Lakehead Women’s Ultimate complete second day at CIEUS, win tourny

Today Lakehead Women’s Ultimate team continued the Canadian Indoor Eastern University Series (CIEUS) tournament in Kingston, ON. After their undefeated record yesterday, the Thunderwolves wanted to continue the streak. In their first game of the day, they played Queen’s University. Queen’s structured play made Lakehead adjust their game constantly. With the help of both Michaela Bohunicky and Lily Colquhoun’s defense, the Thunderwolves won 19-11. Lakehead moved on to the semi-finals where they faced Waterloo B. Lakehead started slow, as Waterloo B took an early lead 9-5 at half-time. Lakehead put the first half behind them, and went on a 12-point run, having the final score 17-10. Alicia Todd’s 5 goals in the second half lead of the semi-final game helped Lakehead get to the finals.

“Our team had only 8 players, compared to the other Universities with rosters up to 17. Our team is 100% quality over quantity. We came down to Kingston to play hard and with heart and that’s exactly what we did this weekend. I couldn’t be more proud of our team.” – Coach and Captain Jasmine Ferdousi

In the finals, the Thunderwolves faced Waterloo A. Lakehead had beat Waterloo A in pool play, only by 3, so this was their hardest match of the day. The women had one mindset – win. And that’s what they did. Lakehead Women’s Ultimate team won the first of three CIEUS tournaments of the indoor season, winning the finals 18-14. Lindsay Edward had a great day catching 15 goals, and Katie Gilmor with 11, and Erin Murphy contributing with 10. Chuhang “Kity” Zhang put up 13 assists helping the Thunderwolves with their high point count. Alicia Todd helped with 8 goals, 10 assists, and 3 layouts while Captain Jasmine Ferdousi contributed with 6 goals, 20 assists, 7 d-blocks, and 4 layouts.
