The Thunderwolves started the first set ready to play, winning 25-13.
Windsor stepped up their game in the second set and the two teams went back and forth up until the technical time-out with LU leading 16-15. Lakehead went on a 7 point run after the timeout and although the Lancers did not give up, Lakehead took the last point winning the set 25-22.

Coach Chris Green states, “Tough game with so many highs and lows. I think both teams did a great job attacking each other in so many tactical ways. In the end, we played safe as the situation required us to continue being aggressive. We took the foot off the gas and in doing so passed on a great opportunity to have a successful night. We will reload, and bring the same plans to the table tomorrow hopefully with a different result.”
Meghan Routier had 14 kills and Ciara Zarn finished with 16 digs tonight along with Leah Mousseau and Rheanna Geisel having 11 kills each.
The Thunderwolves will rematch the Lancers tomorrow at 7 pm in the Thunderdome.
