Travelling to Mississauga, the Windsor Express were looking to close out their quarter-final series and sweep the Power. Unfortunately, things wouldn’t go Windsor’s way. The Express couldn’t recover from a first quarter deficit, and eventually fell to the Power 116-109 in Game Three of the Best-of-Five series.

For the Express, Quinnel Brown put up 26 points. Chris Commons netted 22 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. Tony Bennett recorded his third straight double-double with 19 points and 12 assists.

Mississauga Power point guard Tut Ruach led his team to victory by firing an incredible 48 points. Jordan Weidner added 26 points.

Windsor never really recuperated after going down early in the first. The Express managed to even the score with their opponents, but only momentarily as the Power surged offensively. Windsor finished the first quarter down by 9 points, and the first half down by 14.

As Mississauga powered forward, Windsor fell further back. The Power held a 17-point advantage at one time in the third quarter, a lead that was narrowed to 12 points with a quarter to go. The Express crept in and closed the gap, coming within six points early. They didn’t get much closer than that. Exhaustion started to settle in. the Power weren’t going away. At the final buzzer, Mississauga would walk away with a 116-109 win, the series now sitting at 2-1 Windsor.

Game Four is set for Tuesday, March 17th at 7:30pm in Mississauga. If necessary, Game Five will be back at the WFCU Centre Wednesday, March 18th at 7:00pm.
