The No. 1 ranked women’s basketball team lost their first game of the season on Saturday afternoon 60-53 to the No. 8 ranked Laurier Golden Hawks at the St. Denis Centre.

Windsor is now 9-1 on the season, while the Hawks improve to 10-1 and jump ahead of the Lancers in the OUA west division standings. The Lancers, however, have one game in hand of the Golden Hawks.

The loss also marks the Lancers first loss on home court since November 2010, when they fell to the Toronto Varsity Blues in their season opener.

The game was an even match for most of the contest and in just about all statistical categories, but the visitors shot an impressive 71.4% from the three point line, while the Blue & Gold shot only 18.2%. The Laurier defense was also on fire in the second and third quarters, keeping the four-time defending champions to single digits in each frame.

Windsor was led by Korissa Williams with 19 points and 7 rebounds, while Laurier’s Kaitlyn Schenck also had 19 points for the Hawks.

The Lancers return to the court next weekend when they host the Carleton Ravens (6-4) on Friday night and the Ottawa Gee Gees (6-4) on Saturday. Both games will tip-off at 6:00pm and can be seen live at www.oua.tv.
