Arden Zwelling is blogging daily from the campaign trail. Follow his musings every morning at wgaz.ca/blogthevote. Just a day after I griped about the lack of actual debate at the University Students’ Council debates, along comes the best news this campaign has yet to see. All right, that’s a bit much. But my man Adam Fearnall — president of the Huron University Students’ Council — did inform me that Huron will be hosting a debate this Thursday night, moderated by none other than former USC vice-president university affairs Dan Moulton. I won’t even make a bad joke here. This is really, really awesome. While we always back the Gazette’s own Mike Hayes, who did a fine job moderating Saturday’s debate, Moulton is also an excellent choice of moderator. Moulton knows the inner-workings of the USC having served on the executive, he knows campaigns having run Emily Rowe’s successful presidential bid and he knows how to moderate a good debate having served as the speaker of Huron’s council. But the biggest win here is the fact that the candidates will get to actually, you know, talk to each other and challenge one another on issues. It’s a novel idea, I know. But I think it could just work. Here’s the format: • Two open questions from the moderator • Pointed questions from the moderator • Open discussion amongst candidates • Audience questions • A debate winner will be declared Personally, I don’t really need someone to be declared the winner of the debate. I’m pretty sure the audience members can make their own judgments and this shouldn’t be about winning or losing. No one’s opinions or views on issues are right or wrong — it’s politics. Declaring a

CLOSED DOOR POLICY. Fraternity and sorority houses are scattered around Western’s campus, representing a large segment of the student population. A recent case in Alberta reignited concerns over secrecy and hazing despite international oversight.
Kaleigh Rogers NEWS EDITOR
The days of the fraternity paddle are dead and gone, according to members of the Greek scene at Western. But other schools evidently haven’t received the memo. In October, University of Alberta’s student newspaper reported on a video they received that included footage of alleged hazing at the Delta Phi chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon. After months of thorough investigation, the issue came to a head last week when Frank Robinson, U of A’s dean of students, announced the group was being suspended from the university for five years. The suspension means the fraternity will not be allowed to register as a student group at the university, use the university’s name or property, or associate themselves with the university in any way. “Their international [representatives] didn’t really punish them to the full extent, they didn’t have the treatment that they were expecting,” Matt Chornaby, judiciary chair for Western’s Interfraternity Council, explained. “On our campus, we would probably get hit a lot harder because we are a more involved Greek community; there are larger chapters and where there are larger chapters, there’s more risk involved. Our headquarters would come down hard. I

know especially with us, they will immediately seek criminal persecution, whereas in Alberta they didn’t.” At Western, there are two governing groups for the five sororities and seven fraternities on campus: the Panhellenic Council and the Interfraternity Council. These two groups answer to national and international levels and are required to act under their specific regulations and rules, especially when it comes to hazing. “The National Panhellenic Council has an approximately 200-page manual, and within that there is a very, very strict — probably page-long — definition on what constitutes hazing,” Emily Mordhorst, president of Western’s Panhellenic Council, noted. “We have to be very careful with all the activities that we participate in and organize to make sure that
they don’t fall under what constitutes hazing.” Some of the hazing at U of A allegedly included forcing new members to eat their own vomit and locking them in wooden boxes. Chornaby explained while this is an extreme form of hazing, international bodies overseeing fraternities and sororities are just as strict with lighter forms. “You’d be shocked and surprised as to what our international headquarters and the two governing bodies treat as hazing. Things like doing a scavenger hunt are constituted as hazing unless certain protocols are followed, because we can’t make anyone do anything against their will, so to speak,” he explained. Instances like the one at U of A, combined with the long history of secrecy in Greek life, have created a number of negative stigmas. Mike Siebert, president of the Interfraternity Council at U of A, admitted this level of secrecy doesn’t help the groups avoid negative stereotypes like hazing. “It’s true that the secrecy does not help, because it will lead a lot of people to speculate, as is the case with anything that is secret. People speculate, and sometimes it will lead people to believe the worst, even if that isn’t the case,” Siebert explained. Chornaby noted the groups try to remain transparent where they can. “If hazing were to occur, all of our websites have the statements about

hazing and retention and that sort of thing, so we’re pretty transparent in regards to what transpires. There are secret initiations, but outside of that, nothing is really secret.” Still, Siebert expressed a certain level of secrecy is an integral part of the Greek life. “It’s become part of the tradition to keep that level of secrecy, but it also helps build some of the aspects of having a tighter bond with the other members of the chapter and the other members of the group because you all share this same secret knowledge.”

