Laurier: 4 Windsor: 0
The Mens Soccer team played their last home game of the season Friday night, against the Windsor Lancers in wet, rainy conditions. The Windsor team has given the Hawks the most trouble over the last two years, being the only team that the Hawks have a losing record against, and so the boys were out to prove a point. They started off in a dramatic fashion as Laurier kept the Windsor keeper busy with shot after shot. Soon Richie Antolcic
beat a Lancer player just beyond the penalty area. Richie blasted a shot that beat the keeper, but was intentionally saved by a Windsor defender by using his hands. A red card was given and a penalty shot awarded for Laurier, that Richie made no mistake of finishing. This goal was the starting point of an avalanche of goals, as the second goal came minutes later. Richie Antolcic
again beat his player on the wing and made a nice cross that
tucked home for his second goal in two games, giving the Hawks a 2-0 lead. It wasn’t long before the third goal was scored, as Andy Incitti
nailed a free kick from about thirty-five yards out that was saved by the keeper but the rebound was gobbled up by Dan Glibota
increasing the lead to 3-0. That set the stage for Laurier’s best goal so far this season as Kenny Nutt
beat two players before smashing a left foot shot into the top right corner absolutely taking all the wind out of the Windsor team.
The second half saw a strong defense lead by Dan Pilas
shut down any Windsor attack keeping the goals against to a minimum. Mark Ignor
had a solid game between the pipes as usual recording his sixth shutout of the season. “I thought we dominated the game from start to finish, we played really well despite the conditions.” stated Laurier coach BARRY MACLEAN
. The Hawks have a few days rest before they start preparing to travel to the Univeristy of Waterloo as they play Waterloo on October 16th at 3:00.
