The Brock men’s hockey team dropped a 5-4 decision in a shootout on Friday to the Laurier Golden Hawks after falling down 3-0 after the first period. Brock now sits in seventh place in the OUA west standings — ahead of only Windsor, Toronto and Western — with a 3-4-3 record. The Badgers are now 0-6 on the road in OUA play this season, but will start a six game homestand this Friday — which will extend to the final game of the 2017 portion of their schedule — hosting Laurier (second in the OUA west) and Guelph (fourth in the OUA west) this weekend. The rematch between Brock and Laurier on Friday will feature a matchup between two of the top goalies in the OUA — Clint Windsor continues to lead the OUA in saves (330), and Laurier goaltender Chris Festarini is in second place in both goals against average (GAA) with 1.74, and in save percentage (.946).

The Marauders are 4-1 in conference play, and beat the Ohio State Buckeyes twice in exhibition games (who last season, won the NCAA division one national championship).
