Florida wasn’t that bad for the Lakehead Thunderwolves after all.

Sarah Gordon led the women’s basketball team for a second straight outing, powering home 20 points as the Wolves edged Indian River College 69-65 on Thursday night.
Not that this one was easy.

Trailing by 11 with seven minutes to go in the first half, the Wolves hit six straight shots to start the second half, sparked by an Emily Ross three-pointer, to go up 11 before the quarter was out.

Indian River then took over, taking a three point lead after a fourth-quarter barrage, but Gordon calmly sunk a trey, one of five she hit on the night, to even the score and Lakehead cruised from there on in.

Tasia McKenna had 10 points and 10 assists for the Wolves, who got 11 points from Darcy Zinck and nine from Lacey McNulty.

"This is a huge win for our program. We developed as a team and learned what it takes to play at a high level both offensively and defensively. Our offensive execution was top notch and we played great defense against some very skilled players,” said LU coach Jon Kreiner in a release. “Overall I am very happy with our two games against two top USA opponents.”
