OUTLOOK September 7th – Laurier at Toronto, 7:00pm Head Coach: Greg DeLaval 2008 Record: 2-6 (8th in the OUA) Laurier All-Time Record vs. Toronto: 27-12 Current Streak: Laurier 10 wins, did not compete last season Outlook for 2009: The Toronto Varsity Blues finally broke their national record 49-game losing streak with two wins thanks to a large veteran presence in 2008, but their quarterback, top two rushers and receivers all graduated along with most of their offensive line. For the coming year the defence will be expected to tow the line for the first few games as the offence works their new weapons in at the skill positions. Scott Smith, who was a linebacker selected for the East-West Bowl, as well as Matt Morris and second year defensive lineman Lincoln Bryan will be important pieces in improving on a seventh ranked defence with the OUA last year. Quote from Head Coach: “We’ve got a lot of good players doing a lot of good things out here,” said DeLaval. “The intensity level amongst the players is high, which is great because we have a lot to work on as we prepare for the upcoming season. We lost some key players on offence and a lot of veteran leadership but I’m confident that our recruits and younger players can respond to the challenges they’ll face.”

October 3 – Ottawa vs. Laurier (Homecoming), 1:00pm Head Coach: Denis Piché 2008 Record: 4-4 (5th in the OUA) Laurier All-Time Record vs. Ottawa: 10-10-1 Current Streak: Laurier 1 win Outlook for 2009: This season will be one of transition after an up and down year on the field. Ottawa suffered an injury plagued year leading to a .500 record before going on a spoiler run on the road in the playoffs. Led by all-time leading passer in OUA history Josh Sacobie, the Gee Gees beat Guelph and then handily defeated previously unbeaten Queen’s by ten points. Ottawa couldn’t keep the drive going as they lost at Western in the Yates Cup final. Not only will the passer be new, but Brad Sinopoli will have an almost entirely different receiving corps save for the returning Cyril Adjeity. The Gees Gee’s have the skills to be a very talented offence; depending on how quickly the team can gel in the upcoming season. Quote from Head Coach: “We will see how well our development program has prepared some of these young men…it is exciting. There will be new guys in different roles … It is our job to get these guys going.” October 10 – Windsor vs. Laurier, 1:00pm Head Coach: Mike Morencie 2008 Record: 3-5 (7th in the OUA) Laurier All-Time Record vs. Windsor: 33-11-2 Current Streak: Laurier 2 wins Outlook for 2009: Last year was a true freshman season for quarterback Sam Malian who now carries the offensive load after record-setting running back Daryl Stephenson graduated. Malian connected for ten touchdowns compared to only five interceptions in a season that saw Windsor go 3-5 and just miss the playoffs with a loss in the final game of the year to McMaster. The defence will return ten starters as it looks to improve from being ranked 8th in the OUA. That side of the ball will be led by linebacker Chris Arquette who had a spot in the East-West Bowl and will try to help the team get better at stopping the ground attack in order to compete for a playoff spot. Quote from Head Coach: “We return seven players on offense and 10 players on defense for the 2009 season. The strength of our offense going into camp appears to be our offensive line with over 100 total career starts amongst the five starters. Sam Malian returns at quarterback and great things are expected of him. The defense will be veteran with the secondary being a much improved unit. In 2008 a number of freshmen played and gained valuable experience and that short term pain should turn into long term gain in 2009.”

September 12 – Laurier at Western, 1:00pm Head Coach: Greg Marshall 2008 Record: 7-1 (2nd in the OUA) Laurier All-Time Record vs. Western: 21-37-1 Current Streak: Western 2 wins Outlook for 2009: The Western Mustangs had a tremendous 2008 season, winning all but one of their regular season games and starting the year with a huge 22-point comeback victory over Ottawa. Western defeated Laurier in the semifinals before winning the Yates Cup over Ottawa. The Mustangs rode their success all the way into the Vanier Cup final before falling to the eventual national champion Laval. This year all-star quarterback Michael Faulds returns for a fifth year to lead an already impressive offence that added even more skill with running back Da’Shawn Thomas and graduate student Joshua Svec at wideout. Last year Western had ten all-stars and three all-Canadians, and returns 15 starters on both offence and defence. Quote from Head Coach: “The loss of Vaughn Martin leaves a big hole,” Marshall said. “Truthfully we don’t have a lot of depth at the defensive end spot. We may have to move some guys out there and try them out there and see (what happens). We’ll be tested at this position right away this season. We have two quarterbacks in Week 1 and Week 2 who can run with (Brad) Sinopoli in Ottawa and Luke Thompson with Laurier. We have to contain them or it’s gonna be a long day.” September 19 – Waterloo vs. Laurier, 1:00pm Head Coach: Dennis McPhee 2008 Record: 2-6 (9th in the OUA) Laurier All-Time Record vs. Waterloo: 36-14-1 Current Streak: Laurier 6 wins Outlook for 2009: The Warriors are looking to build on their improvements in 2008 and get back into playoff contention. The offence started to click last season and picked up 90 yards more per game then the previous year. Waterloo’s defence featured the OUA rookie of the year in linebacker Jordan Verdone, who will need to lead the development of the defensive corps now that the starters have another year under their belts. The Warriors have great potential at their skill positions and after returning 19 starters can hope to make the turn from youthful raw talent to veteran experience. Two of those returning players, Fourth year quarterback Evan Martin and fifth year veteran wide receiver Sean Cowie, will have a harder time connecting now that outside threat Josh Svec has transferred to Western. Quote from Head Coach: “There is an expectation every year to get better. There is a high level of commitment to play here at Waterloo. We are closer to raising the level of excellence athletically to the level of the University of Waterloo academically. It is a privilege not a right to play Warrior Football.”

October 17 – Laurier at Guelph, 1:00pm Head Coach: Kyle Walters 2008 Record: 4-4 (4th in the OUA) Laurier All-Time Record vs. Guelph: 36-13 Current Streak: Laurier 1 win Outlook for 2009: The Gryphons lost three games by a total of eight points last year leading to an exit in the first round of the playoffs. While the team had the third best point differential, the defence gave up over 600 yards in three games. The running game was second in the country and sees veteran back Nick Fitzgibbon return along with fifth year quarterback Justin Dunk. Guelph will have to cut back on penalties too after being the second most penalized team in the league. With another year of experience the core of the team looks ready to step up and improve on last year’s even record in the regular season. Quote from Head Coach: “This is the foundation for a very strong recruiting class. A lot of these players will be expected to contribute early in their careers. This is a group of young men who are excited to be Gryphons, but more importantly will represent the University of Guelph as student athletes over the next four years. Last season our defence was young and they gained valuable experience and I expect the benefits to be seen this season. I think our defence will be tougher against the run and athletic in the secondary to cover the oppositions receivers”

September 26 – Laurier at McMaster, 1:00pm Head Coach: Stefan Ptaszek 2008 Record: 4-4 (6th in the OUA) Laurier All-Time Record vs. McMaster: 41-12-1 Current Streak: Laurier 6 wins Outlook for 2009: The Marauders put on a late charge in the secondhalf of last season to make it into the playoffs after starting 0-3. While they did show spurts of offensive talent, McMaster is looking to become more of a threat to score and put their shutout loss in the playoffs to Laurier firmly in the past. The potential for a rebound year in 2009 is strong as they are returning 17 starters including the entire offensive and defensive lines as well as quarterback Ryan Fantham and slotback Kevin D’Hollander. Where the Marauders will surely be tested is their pass defence, which sees only five experienced DBs in their secondary. Ultimately how they play against other middle of the pack opponents will determine if McMaster can get back into the top four in the OUA. Quote from Head Coach: “I am optimistic about the season. We have a solid group of returning players, coupled with an outstanding recruiting class. I am really looking forward to getting on the field.”

