Saturday’s loss among Gaels’ days of infamy

September 29, 2013

LONDON — No football team ever likes having 50 points dumped on it. If you’re the Queen’s Golden Gaels, it stings a whole lot more when the Western Mustangs do it, as they did Saturday in a 50-31 Ontario University Athletics victory at TD Stadium.

Sadly for the Gaels, the Mustangs seem to take delight in doing so.

The 50 points the Gaels allowed Saturday was fifth most scored against a Queen’s team in its 132-year history. Of the four more dubious games, two also came against Western: 59 points against, Oct. 22, 2005, and 55 points, Nov. 7, 1959.

It’s the most points scored against Queen’s since Western beat the Gaels 46-10 in London, Oct. 2, 2010.

Queen’s most inglorious performance came Oct. 21, 2000, at Wilfrid Laurier, where the Golden Hawks beat the Gaels 67-7.
