Rookie Webber Impresses Despite Narrow Defeat

The women’s basketball team seems to have a new star every game in the early going, and despite a 71-66 loss to the Winnipeg Wesmen, there was a notice served from rookie Rachel Webber: She’s for real.

The rookie from Ancaster, Ontario was an assist and 2 rebounds shy of a triple-double, scoring 13 points against the Wesmen in their home gym.

“Tonight was an exciting, high paced game,” said coach Jon Kreiner. “Rachel Webber was unbelievable tonight and Gill Lavoie had the best game of her career.”

Lavoie scored 10 points on 5-of-8 shooting and pulled down 6 rebounds.

Lakehead led after the first quarter, 20-18, but found themselves trailing at halftime 35-32.

As was the case in the two previous games between Lakehead and Winnipeg, neither team could string enough good possessions together to establish a lead. The game was tied 66-66 with 2:20 remaining, and the Wesmen would go on a 5-0 run to end to game.

Lakehead’s downfall could have been their nine missed free throws (9-18 FT total), or possibly their 25 turnovers (quoted Lakehead bench stats conflicted with those of the official boxscore).

Kreiner added, “It was our third game in a row vs Winnipeg and both teams went after each other from the word go. We had almost 100 possessions each, although we were down most of the game we found a way to tie it late, but couldn’t finish it off.”

Lakehead continues at the BOB FM shootout tomorrow at 8:00pm vs. the Canadian Mennonite University.

Rachel Webber 15-16
