(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor Lancers split two games on the road this past weekend and improved their record to 8-6-2 in the process. The Lancers are now tied for 3rd spot in the OUA West with Guelph.
It started Friday evening in Waterloo as Windsor dropped a 5-2 decision to the Warriors. Despite taking a 1-0 lead into the second period, courtesy of a Dylan Denomme goal, the Waterloo floodgates opened up with a flurry, pushing the home side into a 3-goal lead.
Tyson Ness chopped the lead to two mid-way through the 3rd period but, with the net empty, Riley Sonneburg iced the result.
Michael Doan started in goal for Windsor and faced 18 shots over two periods. He was replaced for the final 20 minutes by Blake Richard.
Windsor still only managed two goals Saturday night, but with a shored up defence, that was all they needed against Laurier. The Lancers salvaged the two-game road trip with a 2-1 victory over the Golden Hawks.
Laurier opened the scoring but Windsor barred the door from that point on. Chris Scott tied the game at 9:16 of the 1st period and Dylan Seguin got the game winner 90 seconds into the 3rd.
Richard was credited with the win in goal for the Lancers as he made 22 saves.
With one game remaining before the break, Windsor has a chance to gain some ground in the standings. The Lancers trail 2nd place Western by 2 points as the Mustangs ride into Windsor Wednesday. Game time at South Windsor Arena is 7:30 pm.
In related news, Windsor’s captain Kenny Bradford has been named to the CIS all-star roster. The 4th year defenseman will be the only Lancer to appear in this year’s two-game exhibition series to be held in Toronto December 12 and 13.
