Rams net season high in win over Brock

By Andrea Elliott
ST. CATHARINES, Ont. - The Ryerson Rams women's basketball team scored a season-high 91 points to defeat the Brock Badgers 91-75 on Friday night at the Meridian Centre.

BOXSCORE

The Rams received double-double efforts from Sofia Paska (22 points, 10 rebounds) and Kellie Ring (13 points, 10 assists) to lead the way while freshman forward Bronwyn Williams turned in one of her best efforts with a new career-high 14 point night. 

In front of an enthusiastic crowd at the Meridian Centre the two teams provided an entertaining and tightly contested first half of play. The hometown Badgers eked out a 22-21 advantage through ten minutes before the Rams started to buckle down on defence.

Ryerson outscored Brock 22-17 in the second quarter to hold a 43-39 halftime lead.

The Rams put their foot down in the third quarter and held Brock to just 12 points while also finding their rhythm offensively and hitting some three point shots. Ryerson piled up 28 points in the frame to take a commanding 71-51 lead into the fourth.

With the outcome essentially decided, the Rams were able to provide their bench with some more minutes in the fourth and they wrapped up the 16 point victory.

Ryerson guard Cara Tiemens returned to action for the first time since January 13 against Queen's and finished with seven points, three rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes. 

Brock was missing their leading scorer in Kira Cornelissen who averages 20 points per game, and used just eight players in this one. Melissa Tatti finished with a game-high 24 points in the losing effort.

Ryerson improves to 11-3 on the season and stays in second place in the OUA East division while Brock falls to 4-9 and remain tied for second in the Central. The Rams are back in action on Wednesday, February 1 when they host the York Lions at the Mattamy Athletic Centre.
