The problem is the router only supports L3/IP access lists.
If the pc's have fixed IP's, either static config, or set same ip in DHCP (based on mac) you can add a acl to block the IP's

I assume the router is only used for Internet access.

If the router plugs into a Cisco switch you can do mac filtering on the Cisco switch port connecting to the router.

It is possible to do this.

Simply put the port into layer 2 mode (via switchport).
Remove the layer 3 details.
Configure your layer 2 details on the physical port.
Enable intelligent bridging (bridge irb)
Create a BVI
Configure layer 3 details on the new BVI logical interface
Apply a MAC ACL to the BVI.

As an example:

bridge irb
!
interface FastEthernet0/0
no ip address
no ip route-cache
no ip mroute-cache
bridge-group 1
no shut
!
interface BVI1
ip address 1.1.1.1 255.255.255.0
!
bridge 1 protocol ieee
bridge 1 route ip
bridge 1 address aabb.ccdd.eeff discard
!
end

Note the above would drop pretty much all traffic from the MAC specified.

With what you're attempting to do, you'd be best off using VLANs, and managing it that way, then use layer 3 ACLs for filtering on the specific subnets. This would be far less administrative overhead in the long run.
