The Thunderwolves showed some grit against the McMaster Marauders (CIS #7), but would eventually go in straight sets to their hosts on Friday evening (21-25, 19-25, 9-25).
Lakehead challenged McMaster in the first set, leading early on, 10-7. McMaster then went on a 9-3 run to lead at the technical time-out. The ‘Wolves fell victim to some aggressive serving from McMaster’s Joanna Jedrzejewska and others.
“I think the big thing with our team was that we were very excited about how we played the first two sets, with no fear and played technical and tactical volleyball,” commented coach Chris Green post game.
Leah Mousseau continued her pace on the attack, scoring 11 points (9 kills, 2 service aces).
On the match McMaster totalled 8 service aces to Lakehead’s 4.
“McMaster is an intimidating team. The girls played with conviction in the first 2 sets, and we’ll build off that as we prepare for Ryerson tomorrow. We showed some fight and that has to be extended. Vanessa Masters and Leah Mousseau had a solid connection and when Kailan finds her steady flow we will be in good shape. Our middles did a great job trying to challenge their middles. I am proud of their toughness and their fight.”
