The Lakehead Thunderwolves defeated the Queen’s Golden Gaels 6-2 Friday night at the Fort William Gardens in Thunder Bay.  Lakehead Captain Jeff Richards led the way with 2 goals and an assist while Richard Molenaar added a goal and an assist.  Lakehead singles came from Ryan Maunu, Jarryd Brend, and Dan Speer.  Freshman Mark Soares added 2 assists. 

Queens’ goals came from Cameron Chapman and Blake Pronk.   

Lakehead now has a 8-2-1 OUA record (10-5-1 overall) and Queen’s goes to 1-7-3 in conference play and 3-8-5 overall.

The Thunderwolves had the edge in play for a lot of the game but Queen’s had quite a few dangerous scoring opportunities.  Chris Whitley won his seventh game of the season; turning aside 25 Queen’s shots.  Queen’s netminder Ryan Gibb turned aside 34 of 40 Lakehead shots.

Lakehead led 1-0 after the first and 4-0 after the second.  Queen’s got two goals early in the third to make the game close but the Wolves potted two more to put the W in the win column.
