(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor Lancers suffered their first loss at the friendly confines of St Denis Fieldhouse, Saturday evening, when they dropped a 3-1 decision to Western (7-2). The Lancers are now 5-4, 4 points behind Western for 2nd place in the OUA West.
The night started off well with a 25-22 Windsor, but the women couldn’t get back on track as they fell in the next three sets 25-16, 25-17, and 25-23.
The Lancers undoing was unforced errors while Western held a 10-2 advantage in blocks.
Windsor almost managed to force a 5th set with the teams tied at 22 apiece, but another error returned the ball to the Mustangs who made no mistake in their final possession.
Shannon Dean led the Lancers attack with 12 kills while Jade Ziebarth and Carleigh Bailey contributed 10 each. Lauren Stirling dished 40 assists and helped out on the back end with 12 digs. Emily Durand was solid with 16.
The Lancers return after the break, on January 15, when the Waterloo Warriors visit St Denis at 6:00 pm.
