the first for the Thunderbirds since they joined the OUA league in 2014. It put an end to an 83-game winless streak.
