(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor Lancers used all five allotted sets to dispose of the visiting York Lions at St Denis Fieldhouse on Sunday. The last home game of the season was won by Windsor 3-2 in dramatic fashion after York forced the deciding fixture.

The Lancers dropped the first set to the Lions then took the next two for a 2-1 match lead. York squeezed through 25-23 in the 4th  before Windsor finally wrestled the match away with a 15-11 victory in the extra set.

Josh Edwards and Brad Gyemi led the Lancer attack with 15 and 20 kills, respectively. On defense Shawn Reaume made 12 digs while Blase Wasser made 11. Fabian Buck delivered 3 service aces.

Prior to the match Wasser, Reaume, and Edwards were honoured as graduating seniors during a ceremony in front of the over 200 in attendance.

The win was Windsor’s 3rd straight and improved their record to 6-10, keeping them in the hunt for a playoff position. The men will now hit the road for a pair of games in Kingston this weekend. They will take on Royal Military College on Saturday then face Queen’s on Sunday.
