The Gaiters had more net offence (410 yards to 375), including a 14-for-27, 211-yard performance from quarterback Mark Stipe. The only other time the NCAA overtime format was used in the Ontario-Quebec conference, Oct. 25, 1997, Bishop’s defeated Laval 17-14, also at Coulter Field.
Golden Hawks 56 Marauders 29
Saturday, Oct. 24, 1998 At Waterloo, Ont., quarterback Kevin Taylor completed 15 of 23 passes for 200 yards and running back Justin Praamsma had 15 carries for 125 yards for No. 10 Wilfrid Laurier (5-2). Quarterback Ben Chapdelaine put up 323 yards passing, completing 26 of 39 passes, for No. 7 McMaster (4-3). But he suffered three interceptions, one by Donnie Ruiz — a Golden Hawk record seventh of the season. Chris Dorrington also starred for the Marauders — 18 carries, 115 yards, touchdown and seven receptions, 91 yards. In terms of net offence, it was a split decision — Wilfrid Laurier, 487 to 454 — but McMaster had five turnovers.
Warriors 53 Lancers 7
Saturday, Oct. 24, 1998 At Windsor, No. 3 Waterloo (6-1) burst from the gate, scoring on six of its first seven possessions en route to a 42-1 lead at the half against Windsor (1-5-1). Tailback Mike Bradley had 18 carries for 242 yards and scored four touchdowns, one on a 98-yard run in the first quarter, and Chris Amey caught six passes for 172 yards and scored two touchdowns for the Warriors. Waterloo ran up 647 yards in offence. Windsor chalked up 251.
Mustangs 46 Gryphons 8
Saturday, Oct. 24, 1998 At Guelph, No. 1 Western Ontario (7-0) clinched first place in the Ontario conference as quarterback Mike O’Brien passed for 268 yards, completing 11 of 17 passes. Fabian Rayne had only 11 carries for 68 yards, but scored three touchdowns for the Mustangs. Gerrit Stam starred for Guelph (2-4-1), with 24 carries for 206 yards. He now has a school-record 953 yards.
Yeomen 15 Varsity Blues 9
Saturday, Oct. 24, 1998 At Toronto, Jeff Johnson had 19 carries for 109 yards for York (2-5) before an announced crowd of 3,800 on closing day at Varsity. Quarterback Fabio Brusco, who had seven carries for 26 yards and a touchdown, passed for 138 more, completing 11 of 19 passes against Toronto (0-7).
The game was the last to be played at Varsity Stadium, the site of the intercollegiate game on the Toronto campus since 1898. It has played host to 30 Grey Cup games, as well as 21 Vanier Cup showdowns. The stadium's final TD was scored by Toronto's James Baskin on a one-yard run at 7:50 of the fourth quarter. The last point was a single on an unsuccessful 38-yard field-goal by York's Jesse Phillips.
Huskies 14 Dinosaurs 1
Saturday, Oct. 24, 1998 1 At Saskatoon, Matt Kellett kicked a 12-yard field goal with only two seconds remaining to move No. 2 Saskatchewan (5-1) into a tie for first in Canada West with No. 6 British Columbia, but the Huskies have played one less game than the Thunderbirds (5-2). Kellett had three field goals in the win over No. 4 Calgary (4-3). Saskatchewan quarterback Ryan Reid completed 17 of 25 passes for 271 yards, much of that to Kelly McNairn (seven receptions for 114 yards). Calgary quarterback Darryl Leason, who had 10 carries for a club-high 84 yards and a touchdown, completed 12 of 28 passes for 190 yards.
Rouge et Or 13 Golden Gaels 10
Sunday, Oct. 25, 1998 STE.-FOY, Que. — Laval quarterback Dominik Goulet scored a touchdown on a one-yard run with only 53 seconds left in the game Sunday afternoon as the Rouge et Or came back to defeat Queen’s Golden Gaels 13-10 in a CIAU football game. A crowd of 4,867 watched Laval (4-4) win the Ontario-Quebec conference game with 10 unanswered points in the fourth quarter against Queen’s (3-4). Ironically, Goulet finished the game with a negative rushing total (minus one) on two carries. He aso completed nine of 17 passes for 203 yards for the Rouge et Or, who got two field goals from Bernard Gravel, the longest of which was from 32 yards. Queen’s quarterback Beau Howes, who had seven carries for 20 yards and a touchdown, clicked on 20 of 32 passes for 264 yards. Also starring for the Golden Gaels were James Maclean (six catches, 105 yards) and Andrew Tewsley (two interceptions). Laval scored 10 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to earn its first playoff berth since joining the Ontario-Quebec conference in 1996.
