WATERLOO, Ont. (from Waterloo Warriors) — Ann Stewart (Yellowknife) was unstoppable in front of over 350 fans on Fantastic Alumni Day at the PAC putting up 21 points and nine rebounds, leading her Warriors to a 47-44 victory over the Brock Badgers.
Just one week ago the Warriors lost to the Badgers by 27, and the black and gold used that as fuel for today’s stellar performance, especially on the defensive side.
Brock shot just 21.9% from the field and committed 16 turnovers all forced by strong defence from the black and gold.
Stewart went 8-for-16 from the field and 5-for-6 from the line in her career-best game with Waterloo. Aphia Ward (Beaumont) chipped in with six points while Julia Pavlik (Waterloo), Hilary Ferguson (Cambridge) and Afifa Salad (Cambridge) all put up five.
Sydney Wilson (Guelph) hit the game-winning basket late in the contest with a nice drive down the lane to seal the 3-point victory.
The Warriors are back in action on Wednesday in Hamilton against the McMaster Marauders before taking on Guelph in their final home contest of the year on Friday night.
