(WINDSOR, ON) – For an opening day, Windsor’s tilt against the visiting Western Mustangs left much to be desired. But, there were some glimmers of good in the 76-7 loss.
First the bad; just 11 first downs, a measly 188 yards of total offense, just 4 completions between two quarterbacks and 31 yards passing.
The first three quarters was all Western as they dominated the play, led by QB Will Finch. For their part, Windsor couldn’t put together any offensive momentum under either Casey Wright or Liam Putt. It is no surprise that the Lancers scored their only touchdown on the ground, a 1-yard rumble by RB Tarrence Crawford, in the 4th quarter.
The Lancer defense, despite the score, showed some semblance of balance. DB Spencer Trinier made a sack and he and DB Matt Gayer combined for three tackles for a loss of yards.
Head Coach Joe D’Amore has a week to sort the team out before they head to Toronto for Labour Day to take on the Varsity Blues, who lost to McMaster 55-33 on Sunday.