Rouge et Or linebacker Bernard Gravel was later named CIAU/CFL Radically Canadian defensive Players of the Week. Gravel, a fifth-year player from St-Georges, Que., had a memorable final home game Sunday afternoon in a 13-10 win over Queen’s Golden Gaels. The 6'1" 210 lb. linebacker chalked up six tackles and added five assists. He also had a sack and an interception which he returned 32 yards.
Axemen 14 Huskies 7
Saturday, Oct. 31, 1998 At Wolfville, N.S., Acadia (5-2) scored nine unanswered points in the fourth quarter to bounce No. 9 Saint Mary's (4-3) in a showdown between two teams which, along with Mount Allison, came into the day in a three-way tie for first place in the Atlantic. Ben Halpin took a 40-yard scoring pass from quarterback Trevor Martin to put the Axemen ahead 11-7 at 4:35 of the fourth quarter and Glen Sullivan added a field goal, his second of the game, at 10:03. Kyle Zurba, who also caught two passes, had 23 carries for 121 yards for the Axemen. Martin completed 14 of 27 passes for 153 yards. Saint Mary's offence had no success — it produced only 96 yards, 80 rushing.
Mounties 27 X-Men 0
Saturday, Oct. 31, 1998 At Antigonish, N.S., in a game played in a quagmire, No. 6 Mount Allison (5-2) made the most of its limited opportunities against St. Francis Xavier (0-7). Eric Lapointe had 31 carries for 150 yards and a touchdown for the Mounties and Vince Baraniecz also scored on a 30-yard interception return in the fourth quarter. It was one of four interceptions by Mount Allison, for whom Dave Bradford added 15 points, including four field goals. The conditions ripped up the game plans — the teams combined for only 299 yards, 215 by the Mounties.
Stingers 43 Gee-Gees 20
Saturday, Oct. 31, 1998 At Ottawa, quarterback Sean Hoas threw two touchdowns, both to Sylvain Girard, for No. 7 Concordia (6-2), which finishes first in the Ontario-Quebec conference. Both were long passes, 71 and 50 yards, helping Hoas put up 185 yards in passing. Also starring for the Stingers were Evan Davis (10 carries, 137 yards) and Dave Miller-Johnston (five field goals). The Gee-Gees (6-2) didn't use first-string quarterback Phil Cote, flipping the game plan to Trevor Monaghan. The sophomore shared the spotlight with receiver Rob Harrod, who caught 10 passes, three for touchdowns, for 200 yards. Chris Evraire caught 11 others passes for 73 yards for Ottawa. Monaghan completed 23 of 47 passes for 295 yards — but the Stingers read him for four interceptions.
Gaiters 39 Golden Gaels 20
Saturday, Oct. 31, 1998 At Kingston, Ont., running back Ben Ouimet had 10 carries for 182 yards and O.J. Burnett added another 140 on 22 carries as Bishop's (4-4) defeated Queen's (3-5) in the showdown for the final playoff berth in the OQIFC. Ouimet and Burnett scored two touchdowns apiece — for each, it was one rushing and another receiving. The Gaiters rolled up 413 yards rushing, to offset a big passing game by Queen's quarterback Beau Howes (nine -for-21, 252 yards, two touchdowns). Three of those passes for 109 yards and a touchdown were to Jason Wimmer. Two others, though, ended up as interceptions by Jean Desmarais. Ouimet 6'0", 192 lbs. carried the ball 10 times for 182 yards and 1 TD. He also caught a 26-yard TD pass to give him 208 all-purpose yards and 2 TDs. His efforts were instrumental in helping Bishop's run up 413 yards of rushing and a net offense of 513 yards. He was later named CIAU Offensive player of the week.
