Abal­ance­dat­tack led the Mcgill Martlets to a come-from-be­hind vic­tory, 65-61, over the Bishop’s Gaiters in Que­bec univer­sity women’s bas­ket­ball league play tonight at the Love Com­pe­ti­tion Hall in Montreal. Mcgill had four play­ers in dou­ble fig­ures as they re­bounded from a 31-23 half­time deficit.

The Gaiters led by as many as ten points late in the sec­ond quar­ter, but Mcgill pulled back to tie the game at 32-32 early in the third. Mcgill led 44-42 af­ter 30 min­utes, but went on an 11-1 run early in the fourth to pull away, af­ter Jessy Roy, the Gaiters’ fifth-year point guard, left the game with a lower­body in­jury. She re­turned three min­utes later, and the Gaiters re­sponded with an 8-0 run to cut the gap to 57-53 with 3:45 left. How­ever, that was as close as Bishop’s got, as Mcgill made seven free throws down the stretch to seal the vic­tory.

“We worked hard for 40 min­utes,” said Gaiters’ Head Coach Alex Perno, “but un­for­tu­nately at crunch time we paid the price for not get­ting a cou­ple of key re­bounds. In the next ten games, we want to fo­cus on be­ing clutch.”

The Gaiters (7-12, 7-11 CIS, 2-4 Que­bec) were led by Gabrielle Chamberland (Sher­brooke, Que.), who scored 16 points, while Roy scored 13 and added a game-high four as­sists. Cather­ine Bélanger-pâ­quet (Que­bec City, Que.) led the Gaiters on the boards with eight, as the Gaiters out­re­bounded Mcgill 32-30.

Mcgill (8-10, 8-9 CIS, 4-3 Que­bec) was led by Françoise Charest’s 18 points, while Natalie Larocque added 15, with Dianna Ros chip­ping in 13 and Marie-ève Martin scor­ing 11, in­clud­ing a pair of fourth-quar­ter three-point­ers.

The Gaiters shot 35% from the field, but strug­gled from long range, as they went 4-for-24 (17%) on three-point shots. Mcgill hit 43% of their shots over­all, in­clud­ing go­ing 7-for-18 (39%) on three-point­ers.

The Gaiters re­turn to ac­tion on Fri­day, Jan­uary 20, as they visit the UQAM Ci­tadins in Montreal. Tipoff is set for 6 p.m. The Gaiters re­turn home on Satur­day, Jan­uary 21 as they host Laval.
