(WINDSOR, ON) – In a closely fought battle, the Windsor Express managed to out-last the London Lightning, at the WFCU Arena last night, by a score of 92-91. The home side was able to prevail despite trailing with just 7 seconds left to play. It was the 5th time in 5 games that Windsor has kept their opponents under 100 points.
The winning streak was maintained thanks in part to a last second drive to the basket by Quinnel Brown. The 2nd year Express forward muscled his way through traffic in the key and put up the winning basket in dramatic fashion. Brown’s basket capped off a double-double of 13 points and 10 boards on the night.
Windsor also received 21 points from starting centre DeAndre Thomas and a further 14 from new-comer Ryan Anderson. In total, six different Express players shot in the double digits including a unique double-double from former Lightning guard Tony Bennett, who had 13 points and 13 assists.
The win for Windsor evens the season series between the two teams, thus far, at 1-1, but the lifetime record favours the Express at 10-8. They’ll go head to head again this Sunday in London before Windsor returns home to face Moncton on November 26 at 7:00 pm. Windsor will be bringing a 3-0 home record into the game against the Miracles.
