Regina rallies to clip Cascades

The University of Regina Cougars defeated the UFV women 74-66 Saturday night to sweep a two-game Canada West regular season series.

The Cascades came out strong in this one, quickly building a double digit lead (11) after one quarter.

UFV continued to play well in the second quarter, and went into halftime with a seven point cushion.

Mission’s Aieisha Luyken led the Cascades with 12 first half points.

The roof fell in in the third quarter as the Cougars outscored the Cascades 22-13 to take a two point lead into the final frame.

Regina held off a last minute rally by UFV to earn their 15th Canada West win of the regular season.

“We competed well this weekend, we just had tough results,” said UFV head coach Al Tuchscherer.

Chilliwack’s Sarah Wierks led UFV with 15 points and 16 total rebounds.

Luyken finished with 14 points with Winnipeg’s Tessa Klassen adding 12 points and three assists. Nicole Wierks (Chilliwack) also hit double digits with 10 points, and the Cascades pulled down 49 rebounds in the game.

UFV’s record falls to 8-10, which leaves them tied with the University of Calgary Dinos for seventh place in the Canada West standings.
