Shorthanded Express Have Enough to Stop Brampton
(WINDSOR, ON) The Windsor Express were without forwards Chris Commons and Kevin Loiselle on Saturday night, but fought their way to a 114-107 victory over the Brampton A's at the Powerade Centre.
Commons and Loiselle were serving their one game suspensions as a result of incidents in Sunday's loss in Mississauga.
The team leaned on DeAndre Thomas and Quinnel Brown and both delivered, to improve the Express record to a league-best 8-2.
Windsor started off with a 16-10 lead, being carried by Tony Bennett, who had 11 of the team's points to open the game.
From there, Thomas and Brown took over.
Thomas had a season high 33 points in the victory, followed closely by Brown's 30.
Windsor held a 22-14 lead after the first quarter and that was the difference in the game, as both the second and fourth quarters resulted in tie scores for the frame.
Brampton (4-7) had a 31-30 advantage in the third.
Cavell Johnson led the A's with a 24 point, eight rebound performance.
It's back to Mississauga on Tuesday, December 16th for the Windsor Express as this four game road swing continues at the Hershey Centre at 7:00pm.
The next home game is Saturday, December 27th, also against Mississauga at 7:00pm at the WFCU Centre.
