UNBC Timberwolves have weekend struggles at UBC

The UNBC Timberwolves started what will be a lengthy stay away from the Prince George campus, starting a two week road trip this weekend past, with back to back games at the UBC gym against the storied Thunderbird program.

The ladies held their own through the first half of their Friday night match up, but some second half lapses allowed the Thunderbirds to take charge of the game and secure the 79- 58 victory.

Saturday night provided  for much the same result, as UBC defeated the Timberwolves 84-58 on the strength of a dominating second quarter, though the Prince George squad battled back in the second half, keeping a bit more pace with the UBC attack through the third and fourth quarters.

For Prince Rupert's Sarah Robin, Friday and Saturday night provided for 40 minutes of playing time, with 7 points on the board Friday, on Saturday she saw 31 minutes of play putting 14 points on the score sheet the second highest of the UNBC totals on the night.

The Men's team didn't fare much better, they dropped a 99 to 79 decision on Friday night and in the back end of the weekend doubleheader they were defeated by the T Birds by a score of 86 to 65.

The UNBC Men and Women next see action this weekend when they hit the prairies.

With a Friday night game set for the University of Saskatchewan at Saskatoon, on Saturday they head into Alberta and a match up with the Golden Bears at the University of Alberta in Edmonton.

Video webcasting of the matches can be found on the CanadaWest TV portal.
