Box Score

The Lakehead women’s basketball team (12-4) swept the Waterloo Warriors (1-15) tonight with a convincing 71-46 victory in the Thunderdome.

The Thunderwolves came out strong in the first quarter, holding the Warriors to 5 points followed by a 15-0 run. Lakehead continued to push the pace and along with strong ball movement and solid offense, the Wolves led 41-18 at halftime.

Bridget O’Reilly opened the third quarter with a big three but the Warriors came out with a new energy. Lakehead only outscored Waterloo by two (30-28) in the second half but the Warriors were unable to recover from the first, resulting in another win for the Thunderwolves.

“Tonight I thought we played a more complete game even though Waterloo scored more points. Waterloo played tough and with good energy in the second half but we brought good energy too. Rachel was artificial defensively, Bridget was hitting tonight, Leashja got back on the double-double track and Lily continues to quietly have a terrific sophomore season.” – Coach Jon Kreiner

Leashja Grant finished the night with 23 points, 15 rebounds and 4 blocks. Bridget O’Reilly had 18 points, hitting 6 total threes and Lily Gruber-Schulz had 11 points.

The Thunderwolves are sitting at the top of the OUA West leaderboard along with McMaster and Windsor, who are both currently 12-4.

Lakehead is back on the road next weekend to take on Windsor on January 26 and 27th.
