Men’s soccer survives battle

Trevor Schein wrapped an ice pack around his knee and soldiered on to the dressing room. And even with the Hawk’s clipped talon, the defender could claim to be in better health than most of his soccer brethren, who barely escaped their tilt with the McMaster Marauders. An amazing accomplishment considering Schein was the unwilling participant in the majority of […]

Men’s soccer looks to finish season strong

A largely unexpected rousing and spirited start to the season by Wilfrid Laurier’s men’s soccer squad makes this cruel twist of fate even harder to stomach. Jarrett Humphreys, the Golden Hawks’ starting netminder was sidelined indefinitely by his third concussion in a year from a game versus the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) Ridgebacks in late September.

Laurier men’s soccer unbeaten in three

Hugo Hernandez’s name didn’t show up on the score-sheet in Saturday’s 3-0 Golden Hawk victory versus the Brock Badgers, but without him, the men’s soccer team’s offence would have never been resuscitated after going three games without a goal.

Soccer star returns to WLU

If the Wilfrid Laurier women’s soccer foes weren’t already quivering in their cleats before facing the 5-0 Golden Hawks, this news should send them scampering back home before the coin toss.

Behind the Hawk: Amanda Mithrush

Laurier’s women’s soccer team is off to an incredible start this season, as they have yet to lose a match in five games. One of the main reasons for the team’s remarkable success this season is first-year sniper Amanda Mithrush. But be sure not to call the kinesiology major a phenom. “That is too big a title,” said the humble […]
