WATERLOO, Ont. (January 14, 2012)- The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks (8-4) saw their four-game winning streak come to an end Saturday night as they lost the second half of a weekend doubleheader to the Lakehead Thunderwolves (7-5) by a score of 65-61.

Carolyn Fragale of Thunder Bay, Ont., led the Thunderwolves with 16 points, who as a team shot 47.3 percent (26-of-55) from the floor compared to the Hawks, who shot just 30.8 percent (20-of-65).

After Laurier won the opener on Friday night, Lakehead seemed determined from the opening tip-off to earn the win in game two. They jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead and despite a strong rally late in the quarter by the Hawks, held a 17-15 advantage after 10 minutes.

The Thunderwolves would pull away from Laurier in the second quarter, scoring 19 points to the Hawks 11 as they led 36-26 at the half.

Not to be deterred, the purple and gold put together their best quarter in the third as they shutdown Lakehead defensively and climbed to within five heading into the fourth. However, every time the Hawks made a run, the Thunderwolves had a response in the final quarter and held on to take the game and earn a split in the weekend doubleheader.

Felicia Mazerolle of Elliot Lake, Ont., and Laura Doyle of Guelph, Ont., paced the Hawks with 13 points each while Christa Mancino of Port Colborne, Ont., also reach double-digits with 10 points.

"Lakehead came out with a lot more intensity then we did and we were worried about that," commented Head Coach PAUL FALCO following the Hawks second loss on home court. "I was pleased with the way we battled back. I thought we gave a strong fourth quarter but we just didnt get it done in the end."

Laurier will now head out on the road for three straight contests beginning with a trip to Guelph on Wednesday night to face the Gryphons. Tipoff is set for 6 p.m.
