Thunderwolves say thanks to senior players

Coach Jon Kreiner said, “Tonight was a much better effort against Windsor. We had a poor start (down 13) but we fought back to a 9 point deficit at the half”.

“We competed to a 55-47 score but just couldn’t get the stops we needed to get over the hump.” added Coach Kreeiner. “We did a good job taking care of the ball but we struggled on the boards, especially in the fourth quarter. In all this game will help us prepare for McMaster next weekend.” 

Despite the loss, Lakehead showed some great toughness down the stretch against a very talented team. After the Lancers took a 29-16 lead heading into the 2nd quarter, the Thunderwolves responded, out-scoring Windsor 19-15 in the Q.
