The tension was high at George Brown College (GBC) as the women’s basketball team went head to head with Seneca Sting for their season opener.

The name of the game was hardball.

The Sting set out to defeat the Huskies and they did just that. With a final score of 59-51, the Huskies put up a good fight with point and shooting guard, Cori Brown being a top scorer for the game with 16 points scored.

Seneca is well known for their aggressive play, Talita Campbell, a third year student in the business management program said, “we’ve seen them before so aggressive play didn’t really bother us, it’s nothing new.”

“We have to stay consistent,” said Campbell. “We have to play as a team.”

The crowd at the Alex Barbier gym was full of people from students to parents and friends that came to support. The women’s Huskies did not disappoint the crowd that night, ending the first period with a less than appealing score of 23-9 with the Sting on top.

The Huskies were keen on keeping the Sting on their feet as they managed to catch up at the end of the half with a score of 32-25 with the Sting making a basket at the buzzer.

The excitement level at GBC was high entering the last period of the game with a score of 41-39, with the Huskies inching their way to the top. The excitement was contagious from the crowd as onlookers were unsure as to which team would walk home with the win.

Unfortunately for the Huskies, they walked away from the season opener without the W. Hopefully things will look up for the Huskies as they face Algonquin College at Alex Barbier gym on Nov. 1.

All proceeds from the both women’s and men’s basketball game are going to the Rethink Breast Cancer, a young women’s breast cancer movement.
