Cham­ber­land’s 16 points led all scor­ers, as she went 3-for-9 from the field and 9-for-12 from the freethrow line.

The Gaiters led through most of the first half

and led by as many as eight points in the sec­ond quar­ter be­fore tak­ing a 35-30 ad­van­tage in to the half­time in­ter­val.

In ad­di­tion to Cham­ber­land’s 16, Bishop’s (10-15, 10-14 CIS, 5-7 Que­bec) got ten points from Jessy Roy (Val d’or, Que.), while Danna Jan­vier (Laval, Que.) added nine points and eight re­bounds.