DC++ becomes Omid++
Salari secures advertising on popular program
Alex Carmona GAZETTE STAFF
In an attempt to garner more student attention, campaign advertising for the University Students’ Council presidential election has come to an unexplored frontier. Omid Salari, one of the presidential candidates in the upcoming election, has secured exclusive campaign advertising rights to DC++ and Shakespeer — the DC++ equivalent for Macs. Both programs let users share files quickly over a local connection. “The DC++ admins contacted me [about securing advertising rights] and I saw a great opportunity, which was something I was saving my budget for,” Salari said. When asked for the rationale behind his decision to advertise on DC++, Salari cited the program’s pervasiveness among an important voter demographic: first-year students who live in residence. “The most active number of voters are first-years and getting [your campaign] into residences, which is a huge part of campaigning, is typically very difficult,” Salari noted. “DC++, meanwhile, has immediate outreach to thousands of students living in residence, as well as a Facebook group and fan page.” According to a spokesman from the DC++ administration team who spoke on the condition of anonymity, this is the first time any DC++ advertising has been run on this large a scale. It’s also the first time any USC presidential candidate has advertised on DC++. “What we’re doing for Omid is a complete deal, and it hasn’t been

done before, at least in my memory,” the source said. “We’re broadcasting to all the users, we have an hourly message that goes out with a big block of text, it’s really hard to miss.” According to the source, before they decided to exclusively support Salari, the DC++ administration team canvassed all three USC presidential candidates to see if there was any interest in advertising on DC++. That decision came about from the DC++ administration team’s desire to engage first-year students. “We were wondering if we could make the frosh more informed, that was the major thing. Then I talked to Omid and felt that he was the best candidate, so I figured why not give
the advertising to the person who [we think] would do the best job,” the source explained. Both the DC++ spokesman and Salari agreed the advertising would prove more effective at piquing the interest of students than more traditional forms of advertising. “I guess we’ll see on election day, but I’m thinking it’s probably going to have a fairly significant impact,” the source speculated. Salari declined to go into detail when asked about other unconventional advertising he may have planned. “I’ve got some tricks left up my sleeve, but I guess you just have to wait and see.”

Stuck in uni? Blame your parents
Are you the first person in your family to go to a post-secondary institution? A new study suggests you’re beating the odds. The Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario recently released two new studies showing students who come from families with no history of post-secondary education have lower odds of going to postsecondary school themselves, compared to students from low-income households. Having a parent with even one year of post-secondary education increased the students’ odds of attending post-secondary school more so than even an extra $50,000 of parental income per year. “It is the transmission of values in favour of PSE, the preparation for PSE and other such factors associated with parental education – and not family income – that actually matter most,” Ross Finnie, co-author of the study, explained in a press release. Finnie noted the study proves the influence of early background, family history and cultural influences on a student’s likelihood of pursuing education after high school. He explained the study can help encourage change by “providing better information to students and their families about the costs and benefits of education from an early age.”

Premier stops by London
McGuinty calls for growth in education
Cheryl Stone NEWS EDITOR
The London Convention Centre was home to Ontario royalty on Tuesday. The London Chamber of Commerce hosted a talk by Premier Dalton McGuinty, who discussed economic growth and jobs in the province. McGuinty explained that during his term, his government had created 200,000 more spaces in postsecondary institutions. “That’s something that’s very important to this community in particular.” He explained the province was hoping to see 70 per cent of the adult workforce have some sort of postsecondary credential. McGuinty also stressed his government had doubled student aid. Meaghan Coker, president of the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance, said increased access to all post-secondary education was good for students, but was quick to note it should not come at a cost to the quality of education. “That sacrifice is just unacceptable,” Coker said. She noted 200,000 students were spread across all levels of post-secondary education, but she still couldn’t foresee the impact of this on the student experience. “The effects that we’ve seen on the individual experience are unknown,” she explained. “We also need to make sure to fund the supportive services.” Coker had been in talks with several provincial leaders and felt they had understood why quality was important, going so far as noting they had made long term quality investment plans in education. “There’s still a continuing growth, we want to encourage that. We don’t

