It was a sweetheart of an ending for Vanesa Masters and Jennifer Casey on Valentine’s Day in the Thunderdome, as the two 5th year seniors completed their Lakehead careers with a 3-0 win over the Windsor Lancers (25-20, 25-23, 28-26).
It was some of the most inspired volleyball played in the Thunderdome this season. Lakehead passers were much improved since a day prior, and gave their setter, Vanessa Masters, a lot more to work with. In turn, Masters fed her hitters with spot-on accuracy, most notably Jen Casey at critical points in the match.
In the first set Lakehead looked re-focussed after a lacklustre effort on Saturday. Coming down the stretch the ‘Wolves clung to a 20-18 lead, and thanks to Jen Casey crushing a few kills late on the left side, Lakehead took the first set.
Mousseau was the game’s leading scorer, making 17 kills on 39 swings with 13 digs.
Vanessa Masters finished the game with 37 assists and 11 digs, while Jen Casey made 11 kills on 44 attempts with 12 digs.
Green added, “The greatest thing today was the team responding from last night. But it is a bittersweet ending to the season. Today showed how we’re capable of playing, that was the first game this term that we played at the same level that we’ve practiced at. Everyone engaged and in sync with one another.”
