TORONTO (September 28, 2014) – For the second consecutive game, the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks men’s soccer team was handed a loss by the No. 2 York Lions as they fell 4-0 on the road Sunday afternoon.

After losing to York at home exactly one week ago, a slow start against the division-leading Lions proved costly for the purple and gold. Henry Moody of Toronto, Jonathan Lao of Unionville, Ont., and Jarek Whiteman of Brampton, Ont., all found the back of the net behind Hawks starting keeper Julien John of Oakville, Ont., to give York a 3-0 lead through 45 minutes.

Head coach MARIO HALAPIR looked to spark his team in the second half by replacing John with Ryan Mandryk of Ancaster, Ont., and the tactic worked as the Hawks proved to be the better team in the second half. Laurier fired four shots on goal in the final 45 but could not beat keeper Colm Vance of Bradford, Ont.

Eventually, the Lions would add another late off the foot of Tyrone Downes of Markham, Ont., their only shot of the half, to round out the scoring.

The loss drops the Hawks to 3-5-2 on the year while York remains unbeaten, improving their record to 10-0-1.

Laurier will look to rebound next weekend when they head to Hamilton to face the McMaster Marauders. Game time is set for 3:15 p.m. at Ron Joyce Stadium.