Redmen 23 Ravens 13
Saturday, Oct. 31, 1998 At Montreal, rookie quarterback Josh Sommerfeldt had another effective matinee for McGill (4-4). He passed for 188 yards and ran another 33, including 11 yards for touchdown in the second quarter. At times, Carleton (1-7) moved the yardsticks, rolling for more net offence than the Redmen (250 to 229), but turned the ball over seven times. That same success-frustration story covered quarterback James Baker. He completed 21 of 39 passes for 242 yards with two touchdowns, but had four passes intercepted, two by Sal Brohi. Those were Nos. 14 and 15 of Brohi's career, a McGill high. Stephen Hadley was Baker's No. 1 receiver — seven for 131 yards, including a touchdown. McGill's Brohi 5th Year 5'9", 168 lbs. a graduating senior playing in his last game, had 11 tackles, 2 interceptions and a knockdown in addition to the two interceptions. He was part of a defensive unit that caused seven turnovers and held the opposition to 250 yards of offense. Brohi was later named Defensive player of the week.
Gryphons 47 Marauders 24
Saturday, Oct. 31, 1998 At Hamilton, Gerrit Stam had 21 carries for 178 yards and scored two touchdowns for Guelph (3-4-1), which bounced No. 10 McMaster (4-4). Ben Chapdelaine, the country's leading passer, padded his numbers (24-for-46, 299 yards, two touchdowns).
Yeomen 13 Golden Hawks 6
Saturday, Oct. 31, 1998 At North York, Jeff Johnson, who scored the only touchdown, had a huge game for the Yeomen (3-5). He had 27 carries for 188 rushing yards against No. 8 Wilfrid Laurier (5-3) and also caught four Fabio Brusco passes for another 94 yards. The touchdown came on a six-yard run with just one minute left in the game. Brusco went nine-for-21 for 159 yards. Wilfrid Laurier had only 216 net yards on offence and that total didn't put anyone over 100 yards.
Warriors 36 Varsity Blues 18
Saturday, Oct. 31, 1998 At Waterloo, Ont., quarterback Ryan Wilkinson threw four touchdown passes for the No. 3 Warriors (7-1). Wilkinson, who also had five carries for 39 yards, completed 10 of 20 passes for 260 yards. Mike Bradley had 18 carries for 101 yards against Toronto (0-8), which suffered five turnovers, three of those on downs, and didn't have a player with 100 or more yards. The only touchdown by the Varsity Blues came on a pass by running back James Baskin. A little razzle-dazzle in the final minute of the first half, eight yards to — wait for it — quarterback Noel Carrabs.
Mustangs 48 Lancers 10
Saturday, Oct. 31, 1998 London, Ont Western Ontario's Scott Crawley and Fabian Rayne drove in the last spike Saturday afternoon as the Mustangs became the only undefeated regular season in team 1998 in CIAU football. Rayne, who scored four touchdowns, and Crawley combined for 306 rushing as Western Ontario derailed Windsor Lancers 48-10 at J.W. Little Stadium in London, Ont. Crawley romped for 172 yards on 22 carries while Rayne, who also caught one pass for 12 yards, went 19-for-134 for Western Ontario (8-0) against Windsor (1-6-1). The touchdowns by Rayne came from 10, four, 15 and four yards. Quarterback Mike O'Brien, who didn't have to air it out (seven-for-16, 187 yards), had a huge matinee punting, another key component as October is ripped off the wall calendar. He averaged 45.2 yards on six punts. Windsor had more yards passing (240 yards), but only one of its seven receptions reached the end zone — a 92-yard bomb from slotback Reid Cockburn to another slotback, David Fuerth, in the third quarter.
Huskies 21 Bisons 16
Saturday, Oct. 31, 1998 At Winnipeg, Manitoba (0-7) came up tough against No. 2 Saskatchewan (6-1). The Bisons had both players with game highs — Ron Arnold, 16-for-147 rushing, including a 100-yard touchdown, and Cory Larsen, eight receptions for 130 yards. But, with the heat on, it was the Huskies who made the plays. Linebacker Warren Muzika had two sacks, six tackles and blocked a field goal in the fourth quarter. And Matt Kellett didn't make any mistakes in placement kicking (two-for-two in field goals, one from 42 yards). Both quarterbacks passed for more than 200 yards — Sheldon Ball, Saskatchewan, 17-for-28, 230 yards and Greg Korstrom, Manitoba, 17-for-33, 220.
