LAST TIME OUT VS. FANSHAWE

Fanshawe has only surrendered only four set losses this year, and one of them was to the Hawks earlier this season. Humber took the first set, then lost two tight ones before bowing out in the fourth via a blowout 25-10 score. Clayton Blanchette (21) and Kamyn Wilkins (16) scored in double figures for the Humber team. Three Falcons scored in double digits, led by Cole Jordan's 21.
