The CIS No. 10 Lakehead Thunderwolves men’s hockey skated to a 3-1 win over the tough York Lions before 3210 fans Friday night at the Fort William Gardens in Thunder Bay. 

Lakehead goes to 7-3-1 in OUA play and 9-5-1 overall while York goes to 4-5-1 in conference play and  6-6-1 overall. 

It was an entertaining game from start to finish with some hard hitting, good goaltending from both sides, and some very pretty goals. The Lions played a very solid game; considering the long trip up to Thunder Bay and the fact that their head coach had stepped down.  

The Wolves scoring came from Kris Hogg, Mark Soares, and Pierre-Marc Guilbault with Soares and Guilbault picking up an assist each also.  Soares and Guilbault's goals were pro goals; both blasting rockets in the top right corner.  York’s goal was notched by Kyle Searle.

Lakehead netminder Kyle Moir (3-2-1 OUA) picked up his third win of the season and was very sharp.  York goalie David Davenport made a number of big saves on the night and was especially quick with his glove hand.  Davenport was busy on the night as Lakehead outshot York 43-27.

York was 1-6 on the powerplay while Lakehead was 0-4. 

It appeared that Lakehead defencemen Jordan C. Smith and Ryan Baird picked up minor injuries on the night and may not be available to play in Saturday’s rematch. 

The Molson's Three Stars were:
1) Lakehead: Pierre-Marc Guilbault
2) Lakehead: Kris Hogg
3) Lakehead: Kyle Moir 

The two teams play again Saturday night with action facing off at 7:30 pm EST at the Fort William Gardens.  The game will be videowebcast live on a pay per view basis with ordering information available at   Rock 94 FM Sports Director Bryan Wyatt will be calling the play by play and Argus Sports Editor Mike St. Jean will be handling the colour, pre-game and intermission duties.  Fans will need hi speed internet and Windows Media Player to watch the broadcasts. 

Saturday’s game will also feature a fun and unique fundraising event by Thunderwolves Hockey and The Kidney Foundation; 2,000 Whoopee Cushions will be sold at the door for two dollars apiece with all proceeds going to The Kidney Foundation.  During the third period; all the fans that purchased cushions will be directed to perform a simultaneous Whoopee Cushion Sit and make a sound unlike anything ever heard before at the Fort William Gardens; and all for a great cause!
