The Lakehead women’s volleyball team lost to the University of Windsor 3-0 (29-27, 25-20, 25-16) tonight at the St. Denis Centre in Windsor.
It was a tight game from the beginning of the first set between the Lancers and the ‘Wolves. By the technical timeout the Lancers led 16-13 but the ‘Wolves quickly took the lead at 21-18. The Lancers bounced back and the two teams went point-for-point at the end of the set but the Lancers finished it off winning 29-27.
The Lancers started the second set with a 5-1 run but the ‘Wolves took over, leading 15-10. However, the Lancers took back the game going on some big runs that led them to win the set 25-20.
In the third set, the ‘Wolves once again had the lead at the beginning but Windsor was able to take it back and won the set 25-16.
“Another game where this group fears winning. We are more physical but we have athletes that perform when it’s convenient. They have POTENTIAL but not sure why the opportunity to execute is so hard to find. I think what we are missing is that player that WANTS that extra shot, wants to take on that big running back and wants to swing for the big kill. I have not seen such a dynamic and athletic group but I have had teams that loved to fight right to the end and then, regardless, they wanted to fight again for the next one.”
Kailan Robinson led the ‘Wolves with 14 kills and 10 digs. Sara potter had 9 kills, 8 digs and Leah Mousseau and Rheanna Geisel both contributed 7 kills each.
Melissa Smyth of the Lancers led her team with 14 kills.
“Windsors Jade Ziebarth and Smyth were lights out tonight and were so efficient that we had no answer for them what so ever” – Coach Green
“On the positive we can dig with the best of them no question. We just need to find hitters who have that desire to perform everynight and want to perform for their teammates” – Coach Green
The Thunderwolves will have a rematch against the Lancers tomorrow at 2:00pm at the St. Denis Centre in Windsor.
