(WINDSOR, ON) – The Lancers played a doubleheader against the UOIT Ridgebacks this past weekend as the teams faced off at South Windsor Arena. Windsor skated to a 8-3 Friday win before UOIT exacted revenge with a Saturday 3-1 win.

The Ridgebacks opened the scoring but Paul Bezzo tied the game at 13:29 to knot things up.

In the 2nd, Windsor let loose with a flurry of activity around the UOIT goal. The Lancers notched four unanswered goals as Steve Anthony and Dylan Seguin scored inside of 5 minutes. Bezzo snapped his second of the game before Eric Noel lit the light with his 4th goal of the young season.

The Ridgebacks showed they weren’t done yet by potting a shorthanded tally to cut the score to 5-2. Sebastian Beauregard and Brennan Feasey returned the favour for Windsor before UOIT slid a third goal past Lancers goalie Michael Doan.

Kyle Hope netted his 3rd of the year to round out the scoring.

The two teams went back at it on Saturday. Julian Luciani opened the scoring at 6:04 of the 1st period, but that would be it for Windsor. The Ridgebacks tied the game on the power play before the end of 20 minutes.

The two squads skated scorelessly through the 2nd period before the Ridgebacks went up before the 2-minute mark of the 3rd.  They went scored the second shorthanded goal of the weekend at 12:07 then shut down the Windsor offense the rest of the way.

The Lancers are now 4-1-1 with 9 points, good enough for 3rd place in the OUA West. They will travel to Kingston for another doubleheader, this time against Royal Military College, on Friday and Saturday.

Windsor will return to home ice on November 6 as they welcome Laurentian to town for two games.
