A national championship banner is coming to Wilfrid Laurier University.

The Laurier Golden Hawks men's curling team captured the USports/Curling Canada national title Sunday afternoon in Manitoba.

The squad, led by Matt Hall, took an 8-5 decision over the Dalhousie Tigers in the gold medal game, after taking down the Guelph Gryphons 8-4 earlier in the day to reach the final.

Also sharing in the win on the ice is John Willsey (vice), Jordie Lyon-Hatcher (second), Etobicoke's Graham Singer (lead), Adam Vincent (alternate) and Matt Wilkinson (coach).

Laurier finished a perfect 9-0 in the national tournament.

The Tigers would snag a point in the first end, but by the time the fourth end finished, Laurier was up 5-1 and never surrendered the lead.

All four Hawks shot for at least 80 per cent.

It marks Laurier's second national title in five years, last winning in 2016.
