Mac women advance to division final

rp_primary_Brock___MAC__W__7The McMaster women’s basketball team got 30 points from freshman phenom Danielle Boiago and defeated the Brock Badgers, 73-67, in Ontario University Athletics West Division semi-final play in St. Catharines on Saturday (Feb. 23).

The Marauders led for almost the entire game holding a 26-16 lead after one quarter and up 40-37 at the half.

Brock clawed its way back to get within a point at 68-67, but Boiago drained a trey with 30.1 seconds left to make it a two possession game, and then hit two late free throws to clinch the win after Brock failed twice to score.

Along with Boiago’s 30, McMaster got 16 points from Hailey Milligan, 11 from Vanessa Bonomo, and 10 from Liz Burns.

McMaster moves on to next weekend’s West division final against either Windsor or Western. They were scheduled to play Saturday evening.
