(WINDSOR, ON) – Making their first start at home since July 23, Windsor TFC welcomed Sanjaxx Lions to Alumni Field in League 1 play yesterday afternoon. After leading 2-1 into the final 5 minutes of play, Sanjaxx capitalized on defensive lapses by Windsor to escape the away match with a 3-2 victory.

Faced with almost all of the 1st team being committed to the Windsor Lancers and St Clair Saints, Windsor called up players from the Academy side, save for Mike Pio and Erik Cirovski.

“The ball took some crazy bounces, on the final goal, and I hesitated coming out,” said Shervin Mollahassani, the Windsor TFC keeper. “I have to be more aggressive when challenging for the ball.”

There are three matches remaining in the season for Windsor TFC, beginning with a September 23 kickoff against ProStars FC in Mississauga. They will return home to face FC London on October 1 at 4pm.
