REGINA COUGARS (72) TRINITY WESTERN SPARTANS (51)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NO. 3 REGINA KNOCKS OFF SPARTANS


LANGLEY, British Columbia – The No. 3 ranked Regina Cougars came into Langley Friday night and put on an impressive show as they waltzed to a 72-51 win against the host Trinity Western Spartans.

The heavily favoured Cougars used 50.0 per cent field goal shooting and a 36-28 rebounding advantage to improve their record to 5-0 on the season and keep the Spartans, now 1-6, from their first home court win. 

“Regina’s such a good team,” said Spartans coach Cheryl Jean-Paul. “They have great systems. They know each other very well. They play well together. So every time you lose focus or you lose your check, that’s going to be a score for them and they did shoot the ball very well.

“We just go on scoring droughts. As soon as we realize we’re down by a certain amount of points, instead of focusing on getting a good stop and then a good score, we seem to lose our minds a little bit. We just focus on offence and forget we have to get a good stop to make sure the lead doesn’t broaden.”

The game started confidently for TWU as they stayed with the Cougars for the better part of the first quarter. With quality shots and good rebounding on their side, the Spartans were tied with Regina 17-17 in the latter stages of the opening frame.

But then, the offensively potent Cougars went to work, capitalized on turnovers and took off on a 9-0 run to end the first quarter, racing to a 26-17 lead at the end of the frame.

And in the second quarter, things didn’t turn any brighter for TWU as the Cougars, led by Joanna Zalesiak and Lindsay Ledingham (both with 10 points in the first half), shot 54.8 per cent from the field, going 17 for 31, en route to a 45-26 halftime lead.

The Spartans actually took one more shot than Regina in the opening half, 32, but only sunk nine field goals for a 28.1 shooting percentage from the field.

In the third quarter, the Cougars continued to push their lead beyond the Spartans, led by Gabreille Gheyssen who had five points and one rebound, taking a 60-35 lead into the final 10 minutes.

While the Cougars did maintain a large lead until the final horn, TWU did well in the fourth quarter as they managed to outscore Regina 16-12 and walk off the court with some confidence heading into Saturday’s rematch.

“It’s getting better,” Jean-Paul said. “From last weekend to this weekend it was a definite improvement in going after the little things but it’s just frustrating because we can't piece enough of those things together to get on a run.”

For the Spartans, it was Olsen leading the way with 15 points while Emily Knauff added 10 points. Corina Reimer, who got the start and played 21 minutes, led TWU on the glass with eight rebounds.

The Cougars were once again led by Canada West leading scorer Joanna Zalesiak, who had 16 points, and Anne Mercer and Carly Graham, who both had 13 points. Zelesiak also led the team with six assists and three steals, while Lindsay Ledingham was the team leader with seven rebounds.

The Cougars and Spartans tip-off Saturday at 5:00 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre.

Game Notes - The Spartans shot 33.3 per cent from three-point range compared to 29.4 per cent from Regina…TWU's Janelle Traber had a game-high two blocks…TWU was 10 for 12 from the free throw line while Regina was 13 for 24.
