In Lakehead-Bishops games, Lakehead averted disaster in a narrow 78-77 win, after having a comfortable lead for most of the game evaporate in the 4th quarter.

Leading scorers for Lakehead were Lindsay Druery with 18 points and 5 rebounds, while Lacey McNulty had 14 points to go with 10 rebounds. Bishops was led by Katy Germain and Jessy Roy with 15 points each.

Coach Jon Kreiner:

 "We played our best quarter of basketball this year in the 2nd quarter, when we limited them to 8 after giving up 20 in the first. In the second half, Bishops stepped up and began to dictate the pace of the game, and we hung in there, but couldn't execute down the stretch the way we did in the 2nd quarter. We'd like to get that kind of execution for 40 minutes".

Tomorrow's match ups feature Bishops and Winnipeg @ 6 pm, followed by Lakehead and Laurentian @ 8 pm.
