(WINDSOR, ON) – Leighton Speechley-Price led the way for the Lancers as they dominated their match against Waterloo and earned a 6-0 victory at Alumni Field on Friday evening. Speechley-Price’s three goals were scored on just three shots, the first one coming in the 13th minute.

Just 3 minutes later, Jack Sargent put Windsor up by two as the Lancers controlled the play at both ends of the pitch. Kyle Vizirakis, one of six Windsor Stars on the Lancers’ roster, kept the score sheet clear, making two saves on attempts by Waterloo’s Nicholas Karavanas.

Michael Pio, another Star, notched two for Windsor, giving the Lancers a 4-nil lead by the 36th minute, then Speechley-Price netted his second for a 5-0 lead at half time.

Speechley-Price completed the hat trick in the 56th minute. Waterloo responded with three substitutions, but to no avail.

The two sides traded opportunities through the remaining 35 minutes as Windsor eased into their third win of the season.

On Sunday, the Lancers hosted the Laurier Golden Hawks at Alumni Field. For the second match in three days, Vizirakis kept a clean sheet as Windsor sent the Hawks packing by a score of 2-0.

Again Speechley-Price opened the scoring, just before the end of the first half, in the 43rd minute. The Lancers continued the attack after the break and swarmed the Laurier goal. Sargent, Marco Bernabo, and Iyowuna Jumbo all forced saves by Jovan Brudiu before Kyle Ruggaber found the back of the net.

Windsor would direct 11 of 17 shots on goal by the end of the match. By the final whistle, the Lancers had a share of 1st place in the OUA West Division and a record of 4-1-1.

They will now welcome Algoma to Alumni Field for two games next weekend. Kick off will be at 3:00 pm both days.
