The CIS No. 5 Lakehead Thunderwolves men’s hockey team opened the second half of the OUA regular season with a hard-earned 1-0 win over the Queen’s Gaels Friday night at the Memorial Arena in Kingston, Ontario.

Lakehead’s lone goal came from a long shot by Andrew Brown at 8:42 of the second; assisted by Dan Speer and Brock McPherson. 

Queen’s outshot Lakehead 38-35 in the game and Lakehead netminder Chris Whitley earned the shutout.  Whitley had to be sharp in the final period as the Gaels pushed hard to tie the game and Whitley turned aside 16 Queen’s shots in the third.  Queen’s freshmen netminder Brady Morrison also played another good game for the Gaels; turning aside 34 Lakehead shots.

Lakehead goes to 12-3-2 in OUA play (18-6-2 overall); while Queen’s goes to 6-10-2 in OUA play (8-13-2 overall).

It was a hard-hitting but clean game as Lakehead was 0-2 on the powerplay while Queen’s was 0-4 with the man advantage.     

The two games face off again Saturday afternoon and the rematch goes at 2:00 pm EST and can be heard live on Queen’s Campus Radio CFRC in the Kingston area on 101.9 FM and via their website at with Tyler King calling the action and Bryan Wyatt helping out his Queen’s colleagues with the colour commentary.
