Laurier: 0 Western: 0
After being sent on a wild goose chase to get to a field, the Laurier men’s soccer team ventured out to play the number one team in the country, Western. It was a cold, rainy day and the game was very scrappy from the get go. The game was even throughout the first half but as the game continued it became to get rough and chances opened up for both teams. With ten minutes remaining Western sent a striker in on a breakaway. Dan Pilas, the Laurier sweeper, came flying back and was able to catch him and just poke the ball free killing any opportunity that Western could have had. The Hawks had another close call but this time were saved by their goalie, Mark Ignor. Western was able to get a shot off that was deflected in front of the Hawks net, landing right on the foot of another Western player who attempted to pass it to a wide open player in front. Mark dived across and protected the shutout to much of everyone’s relief. The best chance for Laurier came with about five minutes left as Laurier began to put pressure on the Western back three. Dan Gilbota received the ball just inside the 18-yard box and slid a neat pass to Chris Booth who just missed wide. The game finished with Mark Ignor recording his 7th shutout in a 0-0 tie. Everyone played well and there should be special mention to Kenny Nutt, Braden Douglas and Tim Labar for a solid game despite being hacked all over the field. “I thought we played well, but now we have to focus on the playoffs” explained head coach BARRY MACLEAN. The Hawks will host their first playoff game this upcoming week to whoever finishes the tight battle for third, as they will be looking to erase the poor performance of last year’s playoff run from everyone’s mind.
