The CIS No. 6 Lakehead Thunderwolves men’s hockey team lost 3-1 for the second straight night to the No. 4 Laurier Golden Hawks Saturday night at the Sun Life Financial Arena in Waterloo, Ontario.

Lakehead now has a 16-8-1-1 OUA record (22-11-1-1 overall); while the division leading Hawks go to 20-4-1 in OUA play.  The loss also puts Lakehead in fourth place in the OUA Far West Division while Laurier remains two points ahead of second place Western.  

Lakehead’s goal again came from Brock McPherson; just like Friday’s game.  Laurier’s goals came from Curtis Pettapiece, Rob Bernardi, and Jean-Michel Rizk. 

Lakehead again outshot the Hawks 23-20 but Laurier netminder Jeff MacDougald picked up his second win of the weekend over the Wolves and 19th (19-3-1) of the season while Wolves sophomore netminder Kyle Moir’s OUA mark went to 8-4-1-1.

Lakehead was 1-6 on the powerplay while Laurier was 1-5.  The loss puts Lakehead’s OUA regular season losing streak at five games; a new Thunderwolves record. 

Lakehead finishes OUA regular season play next weekend when they host the CIS No. 9 Western Mustangs at the Fort William Gardens in Thunder Bay on Friday and Saturday night.
