KINGSTON – The lakehead Thunderwolves women’s volleyball team lost on Saturday afternoon to the Queen’s Gaels 3-2 (24-26, 21-25, 25-23, 25-18, 12-15).
Doing their best to bounce back following a Friday evening game in Toronto against York that ended in a loss, Lakehead dropped the first two sets closely before battling back to force a 5th and deciding set.
Offside hitter Vanessa Chorkawy finished the day with 21 points, while Brittany Macleod and Stephanie Chartrand finished with 10 and 7 points respectively.
Sara Hudson finished with 36 assists, and libero Breanne Hilhorst finished the day with 20 digs.
Lakehead coach Chris Green stated, “In the end, winning counts, and in the end, we are the better team; but the best team today, ‘in the end’ was Queens. We had average performances from too many and great performances from a few. Breanne recovered well from yesterday, and as a team we had great control in this game. But we must learn to control things in the end and our players MUST learn to focus on being efficient and tough down the stretch.”
Green added, “This is easily the most frustrating loss I have experienced here. We deserved a better fate no question. Clearly you do not get what you deserve, you get what you take.”
The women have battled hard in this 3 game experience where they travelled last night late and had a fast turnaround. Next they we get ready for RMC tomorrow, another tough team.
Lakehead finishes the road trip tomorrow afternoon in Kingston vs Royal Military College at 1PM Eastern.
