(MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO) The Windsor Express had their five game winning streak snapped Wednesday night, falling 99-88 to the Mississauga Power.
The Power (6-8) outworked Windsor (9-5) early, taking a nine point lead after the first quarter and extending that to 15 at halftime. Windsor’s struggles from the bench continued, as the subs shot 0-for-4 for the day, failing to register a point in the game.
The Express tightened the game to four points in the third, but Mississauga withheld the pressure and kept their lead to the end. Darren Duncan dropped 21 points in the loss, dishing out 10 assists in the process.
Chris Commons and Stefan Bonneau each added 19 assists.
The team will now fly to Halifax to face the Rainmen at 7:00 pm, and starting an east coast swing of three games in four days.
The next Windsor home game is Friday, December 20, when the Halifax Rainmen visit the WFCU Centre for a 7:00 pm start.
Tickets are available at the TekSavvy Box Office in the WFCU Centre or by phone at 1-866-969-WFCU.
