The Windsor Express are on a roll. For the third time in eight nights, the rails have led to victory over the Montreal Jazz. With offensive power from its starters, the Express grabbed the lead and steered their way to victory. Windsor defeated Montreal 94-83.

The appropriately nicknamed Kevin Loiselle had 8 points, and a team-leading 12 rebounds. Fellow Express Darren Duncan (11 points, 10 assists), Chris Commons (17 points), Mike Helms (17 points) and Greg Surmacz (15 points) also brought their a-game to the WFCU Centre Wednesday night.

Throughout the early goings of the first quarter, Montreal was – specifically, Terance Licorish, who had 12 points in the first 12 minutes. Eventually, Windsor began to narrow the small gap. It was a close, tight game in the opening frame. At the end of the first, Windsor managed to grab the 25-23 lead. The second quarter was much like the first: both teams pressed for points. The Express closed out the half with a couple Duncan foul shots. At halftime, the score was all even at 41 points.

Nearly four minutes into the third quarter, Loiselle headed off the court after injuring his leg. He was back in for the fourth to continue his team’s offense. During the final 12 minutes, the Express kept pushing forward and increasing their lead. While Montreal tried to catch up, the gap was too big. Windsor fought off the Jazz in the fourth and won 94-83 over Montreal.

Following a third straight victory against the Montreal Jazz Wednesday night, Windsor is now on a five-game winning streak.

The Express are back this Saturday, February 23rd when the Moncton Miracles come to town. Tip-off is at 7pm.
