TORONTO (Saturday, November 25) - On Friday night at the Goldring Centre in downtown Toronto, the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks women’s basketball team rallied from an eight-point halftime deficit to edge out the Toronto Varsity Blues 69-67.

Trailing 39-31 at the break, the Hawks flipped the switch in the second part of the game, producing several clutch performances down the stretch as they outscored the Blues 38-28 in the second-half.

Veteran guard Nicole Morrison (Hamilton) led the way for Laurier as she produced 20 points, five rebounds and three assists. Sarah Dillon (Welland, Ont.) had a season-high 14 points, while Jill Condron (Oakville, Ont.) added 12. For the third consecutive game, Irena Rynkiewicz (Mississauga, Ont.) rebounded in the double-digits. This time, the Mississauga native led the team with 11 boards, in addition to scoring five points. 

For Toronto, the pair of sharpshooter Keyira Parkes (Scarborough, Ont.) and front-court player Sarah Bennett (Toronto, Ont.) proved to be difficult to stop. Parkes led the way with 18 points, while Bennett picked up a double-double with a career-best 18 points and 12 rebounds. 

The Hawks had a successful day from the field, shooting 37.3 percent overall and 33.3 percent from behind the arc. In comparison, the Blues shot 29.4 percent from the field and 36.4 percent from the three-point line. 

Up next for the Hawks is a date with the Ryerson Rams. Tip-off is set for 6:00 pm, Saturday evening at Mattamy Athletic Centre. The game can be seen live on OUA.tv.
