    Hutzler, Dally topple Ottawa to advance to CIS Regionals

    LONDON, Ont. - The Western Mustangs women's basketball team won fifth-
    place in the OUA with a 60-44 win over the Ottawa Gee-Gee's in Alumni Hall
    on Saturday afternoon.

    Matteke Hutzler won the battle of the paint against the OUA East player of the
    year Hannah Sunley-Paisley. Hutzler scored 21 points, four rebounds and four
    steals, while Sunley-Paisley had 16 points and four rebounds, well under her
    season average of 11.5 per game.

    Laura Dally and Beckie Williams were the other Mustangs in double-digits in
    scoring as Dally had 13 and Williams added 10 points. The Mustangs played
    excellent defence forcing 26 turnovers by Ottawa.

    The game got off to a slow start as neither team could find a rhythm
    offensively and each team traded fouls. The Mustangs and Gee-Gee's battled
    back-and-forth and Western held a slim 12-11 lead after the first quarter.

    The Mustangs stepped out the defensively pressure in the second quarter,
    alternating full-court and half-court defence to force a number of Ottawa
    turnovers. Western outscored the Gee-Gees 19-9 in the quarter to take a 31-
    20 halftime lead. The lead was due in part to Ottawa having 15 turnovers to
    just six for the Mustangs.

    The Mustangs saw a 13 point lead get cut to four points by Ottawa during the
    third quarter. Western responded to increase their lead and at the end of the
    third the Mustangs had a nine-point lead 41-35.

    Western opened up a double-digit lead 50-40 with 4:54 left in the game on a
    feed into the post to Hutzler. The Mustangs held Ottawa scoreless for the
    next three minutes of game action as Western extended their lead to 57-40.
    Each team would trade baskets in the final minute as the Mustangs won fifth
    place in the OUA with a 60-44 victory.

    The Mustangs will advance to a CIS regional tournament to play for a spot at
    the CIS Nationals in Windsor, Ont. on Mar. 18-20.

    City crews clearing snow. No roads closed due to flooding.

    City street plows are clearing the 5 cm to 7 cm of snow that fell overnight.
    Main streets and bus routes should be cleaned by early afternoon. Salt trucks
    will follow behind road plows.

    All sidewalk plows have started cleaning main street and bus route sidewalks.
    They will be working through the day to complete the plowing.

    There will be no plowing of local streets or sidewalks today as we are below
    the standard for plowing. This will be further assessed tomorrow.

    There are no roads closed due to flooding.

    The north and south branches of the Thames River peaked over night, along
    with Medway and Stoney Creeks over night. The North Branch flow is being
    controlled by Fanshawe Reservoir.

    Londoners are warned to be particularly cautious around stormwater
    management ponds. During spring thaw conditions, ice on frozen water
    bodies is unsafe. Stormwater management ponds are built to contain rain and
    melt waters. The ponds will generally fill from beneath the ice surface with
    warmer water and therefore changes in ice conditions are difficult to see and
    predict. People should stay away from the banks and ice surfaces of these
    ponds as well as banks of rivers and streams.

    The Upper Thames River Conservation Authority is closely monitoring weather
    conditions and watershed flows and will provide updates to the Municipal
    Flood Coordinator as required. As of early this week the UTRCA’s flood
    control reservoirs at Wildwood (Trout Creek near St. Mary’s), Pittock (Thames
    River in Woodstock), and Fanshawe (North Thames River in London) all have
    more than 95% of flood storage capacity.

    The UTRCA is one of 36 conservation authorities in Ontario. Their area of
    jurisdiction, the upper watershed of the Thames River, covers 3,432 sq km in
    southwestern Ontario and is home to approximately 485,000 people. The
    UTRCA monitors stream flow and meteorological conditions within the UTRCA
    watershed on a continual basis.

    The information is collected at several remote sites, and analyzed at the
    UTRCA's administration centre in London. Data are usually posted to the web
    site early each morning during low flow periods and more frequently during
    times of flooding.