ever want to say to a student in Ontario, ‘There’s no room for you,’” McGuinty explained. “We will find ways to continue to work with our post-secondary education sector to ensure that they have the necessary resources,” he continued. He also explained, however, his government would have to keep the deficit in mind. Another touch point of McGuinty’s speech was tax credits for Ontario families. “Sometimes we think that the only way a government can help families in terms of reducing their household costs is to reduce taxes,” McGuinty said. “But that’s not true — there are other things that we can do as well.” He cited examples such as the children’s tax credit. “Our problem with tax credits […]
is that this money that is going to help Ontario families and they could be doing better,” Coker explained. “Those dollars can be doing far more and have a far greater benefit in other areas.” One other area McGuinty touched on was job growth in Ontario. He noted Ontario had recovered the majority of jobs it had lost. When asked where London jobs were, however, McGuinty was a bit evasive. “Well, there’s more work to be done,” he explained. “Tens of millions of dollars that went into this community for infrastructure.” He concluded there was still much work to be done in the province. “I think what Ontarians are looking for is progress.”

But we’re going to get an actual debate, so we’ll just ignore that part and enjoy the rest of it, which should be quite good.

Something I could do without
CHRW’s Minute to Win It went down in the UCC Atrium Monday afternoon. All three presidential candidates showed up and did their thing. Notable performances include Forgione busting out a freestyle rap and Salari taking his shirt off and touching his nipples. No I’m not kidding. Listen, stepping out of your comfort zone and showing a little bit of personality with a rap is one thing. It’s silly but it doesn’t exactly devalue
the electoral process, which is already pretty high school as it is. But not even in high school would someone do what Salari did in front of a CHRW camera on Monday. Salari’s striptease didn’t just border on distasteful, it crossed a line for me. I like Salari’s willingness to try new things. I like that he can turn a debate on its head with powerful rhetoric. I like that he’s not afraid to display his affable uniqueness. But what exactly does taking off your shirt and touching your nipples accomplish other than shock value? Some of Salari’s ideas are innovative and great. But it seems like every so often he slips in one that just doesn’t make any sense. Maybe if he had a campaign team, someone could edit his more bizarre ideas. The CHRW performance was completely adverse to Salari’s campaign promise to “not ____ around.” Simply put — it was silly, pointless and uncalled for.

DEALING WITH STRESS
Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.
— Anthleme Brillat-Savarin
Work OK and play good too
Students are stressed by nature. Between midterms, essays, extracurriculars, finances and a social life, we have to find ways of coping with the pressure. While some students try to alleviate stress with organization techniques and small rewards, others inevitably let their emotions takeover and shut down. Many students turn to food during stressful times, but think little of the negative health effects of consuming so much junk food. One reason students eat poorly when stressed is simply the convenience factor – it’s easier to grab a slice of pizza than it is to make a healthy meal from scratch, especially when you’re cramming for an exam the next day. It’s also difficult to eat healthy on a student budget, as the healthiest foods are often the most expensive. Other people eat for the sake of procrastinating because eating is a justified excuse for not doing work — we all have to eat so why not spend some extra time putting a meal together? Eating when stressed is indicative of a greater mentality about the student lifestyle. We justify an unhealthy lifestyle with a “work hard, play hard” attitude. Working hard academically justifies playing hard, meaning indulging in drinking and partying is a reward. There’s also a common attitude towards working out, whereby people don’t necessarily go to the gym with the full intentions of being healthy, but rather to make up for the junk food or excessive amounts of alcohol they have consumed, or plan on consuming in the future. Students also have a tendency to equate being healthy with looking good — physical results don’t necessarily coincide with one’s overall well-being. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle isn’t a top priority for many university students, but this is reasonable. This just isn’t a time in our life to focus on our health — we have the rest of our lives to worry about it. If an unhealthy lifestyle makes you feel guilty, though, there are small changes you can make, whether it’s substituting a regular beer for a light one, making the effort to go to the gym once a week or upping your vegetable intake. With the student lifestyle, it’s all about taking the small steps to improve your overall health.

