Waterloo freshman netminder Jhase Sniderman played a solid game for the Warriors and made a number of key stops to ensure the win.  Lakehead freshman netminder Kyle Moir had a tough night; allowing six goals. 

It was a hard hitting game with few penalties but the Warriors made the powerplay opportunities count; going 2-4 on the powerplay while the Wolves went 0-3.

Brock McPherson led the Wolves with a pair of goals and Dan Speer added a single.  Speer also added an assist and Jordan C. Smith had a pair of helpers.

Waterloo’s Sean Roche paced the Warriors; scoring a natural hat trick and singles were notched by Doug Spooner, Jordan Brenner, Chris Ray and Cody Fraser.
