The Windsor Lancers wrapped up their pre-season this past weekend, as they hosted the visiting Laurier Golden Hawks last Friday evening, before heading to Oxford, Ohio on October 5 to take on the University of Miami Redhawks.

While the Lancers found redemption from the previous week’s heartbreaking loss to Laurier, their Division I counterparts started the NCAA pre-season with a win over the Windsor Lancers.
South Windsor Arena was abuzz as the Lancers looked to rewrite a previous 4-3 loss to the Hawks. Jadran Beljo scored two in the first, while rookie Greg Lamoureux notched his fourth point of the pre-season with a goal for the Hawks.

While no team could alter the score in the second period, Richard Cameron upped the Lancer lead to 3-1 early in the third period.

As the final few minutes ticked away, rookies Greg Trichillo and Tanner Olstad of the Hawks scored to even the score at three. With no hero emerging in overtime, a shootout would be the final resolution.

Beljo and Spencer Pommells scored in the shootout for the Lancers while the Hawks’ Kyle Morrison and Lamoureux were both stopped by netminder Parker Van Buskirk. The Lancers skated away with a final score of 4-3.

The same spirit that boosted the Lancers past the Hawks could not be found when the team took the ice at Goggin Ice Center to play the University of Miami-Ohio Redhawks. The Lancers gave up three in the first and five in the third, giving up a final score of 8-2 to end their pre-season run at 2-4-0.

The 2013 to 2014 campaign begins this weekend for the Lancers as they return to South Windsor to host the Carleton Ravens in back-to-back home games. This weekend is the only meeting of the regular season between these two teams.
