THE LOW DOWN
In the midst of their second five-game losing streak of the season, the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks will be looking to get themselves out of last place in the OUA this weekend as they take on the No. 10 Western Mustangs and the Windsor Lancers.

The Hawks will be hoping a boost of energy in the form of a School Day Game crowd in London will be the cure to their recent struggles when they face the Mustangs on Friday morning. The Hawks played a strong game against the Mustangs in their first matchup, losing a narrow 3-1 decision.

Returning home on Saturday, Laurier squares off against the Lancers, a team that sits just two points ahead of them in the conference standings. The Hawks will be hoping to avenge a 4-0 loss to the Lancers in Windsor back in November and leapfrog Windsor to get out of the OUA basement.