October 24 – Queen’s vs. Laurier, 1:00pm Head Coach: Pat Sheahan 2008 Record: 8-0 (1st in the OUA) Laurier All-Time Record vs. Queen’s: 5-5 Current Streak: Queen’s 1 win Outlook for 2009: A perfect season for the first time in 20 years, the nation’s defensive player of the year and coach of the year all contributed to an incredible season for Queen’s, until the playoffs. Boasting the most balanced team on offence in the country the only problem came when injuries to running back Mike Griffin and defensive player of the year Thaine Carter crippled the Gaels in their home loss to Ottawa in the provincial semifinal. The upcoming season will see the core remain intact; giving the Gaels the ability to put up some points, but it will be a torch-passing year on the defensive side of the ball. The front seven will have three new starters with Shomari Williams, a transfer from the University of Houston, being the most anticipated roster addition for Queen’s. Quote from Head Coach: “Guys are coming back with resolve and we have a nucleus of veterans who will have last year in mind.”

GARY JEFFRIES

MANAGER OF FOOTBALL OPERATIONS AND HEAD COACH

Gary Jeffries enters his 32nd season as part of the Golden Hawk football coaching staff. It was not until 1970 that Gary would find his home at Wilfrid Laurier University. He played football for two years from 1970-1971 and was named an all-star defensive half back and Rookie of the Year. After his career at Laurier he was drafted by the Toronto Argonauts in 1972 and in 1973 he signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats but did not report. Gary also played four years in the Detroit Tiger organization prior to beginning his career at Laurier. In 1973 he was hired at Laurier as an assistant football coach and recreation director. From 1984-1988 Jeffries was also the women’s basketball coach at Laurier. In 1989 he took a break from football and coached the men’s basketball team until 1996. In 1994 Rick Zmich convinced Jeffries to return to the game which he loves so much. Gary has coached 31 football seasons at Laurier, with 19 as Defensive Coordinator. He was named the interim head coach midway through the 2002 season as a result of a labour dispute and was named the full time manager of football operations and head coach in 2003. He has coached in 19 Yates Cups including championship victories in the 1978, 1987, 2004 and 2005 seasons.

ASSISTANT COACHES

RYA N P Y E A R Ryan Pyear enters his fourth season as the Golden Hawk Offensive Coordinator after five outsanding years as Laurier’s starting Quarterback. As a player Ryan enjoyed much success and he now hopes to continue that tradition in the role of Offensive Coordinator. Some of Ryan’s playing accolades include being named as the OUA Rookie of the Year in 2001 after taking every single snap as a freshman. In 2004 Ryan was named as a first-team OUA all-star and second-team all-Canadian, and in 2005 he reached both first-team allconference and first-team all-Canadian status. That same year he was awarded Uteck Bowl and Vanier Cup MVP on the way to Wilfrid Laurier’s national supremacy on the gridiron. Other

His mother, Betty, and father Barry, currently live in Ryan’s home town of Belleville, Ontario. Barry Pyear is also a football coach at Laurier, coaching the running backs.

In 1988, Ron received the WLU Alumni Association Academic and Athletic Achievement Award. In 1989, Ron was named an OUA first-team all-star linebacker and team MVP. At present, Ron is a teacher and the Department Head of Social

“Hawks shutout Blues in Opening Battle” “Montoya carries for 160 yards and three touchdowns in Victory” by Ari Grossman

Luke Thompson (London, Ont.) had a good performance despite not being in rhythm with his receivers. The 6-3 quarterback completed 8 of 15 for 184 yards including a touchdown pass and run to Dustin Heap (Waterloo, Ont.) before allowing backup Evan Pawliuk (Kingston, Ont.) to see some playing time.

TORONTO – Mike Montoya picked up three touchdowns on 160 yards as the number seven nationally ranked Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks opened their season with a 36-0 shutout victory over the University of Toronto Varsity Blues in front of 2,347 fans.

“It was nice to get the first game out of the way,” said Thompson post-game. “We as an offence need to do better in terms of our execution, but a win is what we came here to get and it’s what we are walking away with. ” Josh Bishop (Mississauga, Ont.) had a career best with five receptions for 134 yards including a 47 yard catch and run. The performance beats his previous high of 132 yards in the 2008 homecoming contest.

Montoya, a fourth year running back from Burlington, Ontario picked up the starting role this season after the graduation of Ryan Lynch. On top of the three touchdown runs, Montoya had several big plays including a 22-yard run that saw several Blues bounced off of him.

“We made a lot of mistakes today especially in terms of penalties,” said Manager of Football Operations and Head Coach Gary Jeffries especially in reference to the 125 yards worth of penalties on 13 calls. “We definitely need to be better and we will be. It’s a learning curve every year and we’ll figure it out and be able to grow for next week.”

“We knew we were going to run the ball today,” commented Montoya on the 299 yards of rushing offence that the team put up. “Our offensive line made some big holes and with those holes anyone can run the way I did today – it’s a credit to them the yards that I put up.”

Defensively Mitchell Bosch (Langley, BC) and Courtney Stephen (Markham, Ont.) each led the team with five tackles apiece. Bosch also picked up a sack as well as the only interception of the game and returned it 31 yards. “We definitely played well today,” said Bosch when asked about the performance of the defence. “The line as well as the secondary worked hard through training camp to get to where we were today. We’ll look at some film now and prepare to do this again for Western.” Also adding to the defensive performance was rookie Nick Sapone (Richmond Hill, Ont.) who added four tackles as well as a sack. Chris Mamo (London, Ont.) was the only other Hawk to add points with a 24-yard field goal on one of his four attempts. Wilfrid Laurier (1-0) travels to London next weekend to compete against the number two-ranked University of Western Mustangs (1-0) at TD Waterhouse Stadium. Kickoff is set for 1:00 p.m. on the nationally televised game on The Score television network.

Western quarterback Michael Faulds finished the day 21 of 30 for 315 yards and two touchdown passes including a 77 yard pass and run to Thomas. Nathan Riva had the remainder of the Mustang offence with 86 yards on the ground and a major.

LONDON, Ont. – Shamawd Chambers pulled in a touchdown pass with 21 seconds left as the number six ranked Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks narrowly avoided a shutout to the number two Western Mustangs, 30-7.

The Golden Hawks did however improve on one area they focused on over the last week and that is penalties. Compared to last week’s 125 yards against, this week the purple-and-gold only saw 10 yards against them.

Laurier avoided being shutout for the first time in 25 years with the play late in the contest as 8,781 fans watched at TD Waterhouse Stadium.

Wilfrid Laurier hosts their first game of the season next week as they welcome their cross-town rival, the Waterloo Warriors at University Stadium for a 1:00 p.m. kickoff. Tickets for the game are available on www.laurierathletics.com and the gates open at noon.

“We played tremendously on defence and didn’t quit,” said manager of football operations and head coach Gary Jeffries. “We kept battling despite the score and the field position. We had no offence - it’s that simple. We have to be better.” Golden Hawks were only able to put up 208 yards of offence compared to Western’s 435. Chambers, a second year receiver from Markham, Ont. was able to pull in a ball from quarterback Evan Pawliuk (Kingston, Ont.). Pawliuk took the helm late in the fourth after Luke Thompson (London, Ont.) finished his day 11 of 21 for 71 yards and an interception. Pawliuk completed three including the touchdown and was picked off twice. Western took control early in the game and by the half was holding a 17-0 lead. Laurier’s defence saw over 33 minutes of playing time in the game and made some great plays as they restricted D’Shawn Thomas to only 57 rushing yards. Linebacker Giancarlo Rapanaro (Niagara Falls, Ont.) led the team with 2.5 sacks as well as nine tackles. Just behind him was safety Courtney Stephen (Brampton, Ont.) with 7.5 tackles. Linemen Stephen Cormack (Waterloo, Ont.) and Kyle Ardill (Mississauga, Ont.) also caused some trouble for the Western quarterbacks as they added three sacks and 6.5 tackles. “With a quarterback like Faulds, any small mistake you make they are able to take advantage of,” said Rapanaro post game. “They are a good football team but I know we are better than what we showed today.” Aaron Handsor’s 63-yard interception off of Pawliuk for a touch-

“Hawks trump Warriors 29-18” “Montoya rushes for over 200 yards in victory” by Mike Whitehouse

“We played hard, but I wanted that one, we all did,” said Nicholson .