Golden Bears 23 Dinosaurs 2
Saturday, Oct. 31, 1998 At Calgary, Alberta (3-4) ended the chances of the No. 5 Dinosaurs (4-4) advancing to the postseason. Defensive back Dustin Edwards starred as Alberta forced six turnovers. Edwards had two of the Golden Bears' four interceptions, logged a sack and had six tackles. Alberta outscored Calgary 17-8 in the fourth quarter, including two touchdowns within 56 seconds — a four-yard run by Mike Spencer, then a 14-yard run by Nathan Connor. Ken Eslinger (19-for-122) and Michael Leason (seven-for-131), both of Calgary, put up game highs. Dinosaurs' quarterback Darryl Leason completed only 16 of 36 for 269 yards.
Thunderbirds 13 Huskies 11
Friday, Nov. 6, 1998 VANCOUVER — British Columbia running back Abkal Singh led the Thunderbirds to a 13-11 win over Saskatchewan Huskies on Friday night in a CIAU football game, but the two-point triumph wasn’t enough to earn the defending Vanier Cup champions first place in Canada West. The No. 4 Thunderbirds (6-2) needed to defeat No. 2 Saskatchewan (6-2) by four points to unfurl the conference’s pennant. The Huskies, who defeated the Thunderbirds 38-34 Oct. 3 at Saskatoon, now will play host to British Columbia next Saturday in the CW final. Singh had 16 carries for 81 yards, including a 10-yard touchdown run, and caught seven passes for another 80 for the Thunderbirds. British Columbia quarterback Shawn Olson completed 22 of 36 passes for 224 yards, but had two interceptions — both were by defensive back Colin Dutton, including one on the game’s last play. Duncan O’Mahony clicked on only one of five field-goal attempts for the Thunderbirds. Huskies’ quarterback Ryan Reid completed 11 of 22 passes for 224 yards. He also had passes intercepted.
Mounties 30 Axemen 28
Saturday, Nov. 7, 1998 At Sackville, N.B., running back Eric Lapointe had 247 yards on 30 carries and scored two touchdowns as No. 6 Mount Allison (6-2) defeated No. 7 Acadia (5-3) to unfurl the Atlantic pennant. David Bradford kicked three field goals for Mount Allison, the last from 11 yards with only 12 seconds left to win the game. Lapointe now has 4,666 career rushing yards — only 29 behind CIAU leader Dominic Zagari (Manitoba, 1991-95) — and has one more regular season of eligibility. Against the Axemen, Lapointe also caught four passes for 51 yards. Acadia quarterback Trevor Martin completed 21 of 35 passes for 352 yards and two touchdowns. Seven of those receptions, for 112 yards and a touchdown, were by Ben Halpin. Quarterback Dan Capone clicked on 20 of 31 passes for 290 yards for the Mounties. Craig Fougere caught five of those for 102 yards.
Eric Lapointe was later named Canadian offensive Player of the Week. The 1996 Hec Crighton Trophy winner, six-foot-one and 210 pound native of Brossard, Que., sent his season rushing total to 1,515 yards — No. 1 in the country.
X-Men 35 Huskies 22
Saturday, Nov. 7, 1998 At Halifax, St. Francis Xavier (1-7) closed out its season with a victory as quarterback Derek Martin threw three touchdown passes and its defence registered four interceptions, two by Mark Royale. Jason Elliott returned another of those interceptions 99 yards for a third-quarter touchdown. Martin completed 21 of 28 passes for 210 yards against Saint Mary's (4-4). Jermayne Baldwin caught two touchdown passes from Martin and Ron Lirette, who had eight receptions for 100 yards, another. Quarterback J.W. Thompson had 239 yards passing for the Huskies, completing 12 of 24 passes. Luis Perez had a game-high 113 yards rushing, with a touchdown, for Saint Mary's.
