Algonquin strikes back maintaining their undefeated 7-0 mark on the season.

The Algonquin Thunder men’s basketball team pulled away from the Loyalist Lancers in teh second half of their Nov. 19 match-up to take the game 90-66.

Algonquin mantained a lead throughout the first half, but Loyalist closed the gap in the last five minutes narrowing the lead to seven going into the halftime break.

The Thunder appeared the quicker team all night, using the fast break well, to run up the score in the closing stages of the second.

Njuguna Waiganjo led the Thuder in scoring with 21 points.

He is averaging 18 points a game to top the team.

The Lancers Trevor Mayer performed well by racking up 16 points and  going four for four in foul in shooting in the second half.

The game was delayed momentaily when Loyalist player Calvin Chevannes went down hard after a play under the basket. He was attended to by the team’s coaching staff and walked off the court.

The win prolongs the Thunder’s undefeated status, pushing them to 7-0 on the season and setting them in first place in the OCAA men’s basketball standings.

The Lancer’s record goes to 2-3.

Despite the win, Thunder coach Trevor Costello was critical of his team’s performance.

“[It was a] terrible defensive effort out there,” Costello said. “I’m not satisfied with that. We’re not going to win any championships with that kind of play.”

Costello was also not happy with his team’s foul shooting. The Thunder went 13 for 18 from the free-throw line.

The two teams will meet again Feb. 12 at Loyalist College.
