THUNDER BAY – SPORTS – The Lakehead women’s basketball team beat the Algoma Thunderbirds tonight in a convincing 88-56 victory in the Thunderdome.

“Great start to the game. Energy was there in the first quarter. Algoma responded and we dropped our energy level. I wasn’t happy with our transition D and our screen defence but offensively, when we moved the ball great things happened.” – Coach Jon Kreiner
Leashja Grant was unstoppable tonight with 26 points, going 9-11 from inside the paint. Bridget O’Reilly also had a great game with 16 points and Kielly McDonough and Nikki Ylagan both went 3-5 from the three.