Stingers 27 Gaiters 17
Saturday, Nov. 7, 1998 Dunsmore Cup semifinals At Montreal, Bishop’s led by seven, 17-10, after three quarters before quarterback Sean Hoas threw a 36-yard scoring pass to Sylvain Girard, then added a touchdown on a four-yard run for No. 5 Concordia. The net offence story was a virtual tie — the Stingers, 418 to 414. Hoas completed only seven of 18 passes for 123 yards, but two went for touchdowns. Bishop’s Mark Stipe, who had nine carries for 89 yards, completed 13 of 27 passes for 181 yards and a touchdown. But he also had three interceptions. Sean Field had eight catches for a game-high 122 yards for the Gaiters.
Concordia LB Dwayne Bromfield was later named Canadian defensive Player of the Week. Bromfield made five solo tackles, four assisted tackles, two tackles for losses and added a sack. That earned the Toronto native his fourth conference defensive Player of the Week award of the season and set the stage for his winning a second Radically Canadian honor. Bromfield, six-foot-one and 225 and in his fourth season with the Stingers, is the OQIFC nominee for the Presidents’ Trophy as the top defensive player, other than a down lineman, in the CIAU.
Rouge et Or 48 Gee-Gees 42
Saturday, Nov. 7, 1998 At Ste.-Foy, Que., a crowd of 5,457 saw No. 9 Laval build a 35-7 lead by the end of the first quarter, then hang on for the victory. The game produced 35 penalties for 357 yards — most of that to Ottawa (19-190). Two Gee-Gees were ejected, receiver Rob Harrod and linebacker Steve Alexandre. Quarterback Phil Cote tried to bring Ottawa back from its stumbling start, completing 20 of 36 passes for 358 yards and three touchdowns. But Cote, who had 86 yards rushing and a touchdown on 15 carries, was frustrated by two interceptions, both by Philippe Lamarre. Harrod had nine receptions for 152 yards and Ibraham Tounkara six for 121 for Ottawa. It almost was a student body matinee for Laval — two quarterbacks directed an offence that featured seven rushers and six receivers.
Mustangs 34 Marauders 32
Saturday, Nov. 7, 1998 Yates Cup semifinals At London ON, Western Ontario running back Fabian Rayne scored four touchdowns Saturday afternoon, two in the fourth quarter, as the No. 1 Mustangs, rebounded for a 34-32 win over the Marauders in an Ontario playoff game. Rayne rushed for 136 yards on 13 carries against No. 10 McMaster and Scott Crawley added another 189 on 24 carries, including a touchdown on a 14-yard run. Other than on the scoreboard, though, McMaster chalked up the bigger, game-high numbers. Running back Chris Dorrington had 27 carries for 205 yards and two touchdowns; quarterback Ben Chapdelaine completed 21 of 29 passes for 261 yards and two touchdowns and Ryan Janzen had four receptions for 100 yards. The Marauders had 532 yards in net offence, 83 more than Western Ontario.
Warriors 32 Golden Hawks 10
Saturday, Nov. 7, 1998 At Waterloo, Ont., Mike Bradley had 24 carries for 158 yards and scored a touchdown as the Warriors warmed up for their showdown with Western Ontario. The Waterloo played a starring role in the triumph, creating six turnovers — that included two interceptions, two by Jason Tibbits. Wilfrid Laurier’s most effective player was running back Justin Praamsma with 21 carries, one for a touchdown, and 178 yards.
Golden Bears 20 Bisons 17
Saturday, Nov. 7, 1998 At Winnipeg, rookie Nathan Connor had a game-high 106 yards rushing for Alberta (4-4) and Mitch Sutherland cracked through for two sacks. The victory was the Golden Bears third in a row and gave them third place, on point differential, in head-to-head games against Calgary (38-37). Manitoba (0-8) finished as one of two CIAU teams without a win this season, but at least three Bisons went out with a bang. Quarterback Greg Korstrom threw for a conference season-high 372 yards (23-for-33) and receiver Cory Larsen had a CIAU season-high 12 receptions (207 yards).
Stingers 17 Rouge et Or 12 OT3
Saturday, Nov. 14, 1998 AND Sun Nov 15
Tackle Jeff Anderson stripped the ball from Laval QB Dominik Goulet, and Concordia LB Jason Casey recovered the fumble and ran it in 22 yards for for a touchdown in Sunday's first overtime period to send the Stingers to a 17-12 win. Goulet wrapped up the two-day final with 460 yards passing, completing 31 of 61 passes. Quarterback Sean Hoas, who completed only nine passes and had six interceptions, led Concordia in rushing with 106 yards on 18 carries. Mathieu Brassard, who had 45 yards rushing, caught six passes for 163 yards for the Rouge et Or. Laval's Stephane Lefebvre had a game-high 147 yards rushing.
