Women's Basketball - Game Report

Hi Folks,

We managed to squeak out a win against the University of Quebec at Montreal (UQAM), 57-54. It was a tight game throughout – the largest lead by either team was 7. They are a very quick and physical (particularly on the ball) team. Their pressure caused us a number of problems, leading to 27 turnovers in the game. Rebounding was another concern as UQAM grabbed 21 rebounds off our glass. On the positive side, we managed to weather-the-storm as UQAM took the lead with only 2 minutes to go in the game, but we were able to make a couple of adjustments to regain the lead and hang on.

We had 4 players in double digits (which is encouraging), with Jenny Wright leading the way with 19 points and 8 boards. Robyn Pearson dropped 12 points to go with her 6 boards, while Liz Boag added 11 points and Maria Gill went an impressive 5 for 5 to record her 10 points.

Friday/Saturday also marked our 28th Annual Tricolour Basketball Tournament for High School Senior Girls. Our players organize and run the tournament and did a fine job. Congratulations to North Park (Brantford) for capturing the Gold medal with 42-27 win over Waterloo-Oxford. Regi (Kingston) captured the Bronze medal with a 50-30 win over St. Theresa (Belleville).
