Lancer hockey teams prepare for playoff face-offs

The Lancer men’s and women’s hockey teams open their post-seasons this week in quarterfinal series against the York Lions and Queen’s Gaels, respectively.

The men travel to Toronto tonight for the first game in the three-game series and will conclude at Windsor Arena, with game two at 7:30 p.m. Friday and game three, if necessary, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

The women open a best-of-three at South Windsor Arena on Thursday at 7:10 p.m. The series moves to Kingston for games two and three.

Admission for Lancer hockey playoff games is $8 general admission; $5 for youths, students and seniors.

Basketball squads to honour graduating players

The first-place Lancer basketball teams will pay tribute to their graduating seniors on Wednesday night when they play host to their rivals, the Western Mustangs, at the St. Denis Centre.

The women will honour four graduating seniors in a ceremony before their 6 p.m. tip-off, including fifth-year standouts Bojana Kovacevic and Laura Mullins, and fourth-year veterans Jessica Gordon and Bethanie Wachna.

The men will honour graduating senior Michael Godfrey before their 8 p.m. start.

These will be the final regular-season home games for the Lancers; both teams will get a bye through the divisional quarterfinals and will host Ontario University Athletics West semifinals on Saturday, February 23, at the St. Denis Centre.
