WATERLOO – The Golden Hawk men’s hockey program had a solid week, pickup up points from two of the country’s top 10 teams including the #4 Western Mustangs and the #8 Waterloo Warriors.

Wednesday’s cross-town battle against the Waterloo Warriors was expected to be close. The last time the two teams met was in early November when Waterloo won 5-4. Laurier captain Richard Colwill picked up the first goal of the evening getting the puck by Curtis Darling while on the power-play. Minutes later the Warriors would even the score on a shot by the Warrior captain Adam Methgael. Rookie defenseman Dan Ehrman scored the game-winner in the third with only eight minutes remaining in the game and the Hawks were able to hold on for the victory.

On Saturday evening, members of the Golden Hawk ‘Hawkey Alumni Club’ were on hand for what would be an excellent game.

Before the puck dropped, a special presentation was made, as two financial awards were established to assist academic and athletic achievement. HAC president Sonny Kumpf, Director of Athletics and Recreation PETER BAXTER and alumn Jake Arnott and Barry Irwin presented the awards to goalie Justin Day and forward Nick Vergeer.

Laurier’s Nick Vergeer opened scoring for the night as one of the two goals in the first period. Matt Grennier scored the second five minutes later while shorthanded. Early in the second the Mustangs were able to tie the game up with two power-play goals, both by Ryan Waldner. Before the period would end however, Laurier would go up two more goals, both on the power-play, from Riley Moher and captain Richard Colwill. In the third, the teams traded goals making the final 5-3 for the purple and gold. Justin Day had a spectacular night stopping 43 shots – twice as many as the Hawks had on Scott Dickie.

Only two games remain in the men’s hockey regular season schedule. On Thursday evening, the team travels to Guelph to face the Gryphons and then the team returns to the Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex on Saturday to face the York Lions at 7:30pm.
