Pilots Flight Report: Women's Basketball - January 24 & 25

The Pilots entered the weekend sitting atop the NIAC standings alongside Canadian Mennonite University. In order for the Pilots to secure top spot in the conference, they needed a pair of wins this past weekend, which would set up a winner take all matchup with the Blazers in the final weekend of the Pilots regular season games.

PLAYER’S VIEW:
“We went into this weekend with a set of goals. We won our first game but weren’t happy with our performance, we know we need to be locked in as our regular season is coming to an end. Keeping that in mind, we went into Saturday’s game with a different mindset and as a team we pulled away with another win. We played better offence and defence during the second game and worked better as a team. It was a good weekend of games. We aren’t satisfied and will keep pushing and growing as the playoffs approach.” - Trinity Blair

PLAYER’S VIEW:
“After winning Friday’s game we weren’t satisfied. We knew we needed to play a lot better if we wanted to achieve our goals. We kept that in mind coming into the second game. We walked into the gym with a lot more focus and determination to be better than the day before. In the end we pulled off the win we wanted.” - Olivia Rempel
