(WINDSOR, ON) – With almost a laid back style, the Lancers had to work from behind to garner a season opening 87-69 win over the Guelph Gryphons at the St Denis Centre Saturday night. The women found themselves uncharacteristically behind 15-2 early on, en route to a 21-12 1st quarter deficit.
The Lancers turned the tables in the 2nd quarter as they out scored Guelph 31-11 and went to the half with a 43-32 lead. Windsor continued the domination into the 3rd frame but took their foot off the gas in the 4th as Guelph secured a 24-18 margin, but it was too little too late for the Gryphons.
As a team, Windsor enjoyed 70.6% shooting from beyond the arc on the strength of Carly Steer’s 7-for-8 from downtown. The 4th year senior from Holy Names led the Lancers with 25 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 steals.
Montreal’s Emily Prevost dropped 17 points, 7 boards, and 4 steals while rookie Jordan Gutt chipped in with 15.
The Lancers host Ryerson on Friday at 6pm and then turn around with Toronto on Saturday, also at 6pm.