Casey, six-foot-one and 225 pounds and a fourth-year Geography student from North Bay, Ont. was later named CIAU Defensive player of the week. He had seven solo tackles in the extended game, three more of the assisted variety and an interception, which ended a threatening drive by the Rouge et Or late in regulation time.
Laval quarterback Dominik Goulet emerged from the Twilight Zone on Saturday afternoon in CIAU football. The Dunsmore Cup, though, was left in the dark. Goulet threw for 429 yards as the Rouge et Or tied Concordia Stingers 10-10 in overtime, an Ontario-Quebec conference final that was suspended by darkness. The game at Concordia Stadium, a facility without artificial lights, was to be completed the next day at 2:00
At Montreal, Goulet, who began the season as Laval’s No. 3 quarterback, completed 29 of 53 passes in a game that wasn’t decided, even with two, five-minute overtimes. But Goulet, who led the nation in passing two seasons ago when he played at Concordia, wasn’t able to put the football into the end zone in a game before a crowd of 5,000. Concordia’s defence bent, but did not break, allowing only three field goals and a single by Bernard Gravel. The game’s only touchdown came on the second play from scrimmage — running back Scott Ashworth bounced in from the one after a Laval fumble deep in its zone on its first play. Mathieu Brassard also starred for the Rouge et Or, in only the school’s third season in football. He caught six passes for 163 yards and had 11 carries for another 45. Concordia quarterback Sean Hoas had a miserable matinee passing (nine-for-25 for 128, six interceptions). But he more than made up for that on option runs (14 carries for a game-high 123 yards). Wayne Dunn, a rookie end, had two sacks and eight other tackles for Concordia. But, when the second overtime ended at 4:46 pm nightfall had set in and referee Ron Morin met with the coaches — Jacques Chapdelaine of the Rouge et Or and Concordia’s Pat Sheahan — to discuss the options. “It was very difficult,” Morin said. “Ultimately, it was that safety factor.” In scenes reminiscent of the 1961 Fog Bowl — the two-day Grey Cup Game between Winnipeg and Hamilton at CNE Stadium in Toronto — a decision, also involving OQIFC commissioner Harry Zarins, latter was made to break the tie today. First there will be two 10-minute halves. Then if the tie still exisits, the conference’s overtime rule kicks in. Team A scrimmages at Team B’s 35-yard line and attempts to score, in any manner. Team B then gets the football at Team A’s 35 and does its thing. They alternate possessions — until the game is decided.
Axemen 35 Mounties 28
Saturday, Nov. 14, 1998 JEWETT TROPHY, Acadia 35 Mount Allison 28 Acadia's defence came up huge in the final 26 seconds as the Axemen hung on to defeat Mount Allison Mounties 35-28 in the Jewett Trophy game at Sackville, N.B. The quarterbacks put up some dizzying numbers in the Atlantic conference final before a crowd of 3,264. Mount Allison’s Dan Capone completed 30 of 49 passes, four of which for touchdowns, and 448 yards — but the offence ground to a stop in the final seconds, in the shadows of the goalposts, failing to put it into the end zone on three plays from the 10. Acadia QB Trevor Martin wasn’t terribly far off those numbers, 22-for-39 for 320 yards and four touchdowns. The Mounties, who never held the lead, completed the game’s scoring at 5:31 of the fourth quarter, a 10-yard touchdown pass to Cedric Lafreniere, but Acadia dug in after that. Craig Fougere caught seven passes for 128 yards and Lafreniere seven for 117 for Mount Allison. The most effective receiver for Martin, who also had three carries for 43 yards, was Manny Johnson (five receptions for 138 yards and three touchdowns). The fact the game would be close almost was guaranteed. During the regular season, Acadia defeated the Mounties by three points and lost by one and two points.
