CIS Football Roundup: Ryan Granberg helps Gaels defeat Mustangs 18-11

Ryan Granberg's fourth-quarter touchdown helped the Queen's Gaels edge the Western Mustangs 18-11 in a battle of ranked Canadian university football teams Saturday.

Granberg kicked off the two-play drive from Western's 47-yard line by running 28 yards, then taking the ball 19 more yards into the end zone on the next play.

Billy McPhee completed 19-of-31 passes for 254 yards with one touchdown and one interception for the sixth-ranked Gaels (3-0), while Giovanni Aprile hauled in McPhee's TD pass.

McPhee's interception was costly. Pawel Kruba picked him off the Gaels quarterback in the third and ran back 30 yards for the No. 5 Mustangs' lone TD.

Elsewhere in the CIS it was: No. 1 McMaster 45, Ottawa 16; No. 2 Calgary 33, No. 7 Manitoba 12; No. 3 Laval 31, No. 8 Acadia 7; No. 4 Montreal 45, Bishop's 15; No. 9 Saskatchewan 39, UBC 34; Wilfrid Laurier 24, York 20; Guelph 47, Waterloo 17; Sherbrooke 23, Saint Mary's 22; Concordia 41, St. FX 20; and Windsor 55, Toronto 4.

No. 2 Laval hosted No. 8 Acadia in the late game, while UBC greeted No. 9 Saskatchewan.

At Kingston, Ont., Mustangs kicker Lirim Hajrullahu capped an 11-play, 67-yard drive with a 36-yard field goal to give Western a 3-0 lead at 7:16 of the first quarter.

But Queen's answered back less than two minutes later when McPhee found Aprile on a 30-yard pass for a 7-3 lead.

Kruba's interception put Western (2-1) back ahead in the third and a Hajrullahu rouge made it 11-7.

But Dillon Wamsley hit a 27-yard field goal for the Gaels at 9:21 in the third to cut Western's lead to one, and Granberg's fourth-quarter run capped the scoring.

Granberg finished with 168 yards rushing on 21 attempts.

Mustangs quarterback Donnie Marshall went 7-for-19 for 109 yards and two interceptions, but was helped out by Garret Sanvido's 124 rushing yards on 26 carries.
