THE SKINNY
Winners of three of their past four games, the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks (6-5) prepare for two crucial divisional games this week as they host the Windsor Lancers (7-4) on Wednesday before travelling to London, Ont., to face the Western Mustangs (8-3) on Saturday.

FAN INFORMATION

- the Mustangs have been rolling since the calendar turned as they have won four consecutive games, including road wins over the Brock Badgers and Maruaders last weekend
