In their third game the women faced Western X University. Lakehead continued their tough defense and incredible offensive play winning 18-0. In their last game of the day the women continued their winning streak and defeated a high-spirited Ryerson University team, 18-9. Top scorers for today were Erin Murphy with 14 goals and Lindsay Edward with 15. Captain Jasmine Ferdousi and Alicia Todd contributed a combined 35 assists. Strong defensive play by Katie Gilmor and Michaela Bohunicky also helped with Lakehead’s success on Saturday.
The Lakehead Women’s Ultimate team finished day 2 of the Canadian Indoor Eastern University Series (CIEUS) coming in second place. Lakehead’s first game was in the quarter-final against McMaster University. The Thunderwolves came out strong and displayed structured offense, beating McMaster 16-5. In the semi-finals, Lakehead played against Carleton University. Carleton’s height and strong defensive zone forced Lakehead to play their absolute best. The Thunderwolves were able to fight hard until the end and won 13-11. In their final game Lakehead faced their rivals Waterloo A University. The Thunderwolves played them in the previous tournament final and won, however, this time Waterloo came out and pushed Lakehead until the very end. The Warriors were able to get the last point after a constant back and forth, with the final score 15-14 for Waterloo. Once again Michaela Bohunicky and Katie Gilmor’s strong defensive played a critical role in Lakehead’s success. Captain Jasmine Ferdousi topped stats for assists with 18, while Lindsay Edward had one of her best tournaments in contributing 17 goals, 7 assists, and 9 defensive blocks.
Everyone on the team played their best and their coach and captain Jasmine Ferdousi stated, “We gave it our all this weekend but unfortunately came up short. We are going to use this as a learning experience for our next and last tournament.”
The Lakehead Women’s Ultimate team will next travel to Waterloo for the last and final indoor tournament. This tournament will contribute to the point system ranking and determine the winner of the CIEUS.
