The game was even more important for the Gee-Gees as they said goodbye to their star seniors—Cynthia Leblanc, Julia Francki, and Pilar Khoury along with role players Mélissa Pesant, and Elisabeth Wong.
After playing staunch defence for the final 15 minutes, the Gees secured their trip to the OUA final four.
The feel of this year’s team is remarkably different from past years. Nevertheless, the players are proving to triumph despite the team’s more youthful roster.
In the Gees’ swan song, veteran quarterback Derek Wendel had another defining performance, highlighting a record-shattering season that has become easily overlooked due to the team’s struggles.