WATERLOO, Ont. – Mike Montoya (Burlington, Ont.) rushed for 204 yards on 28 carries to lead the #9 Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks (2-1) to a 29-18 victory over the visiting Waterloo Warriors (0-3) in front of 3,401 fans at University Stadium. Montoya was named Laurier’s Ray Owen’s Memorial player of the game.

Other standouts for Waterloo were quarterback Luke Balch (London, Ont.) who went 15 for 32 and threw for 162 yards and Kyle Schertzer (Waterloo, Ont.) who had eight tackles (7 solo, 2 assisted). Balch also had 69 yards rushing in 14 attempts.

This is the seventh straight time the Golden Hawks have defeated the Warriors in the Battle of Waterloo.

Laurier is next in action on Saturday, September 26th at 1:00 p.m. when they travel to Hamilton to take on the McMaster Marauders.

The Hawks got off to a quick start, scoring their first touchdown just seven minutes into the game off a 54-yard reception from Alex Anthony (Victoria, B.C.). Quarterback Luke Thompson (London, Ont.) took a one yard plunge to give the home team a 7-0 lead. Chris Mamo (London, Ont.) followed that up with a 15-field goal to give the Hawks a 10-0 lead. The field goal was one of his three on the day with the longest being 32 yards. The three field goals moves Mamo into a tie for second place on Laurier’s career field goals list with 38. First place is held by Brian Devlin with 45. With the Hawks fresh off a ten nothing lead, the Warriors got on the board with a gadget play that saw a Sean Cowie (Dundas, Ont.) pass to Dustin Zender (Waterloo, Ont.) who went straight to the endzone. Laurier came back on the ensuing drive, and Mike Montoya punched in his fourth rushing major of the season. “My offensive line makes it easy, I don’t want to take the credit,” said a humble Montoya following the game. Late in the second quarter, quarterback Luke Thompson went down to injury and was taken off the field. “It was a really tough loss,” said Montoya. “He is my best friend and it’s always hard to watch one of your own get carried off the field.” Receiver Alex Anthony led all receivers with two catches for 81 yards. Dillon Heap (Waterloo, Ont.) picked up 68 yards on three receptions. Heap was also instrumental on punt returns racking up 117 yards on seven attempts.

“Heap Carries for 420 Yards in 30-14 Win” “Laurier downs Marauders for ninth consecutive time since 2003 ” by Ari Grossman

Rookie Alex Anthony (Victoria, BC) contributed a pair of majors in the contest including one where he fell on a Mike Montoya (Burlington, Ont.) fumble in the McMaster endzone. Montoya carried for 102 yards, which was his third game with over 100 yards.

HAMILTON – Third year receiver Dillon Heap had a stand out performance with 420 all-purpose yards as the #8 nationally ranked Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks (3-1) defeated the McMaster Marauders (2-2) in front of 3,129 fans at Les Prince Field.

Laurier however did not improve on one area that has been of focus – penalties. The team saw 13 calls for 160 yards while the Marauders were penalized nine times for 83 yards. “Penalties and not turning the ball over are two things that we need to work on,” commented Manager of Football Operations and head coach Jeffries when asked about next week against the Ottawa Gee Gee’s. “This is a good football team and we will only get better.”

The victory increases the Golden Hawk win streak to nine games over the Marauders including three post-season appearances over the last six years. Waterloo native Heap’s punt return yardage of 179 yards sets a new Laurier game record, breaking Geoff Keen’s 2002 mark of 134 yards. He is currently on pace towards the CIS record of punt return yardage in a season as he now holds 441 this season and the record sits at 777.

The Golden Hawk defence had another impressive performance as they held the Marauders to only 250 yards while Laurier netted 424. Linebacker Mitchell Bosch (Langley, BC) led the team with 5.5 tackles (five solo) and just behind him was the trio of rookie Nick Sapone (Richmond Hill, Ont.), Giancarlo Rapanaro (Niagara Falls, Ont.) and Stephen Cormack (Waterloo, Ont.) all had five.

“I had a couple of opportunities and made things happen by following my instincts,” commented Heap post game on his performance.

McMaster’s touchdown points came from a 27-yard interception return by Cody Lynch as well as a 75-yard punt return by Michael Dicroce.

Last week the third year business major sat in second place in the nation in all-purpose yards with 616, averaging 205/game behind Sherbrooke’s Pascal Fils. Included in Heap’s all-purpose yards are four receptions for 130 yards.

“I rushed the outside and they were a little tired and beaten and I was able to get there,” said Cormack when asked about his game high two sacks. “It was a good team effort overall as our defensive coverages are so sound that it gives me time to get to the quarterback.”

The game marked the first start for quarterback Evan Pawliuk (Kingston, Ont.). The third year quarterback completed 12 of 17 for 276 yards and two touchdowns including an 88-yard pass and run to Shamawd Chambers (Markham, Ont.). He also claimed one for himself on a one yard run.

Kicker Chris Mamo (London, Ont.) had a 39.7 punt average throughout the game on nine kicks while also adding three converts, putting him just one short of the Golden Hawk career record of 103 held by Brian Devlin from 2003 to 2005.

“Pawliuk and Heap both had tremendous performances today and I couldn’t be more proud of the efforts of everyone,” commented an elated Gary Jeffries post-game. “A wounded Hawk is a dangerous Hawk and despite the fact that we have good athletes on the sidelines, there are some good ones on the field.”

“I have to give credit to all the offences over the last five years,” said Mamo when asked about approaching the monumental mark. “Any record with a team of this caliber is an honour.”

A roughing the kicker call at around the four-minute mark of the third quarter was the initial move in momentum for the Hawks. Earlier in the game the team was having trouble moving the ball and as a result saw the defence on the field more than they had to be. Possession time by the midway mark of the contest was 18:06 for McMaster and 11:54 for Laurier while the score sat at 7-7.

The Golden Hawks (3-1) next host the Ottawa Gee Gee’s (2-2) at University Stadium in week five of OUA action. The game on October 3rd, marks the annual homecoming celebration for the Golden Hawks and the game will kick off at 1:00 p.m. live on The Score.

The touchdown pass to Chambers came after the unsportsmanlike penalty call and by the end of the quarter Laurier was up 23-7.

Dillon Heap (Waterloo, Ont.) again led all Golden Hawks in allpurpose yards with 274, including 112 in punt returns, 102 in receiving and 52 in kickoffs. His punt return yardage moves him up to 553 on the season, which is good for third place in the Laurier record books behind Corey Grant who has 616 and Paul Bennett who has 686. Heap already holds first place in kick-return yards in a season with 386.

WATERLOO, Ont. - The Ottawa Gee Gee’s (3-2) spoiled the Golden Hawks (3-2) homecoming game with a 27-25 win over the home team in front of 7,607 fans. The game was delayed at half-time due to a thunder and lightening storm.

“You have to give Ottawa some credit they made a lot of plays,” said Manager of Football Operations and head coach Gary Jeffries. “They are a very talented team.”

Laurier had an opportunity to tie the game after Mike Montoya (Burlington, Ont.) scored a one yard touchdown with five seconds left to play in the contest. On the ensuing PAT attempt, the Gee Gee’s incurred a pass interference call that brought the Hawks to the one yard line. Evan Pawliuk (Kingston, Ont.) kept the ball and took the plunge only to be called short to end Laurier’s come back attempt.

Ottawa quarterback Brad Sinopoli (Peterborough, Ont.) went 23-35, throwing for 341 yards and two touchdowns. The third year pivot also ran for another 97 yards and an additional major. Sinopoli’s favorite target was #5 Steven Hughes (Ottawa, Ont.) who collected 183 yards on seven receptions. He scored one touchdown and had a long of 68 yards.

On the Hawks final drive the purple and gold took the ball from on their own 45 with 1:38 minutes left and ran 12 plays for 65 yards and the score.

“Our offence stalled throughout the second and the defence was getting tired. It was really hard for us to get the momentum going,” commented Pawliuk. The Gee Gee’s held an advantage over the Hawks in time of possession, holding the ball for 35:34, while Laurier had it for 24:26.

