TORONTO – Shooting woes plagued the Lakehead Thunderwolves on Saturday night, stymieing any hope of hitting the second half of the season on a two-game winning streak.

The women’s basketball team hit just 30 per cent from the field, including just three-of-22 shots from beyond the arc, and fell 68-53 to the host University of Toronto Varsity Blues.

Lakehead, led by Ally Burke’s 19-point effort, slipped to 3-7 on the season.

Kelly-Ann Coulombe continued her strong rookie campaign, scoring eight points and hauling in a dozen rebounds.

The Quebec native is tied for top spot in the OUA, averaging 11.1 rebounds per night.

Lakehead trailed by three at the half, but were outscored 37-25 in the third and fourth quarters.

Ellen Ougrinov led the Varsity Blues with 23 points.

The Thunderwolves next action comes on Jan. 5, when they welcome Laurentian to the Thunderdome.
