The Lakehead Thunderwolves women’s volleyball team fell 3-2 to the York Lions on Saturday night at the C.J. Sanders Fieldhouse. 

The Thunderwolves fell behind in the first, losing  25-12 but came back strong winning the second set 25-16 and then the third set 25-21.

“Tonight was a great environment at the Fieldhouse. It was a great way to start the season at home,” said head coach Craig Barclay. 

“It was a pure battle to the end tonight.” 

Lakehead and York went back and forth exchanging points in the fourth and fifth sets. The Thunderwolves battled hard but unfortunately came up short losing the fourth set 25-22 and the fifth set 15-12.

“We had chances in both the fourth and fifth to close it out. We are young and have to learn how to close out those matches,” said Barclay. 

“It’s a great starting point and we are going to learn from the match tonight and come back ready for more.”

Thunderwolves Megan Nahachewsky and Abigail Almonte led the Lakehead team with 11 kills each. Setter Lauren Follet finished the match with 37 assists.

The Thunderwolves will be back in action next weekend as they host the Western Mustangs in two-afternoon games, Saturday, Nov. 9 and Sunday, Nov. 10. The first serve will be at 2:00 p.m. on both days.
