The regular season is winding down for the Thunderwolves hockey team and a regular-season division title is not looking good at this stage of the game.
Back-to-back 1-0 losses over the past weekend to the division-leading Western Mustangs virtually wiped out the chance of taking first place in the OUA West.
The Wolves have six games to go, including two on the road in London against Western. The real battle for Lakehead now is for second, and a guarantee of home ice advantage in the first two playoff rounds. And it’s starting to look like Round 1 will mean a date with either Laurier or Guelph – if they can hang on.
After last weekend’s losses, their lead over Waterloo is down to two points. That means Lakehead still controls its own destiny in that race, but barely.
For the men's basketball team, things look a lot better. They scored two more wins at home over McMaster last weekend, and hit the road to Windsor this weekend. It's likely the team will retain its No. 2 ranking when the weekly poll is released later today.
Speaking of two, it's down the final dance in the NFL.
It’s two weeks until the Super Bowl, which will pit the New England Patriots against the New York Giants.
It’s Tom Brady against Eli Manning all over again, the same match-up that ended up spoiling the Patriots quest for a perfect season in 2008. Don't look for the Giants to do it again; The Tom Brady tight-end show is on fire and next to Green Bay, the AFC champs are the strongest team New York will face in the postseason.
Then again, the Giants did beat the Packers…
