(WINDSOR, ON) – With a 1-0 quarter-final loss to the McMaster Marauders last night at Alumni Field, the Windsor Lancers men’s soccer team ended their season with much left to achieve.

Seven cautions marred the well-matched competition between the 12-2-2 Lancers and the 11-5 Marauders. One McMaster player was seen flipping-off the audience while the visiting coach could be heard complaining about Windsor’s play.

With not much to choose from between the two sides, McMaster was lucky to leave with a 1-nil victory courtesy of a 75th minute penalty, called on a questionable hand ball. It brings into question a linesman telling McMaster’s Aleks Vincic, early in the game, “Don’t worry. You’ve got this.”

While on the road, the women’s squad was also eliminated from the post season after a 1-0 victory by Laurier in Waterloo. A 68th minute goal was all the Golden Hawks needed to end the season for the women, in their quarter-final match.
