WATERLOO — Rookie running back Kaine Stevenson rushed for 194 yards and three touchdowns Saturday to lead the Guelph Gryphons to a 39-13 win over the Waterloo Warriors in Waterloo.

It was the third straight win for Guelph (3-1) who sit tied for second place in the OUA standings with the McMaster Marauders. The Gryphs host the 4-0 Western Mustangs Saturday at Alumni Stadium.

Saturday in Waterloo, Guelph led 17-13 heading into the fourth quarter before blowing it open with 22 unanswered points.

Stevenson's longest run of the day, a 36-yard touchdown run, got things rolling early in that fourth quarter. He also scored on runs of three and one yards.

Guelph native Tavius Robinson had a heck of a day on the defensive side of the football, sacking Warriors quarterback Tre Ford three times.

Guelph quarterback Theo Landers threw for 163 yards on 11 of 19 passing with one touchdown and ran for 66 yards, including a touchdown.

Top receiver was Kade Belyk, who had seven catches for 82 yards and one touchdown.
