GAME RECAP AND SUMMARY BY JOHN METCALFE

With #CFC100  Tailback Jordan Lyons not present, the Stamps offensive line none the less cleared holes that chewed up 323 yards for his replacements. #CFC100  Domenic Mandalfino led the Stamps ground attack with 154 yards on 16 attempts and a 6 yard score.  Justin Veltri picked up the slack as he crossed the goal line from 6, 14 and 20 yards out and ended the day with 92 yards on 10 carries.  Stampeders other major came from Tyler Roy hooking up with Mason Brown from 12 yards out.  Adam Preocanin booted field goals of 42 and 17 yards, was 5 for 5 on convert attempts and earned a rouge on a 67 yard kickoff.  Guelph majors were scored by Aiden Fraser on a 10 yard pass from Walker Breen, Breen finding Noel Amaya from 22 yards away and Nathan Small on a one yard run.  Gryphons kicker Gabe Simieniec kicked two converts and had an 85 yard kickoff rouge to start the game.  Stampeders will meet the Toronto Jr. Argonauts for the Championship on August 8th with kick off slated for 6:00 p.m.  Junior Argos earned their berth by edging the Peterborough Wolverines 23-22 in their semi final.
