WINDSOR, Ont. – Jamie Wise scored his 11th and 12th goals of the season and added an assist to lead the Ryerson Rams over the Windsor Lancers, 4-1 on Saturday night at the Windsor Family Credit Union Centre.


With his three-point night, Wise (Stoufville, Ont.) now becomes the top scorer in the CIS with 31 points (12 G, 19A).

The 10th ranked team in the CIS, Ryerson (12-5-0) equaled their win total from last season and moved into sole possession of second place in the OUA West with the victory.
