It took top ranked Windsor a little longer to discipline their talented (11-9) McMaster underclassmen on the court.  In the end the lesson resulted in another double digit blow out by the #1 ranked Lancers who came out on top 80-51.  

“We only keep running up the score because we know we are going to play tougher teams down the stretch in the OUA and CIS championship playoffs,” said Lancers head coach Chantal Vallee.

All Canadian centre Jessica Clemencon agreed.

“We don’t really aim to run the score up to 100 points or so, we just aim to play hard for forty minutes,” said Clemencon.

With a better effort in the second half the Lancers came out on top 90-51 overtop of the unranked Marauders.

Clemencon topped all scorers with 24 points, followed by team mate Miah Langlois with 21 and Korissa Williams who had 16 points. Jocelyn Larocque at seven key points and Tessa Kreiger raked in several key rebounds. Only two Marauders scored in double figures, Hailey Milligan with 14 points and Danielle Boiago had 11 points.

Kreiger only scored a few points but did it with a Clemencon flare.

“I learned everything I know from “France,”’ said Kreiger. “I actually used to use similar post moves in high school but we go hard at each other in practice so it is finally helping me to also apply them at this level as well.”

“I haven’t instructed Jessica to mentor Tessa, nor Miah and Korissa to mentor our guards, but I have asked them to provide us with the leadership we need to win,” said Vallee. “So it’s nice to hear that it appears they have chosen to mention our younger players, Tessa and Cheyanne Roger.”

The Lancers will close out the season with a pair on the road against the Waterloo Warriors and Brock Badgers, before returning to the St. Denis Centre for OUA playoff action. Schedules to be determined.