“Ottawa had a good defence and it came down to the last second,” said Laurier quarterback Evan Pawliuk after the game. “That’s life and you have to deal with it but it shows the true character of the team when you can not get the ball much in the second half and still be there at the end of the game.”

Laurier’s top defenders were Mitchell Bosch (Langley, B.C.) with 7.5 tackles (6 solo, 3 assisted) and Courtney Stephen (Brampton, Ont.) with 6.5 (6 solo, 1 assisted). Giancarlo Rapanaro (Niagara Falls, Ont.) added another sack to his total, giving him 13.5 in his career. He needs 1.5 more to tie Yannick Carter for the record with 15. For the Gee Gee’s, Mike Cornell (Hamilton, Ont.) picked up nine tackles (7 solo, 4 assisted) and Tyler Sawyer (Metcalfe, Ont.) had 8.5 (7 solo, 3 assisted). Maxime Bedardm (Granby, Que.) was also a force for the visitors as he picked up a sack and an interception.

Pawliuk was 17 for 29 for 258 yards with one touchdown. He also rushed 14 times for 78 yards.

“The Hawks will have a good second half to the season and we’ll probably see them in the playoffs,” concluded coach Piche.

“Laurier is so athletic and they can hurt you in so many ways,” said Ottawa head coach Dennis Piche post game. “They are always well prepared and we knew this was going to be really hard.”

Laurier’s next game will be against the Windsor Lancers at University Stadium on Saturday, October 10th. The purple and gold will be inviting the Future Stars of the Game out to participate. Make sure you order your tickets online at www.laurierathletics. com

“Hawks take down Lancers 37-20” “33 point first half earns Laurier fourth win of the season” by Mike Whitehouse

“We still have the fumble problems that we have to take care of,” said Jeffries “There are a lot of things we have to get cleaned up.”

WATERLOO, Ont. – The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks (4-2) held on to defeat the Windsor Lancers (2-4) 37-20 after scoring 33 points in the first half of the contest.

Montoya was charged with two fumbles in the game, one coming on the one yard line.

“It was a great first half and a very poor second half,” commented Manager of Football Operations and Head Coach Gary Jeffries after the game. “We just lost focus.”

Laurier was also in penalty trouble with 15 penalties for 130 yards being called against the Hawks. “Penalties took the momentum away, but we aren’t going to put up with it, “ commented Jeffries. Quarterback Evan Pawliuk (Kingston, Ont.) had a solid outing going 12 for 17 for 202 yards and three touchdowns.

The Hawks jumped out to an early lead on receiving touchdowns from Alex Anthony (Victoria, B.C.) and Dillon Heap (Waterloo, Ont.). Laurier then picked up a safety after pinning the Lancers deep in their own zone. Chris Mamo (London, Ont.) hit a 40-yard field goal to give the home team a 19-0 advantage.

Dillon Heap led all players with 278 all-purpose yards including 110 receiving, 56 on kick returns, 41 rushing and 71 on punt returns. The third year wide out is now only 62 yards away from breaking Paul Bennett’s Laurier season record for punt returns set in 1976. Chris Mamo also hit a milestone by moving out of a tie with Brian Devlin in career converts to take over first place with 106. On the defensive side of the ball the Hawks were led Mitchell Bosch (Langley, B.C.) who had 6.5 (5 solo, 4 assisted) tackles and Courtney Stephen (Brampton, Ont.) who had six (5 solo, 2 assisted). Stephen also had two knockdowns in the game.

The purple and gold then made it 26-0 on a receiving touchdown from fullback Peter Quinney (Belleville, Ont.), with 12 seconds left in the first half. Quinney received the Chris Worden Memorial Award at the beginning of the game recognizing the fallen RCMP Hawk.

For the Lancers, Sam Malian (LaSalle, Ont.) led the way going 22 for 44 for 276 yards and two majors. He was also the Lancers leading rusher with 35 yards. His favorite target was Cory Fernandes (Mississauga, Ont.) who had five receptions for 71 yards.

The Hawks continued to dominate Windsor in the second half with a Mike Montoya (Burlington, Ont.) 49 yard rushing TD off a third down convert in which the running back flipped over the pile and kept going into the endzone. The touchdown was the sixth of the season for the running back.

The Windsor defence was led by John Celestino (Windsor, Ont.) who had 12 (9 solo, 6 assisted) tackles on the day. Seamus Postuma (Thunder Bay, Ont.) also had a solid outing with 7.5 (6 solo, 3 assisted) tackles and two sacks.

“We got beat pretty badly by their running game and that didn’t make us too happy, “said Windsor Head Coach Mike Morience.

“We got the win, but we’ll have to be better in Guelph,” concluded Gary Jeffries.

Laurier had 397 net yards rushing in the match with Montoya picking up 207 of them.

Next up, Laurier will travel to Guelph to take on the Gryphons on Saturday, October 17 at 1:00 p.m.

“We ran the ball with three different backs today and they did a good job, “ said Jeffries on the ground game.

ger as we know we can rebound from errors and mistakes.” “Heap claims CIS Record in 21-14 Win” “Defence contains Dunk to 76 yards of passing as Hawks down Gryphons” by Ari Grossman

Laurier’s defence saw a bit of a shuffle with Courtney Stephen (Brampton, Ont.) moving from free safety to linebacker and Giancarlo Rapanaro (Niagara Falls, Ont.) shifting to defensive back instead of linebacker.

GUELPH, Ont. – Dillon Heap claimed the Laurier, OUA and CIS records for punt returns in a season as the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks (5-2) defeated the Guelph Gryphons (3-4) 21-14 in a come from behind victory at Alumni Stadium in front of 1,300 fans.

“The defence had a plan and we were successful with it as we thought our athletes could cover their athletes we could just get him to stay back there,” commented Manager of football operations and head coach Gary Jeffries on the strategy to hold Dunk. “The three or four changes we made today, made us better and some of them just might stay.”

Heap a third year from Waterloo, Ont. hit the Laurier and OUA records on back to back plays midway through the first quarter before breaking through the CIS mark in the third. He finished the game with 202 yards on 10 returns making his season total 827. The previous Laurier mark was set by Paul Bennett in 1976 with 686, while the CIS mark was set by St. FX’s Richard Karikari in 2002 with 777.

Defensive end Daniel Bishop (Mississauga, Ont.) led the team in tackles with 7.5 (seven solo) as well as a sack while just behind him was Stephen with seven tackles (six solo) and a pair of sacks. Carlos Naranjo (Whitby, Ont.), Scott McCahill (Kingston, Ont.) and Rapanaro were the three Hawks that had picks off of Dunk.

“I didn’t really think about it as the game was going on,” commented Heap post-game about the historical marks. “It was a game of field position and my job [on special teams] was to move the ball as far as I could when they kicked it deep.” Guelph opened scoring in the contest as Mark Durigon picked up his first, of what would be three interceptions, off of Laurier quarterback Evan Pawliuk (Kingston, Ont.) and ran it back 111 yards for the major. Hawks kicker Chris Mamo (London, Ont.) nailed a 23-yard field goal towards the end of the quarter to bring the game to within four.

“Because of the offence we were expecting we wanted to make our defence just a little faster than it already was so we were shifted around,” commented Courtney Stephen post-game. “We were just all able to make plays today.”

The Gryphon offence put together a five play, 44-yard drive after a Pawliuk’s interception to get their unit’s only major of the game. Nick Fitzgibbon carried for 27 of those yards on route to his 129 yard performance. He was the only effective member of the offence as the Golden Hawk defence was able to contain quarterback Justin Dunk. The former third ranked quarterback (by yards) only completed 6 of 23 attempts for 76 yards as well as three interceptions.

Pawliuk finished the game 19 for 33 for 251 yards and led the team in rushing with nine carries for 68 yards and two majors. His top receiver was rookie Alex Anthony who had 95 yards on eight catches as well as the critical two-point convert. Chris Mamo punted nine times for 351 yards for an average of 39 yards a punt including two to within the Guelph red zone. Time of possession and penalties evened out by the end of the game with Laurier winning the first and fourth quarters in terms of time and both teams sitting with eight penalties for approx 50 yards.

