WATERLOO – The #1 CIS ranked Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks (15-1-1 regular season, 12-0-4 exhibition) swept weekend action defeating the #10 Queen’s Golden Gaels in Kingston 2-1 on Saturday night and Rochester Institute of Technology on Sunday night 4-0.

In Kingston, Queen’s gave the Hawks a tough time after the first eight minutes of play where Laurier dominated including Andrea Ironside of Collingwood, who picked up her fourth goal of the season. Only ten minutes later, and after a Queen’s power play goal, Toronto’s Lauren Meschino put the puck by goalkeeper Claire Hunt in what would eventually be the game-winner.

Morgan Wielgosz stopped 19 of 20 shots on net putting her goals against average at 1.11 – fourth in the country and first amongst goaltenders playing more then six games.

Less than 24 hours Coach RICK OSBORNE had his team playing RIT in international exhibition action. The game placement helped the Hawks continue to prepare for multiple games in as many days.

“After arriving home late last night, we were looking for a high energy and offensive game,” said Head Coach RICK OSBORNE. “A 4-0 shutout serves the purpose of keeping this team prepared for any action that comes our way.”

It wasn’t until the second period where the Hawks were able to get the puck by the RIT net-minder. Ironside opened scoring again, this time putting it in the corner of the net. Just over a minute later, the Hawks struck again. Andrea Bevan of Collingwood beat Breanna Dobbe on her glove-side.

Later in the period Samantha Cully picked up a loose puck and escaped on a break-away, scoring her 9th goal of the season. Fiona Aiston finished off the scoring – on the power-play with a deflection off of a shot by Jessica Judges.

The Hawks kept the pressure on all night. “We were skating and moving the puck well tonight,” said Osborne. “We left them no time and no space to move.”

Kristen Trost got the shutout against RIT. After 60-minutes of play, she faced only 15 shots, due to the strength of the Golden Hawk defense. Laurier outshot their American opponents 52-15.

The Golden Hawks sit in first in the OUA, 11 points ahead of their closest competition – Guelph. The team hosts Guelph on Thursday at 7:30pm before traveling to Western on Saturday for a 2pm game.
