(WINDSOR, ON) – The visiting Western Mustangs were first to hit the score sheet, last night at South Windsor Arena, but it was all Lancers as four unanswered goals propelled them to a 4-1 victory. The win ties Windsor and Western at second spot in the OUA West, 1 point behind York, heading into the break.
Western opened the scoring with 5 minutes remaining in the 1st period. However, CIS all-star Kenny Bradford drew the teams even a minute later, assisted by Dylan Denomme and Steve Anthony, sending the side to the dressing room knotted up at 1.
Justice Dundas put Windsor in front to stay, with his 8th goal of the season, from Anthony and Chad Shepley, at the 3:48 mark of the 2nd period. The middle stanza would end 2-1 in Windsor’s favour and the Purple Ponies thinking that they still had a chance.
Tyson Ness doused those hopes at 12:27 of the 3rd when he scored, helped by Paul Bezzo and Eric Noel, to establish a 2-goal lead. Dundas’ second of the night, into an empty net with 4 seconds left to play, from Bradford and Noel, capped two points for the Lancers.
The Lancers will return to action when they host the division leading York Lions on January 8, at 7:30 pm.
