Lancers Defeat U of T

(TORONTO, ON) – Led by a strong performance from kicker Robert Eeuwes, the Lancer Football team defeated the Toronto Varsity Blues 26-17 on Monday night at Varsity Stadium in Toronto.

With the victory, the Lancers move to 1-1 in conference play.

On Monday night, Windsor took a comanding 10-0 lead after the first quarter thanks to an efficient offensive attack against the Varsity Blues. 

Early on, Lancer quarterback Sam Malian wasted no time finding receiver Cory Fernandes for a touchdown just three minutes into the game to put the Lancers up by seven. 

Four minutes later, kicker Rober Eeuwes sent his first of five field goals through the up-rights from 30 yards out to add to the Windsor lead, 10-0.

Eeuwes, a fifth year law student, continued his big night as he added to the lead in the second quarter, giving Windsor a 17-0 advantage heading into the half.

The Lancers would continue to add to their lead in the third quarter as they took a commanding 23-0 lead heading into the final quarter.

Toronto tried to mount a late charge as they scored 17 points in the final quarter, but it was not enough as the Lancers earned the 26-17 victory. 

The Lancer defense did an excellent job against the run game, as they held the Varisty Blues to a mere 33 rushing yards for the entire contest. Akeem Whonder and Brad Adams led the defense attack with 5 solo tackles a piece. 

Sam Malian had another strong game for Windsor as he completed 24 of 34 passes for 254 yards and a touchdown. Receiver Jordan Brescacin had a big night for the Lancers as he hauled in 13 catches for 118 yards.
