Werbowski continued his big day piling up rushing yards while also grabbing an interception on defence. Running back John Gelacio also took advantage of the strong blocking by Windsor offensive line, while on defence the backs wreaked havoc all day, with Terrell Snow grabbing two interceptions and Aidan Gallagher adding another pick that he returned 60 yards for a touchdown. Mitch Townsend and Jeremy Sinclair led the team in tackling.
