WOMEN'S BASKETBALL RESILIENT AGAINST VIKINGS

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL RESILIENT AGAINST VIKINGS

The Georgian Grizzlies women's basketball team opened up their second half of their OCAA regular season on Friday night when they travelled to take on the St. Lawrence Vikings in Kingston, ON.

It was a tight battle until a resilient Grizzlies squad pushed ahead late in the game thanks to a great effort by Kelsey Dunkeld.

The Barrie native had a team-high 17 points, including 10 of those points in the fourth quarter alone where she made five-out-of-six field goals to lead the Grizzlies to a 48-41 victory over the Vikings.

Dunkeld had a double-double for Georgian as she also posted 12 rebounds while teammate Cassidy Warren-Timpano (Barrie) had 10 points in the game.

Georgian has now won two straight games and improved their record to 3-7 on the season to sit in seventh in the OCAA east division standings but have now matched the win totals of the two teams ahead of them in the standings, St. Lawrence and the Loyalist Lancers.

Georgian will be back in action on Saturday afternoon as they wrap up their eastern road trip by playing the Loyalist Lancers in Belleville.

The Grizzlies will play their next home game on Saturday, Jan. 19 at the Georgian Athletic Centre in Barrie when they host the St. Lawrence Vikings at 1 p.m.

Tickets for the game are available at the doors for $5.
