The Lakehead Thunderwolves hockey team’s seven-game winning streak ended tonight with a hard-fought 3-2 loss at Laurier.  Ryan Daniels was outstanding in the Golden Hawks net, making 45 saves in the game.

Lakehead controlled the play for most of the first period, but Laurier scored the only goal in the opening stanza when Thomas MIddup beat Wolves’ goaltender Jeff Bosch at the 7:15 mark.  Lakehead outshot Laurier 17-10 in the first.

The Golden Hawks extended their lead ahead to 2-0 at 8:02 of the second period on a James Marsden goal.  Lakehead closed the gap to 2-1 at 16:43 on the power play when Trevor Gamache finally solved Daniels, with assists going to Matt Caria and Adam Sergerie.  Shots on goal in the middle frame were 13-9 in favour of the Thunderwolves.

Mitch Lebar put Laurier ahead 3-1 midway through the third period, but Lakehead narrowed the Hawks’ lead to 3-2 when Jake Carrick scored from Victor Anilane and Andrew Wilkins at 15:46.  The Wolves continued to apply pressure, outshooting the Golden Hawks 17-5 in the final 20 minutes, but Daniels was equal to the task as Laurier held on for the win.

Lakehead returns home next weekend for a pair of games with the Guelph Gryphons.
