I have been noting that the Brock Badgers (for men’s and women’s hoops) are talented and scrappy, and last night’s game against the Warriors was no different for the women.
Despite being out-rebounded 47–35, the Badgers shot a decent percentage and forced forty turnovers in 75–48 thrashing in St. Catharines Wednesday night.
Every Badger player scored at least one field goal, with Whitney Gorges leading with 13 points. Forward Hayley Neal scored 12 points on 55 per cent shooting.
Quick quiz question for you: which Badger player led the team in steals last night? If you said Emily McKay, you get a gold star! She swiped for seven steals.
The Badgers (7–2) are now a game behind the Mustangs (8–1) in the OUA west.
Wednesday also had a couple other games going on in the west division. Those very Mustangs, on home court, snatched a 57–54 game from the 7-2 Lancers. The game was a defensive gem, with both teams scoring on less than 35 per cent on the game. The Mustangs, outscored in the first and last quarters, rode the momentum of Jacklyn Seife’s 23 point, 5 rebound performance.
In a losing cause, the Lancers won the rebound battle (34–30) and scored more assists—nine, compared the Mustangs’ seven.
As well, the Golden Hawks’ beat the undermanned Marauders 60–50 in Hamilton. Evenly matched throughout the night, the Hawks took advantage of the Marauders’ short bench, outscoring them 15–4.
Hawks guard Renata Remczyk led all scorers with 17 points and nine rebounds.
