Senior forward Kyle Trudell had a dream weekend with five markers, including a four-goal performance on Saturday, as the Lancers (7-6-1) swept the sixth-ranked Lakehead Thunderwolves (11-4-0) with 3-2 and 7-2 victories in Windsor, Ont.
On Friday, the Windsor native tallied the winning goal in the second period as the Lancers hung on for a close 3-2 win. In game two of the weekend series, the 24-year-old right winger found the back of the net on four occasions, including three times in the third period.
The pair of victories was critical for the Lancers, in order to remain in the playoff hunt in the very competitive OUA Far West division. Windsor is currently fourth, two points behind Waterloo, but with one game in hand.
No. 6 Lakehead, which is without the services of several star players currently representing Canada at the Winter Universiade in Austria, is second behind Western.
Sprinter Emmanuel Parris of Sherbrooke, and basketball players Eric Breland of UCCB and Tai Tuisamoa of Regina were the other nominees on the men's side.
