WATERLOO, ON – Sports – The Lakehead University T-Wolves Swept Warriors in Women’s Basketball winning 68-55 on Saturday evening. With the win their record improves to 5-4 on the season, and puts them in a tie for 3rd place in the OUA West.
Things started slowly for both teams, and there was an early delay in the game due to a lower body injury to Ashley Randall, who did not return. Lakehead created some separation in the second quarter to lead at halftime, 36-23. Lakehead would maintain their lead down the stretch and keep the Warriors at bay, who slip to 0-8 on the season.
Top scorer for Lakehead was Carolyn Fragale with 22 points, 4 assists and 4 rebounds (7-11 shooting). Katie Ulakovic scored 16 points with 5 assists. Kate Kuntze led the Warriors with 17 points and 4 rebounds, and Erika Persson and Laura Bossers scored 10 points each.
Coach Jon Kreiner said, “Tonight we played a much smarter basketball game. We competed on the boards, moved the ball and didn’t rely on the three. Early we had to overcome two quick fouls on Jess and Ayse, and an injury to Ashley, but our kids off the bench stepped up to provide energy and solid defense. Katie Ulakovic played super again tonight while Rachael Bland gave us everything we need from her. Carolyn continues to shine this year and was very consistent. We look forward to getting back home where we must play very well against a very good Brock team.”
The women will play Brock twice at home next weekend.
