In the final game of the regular season for the Women's Ambrose Lions Basketball team, the Lions faced top ranked Olds College. Unfortunately for the Lions, a slow start eliminated any chance of an upset as after the first quarter the trailed by 21.
A large crowd came out to support the Lions in their last game. While no one on the roster was is graduating this year, the Lions took a moment to thank graduating assistant coach and former player, Daniella Matich.
The Lions struggled early on, turning the ball over a lot, which lead to many fast breaks and easy baskets for the Thibeaux sisters and Michaela Allen-Gullion.
Overall it was a very clean game with only 5 fouls were called on Olds, and 7 fouls were called on Ambrose all game. Both teams were forced to make shots from the field instead of living from the free throw line. Ambrose played again with a short bench (only 7 players) so they needed to, from the opening tip off, stay out of foul trouble or risk playing with an even shorter bench.
While the Lions 3 point shots weren't falling early, Avery Deighton and Tegan McArthur started heating up in the 2nd half, getting the Lions score up to a respectable number.
Player of the game awards were presented to Nya Gach and Michaela Allen-Gullion.
