Mustangs to Meet McGill in Queen’s Cup Final

Mustangs to Meet McGill in Queen’s Cup Final

It’s not often that CIS hockey dominates the headlines within a city. It’s even harder for an OUA team to capture local attention when they are contending against one of the most competitive Ontario Hockey League teams, the London Knights. But this Saturday, March 10th, the Western Mustangs Men’s Hockey Team will be competing in their second consecutive Queen’s Cup (OUA Championship) after yet another successful season.

So let’s recap how they have made it to this point:

The playoffs have been a similar story, seeing the team win each of their Best-of-Three series’; Laurier (2-0), Brock (2-0) and Windsor (2-1).

All of this leading to a one game, sudden death, Queen’s Cup final against the McGill Redmen this Saturday March 10th – 7:30pm at Western’s very own Thompson Arena. So if you are in the Forest City and looking for elite level hockey with high stakes, come support your Western Mustangs!!