Letters to the editor
Military bashing unnecessary
Re: “Desperate times call for desperate measures” (Feb. 2, 2011) To the Editor: I was angered and disappointed to see the editorial comic accompanying the editorial in the Gazette. Gazette, we’ve gotten along great for a long time, going over three and a half years without pissing each other off— more than I can say for most of my friends. However, the comic poking fun at Western accepting the Goldman Sachs scholarship, as well as parts of the article were ignorant. I don’t have a strong opinion either way about Goldman Sachs, my issue instead lies with the depiction of the “Canadian Army Scholarship” under the editorial cartoon’s headline, “Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures.” I attend Western under subsidization from the Canadian Forces, nominally a “Canadian Army Scholarship.” It was a competitive process for which I worked hard and of which I am proud, hardly a desperate measure undertaken during desperate times. The Canadian Forces pays tuition expenses to the university for dozens of soldiers, sailors, and air-men and women who are posted here as students, which the university gladly accepts and for which the military requires no advertising, branding on campus, or any other supplementary benefits. Grouping the Canadian Forces with corporations that the Gazette freely attacks as “tarred,” “sinister” and “disreputable” hurts and is just plain wrong. Say what you will about any of the Canadian Forces current missions or policies—I’ve heard it all—but to paint the whole organization in the same light as the popular economic whipping-boy is lazy journalism. You even go so far as to say that accepting scholarships from organizations like the Canadian Forces “makes us sacrifice…our integrity.” Well I’ve been at
Western for about three and a half years and in the military for about four—and I daresay that the people I’ve had the pleasure of serving with across Canada demonstrate far more integrity than the average student here. I’m graduating this year, and I must admit this has been a fairly minor blip in our relationship. Your coverage during Remembrance Day is usually excellent and respectful, and I’ve found you to be a fairly moderate and honest publication, so I’m willing to let this go. But you owe an apology to the dozens of men and women in the military who will come back for another academic year, and to the ones who will be entering their first year here. Military members posted to Western should feel just as accepted as I’ve been made to feel here, and they deserve your consideration. Sow the seeds of the accepting culture to which you pay lip service, and next time, think before you draw.

sands will be something that our generations, and our children’s generation will have to be bare the brunt of. Future generations will be stuck paying for the mess that we are making now, and that is not something they should be burdened with. Oil producing companies, and the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers should be held accountable for the environmental and health effects that the production of oil is causing. There should also be funding invested by the government into the development of environmentally friendly energy sources. Realistically we will see the end of oil and be unprepared to deal with the consequences. Investing legitimate efforts into alternate solutions is crucial for the very air in which we breathe. If we wait until the absolute depletion of oil before investing these efforts, then we will be dealing with issues that are even larger than they are today. We could sit around all day and debate about the effects of the oil sands or we could turn our efforts into finding alternative energy sources and lessening the burden for future generations.
Editor’s Note: This letter brought to light a meaning the Gazette didn’t intend with the editorial cartoon, but is plainly there. We apologize for any disrespect paid to the Canadian Forces and its scholarships through the cartoon. However, the Gazette stands by arguments within the editorial itself.

Stress eating takes toll on mental health
Study tries to find link between trans fats and depression

