WINDSOR, ON – Sports – The Lakehead Thunderwolves women’s basketball team lost 77-42 to Windsor on Saturday evening. Lakehead succeeded in matching the Lancers in the first quarter, staying within one, 17-16 after ten minutes. Lakehead’s offense production would falter following that, however, scoring only 6 points in each of the 2nd and 3rd quarters against a stingy Lancer defense.
Lakehead’s leading scorer was Lacey McNulty with 11 points. She would be the only T-Wolf in double digits. Lindsay Druery had 8 points and 5 rebounds.
For Windsor, Laura Mullins had a game-high 18 points on 6 of 11 shooting from the field, including 4 of 8 from long range. Bojana Kovacevic also had a big game as she finished with 14 points on 4 of 5 shooting from three-point land.
Lancer guards Korissa Williams and Miah Langlois were also effective as Williams finished with 10 points, 6 steals, 5 rebounds and 4 assists while Langlois chipped in with 8 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. CIS Player of the Year Jessica Clemencon added 8 points and 13 rebounds.
Coach Jon Kreiner comments, “I was happy that we came out with a better focus to start the game. Even though Windsor started out on fire we fought back hard to keep it to 1 at the quarter. With the score 21-20 we had 4 good opportunities to take the lead but we couldn’t finish. Windsor is a great team, maybe the best I’ve seen but we are making too many defensive mistakes. Lindsay Druery played great 1 on 1 defense against the country’s MVP Clemencon and our post defense was ok this weekend. We need to get more disciplined in the perimeter and get a lot tougher on the boards.”
