WARRIOR HEAD COACH SPURS TURNAROUND IN JUST TWO YEARS

Two years ago, the Waterloo Warriors men's hockey team found themselves with a 1-22-1 record and out of the playoffs. Since then, head coach Karl Taylor has joined the Warriors and have slowly climbed out of the Far West basement, earning a playoff spot last year while sporting an 8-14-0-2 record.

This year, the Warriors are enjoying an above .500 season following two big regular season wins over division rivals, the Western Mustangs. Adding a come-from-behind victory over the Lakehead Thunderwolves and claiming the Western Christmas Invitational, Waterloo is unbeated in eight games. Not a bad start to the 2005 and the beginning of the second half of the season.

Time will tell if the Warriors will be able to withstand the tough Far West division competition. This weekend Waterloo hosts the defending OUA champion York Lions, before travelling to Thunder Bay to take on the Lakehead Thunderwolves in a series that could mean the difference between first and fourth in the division.