The Golden Hawks had a stronger second half as they scored 18 while shutting down the Gryphon offence. The points came from another Chris Mamo 23-yard field goal as well as a touchdown from Pawliuk and a two-point convert where the quarterback found rookie Alex Anthony (Victoria, BC). Pawliuk later generalled a drive that saw the Hawks score another major.

“We made some errors but the guts and courage of these kids pushed us through,” said an elated Gary Jeffries post-game.

“ We were just off that little bit in the first bit but in the second half it was a team effort and team’s win football games” stated quarterback Evan Pawliuk when asked about the stronger second half. “Because of games like today it’ll make us that much stron-

Brannagan was 25 for 45 finishing with 289 yards and no touchdowns in the game.

“Hawks upset #2 ranked Gaels 25-13” “Laurier finishes season 6-2, in second place in the OUA” by Mike Whitehouse

“Coming into the game and we were ready on defence,” said Scott Mccahill (Kingston, Ont.) who picked off Brannagan for a game changing 110 yard interception return for a touchdown. “We made some adjustments in the game during the second half and they worked.”

WATERLOO, Ont. – The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks (6-2) defeated the no.2 nationally ranked Queen’s Gaels (7-1) 25-13 to finish in second place in the OUA and earn a first round bye in the provincial playoffs.

The 110 yard interception return tied the third longest in OUA history.

Laurier took the lead from the opening kickoff with a single by Chris Mamo (London, Ont.). It would be the first of 13 points for the kicker/punter who set the Laurier career scoring record with 270 points. Mamo hit three field goals, two converts and had another single to move past former teammate Brian Devlin who had previously held the scoring title with 261 points.

The Golden Hawk’s defence was led by safety Courtney Stephen who had 6.5 tackles (5 solo, 3 assisted) in the game. Giancarlo Rapanaro and Mitchell Bosch also had strong performances each with five tackles apiece. In total the Laurier defenders knocked down seven Brannagan pass attempts.

In addition Mamo’s three field goals were from 45, 37 and 33 yards. The 45 yarder is the longest field goal he has hit in his career at Laurier.

The Gaels defence was led by Shomari Williams (Brampton, Ont.) who had a nine solo tackle effort and a half sack. Osie Ukwuoma (Mississauga, Ont.) also contributed 1.5 sacks.

After the opening kickoff the Hawks’ defence stepped with a Giancarlo Rapanaro (Niagra Falls, Ont.) interception on Queen’s Danny Brannagan. Laurier then marched down the field and quarterback Evan Pawliuk (Kingston, Ont.) connected with Shamawd Chambers (Markham, Ont.) on a 44-yard reception for the home team’s first touchdown.

“We have some nice momentum certainly, but our goal was to get the bye and we got it,” concluded Jeffries. Laurier will now have a bye week before they host the OUA semifinal at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 7th at University Stadium. For more information on the game stay tuned to www. laurierathletics.com

Pawliuk was 20 for 30 on the day for 273 yards and one major. “I took what they gave me, but they have a very good defence,” said Pawiuk following his best performance of the season. “We were focused on our goal, which was to get more points than they did.” “Pawliuk showed us last week after four interceptions he was mentally tough when he helmed our team to the win,” said Manager of Football Operations and head coach Gary Jeffries. “Our game plan this week was to get some pressure on Brannagan and not give him much time.” In the race for the CIS all-time passing record, quarterback Danny Brannagan of Burlington, Ont., fell just shy of the all-time mark finishing second to Western’s Michael Faulds who threw for 550yards against Toronto. Brannagan finishes his career No. 2 on the all-time list with 10,714 while Faulds first at 10,811. For a short-time, Brannagan held the all-time mark surpassing Matt Connell (McGill) on a 23-yard pass to Scott Valberg of Kingston, Ont., late in the second quarter. Starting the game, Brannagan needed only 31-yards to pass Connell’s career mark of 10,455.

“Hawks open 2008 with 15-13 Victory” “Hawks come out on top in turnover filled game” by Ari Grossman

“Our offence needed a hand and we did what we usually do at Laurier, play some strong defence,” said a tired Rapanaro after the game.

WATERLOO – The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks opened the 2008 football campaign with a 15-13 win over the Guelph Gryphons in front of a crowd of 2,697 at Knight-Newbrough Field.

Chima Ihekwoaba (Burlington, Ont.) was the only one to bring a quarterback down, sacking Dunk and moving the ball back nine yards.

Late in the fourth quarter, Guelph kicker Rob Maver had an opportunity to take the victory but was wide to the left on a 28 yard field goal picking up only a single instead. Maver put the only points on the board for the Gryphons nailing three of five field goals including a 36 yarder.

“Errors are going to happen in week one and they did on both sides and although we recovered this time,” said Manager of Football Operations and Head Coach Gary Jeffries when asked about turnovers today. “Execution both physically and mentally will need to get better for us to play next week against Western.”

Third year receiver Jeff Emberley’s (Oakville, Ont.) third quarter 42-yard touchdown catch from quarterback Ian Noble (West Vancouver, B.C.) was the game winner in the contest. The touchdown was his first in the purple and gold uniform. Laurier’s other touchdown came early on as rookie linebacker Mitchell Bosch (Langley, B.C.) picked off Justin Dunk and carried the ball back 57 yards for the major.

The Golden Hawks next compete against the Western Mustangs on Saturday, September 6th at 7:00 p.m. Tickets for the contest are available on Laurier’s website www.laurierathletics.com

The game was riddled with nine turnovers including three interceptions thrown by Noble and two fumbles by the Hawks. “There are a lot of throws I’d like to have back today,” said Noble referring to the picks by Savoie and Riley. “Our guys did a good job today and more importantly we came out with the win over Guelph.” Justin Dunk completed 14 of 29 pass attempts on the day including one for 39 yards. Guelph’s offence netted 355 yards in the contest, more than the Hawks’ 299. Gryphon running back Nick Fitzgibbon was the only person to carry for over 100 yards for either team netting 111 over 23 grabs. Laurier back Ryan Lynch put up 50 yards. The Golden Hawk defence stopped Guelph in the red zone all four times. Giancarlo Rapanaro (Niagara Falls, Ont.) and Luke

“Western downs Hawks 31-20” “Mustangs have strong second half to defeat Laurier” by Mike Whitehouse

The play capped off an impressive drive for Wilfrid Laurier that started deep in their own territory.

WATERLOO - The trend continued for the number five nationally ranked Western Mustangs as they recovered from a ten-point first quarter deficit to defeat the number six ranked Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks 31-20 at Knight-Newbrough Field, University Stadium in front of 6,432 fans.

After a 27-yard Chris Mamo (London, Ont.) field goal that gave Laurier the 10-0 lead in the first quarter, Western began to put some plays together.

In the first half, Wilfrid Laurier opened up a 10-0 lead in a dominating the first quarter of play. Luke Thompson (London, Ont.) saw the helm of the offence after Ian Noble (West Vancouver, B.C.) injured himself earlier in the week. In his first go he completed 21 of 39 for 279 yards and rushed for 70 yards. He converted on a second and ten early in the game to pick up one of Laurier’s touchdowns to make the score 7-0.

The ‘Stangs turnaround began with a great set of defensive stances in the second quarter. Then some strong running from backup running back John Leckie (Georgetown, Ont.) and timely big plays from receivers Nick Trevail (London, Ont.) and Jesse Bellamy (Guelph, Ont.) gave Western life. Michael Faulds led Western to 272 yards in the air while the ground attack saw John Leckie carry for 108 yards and two majors.

