In the second half, things changed considerably. The Laurentian’s came out very composed and went on the attack, and in less than 10 minutes, the Laurentian’s had dented the twine twice. The Laurentians Paul Slaney scored a goal at the 51 minute mark and then at the 54 minute mark, veteran Rudy Norman scored , giving the Laurentians a 2-1 score.
