McMaster Marauders did what they had to do, but didn’t get the help they needed.

Mac beat the Guelph Gryphons 27-22 at Ron Joyce Stadium, but a 36-8 Waterloo win over Laurier, means the Marauders will not make the playoffs.

Mac opened the scoring early in the first quarter on a one-yard run by Daniel Bosett.

The Marauders led 12-9 at the half and 12-11 after three quarters.

In the final frame, McMaster got majors from Liam Putt on a one-yard run and a 70-yard bomb from Andreas Dueck to Jackson Cooling to wrap up their scoring.

Dueck, playing in his final game as a graduating senior, completed 15-34 passes for 213 yards, one TD and one interception.

Guelph was led by Kiondre Smith, who racked up an incredible 369 all-purpose yards. He had 10 catches for 123 yards, 4 kickoff returns for 144 yards and nine punt returns for 102 yards.

Mac ends the season with a 3-3 record.
