Sunday Oct 31 marked the final tune-up for the team as they prepare to open OUA interlock play against Ryerson and Toronto this coming weekend in the T-dot.
Yesterday's action saw the Thunderwolves travel to Ely, Minnesota to play 6 X 10 minute quarters against Vermillion Community College and legendary coach Paul MacDonald (Kevin McHale's high school rival!). VCC is also the alma mater of Venzal Russell who returned to his former stomping grounds to help L.U. win all 6 games against a young VCC team. The team travelled without starters Yoosrie Salhia and Ryan Thomson who are finishing up a 2 week rehab stint as well as Cam Hornby who is the team's second leading scorer in the pre-season. Brendan King and Matthew Schmidt led the way for Lakehead in the scrimmage holding a size advantage in the paint. All 12 of the 'Wolves on the travel roster enjoyoed significant minutes with everyone touching the score sheet.
This weekend the team opens play @ the University of Toronto on Friday night. Stay tuned for a weekend preview coming out later in the week.
