(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor Lancers have taken over 2nd place in the OUA west division with a 4-1 victory over the Western Mustangs at South Windsor Arena on Saturday evening. The domination of the Mustangs extended Windsor’s win streak to 3 after their sixth game of the young season.
Tyson Ness opened the scoring for Windsor at 14:04 of the 1st period, beating Western netminder Luke Peresinni to the blocker side, with helpers to Julian Luciani and Chad Shepley.
After taking the 1-0 lead into the first break, the Lancers doubled their lead when Blake Blondeel set up a snipe from Todd Ratchford. Western cut the lead in half, but before the end of the middle frame Justice Dundas restored the 2-goal cushion as Ratchford picked up his second point of the night.
Luciani put the game out of reach with a power play marker, from Chris Scott and Dylan Seguin.
Blake Richard earned the win between the pipes for Windsor as he kicked out 33 of 34 shots. A harried Peresinni faced 43 shots from the Blue and Gold.
