Guelph quarterback Jazz Lindsey was 18 for 34 in passing in the loss, for 280 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions. Carl Trivieri was the game’s top receiver with six catches for 136 yards.
The Gryphons host Windsor on Saturday at 8 p.m. in a first-round playoff game.
Windsor was 4-4 this season. The teams played each other on Sept. 2, with Guelph winning 24-23 at home.
