For their third week of OUA season action Laurentian faced off against the 0-3 Brock Badgers on home court. 

 

After being outscored by double digits in the first half of the game, the Voyageurs came out strong in the third quarter, outscoring their opponents 22-15. However, this energy fell in the final minutes, ultimately resulting in a 75-60 victory for the Badgers.

 

A key determinant in the Voyageurs loss appeared to be the number of shots they were able to get up. Though shooting percentage was comparable between the two teams across the board, Brock out-shot Laurentian by 40%.

 

Leading contributor for Laurentian was fifth year guard Emily Tinnes who tallied 18 points and five assists in the match as she shot 55% from the three point line.

 

Leading scorer for the Badgers was Melissa Tatti with a game high 21 points. 

 

The Voyageurs will look to shake this loss off as they prepare for tomorrow's game, where they'll match up against the McMaster Marauders in the Ben Avery Gymnasium at 6pm.
