(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor Lancers have been knocked out of 1st place in the OUA West in the wake of their first loss of the season at the hands of the Laurier Golden Hawks. St Denis Fieldhouse was the scene of the shocking event as the visiting Hawks out-lasted Windsor 60-53 to slide ahead of the Lancers in the standings. It was the first loss on home court for the Lancers since November 2010.

The defence was the difference between the two teams as Laurier held the potent Lancer shooters to single digits in the second and third frames. The Hawks led 20-17 at the end of the first 10 minutes and then extended their lead to 4 points by holding Windsor to just 9 points, in the 2nd quarter.

The Hawks then double their margin by out-scoring Windsor 11-7 in the third before the Lancers put up their usual numbers in the 4th. However, Laurier kept pace with Windsor during the final 10 minutes and only gave up a single point of their margin.

Korissa Williams provided much of Windsor’s offense with 19 points, 4 assists, and 7 boards. However, the rest of the squad couldn’t generate much offense as the Hawks blocked 5 Windsor attempts and stole the ball a further 5 times.

Windsor’s record is now 9-1, a half game behind Laurier in the OUA West, and with one game in hand. The Lancers will close out January with four home games, starting with Carleton on Friday and Ottawa the next night. The tipoff both evenings will be at 6:00 pm.