Next time you reach for that chocolate bar, you may want to think again. A recent study by researchers in Spain found college graduate students who consumed an abundance of trans fats had a 42 per cent increased risk of developing depression compared to those who had barely any trans fats in their diet. Anne Zok, nutrition manager for Western’s Hospitality Services, says we should completely avoid consuming foods containing trans fats. “Trans fats are created when manufacturers use a process called partial hydrogenation — turning liquid oil into a semi-solid form such as shortening or margarine,” she explains. “Although there is speculation that a diet high in trans fat can relate to depression, it is important to note that in general, people who consume more trans fat found in junk food might also be more likely to smoke, drink alcohol and engage in other behaviour that may increase their risk of depression.” According to Zok, evidence suggests processed foods are impacting mental and cardiovascular health in ways researchers do not fully understand yet. So why do so many students reach for fattening foods when they’re stressed or upset? Sandra Fisman, chair of Western’s department of psychiatry with the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentisry, explains it can relate back to our childhood experiences. “What we do is often determined
People who are depressed tend to either lose their appetite completely, or eat a lot more. For those who eat more, one possibility is that it could be a form of selfmedication – they are feeling deeply unhappy and food brings some temporary and minor relief.
— Dr. Derek Mitchell
by our genetic makeup — by our early experiences, or how food may have been used while we were developing,” she says. Fisman says there are theories that suggest if a mother feeds her infant every time they cry, as the infant grows up they may deal with emotions by eating, because that is how they were programmed to deal with things. “A dysfunctional way of coping would certainly be eating a carbohydrate load of a massive amount of dense, fatty foods,” Fisman says. “Using food to deal with stress if not a good strategy — it is much better to learn other strategies like exercising or listening to music.”
Derek Mitchell, assistant professor of psychiatry and anatomy and cell biology at Western, adds eating excessively may be a way for people to cope with specific emotions. “People who are depressed tend to either lose their appetite completely, or eat a lot more,” he says. “For those who eat more, one possibility is that it could be a form of self-medication — they are feeling deeply unhappy and food brings some temporary and minor relief.” Most people have likely experienced this temporary happiness. However, we cannot put all of the blame on what we eat, according to Fisman. “I don’t think that what you are eating will cause depression, except if you have gotten into the habit of overeating to deal with emotion,” she says. “Gaining weight can make you feel bad about yourself, and low selfesteem can certainly affect your mood. It is more of an indirect effect.” When dealing with emotions or stress, Zok suggests there are several healthy food choices that may actually make students happier. “Some preliminary research suggests that omega-3 fats, found in fish, omega-3 eggs, walnuts, and flax seed, have been successfully used to treat some of the symptoms of depression and mental health issues in general,” Zok says. “Unsaturated fats are also better for us.” “Being fitter and healthier is probably going to be a productive factor for sure,” Mitchell adds. “Without question, obesity is bad for your mind and body, so it is a good idea to limit the foods to lead to obesity.”

