OTTAWA – SPORTS – The Thunderwolves women’s basketball team (4-8) lost to the Ottawa Gee-Gees Friday night 69-45.
Coach Kreiner says, “Really tough one for us tonight. We started well, running and doing what we do well but Ottawa did a great job taking away our strengths and ultimately they were way tougher then us tonight. We had a lot good looks that we normally make but they were too early in the clock and didn’t get enough second chance opportunities.”

Lakehead continued to struggle offensively and the Gee-Gees out rebounded them for the remainder of the game.