Acadia's Manny Johnson was later named CIAU Offensive player of the week. A six-foot-one, 210-pound wide receiver from Chicago, he was particularly sure-handed with nine receptions, three TD's, for 138 yards. He also returned punts and kickoffs for another 97 yards, sending his all-purpose game total to 235 yards. Johnson also played some defence — and even made a tackle against the Mounties.
Mustangs 47 Warriors 41
Saturday, Nov. 14, 1998 YATES CUP, Western Ontario 47 Waterloo 41 Western Ontario Mustangs, the No. 1 team in the country, broke to a 29-0 in the first 20 minutes, but only escaped with a six-point win, 47-41, over Waterloo Warriors in the 100th edition of the Yates Cup at London, Ont. At London, Ont., a crowd of 5,532 at J.W. Little Stadium saw two games for the price of one. Mostly, it was ol’ fashioned football, featuring teams with punishing ground games. It also was a game featuring one team with character to burn. The No. 2 Warriors had to get up off the canvas after falling into that 29-to-zilch hole. Scott Crawley had 20 carries for 240 yards and scored a touchdown for the Mustangs. Fabian Rayne, who had 17 carries for 150 yards, added three touchdowns. The Warriors’ big bangers were Mike Bradley (112 yards, two touchdowns) and Eddie Kim (101 yards, one touchdown). Waterloo’s Chris Amey had a game high eight receptions for 169 yards as quarterback Ryan Wilkinson went 15-for-24 for 240 yards. In addition burning out the scoreboard’s lights with 88 points, the teams combined for 1,083 yards (572 by Western Ontario).
Huskies 31 Thunderbirds 28
Saturday, Nov. 14, 1998 HARDY TROPHY Saskatchewan Huskies outscored British Columbia 10-7 in the fourth quarter to upend the reigning Vanier Cup champion Thunderbirds 31-28 in the Hardy Trophy showdown at Saskatoon. At Saskatoon, Matt Kellett went three-for-three in field-goal attempts for the Huskies. The last, a 27-yard kick at 11:56 of the fourth quarter, earned Saskatchewan its second Canada West title in three seasons before a crowd of 3,500. British Columbia, though, didn’t quit and Frank Luisser took a 21-yard scoring pass from quarterback Shawn Olson in the final minute to pull the Thunderbirds to within three, 31-28. It was Luisser’s third touchdown of the afternoon. He caught six passes for 120 yards and scored two touchdowns in that department. He also had 33 yards rushing, including a 25-yard touchdown. Jaret Rennie had six receptions for 105 yards for the Huskies as quarterback Ryan Reid clicked on 22 of 29 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns. Akbal Singh had 11 carries for 120 yards for the Thunderbirds and Olson went 23-for-36 for 311 yards.
Huakies 33 Mustangs 17
Saturday, Nov. 14, 1998 CHURCHILL BOWL: Saskatchewan's Doug Rozon rushed for 214 yards as the Huskies earned their fifth trip to the Vanier Cup in the last 10 seasons with a 33-17 victory over Western. The Saskatoon crowd of more than 6,000 saw 5'-11" 221 lb. Rozon blast through some huge holes against the No. 1-ranked Mustangs, the last undefeated CIAU team. “Our offensive line really was into it,” said the fourth-year Kinesiology student from Victoria, B.C. He had averaged just under 100 yards in seven games this season. Rozon averaged 9.3 yards per carry against Western, well over his 6.2 season average.
The Huskies rocked the Mustangs’ defence with 558 yards, 306 on the ground. At times the UWO defence came up with big plays, giving the offence an opportunity to get its act together. Western Ontario LB Justin Anania (2nd year Social Sciences, Montreal) had 10 tackles, and on one play stripped the ball from Rozon and then made the recovery. Fabian Rayne with 151 yards rushing was the only Mustang to consistently crack a tough Saskatchewan defence, featuring several Vanier veterans like Warren Muzika, James Repesse, Trevor Ludtke and Mike Stewart. Saskatchewan QB Ryan Reid completed 15 of 21 passes for 252 yards using seven different receivers. Western's Mike O’Brien clicked on 12 of 22 for 195, but almost half of those totals were chalked up by Dan Disley (five receptions, 86 yards). Kelly McNairn was the game’s leading kick-returner (five for 136). Rozon got into that act, too — a kickoff return of 31 yards. He also had three receptions for 37 yards.