Asymina Kantorowicz GAZETTE STAFF
The Roommate Directed by: Christian E. Christiansen Starring: Minka Kelly, Leighton Meester and Cam Gigandet Most thrillers are meant to keep you questioning the finale until the very end — sadly The Roommate is highly predictable from the start. The movie stars Minka Kelly as the beautiful and sweet Sara Matthews. Matthews is heading off to college, excited to start a new chapter in her life. While at a frat party, she catches the attention of heartthrob and drummer, Stephen (Cam Gigandet) while her gorgeous ex-boyfriend, Jason (Matt Lanter) continues to call her. Along with the boy fans, Sara is easily befriended by her dormmates and is liked by everyone she meets — especially her roommate, Rebecca (Leighton Meester). What first seems like a blossoming friendship soon turns into a sick obsession. Rebecca is set on having Sara all to herself and decides the best way to go about it is to hurt everyone dearest to her new friend. As the movie develops the audience realizes Rebecca doesn’t just want to be Sara’s friend but wants to become her — something that becomes apparent when Rebecca pierces her own ears to wear Sara’s jewelry. Expectations for the movie are trampled when it becomes obvious that the plotline revolves solely around Sara’s slow realization that her roommate is more psychotic than she ever thought possible.
Glengarry Glen Ross hits the stage
A controversial and edgy play is being brought to Western by Huron University College’s GetLit society and London’s own Richmond & Tower Productions. The controversial play, Glengarry Glen Ross, originally written by David Mamet, follows four salesmen as they struggle to win a cutthroat competition during the 1982 recession. The play was put together by a team of Huron and Western students who are very passionate about its release. “I have wanted to do this play for three years, we’re passionate about theatre and we want to step it up at this school,” Andrew Pel, the production’s director explains. “This school does not represent theatre, and where business is king and theatre has no place, this play will have a message.” The main message of the production, “always be closing,” is delivered in an aggressive setting. With offensive material and troubled characters, the script can be considered hard for reproduction for young and mature audiences. “You can’t go back and change the language or values that are embedded in a historical context in an attempt to be politically correct,” Pel says. But nonetheless, Pel welcomes anyone from Western to attend. “It is the best play written about business and contemporary masculinity,” Pel says. Glengarry Glen Ross runs Wednesday to Sunday at 7:30 p.m., with one matinee performance Saturday at 2 p.m. Ticket are available at InfoSource for $10.
Charity fashion show supports cancer patients
Fashion show season is upon us again. Kicking things off is Infusion Canada’s Burlesque Charity Lingerie Show. The show will be held tonight at The London Tap House. It will feature various lingerie outfits as well as choreographed dance numbers by Elan Dance Arts Studio. Infusion Canada is a charity that launched in 2003 supporting young cancer survivors. Cancer patients aged 13 to 35 are usually found to have unusual kinds of cancers, according to Infusion’s research. They are left with the financial burden of paying for treatment of this cancer. In turn, that affects their ability to afford tuition. Infusion raises money to grant three to five $2,000 bursaries to young cancer survivors each year – and they’re the only ones who do so. There are chapters of the charity in London, Hamilton and Toronto. Over the past seven years, the three branches have raised over $200,000. Their official vision is to foster innovation, leadership and growth in young Canadians supporting cancer survival. Tickets for the show are $10 and can be bought at the door at The London Tap House. Appetizers are to be served at 10 p.m. and the show will begin at 10:30 p.m.
While all of what Rebecca accomplishes may seem relatively sick and twisted, it produces more laughs than shivers. Had the producers wanted a better reaction from the audience, they probably shouldn’t have hired the stars from hit teen television shows like Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries and Friday Night Lights. It’s difficult to take them all seriously and the combination proves to be a failure. The only real star in the film is Leighton Meester. She demonstrates she’s capable of playing more than
just superficial star of Gossip Girl with this daring new role. Leighton manages to save the film by generating a few disturbing moments with her creepy glares and actions, the worst of them being when she inflicts unnecessary animal cruelty on an adorable and innocent kitten. The Roommate lacks the twists and turns that make a thriller an entertaining hit. Although the movie’s principal feature may be its cast of familiar faces, Leighton Meester is the only one worth watching.

Shorthanded ‘Stangs snag the victory
Lamb scores game winner
Brian Fung CONTRIBUTOR
The Mustangs men’s hockey team entered the weekend missing six players who were away at the Winter Universiade. But in a spirited contest against the Windsor Lancers, the Mustangs still managed a 4-3 victory in what could be described as a character win. “We’re shorthanded as it is,” Mustangs assistant coach Pat Powers said. “The guys battled hard and persevered through a lot of the adversity that they faced tonight.” Timely goals propelled the Mustangs to victory. After the Lancers scored the opening goal in the first period, Josh McQuade responded for Western less than three minutes later. Jason Furlong followed up for the Mustangs with a great individual effort putting in his own rebound to give the Mustangs the lead halfway through the first. The Lancers evened it up with five minutes left in the period, but Steve Reese responded for Western less than a minute later after a Lancer turnover, giving the Mustangs the 3-2 lead after the first frame. “We made some errors in the neutral zone that we can’t make,” Lancers coach Kevin Hamlin said. “Good players capitalize and that’s exactly what they did.” After Windsor tied the game in the second period, the Lancers committed a costly neutral zone turnover leading to an odd man rush for the Mustangs. Kyle Lamb capitalized on a dazzling passing play to seal the victory for Western. After the game, Hamlin expressed frustration over Windsor’s inability to generate quality chances. He praised Western’s strong defence that has propelled the Mustangs to the top of the Ontario University Athletics west division standings. “The bottom line is we couldn’t get after their goalie,” Hamlin said. “There’s no question that the weakest part of their team is their net minder, but it’s tough to get to him and that’s a credit to their defence. For them to play that well in front of him with the guys that they have out of the lineup, it speaks well to their depth.” With the strong season they are having, players are setting their sights on winning nationals. However, Powers insists that it’s too early to be thinking that far ahead. “We’re not really preparing for nationals right now,” Powers said. “We have a lot of tough teams in our division that we have to worry about first. We have three tough rounds to get through before we can think about the nationals. Once we get our team back together, we’ll see what happens.”

