WARRIORS WIN HOME TURF BATTLE

Game #2 Waterloo 2, Laurier 1

The Waterloo Warriors battled back to tie up the best of three play-off series against the Laurier Golden Hawks. Starting the scoring summary was Waterloo's Matt Levicki on a sweet pass from freshman Dave Philpott which was late in the second period. Putting the Warriors in more of a commanding lead was third period scorer Doug Spooner who played a double assisted puck that found the back of the net courtesy of Kevin Hurley and Mike Della Mora. The Golden Hawks tried to answer back with a power play goal by David Brown but were left at only one goal to Waterloo's two. Warriors Curtis Darling was noted for the win with 25 saves to his career.

Game #2 Lakehead 3, Guelph 0

The Lakehead Thunderwolves took their OUA West first round playoff series with a 3-0 win over the Guelph Gryphons, the sweep means Lakehead will play York in one of the OUA West semi-finals. The first goal was recorded by Jeff Richards who had some help from fellow team mates Joel Scherban and Mike Self. The second goal was accredited to Austin Wycisk with assists again from Joel Scherban and Steve Rawski. At the beginning of the final period Peter Cava was given the puck to make the final goal for the Thunderwolves.

Game #2 UQTR 5, RMC 1

The UQTR Patriotes met with the RMC Paladins for their second game of their best of three series with the Patriotes defeating the Paladins. This loss puts the Paladins out of playoff contention and finishes their season. Starting off the scoring sensation was sophomore Nicolas Pelletier on a power play opportunity early in the first period. Less than a minute later Patriotes Mathieu Thibodeau was given a pretty pass by second year Frederic Lavoie to sneak his way past the goalie. The Paladins came back and answered with a period closer that was double assisted by Tyler Middlebrook then to Nick Cregan and finally to Adrian Hartley who finished the play with a goal. The second period noted only one goal which was at the beginning of the period by Nicolas Pelletier for his second goal of the game. The third period was a tremendous success for the Patriotes as they recorded a whopping two goals to put themselves out of reach to the Paladins. Simon Nadeau took the opportunity first on a power play opportunity as did Philippe Pronovost at the end of the final period.

Game #2 Concordia 4, Ottawa 2

The Concordia Stingers scored three quick goals early in the first period and defeated the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees by a final score of 4-2. Martin Bricault was the Gee-Gees starter for a fourth consecutive game, having beaten the Stingers in his last two outings. Bricault made a spectacular save mid-way through the first period on a two-on-one, just moments before allowing a goal as Stingers forward Trevor Hawkins scored while Ottawa was short-handed. Concordia's power play kept coming as Jonathan Gautier scored while Jérôme Brière was in the penalty box with four minutes left in the first period, and their lead continued to increase when Sébastien Corbeil tallied just 41 seconds later. The Gee-Gees came out strong in the second period and scored three minutes in, as Jeff Pont beat goalie Patrick Lepage. Matt Armstrong added to the Stingers lead early in the third period on a breakaway and finished the game with one goal and two assists. Later in the frame, Gee-Gees forward Adam Vaughan managed his team's second goal on a power play, but it was too little too late.

Game #3 Waterloo 4, Laurier 2

The Waterloo Warriors claim the best of three series against home rivals the Laurier Golden Hawks. The beginning of the game would have not foreshadowed the end results because Laurier was out in the lead with two quick first period goals, both by veteran Tim Parsons. The Warriors answered back with three second period goals to put them in the front running of the game. Second year Kevin Hurley started the run for the Warriors with a goal assisted by Mike Della Mora. Fifth year Chris Hopiaviouri was second to follow of the four Waterloo goals, he was assisted again by Mike Della Mora and Kevin Hurley. Their final period goal was attributed to an unassisted Jordan Brenner. The third period hopes for the Golden Hawks was quickly over when Matt Levicki scored and put the game away for the Warriors.

Game #3 Ottawa 3, Concordia 2

The Ottawa Gee-Gees defeated the Concordia Stingers 3-2 in double overtime to win the OUA East best-of-three playoff series. The Gee-Gees came out as the first goal scores with evenly strength squads on the ice which was no match to Jeffrey Ponts and his assist crew of Jonathan Robert and Dylan Bliss. Adam Vaughan put Concordia on the board again with their second first period goal which Jonathan Robert again assisted along with Jerome Briere. Late in the second period the Gee-Gee's answered back to the Stingers two goals with Joey D'Amico finding the opportunity to put one past the Stingers goalie. Heading into the final bout Andrew Davis scored a goal with only16 seconds left in regulation, forcing the overtime periods. Adam Vaughan scored the winner at 5:04. It was his second goal of the game and gave the Gee-Gees a seat at the OUA Semi-Finals.
