(WINDSOR, ON) – The Guelph Gryphons broke the 7-game winning streak enjoyed by the Lancers with a 5-2 margin of victory Friday evening, at Alumni Field.

The visitors took a 2-0 lead into the 2nd half where a wild five goals were scored by the two sides. Jack Sargent got the Lancers on the board midway through the half but the defense couldn’t hold the Gryphons down.

Guelph would score twice more before veteran Mike Pio notched Windsor’s second goal to close out the scoring.

Head coach Steve Hart managed to straighten out the Lancers before they met Brock on Saturday. The squad worked out their frustrations by securing a 4-nil victory over the Badgers and improved their record to 10-2-1 on the season.