Ridgebacks ride to victory
Disallowed goals prove costly for Mustangs
Ryan Stern GAZETTE STAFF
After winning their game the night before, the Mustangs were looking to continue their win streak when they welcomed the University of Ontario Institute of Technology Ridgebacks to Thompson Arena. Unfortunately, the shorthanded Mustangs squad could not solve goaltender Jason Guy as he backstopped the Ridgebacks to a 3-0 victory. “Our expectations were no different simply because we are missing guys,” Mustangs captain Kyle Lamb said. Both teams skated to a hardfought yet scoreless draw after two periods until Kyle Wetering of the Ridgebacks squeezed one through the legs of Mustangs goalie Josh Unice. It was a goaltending clinic for most of the night as the final two Ridgeback goals were put into an

empty net. “Well you could tell that Guy was playing such a good game that one goal might have been the difference tonight,” UOIT head coach Marlin Muylaert said. “Unice was spectacular as well, so I thought both goalies were magnificent, but ours might have been a little more magnificent tonight.” Luck was certainly on the Ridgebacks’ side as the Mustangs looked to have struck first halfway through the second period when Chris Rocca found the back of the net. But the referees quickly converged to wave the goal off. Once again the Mustangs answered back with a quick goal, only to be disappointed as the refs waived that one off too. “There’s always a little bit of disbelief that you can have two goals waved off in the same game, but the ref’s decision is the ref’s decision and
we just have to kind of live with it and move forward,” Mustangs assistant coach Pat Powers said. Despite out-shooting UOIT for the first two periods, the Mustangs came away frustrated with the loss. But with playoffs fast approaching, the team remains optimistic about their future. “We have our full team moving forward starting on Tuesday and hopefully we’ll have good things from there,” Powers added. The Mustangs sit in first place in the Ontario University Athletics west division with only two games remaining before playoffs. “Our team is still playing well. It was a tough loss, we were pretty tired, but we have to give them credit because they played a great game tonight and we just have to get back to it next week and get ready for playoffs,” Lamb said.

Lady luck spits on ‘Stangs
Greg Colgan GAZETTE STAFF
If they didn’t have bad luck, they’d have no luck at all. That’s been the story for the Mustangs women’s hockey team who, despite outplaying the Laurier Golden Hawks, lost 3-2 Saturday afternoon at Thompson arena. “We’ve played extremely well the last six weeks, we’re just unlucky and we just never get that break. That’s the way it’s gone for us this year,” Mustangs head coach Chris Higgins said of his team’s misfortunes. It was one of those bad breaks that saw Laurier open the scoring. The Mustangs struck back quickly when forward Katie Dillon fired a quick wrist shot past Laurier goaltender Kristen Kilgallen. The goal was Dillon’s fifth in three games. “We’re missing [Ellie Seedhouse], our best player and captain. Everyone has been fired up and has realized we’ve got to step up. I’ve been feeding off them a lot of late,” Dillon said. The bad luck continued for the Mustangs when a scrum in front of their net saw a Laurier player land on goalie Jessica Ulrich, resulting in a knee injury shortly after Laurier took a 2-1 lead. Rookie Olivia Ross came in to relieve Ulrich and made several key saves until another funny bounce gave Laurier’s Fiona Lester a wide open net. The Mustangs would answer back with a late power play goal by Lindsay Gidomski, but despite chances in the dying minutes, they were unable to tie it. “You always need to play tough, but we just never get any bounces,” Gidomski said. Although they’ve had tough losses in several close games this season, Higgins said his team has never given up. “Even though we’ve had a miserable season according to our record, not one of the kids have quit this season. We had the number one team in the OUA come in here and they were lucky to get out with a win.”