“For his first performance starting he did well,” commented Manager of Football Operations and Head Coach Gary Jeffries

The Mustangs first points came after the defence forced the Golden Hawks to concede a safety on a third down, deep in their own zone. Mike Van Praet was a menace on defence recording a sack and forcing several quick throws from Thompson while John Surla, last week’s OUA male athlete of the week, was solid again with key tackles. On the Golden Hawk side, Mitchell Bosch (Langley, B.C.) had a second solid week picking up five tackles. Veteran Joe Labenski (Welland, Ont.) returned to the line-up this week and made himself known taking down Faulds. Chima Ihekwoaba (Burlington, Ont.), Sam Aird (Ancaster, Ont.) and Giancarlo Rapanaro (Niagara Falls, Ont.) all picked up sacks as well. Troy Leach (Barrie, Ont) scored the other Laurier touchdown on a catch from Thompson with just over three minutes left to pull Laurier within 11 but it was too late as Western held on for the win, 31-20. The Golden Hawks now travel to Kingston to face the Queen’s Gaels at Richardson Stadium. Game time is set for 1:00 p.m. and will be broadcast on Cogeco on tape delay. The following week will have the Golden Hawks returning to Knight-Newbrough Field, University Stadium to host the Windsor Lancers as part of homecoming weekend celebrations.

“We couldn’t stop them right away and the offence got a lot of two-and-outs today,” commented veteran linebacker Luke Pinder (Kitchener, Ont.) who returned to the lineup after sitting a week due to injury. “They took what [yardage] was available and use formations to beat us.” Pinder picked up 6.5 tackles (5 solo) as well as two breakups.

KINGSTON – The number 10 nationally ranked Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks were devastated with a 41-7 loss in Kingston when they faced the number five Queen’s Gaels in front of 4,127 fans at Richardson Stadium. The loss makes the team record 1-2 and puts the Hawks with a losing record for the first time since 2002.

Rookie defensive back Peter Mcdougall (Oshawa, Ont.) picked up two of the other interceptions while Mitchell Bosch (Langley, B.C.) got the final one.

“We opened up with a hard schedule and three competitive teams,” said manager of football operations and head coach Gary Jeffries when asked to comment on the record. “We’re in the meat of the schedule and we’ll learn from today’s performance as we look to next weekend’s homecoming game.”

Chris Mamo (London, Ont.) had another strong punting performance kicking an average of 41.7 yards over 15 times including three into the red zone. The fourth year punter, along with some great return coverage played a significant role in the battle for field position today.

Dan Brannagan (Burlington, Ont.) led the Gaels to a net offence of 639 yards including 438 over his 22 completions in the contest. Brannagan threw five interceptions including one returned by Courtney Stephen (Brampton, Ont.) 37 yards eventually leading to Laurier’s only touchdown of the day.

The Golden Hawks return home for week four action to host the Windsor Lancers at 1:00 p.m. at University Stadium. The events are apart of homecoming weekend 2008. Tickets for the game are available online at laurierathletics.com Note for this week, the tailgate area requires a premium ticket which is available online as well as at the door. Gates open at 11:00 a.m.

Ian Noble (West Vancouver, B.C.) started for the purple-and-gold and completed 2 of 5 before seeing Luke Thompson (London, Ont.) step in and connect once for a 43-yard touchdown pass to Shamawd Chambers (Markham, Ont.). The pair finished off the day with a combined 11 completions on 24 attempts for 121 yards. Noble and Thompson were on the ground and hurried all day as five Gaels added up nine sacks including Dee Sterling who had 5.5 as well as eight tackles (6 solo) and Osie Ukwuoma who had 1.5. The Golden Hawk offence didn’t move the ball many yards as the team netted 60 yards. Of the 25 drives in the contest, a total of five were for offensive yardage greater than 10 yards. Running back Ryan Lynch (Waterloo, Ont.) was held to 31 yards and along with Noble made up the 41 yards on the ground. “We need to look at the film to find the breakdowns and see why what we did didn’t work today,” said Jeffries when asked about the lack of offence. “We have to be able to move the football in order to win games.” Laurier held Mike Giffin, last season’s OUA leading rusher to just over a hundred yards including a major. The Laurier defence, who were on the field for 33 minutes saw twenty-five athletes

“Hawks tumble Lancers in Homecoming romp” “Thompson passes for 302 yards and two TD’s” by Mike Whitehouse

The turning point of the game came when Laurier was down 15-8 with 1:31 before the half and Luke Thompson engineered a 12 play-drive into the end-zone. The final two plays were a 21-yard reception to Chambers and a 29-yard catch for Bishop and the score to tie up the game.

WATERLOO – The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks compiled 481 yards of offence against the visiting Windsor Lancers defeating them 33-18 in front of a boisterous Homecoming crowd of 8,249 at University Stadium.

In the second half, the Golden Hawks continued to march the ball up field scoring twice on runs by Chambers and Ryan Lynch (Waterloo, Ont.). Then the Laurier defence stepped up and shut down the Lancers passing game.

“We executed on our plan, and that was a huge key for us,” said Manager of Football Operations and Head Coach Gary Jeffries. “We moved the ball on offence today and got the stops we need to on defence.”

Next up, Windsor (2-2) will host the No. 5 Ottawa Gee Gee (3-1) on Saturday. Laurier (2-2) will travel the University of Waterloo (1-3) to take on the Warriors.

Luke Thompson (London, Ont.) threw for 302 yards and two touchdowns as well as running for another 47 yards. His primary targets were Josh Bishop (Mississauga, Ont.) and Shamawd Chambers (Markham, Ont.) who had 132 yards and 76 yards respectively as well as a touchdown a piece. Chambers also ran for 23 yards and a TD. CIS record holder Daryl Stephenson (London, Ont.) was held to 61 yards on ten attempts by a stingy Hawk rush defence which only gave up 81 total yards on the ground. The Lancers attacked the Hawks secondary, with Jordan Brescacain (Tecumseh, Ont.) racking up 104 yards on four catches, including one 50 yard reception. Windsor threw for a total of 262

Earlier in the contest Troy Leach (Barrie, Ont.) caught two touchdown receptions within one-minute. Just before the quarterbreak, he had a 34-yard reception, and after, a 42-yard catch to start the second after Giancarlo Rapanaro (Niagara Falls, Ont.) picked up one of his two interceptions of the day. Shane Burns (Burlington, Ont.) had the other off of Warrior quarterback Evan Martin. Burns also led the team with seven tackles (six solo) on the day.

“Hawks take Battle of Waterloo 38-23” “Laurier finished on top despite 14 penalties for 145 yards” by Ari Grossman WATERLOO – Quarterback Luke Thompson of London, Ont. connected for 357 yards as the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks defeated the University of Waterloo Warriors 38-23 in front of a Waterloo homecoming crowd of 2,200 at Warrior Field.

Martin moved the ball for 318 yards over 23 completions and was sacked three times by Steve Cormack (Waterloo, Ont.), Spencer Troop (Georgetown, Ont.) and Joe Labeski (Welland, Ont.). Marvin McCoory led the black and gold on the ground with 77 yards and a major.

“There were so many times today when I threw [the ball] up there and they weren’t the prettiest balls today but our receivers came through and made the play,” commented Thompson on his overall performance. “The strength of our offence is our receivers and we’ve got to continue to get the ball to them and they will continue to make great plays.”

After going up early in the contest 14-2, the Hawks weren’t able to get back the momentum they needed, getting caught deep in their own zone and conceding multiple safeties.

Thompson found three different receivers before scoring a touchdown of his own on the ground. The second year pivot connected 17 of 26 attempts including four touchdowns and a 57 yard reception in the wet penalty filled contest. In total 24 penalties for 208 yards were assessed to both teams with the Hawks picking up the majority at 14 for 145.

“They had a couple of plays on us and stuck it in the end zone and we didn’t help with some of the errors we made,” stated Jeffries. “They were successful in stopping our momentum multiple times, however in the fourth our guys made some key plays.”

“We’re very fortunate to come out of [Warrior Field] with the win,” said Manager of Football Operations and Head Coach Gary Jeffries. “Full credit to the Waterloo coaches and players for the game they played today. We’ve got a lot of talent but we aren’t playing to that level right now - we’re going to. I’m happy we got the win, but disappointed at the way we played.”

