Lancers lose Queen’s Cup heartbreaker

There is pride in winning silver but the Windsor Lancers we’re hoping for gold in the 111th edition of the Queen’s Cup. Windsor took the defending OUA champion UQTR Patriots to triple overtime before falling 3-2 In a thriller at the Capri Pizzeria Recreation Complex.

David Noel and Louis-Filip Cote tallied for UQTR while Matt McNamara and Nolan Gardiner scored for the Lancers, all in the first period. It stayed tied until early in the 6th period. Windsor netminder Nathan Torchia was stellar making 56 saves but an unfortunate bounce off the backboard caromed off his pad into the net 38 seconds in giving the visitors their second straight OUA title.

Both teams are going to nationals in Charlotte Town PEI this week. Windsor heads into the tournament as the 4-seed and will face the Alberta Golden Bears Friday at noon AT.

Check out the thrilling action in this video shot by Powerplay’s Anthony Scalzo.
