A very disappointing performance against McMaster, left us with a 45-74 loss – our first double digit loss in league play this season. Both teams struggled to find the bottom of the net early in the game, going more than 3 minutes before the first score (by McMaster) and more than 5 minutes before we broke the ice. We ended up shooting 5-20 in the first quarter (25%), managing only 12 points (equaled by Mac). Then the game went askew – Mac shot 12-19 in the second quarter, while we shot 3-20, and were outscored 26-9. We continued to be outscored in the third and fourth quarter, 17-11 and 19-13 respectively. McMaster scored 19 points off our turnovers, and had 21 second chance points (dominating us on the boards). Gemma Bullard was our lone player in double digits scoring with 11 points, while Robyn Pearson grabbed 12 boards.
We sit in second place in our division with a 9-6 record, only 1 game ahead of Toronto. We host the first and second place teams in the Northern Division (Ottawa & Carleton), before completing the regular season on the road against Division rivals, Toronto & Ryerson.
With Saturday being our last regular season home game, we will be honouring our graduating athletes (Liz Boag, Gemma Bullard & Jenny Wright) immediately following our game against Ottawa. At half time of that game, we will be honouring the parents of our entire team.

Saturday, February 14 vs. Ottawa 6pm (Graduating Athlete Night)
Up Next on the Road:
Friday, February 20 @ Ryerson 6pm
