(WINDSOR, ON) – Coming from behind in both weekend games, the Laurentian Voyageurs surprised the Windsor Lancers by sweeping the series in dramatic form.

On Friday evening, the Lancers built a 3-0 lead by the midway point of the game, before Laurentian got on the board, shortly before the end of the 2nd period. But in the 3rd, Laurentian stormed the Windsor goal, scoring 6, with three coming in less than a minute.

The two squads were back at it Saturday afternoon and Windsor, again, made the first move.

After a scoreless 1st period, Windsor broke the stalemate with power play goals from Dylan Seguin and Paul Bezzo. And, again, the Voyageurs notched a springboard goal before the end of the 2nd.

The visitors then took advantage in the 3rd with two goals to seal the game and the sweep.

The Lancers (6-3-1) head out on the road to meet Brock and York. They return home for two against Lakehead on November 20 and 21. The puck will drop at 7:30 pm both nights.