Stingers 25 Axemen 24
Saturday, Nov. 14, 1998 ATLANTIC BOWL: At Huskies Stadium in Halifax, Concordia's Dave Miller-Johnston kicked four field goals — the last from 45 yards at 13:39 of the fourth quarter — as the Stingers came back to defeat Acadia Axemen 25-24 in the Atlantic Bowl. It was Concordia's first-ever bowl win, and now gives them their first trip to the Vanier Cup.
A rain-drenched Halifax crowd of 5,723 saw the Stingers register a miracle finish with two big plays in the fourth quarter before Miller-Johnston's winning kick. The first featured Loan Duong of Concordia. Acadia’s Manny Johnson fumbled a towering punt by Miller-Johnston deep in Axemen territory, and Duong fielded it on the second bounce and sprinted into the end zone. With the convert, the Stingers trailed by only a point. Earlier Duong had been penalized for unnecessary roughing on Johnson when both were clearly out of bounds. That helped set up a touchdown that put Acadia up by 11, 17-6. The other big play came midway through the fourth when Evan Davis Jr. made a good play just to catch an option pitch from backup quarterback Jon Kronemeyer, then zipped 75 yards down the sideline and into the Axemen end zone. Kronemeyer had come on for No. 1 QB Sean Hoas, who was injured and left the game in the second quarter after being tackled by Acadia's Joshua Thomas.
Miller-Johnson’s game-winning field goal was the only time Concordia led. Acadia had 368 total yards vs Concordia's 349. Axemen QB Trevor Martin completed 30 of 46 passes for 329 yards. His favorite receivers were Manny Johnson (10 for 118) and Stuart Venables (eight for 127). Concordia's passing was 17-26 for 181 yards; Jon Kronemeyer clicked on 11 of 16 passes for 108, and Hoas had 6 for 9 and 73 yards before leaving.
Huskies 24 Stingers 17
Saturday Nov. 28, 1998 SkyDome, Toronto: Saskatchewan turned a botched Stingers' option play into the winning touchdown late in the fourth quarter of Vanier Cup XXXIV. Linebacker Trevor Ludtke recovered an ensuing fumble in the end zone as the Huskies defeated Concordia 24-17 before 15,157. On the play, Huskies linebacker Michael Milo crashed through to hurry and bump quarterback Jon Kronemeyer, whose pitch to RB Evan Davis Jr was well behind him and into the end zone. Davis turned back, scooped it up, and decided to run it out over the goal-line to try to give the Stingers possession on the 20. He never made it. Stretching to place the ball outside the goal line, Davis had it knocked loose by Huskies tackle Brent Dancey. Ludtke recovered to bring Canada West its fourth straight national title.
Until then the option had worked well for coach Pat Sheahan's Stinger offence. An earlier option play provided Concordia with its only offensive TD, as Davis zipped 54 yards early in the second half. A week earlier in the Atlantic Bowl burned Acadia for 75 yards on a similar play.
Early-on Saskatchewan repeatedly left Concordia in the game with dropped passes. Two looked like sure TDs. Wide open in the end zone, RB Doug Rozon dropped one on the Huskies' first offensive sequence. On their third series, wide receiver Derek Malinchuk dropped one while in behind the defence near the sideline. A 56-yard interception return TD by Stingers' Greg Casey late in the third quarter put the Huskies down by three going into the fourth quarter. Each QB threw 32 passes. Ryan Reid completed 14 for 272 yards and Jon Kronemeyer, in his first ever start for Concordia, completed 13 for 201 but had three passes intercepted — all by rookie Kurtis Albers, a Vanier Cup record. Ludtke received the Ted Morris Memorial Trophy as MVP.
Other Game-high stats:
Rozon led in rushing (23 carries, 140 yards);
Saskatchewan's Jaret Rennie was leading receiver with five,
while Stingers' Sylvain Girard led in receiving yards (100).
Punting, Matt Kellett of the Huskies averaged 49.4 yards,
Concordia's Dave Miller-Johnston had 43.9.
Kellett went three-for-four in field goals, the longest from 40 yards.
Miller-Johnston was one-for-two and clicked from 35 yards.
