Tonight, the Windsor Express fell victim to the dominant Summerside Storm. The undefeated Storm held up a powerful defense to stop the Express in its tracks, as they went on to win 86-74 Friday night at the WFCU Centre.

On the night, the Express went 9/24 with their 3-pointers, and missed nearly half of their free throws, going 13/25. Among the Windsor scorers, 6’8″ forward Greg Surmacz led the way offensively for the Express. He had himself 31 points – including some big threes – and 8 rebounds. Also adding points for the Express were Victor Morris (11 points, 5 assists), Anthony Johnson – (10 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists), and newly acquired forward from Wayne State, Erik Parker (5 points, 5 rebounds).

Summerside arrived into Windsor with a 3-0 record on the season, and were not looking for their first loss to come tonight. During the first half, Surmacz put up good numbers against the solid Storm. However, the numbers fell short. At the half, the Express were down 49-36.

The fans in attendance were behind their team, cheering on the players as they ran up and down the court. Unfortunately, the Storm had a strong offense, as well as defense, that quickly deflated the energy of the crowd.

The game didn’t look up for Windsor in the second half. Much like the first, missed baskets and fouls halted its offense. At one point, the Express came within 6 points.  As Summerside continued sink baskets though, that deficit increased until the clock hit zero. Windsor has now lost its last 3 games. The team will likely practice tomorrow to work on the evening’s problems.

The Windsor Express are back on the court Sunday afternoon, where they hope to exact some retribution against the Summerside Storm. Tip-off is at 2pm.
