‘Wolves Fall to Sharp Shooting Badgers

Hugh Mullally | Basketball (W)

Despite some solid defensive stands, the women’s basketball team fell victim to some deadly three-point shooting, losing 73-64 to the Brock Badgers.

The first quarter started with Brock running out to a 13-4 lead, as the ‘Wolves struggled to find their rhythm early. Some three-pointers from Cass Soulias, Katelyn Andrea and Blair McNaughton helped to stem the tide, with Lakehead pulling within three, 22-19 after 10 minutes.

B_OReilly_v_BrockLakehead came out with renewed purpose in the second frame, going on a 16-3 run to take a 35-23 lead. Brock’s coach was assessed a technical foul with 4:27 remaining, which lit a fire under his players, who hit four straight three’s, the first by Kayla Santilli from about six feet behind the arc.

Lakehead’s offense was limited to one layup by Katelyn Andrea through the final 5 minutes of the half. Andrea had 8 points and 10 rebounds after playing the entire first half, as she was assigned to guard Brock all-star Kate Harpur. Andrea would finish with 11 points and 13 rebounds, while Harpur also had a double-double with 14 points and 15 boards.

Lakehead locked down on D once again in the third, holding the Badgers scoreless through the first 6 and a half minutes. Once they started scoring, they came in bunches, to the tune of 15 in the remainder of the quarter, capped by a buzzer beating three to put Brock up 52-50.

The Badgers kept on rolling in the fourth, and kept the ‘Wolves at bay. Bridget O’Reilly hit a three to pull Lakehead to within 5 points, (65-60) with three minutes left but it wasn’t enough.

Brock finished the game 10-of-21 (47%) from behind the arc, with Kayla Santilli and Melissa Tatti hitting seven of those. Tatti scored a game-high 18 points.

Coach Jon Kreiner:

“Tough one tonight. Thought we came out the right way and built two nice leads in both halves but in the end we made a few too many errors and didn’t knock down some good looks and easy bunnies to beat a top 10 team. The crowd was super tonight and we are looking forward to a rematch at the Meridian Centre tomorrow.”

The women’s team will rematch against the Badgers tomorrow evening at the Meridian Centre at 5pm.

All Lakehead parents, alumni and fans at the games tomorrow are welcome to join Lakehead Athletics Director Tom Warden at the club level in the Meridian Centre for a social event before and during the games.
