(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor Lancers split a double header against the Lakehead Thunderwolves this past weekend, at South Windsor Arena. After skating to a 2-0 victory Friday night, they dropped the rematch on Saturday by the score of 5-2.

With the split, the Lancers sit in 3rd place in the OUA West with a 7-5-2 record, 3 points behind York and 2 points ahead of both Guelph and Ryerson.

With the goaltenders putting on an exhibition, it wasn’t until 17:21 of the 2nd period that Dylan Seguin finally found the answer to Lakehead’s Devin Green, when he was set up by Mike Christou and Blake Blondeel.

Dylan Denomme doubled the lead when he beat Green at 4:28 of the 3rd, with assists to Seguin and Steve Anthony.

Blake Richard took the win for Windsor by kicking out all 28 shots from the T-Wolves.

Lakehead turned the tables on Saturday, however, as they took the driver’s seat from the early going. After the Wolves jumped in front, Tyson Ness tied the score for Windsor, from Scot Prier and Eric Noel.

Windsor went in front in the 2nd period when Christou deflected a shot past Green, but Lakehead drew even midway through the period.

The T-Wolves owned the 3rd period and proceeded to score three unanswered goals.

This time Richard faced 44 shots as the Lancers let up on defence in search of their scoring touch.

Windsor will play a pair of games on the road, first against Waterloo and then in Kitchener, before return to South Windsor Arena on December 2. In the last home game of the calendar year the Lancers will play host to Western with the puck dropping at 7:30 pm.
