THUNDER BAY – BEMIDJI, MN – The Lakehead Thunderwolves women’s basketball team finished their pre-season schedule with a loss to the Bemidji State Beavers, 79-67 on Saturday evening. Coming off a 4-point loss last night, the T-Wolves knew that they weren’t to be sloughed off without a fight in their second game versus the Beavers. Despite getting down 42- 25 in the first 20 minutes, the T-Wolves fought hard down the stretch and won the second half 42-37.

Wintra Desta had her best game as a Thunderwolf, scoring 14 points (10-12 FT) in 20 minutes of play. Carolyn Fragale also had 14 points, while Lindsay Inkila had 12. Jessica de Hann was LU’s top rebounder with 6 (5 offensive).

Morgan Lee was the top scorer for the Beavers with 18, and Kate Warwmack had a double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds in 18 minutes of play.

Lakehead coach Jon Kreiner shared post-game, “Bemidji did a good job slowing us down tonight and defending the three. They also did a great job establishing their post game and dominated us 38-20. I’m very proud how we kept fighting back but Bemidji was too tough inside and on the boards. Winta Desta stepped up big for us tonight and had a presence inside. This was a great weekend for us and we will be more prepared for league play next weekend.”

The women will begin their regular season next weekend in Toronto versus Ryerson and U of T.
