The McMaster Marauders dumped the Ottawa Gee-Gees 41-7 to win their OUA quarter-final football game at a rain soaked Ron Joyce Stadium.
Marshall Ferguson tossed two touchdowns in the win and ran for another.
He finished with 17 for 31 with 200 yards passing and had two passes intercepted.
Ottawa mustered just 10 first downs and 30 rushing yards in the game as the McMaster defence stymied the Gee-Gee offence.
McMaster’s defence and special teams also chipped in two touchdowns with Jeremy Kyei recovering a Gee-Gee fumble on a bad punt-snap while Steven Ventresca intercepted Ottawa’s Aaron Colbon for a touchdown.
McMaster scored on its first two drives to open a 14-0 lead which would be all the Marauders needed to finish the Gee-Gees.
Marauder running back Wayne Moore dominated the opening drives of the game which saw McMaster move 78 yards on nine plays.
Ferguson capped the drive with a one-yard quarterback sneak but Moore did the heavy lifting rushing for 50 yards on six carries.
Moore finished the day leading all rushers for 140 yards on 22 attempts.
On McMaster’s next possession, Ferguson tossed a 21-yard pass to Daniel Vandervoot to cap another nine play drive this time for 79-yards.
Ferguson also threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Ben O’Connor.
Tyler Crapigna added field goals of 15 and 34 yards.
The Guelph Gryphons defeated Windsor 31-21, so the OUA semi-finals are set for next Saturday.
At 1 pm, Guelph meets Queen’s in Kingston.
