Gryphon hoops women square record with win

SUDBURY – The Guelph Gryphons turned aside a late charge by the Laurentian Voyageurs to claim their second consecutive OUA women’s basketball league victory with a 63-54 victory Friday night at Laurentian’s Ben Avery Gymnasium.

The Gryphs had an 11-point lead in the first minute of the fourth quarter, but the Voyageurs chipped away to reduce the margin to three points with two minutes to play before the Guelph side scored the final six points of the match.

Guelph led 19-14 at the end of the first quarter, 31-29 at halftime and 48-39 at the end of the third quarter.

Team stats were fairly even as the Gryphs sank one more basket than the Voyageurs and took one more shot. The Gryphs hit 85 percent of their free throws while Laurentian hit 58 percent.

Skyla Minaker led the Gryphs with 22 points while Burke Bechard had 14, Megan Brenkel 10 and Ivana Vujadinovic eight. Bechard grabbed nine rebounds while Quincy Sickles-Jarvis had eight and Ashley Wheeler six. Bechard also had five steals while Sickles-Jarvis had three assists and two blocks.

L’Ashante Henry hit for 18 points for Laurentian while Mackenzie Robinson had 13 and Emily Tinnes 12. Henry had 13 rebounds while Tinnes had five assists and three steals and Robinson had five steals.

The Gryphs even their record at 4-4 with the win, good for a tie for fifth in the West Division. Laurentian is eighth in the East at 1-5.

The Gryphs are to play the Nipissing Lakers (2-4) at North Bay Saturday at 6 p.m. and host the Queen’s Gaels (6-1) at the Guelph Gryphons Athletics Centre Friday to complete the 2017 portion of their schedule.

After that game the Gryphs will have 14 games left on their regular-season schedule, all against West Division rivals.