Laurier’s kicking game saw Chris Mamo (London, Ont.) have 11 kickoffs as a result of all the safeties. Mamo also hit the uprights twice in the contest on field goal attempts, with only one of the two falling between for the points. Ryan Lynch (Waterloo, Ont.) was just short of 100 yards on the day as he carried the ball 17 times for 83 yards including a 30-yard carry late in the game. Josh Bishop (Mississauga, Ont.) had the final seven-point grab on a 30-yard pass.

Shamawd Chambers (Markham, Ont.) named Laurier’s Ray Owens memorial player of the game, led the offence with 119 yards in receptions including a 37-yard touchdown reception. Chambers leads the team in both receptions and touchdowns with 27 and four on the season.

“Today was like two steps forward and one back,” said Thompson on the penalty situation. “If we can limit that we’ll be fine next week in Ottawa.”

“Waterloo came hard at us today like we expected, with their homecoming and their fans,” said Chambers post-game. When asked about the penalties, including an unnecessary roughness that he was assessed, he showed a little more disappointment in the tone of his voice stating that “At the end of the day the penalties shouldn’t happen, but they did, and we’ll have to work on them in order to become a more disciplined team.”

The Golden Hawks (3-2) now travel to the nation’s capital to face the Ottawa Gee Gee’s (3-2) on October 4th. Kickoff for the contest to be aired live on The Score Television Network is 12:37 p.m. Laurier will return to host the McMaster Marauders on October 11th at University Stadium with a 1:07 p.m. kickoff.

“Hawks defeat Gee Gees in Ottawa” “Laurier upsets #7 ranked Gee Gees with 22-21 victory” by Ari Grossman

Laurier running back Ryan Lynch (Waterloo, Ont.) carried the ball 12 times for 86 yards. Mike Montoya (Burlington, Ont.) returned to the lineup with 24 yards over four rushes.

OTTAWA – The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks scored 17 points in the second and third quarters to upset the number 7 nationally ranked University of Ottawa Gee Gee’s 22-21 in front of 1,590 fans at Frank Clair Stadium.

“Luke made a great play he scrambled out and found me down field,” commented Leach on the key catch post-game. “Thank goodness I caught it and finished it off.”

The win ends an eight game win streak at home for Ottawa who the Golden Hawks haven’t been able to defeat since back in 2005, the year Laurier went undefeated and won the Vanier Cup.

Mitchell Bosch (Langley, B.C.) led the team in tackles on the day with seven tackles (six solo) and now leads the team overall with 28. Bosch and Shane Burns (Burlington, Ont.) both forced fumbles on the day while Giancarlo Rapanaro (Niagara Falls, Ont.) picked one up as well as had 3.5 tackles on the day. Sacobie was sacked once for a loss of 11 yards by George Kourtesiotis (Toronto, Ont.) and Joe Labenski (Welland, Ont.).

“We came in here and looked at this as a chance to get a home playoff game,” said an excited head coach Gary Jeffries after the game when asked about the significance of beating Ottawa. “Today is the first time in six games that we played as a full football team. We became a team and played all three aspects of the game.”

“We’re going to have to bring a better game than we did today next week to our house as we know McMaster is a dangerous team and we’re expecting their best,” said Leach when asked about week seven action.

Quarterback Luke Thompson (London, Ont.) completed seven of 20 passes on the day for 137 yards and two touchdowns including a 75 yard touchdown catch by Troy Leach (Barrie, Ont.). The pass to Leach came as Thompson was being faced with pressure and was almost sacked. The second year quarterback opened the day with a pair of interceptions as his only completions, but was able to rebound. In addition to the passing, Thompson led the team in rushing with 97 yards.

The Golden Hawks (4-2) return home next week to host the McMaster Marauders (3-3) at Knight-Newbrough Field, University Stadium at 1:00 p.m. The game will be broadcast locally on Rogers Television in Grand River.

“We came out sluggish and coach challenged us to come together at half,” commented Thompson on the 124 yards of offence in the first half. “The team made it happen and it feels great to come out of here with the win.” Leach’s 75-yard catch made him the top receiver of the day. Third year receiver Josh Bishop (Mississauga, Ont.) was just behind him with 46 yards including a major of his own on a 26-yard catch. The Golden Hawk offence finished the day with 313 yards while Ottawa had 275. Ottawa opened scoring after conceding a safety early in the contest. Sacobie connected with Gharone McLean and Justin Wood-Roy for two majors within five minutes in the second to put the garnet and grey up 14-2. Laurier closed the gap with the Bishop’s touchdown. At the half, Ottawa had netted 183 yards with 120 in the air.

His other two receiving sevenpoint scores went to Shamawd Chambers (Markham, Ont.) and Troy Leach (Barrie, Ont.). The Golden Hawk quarterback also rushed for 76 yards in nine attempts and two touchdowns.

His top target was Kevin D’Hollander who caught 12 receptions for 199 yards and two scores. McMaster scored all of their majors through the air. The game went back and forth until the beginning of the third quarter when the Hawks broke open the game by scoring 21 points. McMaster attempted to surge in the fourth, but Laurier capitalized on turnovers to negate the Marauders advantage. Both teams were stymied on the ground with Laurier toping McMaster gaining 134 yards versus the Marauders 74. Top defensive Hawks were Shane Burns (Burlington, Ont.)

B.J. Malott (Kitchener, Ont.), Shamawd Chambers (Markham, Ont.), Josh Bishop (Mississauga, Ont.), Troy Leach (Barrie, Ont.) and Travis Vaughan (Almonte, Ont.) were the recipients of the passes while linebacker Daniel Bishop (Mississauga, Ont.) returned an attempted punt 40 yards into the end zone.

“Hawks down Lions 50-13” “Many faces see field as Hawks prepare for playoff action” by Ari Grossman TORONTO - The #10 Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks easily handed the winless York Lions a 50-13 defeat at York Stadium in front of a crowd largely made up of purple-and-gold fans.

The Golden Hawks opened scoring five minutes into the contest on a 45-yard pass to Malott and didn’t look back from there.

In what was the only meaningless game in week eight of provincial football action, the Hawks saw 115 yards of penalties over 14 calls. York had nine for 105 yards.

Kicker Chris Mamo of London, Ont. had another strong performance punting four times for 197 yards including a 60-yard boot. He converted all six converts as well as nailed both 35 and 37 field goals.

“We’ll clean up the penalties as we go,” commented quarterback Luke Thompson of London, Ont. “Today’s performance is nothing we can’t fix and the real season starts now.”

“I’ve worked hard all season to improve my punting performance,” commented Mamo on the average of 41.3 he has had all season. Mamo now sits third all-time in the record books in punting yardage in a career with 2,718 yards. He’s second in number of punts in a career with 213.

In other contests across the OUA, McMaster, Ottawa, Western and Queen’s won their final games setting up playoff action. Laurier (6-2) will return to Waterloo to host the McMaster Marauders (4-4) in the OUA quarterfinals on Saturday, October 25th at University Stadium in Waterloo with a 1:07 p.m. kickoff while the other quarterfinal will see Ottawa travel to Guelph on the Score Television network.

The defensive game saw York accumulate 234 yards to Laurier’s 519. Scott McCahill (Kingston, Ont.) led the team with five solo tackles. Courtney Stephen (Brampton, Ont.) had an interception off of York veteran quarterback Bart Zemanek who finished his career with a 14 for 34 and 183-yard performance.

York broke two OUA records today with the completion of their winless regular season having the most points scored against them in a season (471) and fewest points scored in a season (32).

“There are some young guys playing some great football today but there is still an experience factor that comes in CIS football,” said linebacker Luke Bendus (Cambridge, Ont.) when asked about the new faces in the week eight lineup. Bendus was injured in week one with a concussion that saw him sit for several weeks but is now seeing time both as part of the defence and special teams. “I’m happy with my performance but it has taken me a bit to get back to where I was before the injury.”

The win ended the Golden Hawk record at 6-2 after opening the year with a win and then two losses. “We’re pleased to be where we are at 6-2,” commented Gary Jeffries post-game. “The start of the year we expected a similar record as a result of the schedule we had and now we’ll have to get better and prepare for next week.”

