Mustangs versus Waterloo

Joyce Wang

HE PLAYED LIKE A “DARLING,” IF YOU’RE A WATERLOO FAN. Waterloo netminder Curtis Darling was vital in Waterloo’s 3-1 victory over the hometown Mustangs.

The men’s hockey team battled the Waterloo Warriors at the John Labatt Centre last weekend. Western fell 3-1 to the Warriors in a game decided mostly on special teams.

The Mustangs had four five-on-three powerplay chances but only capitalized on one. They outshot Waterloo 37-28 but were stymied by Warriors goalie Curtis Darling.

The women’s hockey team played three games in an exhibition tourney in Guelph over the break, beating the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, who will be newcomers to Ontario University Athletics next season.

On the hardwood, both the men and women’s hoopsters couldn’t top the surging Guelph Gryphons last weekend.

The Gryphons used a swarming defence to beat Western 56-49. Danny Jeon paced the ’Stangs on the score sheet with 12 points and Andrew Wedemire chipped in with eight rebounds. For Wednesday’s results against Brock, see Mustangs come up short versus rival Brock.

On the women’s side, high-octane offensive performances from Amanda Anderson, Nadine Paron and Bess Lennox couldn’t stop the Guelph opposition. Anderson led the way with 26 points, and she, along with Paron and Lennox, combined for 57 of Western’s 69 points in the 75-69 defeat. The women’s team is now 7-4 on the season.

The men’s volleyball team was perfect in the Western Rodeo Tournament at Alumni Hall last weekend. The lads defeated the Windsor Lancers, the Guelph Gryphons and the London club team.
