(SAINT JOHN, NB) – Stefan Bonneau went off for 32 points and the Windsor Express won for the second time on their East Coast swing, passing Saint John 115-108 on Saturday night.

Windsor (11-5) came out flying, scoring 36 points in the first quarter and taking a 12 point lead into the half, but things got dicey in the fourth quarter as the Mill Rats (9-6) fought back to eventually take a lead before the Express hopped on top for good.

A big turning point came with one minute left in the game and Windsor up 105-104, when Quinnel Brown was fouled and a technical was called against Mill Rats Head Coach, Rob Spon. Windsor extended their lead to four on the sequence and never looked back.

Brown kept his hot streak going with 22 points and DeAndre Thomas muscled his way to 8 rebounds and 20 points.

Due to a heavy winter storm, Windsor’s game on Sunday, in Charlottetown, was postponed. It is expected to be played tonight at 7:00 pm.

The next Windsor home game is Friday, December 20, when the Halifax Rainmen visit the WFCU Centre for a 7:00 pm start.