“McMaster put up a lot of yardage against us last week in Waterloo,” commented Coach Jeffries on seeing the Marauders in the first round of the playoffs. “We are going to have to do a better job against them defensively.”

Five of the six touchdown markers in the contest were thrown in the air. Thompson completed 10 of 17 for 185 yards and three majors in the first half of play before Ian Noble (West Vancouver, B.C.) relieved him with 198 yards and two additional touchdowns. “We’re a throwing football team,” commented Jeffries when asked about the rushing yardage of 137 in the contest. “We’d like to run a bit more but we use the athletes we’ve got and make the plays however we need to.”

Mitchell Bosch (Langley, B.C.) led the team with eight tackles (six solo, four assisted) and a fumble recovery, followed by Peter Mcdougall (Oshawa, Ont.) with seven (five solo, two assisted), Dustin Hayman (Toronto, Ont.) with six (six solo).

WATERLOO – Ryan Lynch rushed for 229 yards as the #8 nationally ranked Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks shutout the McMaster Marauders 29-0 in one of the provincial quarter-finals in front of 1,404 fans on a damp wind blown day.

The Marauders were led on defence by Denver Brown with six (four solo, four assisted) followed by Elliot Hudecki who had 5.5 tackles (five solo, one assisted). Mike Wysocki was also a standout with 5.5 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble and one knockdown.

“We were outplayed and out coached, ”said McMaster head coach Stefan Ptasek. “Coach VanMoerkerke did an excellent job with his defence today.”

The Golden Hawks will now advance to the OUA Semifinal against the University of Western Ontario Mustangs in London. The game will take place on Saturday, November 1st at 1:00 p.m. at TD Waterhouse Stadium.

McMaster was held to 259 yards of offence and had five turnovers. Laurier recovered both their fumbles and had 378 yards with 343 of those on the ground. “We really came together and played well,” said Lynch (Waterloo, Ont.) who led the contest rushing. “The credit really goes to our offensive line as they made some amazing blocks for me.” Both Laurier touchdowns in the game came through the air as both Shamawd Chambers (Markham, Ont.) and Brian Malott (Kitchener, Ont.) scored the majors for the purple and gold. Chris Mamo also went three for five while kicking field goals. His longest was from 38 yards away. Quarterback Luke Thompson (London, Ont.) had a modest day completing 10 of 15 for 69 yards and two scores. Chambers was the only receiver to record more than one catch for Laurier with five for 31 yards. McMaster’s only chance to score was on a 45-yard field goal attempt which ende up hitting the uprights. Marauder quarterback Ryan Fantham went 14 for 25 for 165 yards with three interceptions. His number one target was Kevin D’Hollander who caught seven passes for 104 yards in the loss. The Laurier defence stood strong in the game recovering four fumbles and nabbing three interceptions. “Coach V really challenged us to play better after the last game against McMaster, ” said corner back Taurean Allen (Etobicoke, Ont.) who pulled down one of the Hawks picks. “We’re really

Up 33-7, Laurier began to close the gap but ran out of time. Returner Dillon Heap (Waterloo, Ont.) had an impressive 94-yard carry to move the ball back a+fter the second Western major but things just didn’t work out as Western was able to punch the ball loose later on a punt return with two-minutes remaining to eventually get three points.

“Mustangs end Hawks season 36-28” “Hawks run out of time in second half 25-point rally“ by Ari Grossman LONDON – The No. 7 nationally ranked Laurier Golden Hawks generated a 25 point second half but fell short, losing to the No. 3 Western Mustangs 36-28 at TD Waterhouse Stadium in front of a crowd of 3,307. “This football team will never quit; the people outside this program can write us off as much as they want and we weren’t supposed to be here but we were and we competed,” said Manager of Football Operations and head coach Gary Jeffries. “This game is another experience that we will learn from and we’ll grow and be back here next year.”

The Laurier defence played a strong game, despite seeing a lot of field time. Defensive lineman Steve Cormack (Waterloo, Ont.) had three sacks on Faulds while adding a recovery of one of Western’s three fumbles and a pair of tackles. Defensive back Dustin Hayman (Toronto, Ont.) led the team in tackles with eight (six solo).

With five minutes and 19 seconds remaining in the third quarter Ian Noble (West Vancouver, B.C.) stepped in for starting quarterback Luke Thompson (London, Ont.) and generated some momentum to move the ball. Thompson had seen pressure from the Western front seven and saw trouble throwing five interceptions on top of his six completions for 62 yards. “We played our hearts out,” said Noble who completed 11 of 16 for 146 yards and three touchdowns. “No one is satisfied with the way it went but we didn’t roll over and surrender – we did what we practiced and pushed as hard as we could.”

“Today’s game was tiring, but we talked about coming out in the second half with everything we had and things started clicking,” commented Cormack. “This wasn’t even supposed to be a game – we were underdogs and we gave them all we had. It can only be positive from here.”

The veteran quarterback who hasn’t played since York in week eight led three drives that saw scoring opportunities throwing touchdown passes to B.J. Malott (Kitchener, Ont.) and Shamawd Chambers (Markham, Ont.). Thompson completed his touchdown to Josh Bishop (Mississauga, Ont.).

The game ends the careers of Golden Hawk veterans Jordan Van Horn, Kyle Somerville, Adam Bestard, Ian Noble, Luke Pinder, Scott Evans, Ryan Lynch, Troy Leach, Joe Labenski, Jordan Schaus, Paul Hancock, Wayne Brock, Casey Potter and Jeremy Chemij.

Running back Ryan Lynch (Waterloo, Ont.) led the team’s rushing game with his 12 touches for 56 yards. Thompson was just behind him as the only other rusher with 36 net yards on five carries.

“I’m proud to be apart of this program and have had some part of an impact on the younger faces,” said veteran linebacker Luke Pinder. “The maturity the rookies is just so impressive – who would have thought we would be dressing and starting so many in this program.”

Early on Western was only able to score off of field goals by Darryl Wheeler. The kicker nailed four in the first half including one from 38 yards before running back Nathan Riva picked up the first Mustang major at the six-minute mark of the third. Riva went on to cause havoc with the Golden Hawk defence carrying the ball 28 times for 173 yards including a touchdown while quarterback Michael Faulds threw for 355 yards on 20 completions.

While the group of veterans move on from the football program, a strong group of rookies have come on board and will make their presence known in years to come.

The Mitchell Bowl was first awarded in 2002, replacing the Atlantic Bowl, after the CIS voted in 2001 to change the permanent site of the Atlantic Bowl in the interest of competitive fairness. During that year, the Mitchell Bowl played opposite to that of the Churchill Bowl. However, with the introduction of the Uteck Bowl in 2003, the Mitchell Bowl replaced and assumed the history of the Churchill Bowl.

WILFRID LAURIER UNIVERSITY

HISTORY OF WILFRID LAURIER UNIVERSITY In 1910 the Canada Synod and Synod of Central Canada of the Lutheran Church entered into an agreement to establish a Lutheran Seminary. Though the location first proposed for the Seminary was Toronto, Waterloo was selected when its citizens offered a tract of land on the boundary of the town. The choice of location was affected, too, by the fact that the majority of Lutherans in Ontario lived in the vicinity of Waterloo and Berlin (Kitchener). In 1911 the Evangelical Lutheran Seminary of Canada opened its doors. Facilities for pre-theological education were established in 1914 with courses leading to senior matriculation given in Waterloo College School. In 1924 the Waterloo College of Arts, providing courses in post-secondary education in a four year program, was established. In 1925 the Faculty of Arts, under the name of Waterloo College, affiliated with the University of Western Ontario. Waterloo College soon began to offer Honours degree programs in the arts. The affiliation with the University of Western Ontario ended in 1960 when the Seminary obtained a revised charter changing the name of the institution to Waterloo Lutheran University. On November 1, 1973, Waterloo Lutheran University became Wilfrid Laurier University, one of Ontario’s provincially assisted universities after Bill 178 was given Royal Assent by the Lieutenant Governor, former Wilfrid Laurier University Chancellor William Ross Macdonald.
