The wait is over.

Windsor football players, coaches and fans were able to celebrate a victory for the first time in nearly two years.  On Friday, the Owls came out on top against the Cuba Wildcats by a score of 36-24.

The win helped the Owls secure their first win since October 14, 2016. Ironically enough, that win came against Cuba as well in a 67-52 shootout.

“I think our team just wanted the win more than they did,” senior and captain Luke Stallings said. “They weren’t an easy team to beat, but in the end, we played the better game.”

The Owls accumulated 453 rushing yards throughout the contest, led by Justin Stenger’s 169 yards on 22 carries. Senior Nate Browning and sophomore Derek Williams also contributed over 100 yards each.  The team also came up with some pivotal plays on defense to help ensure the win.

The team had a total of three interceptions and even forced two fumbles. Browning,  Williams and Mike Wolcott all came away with interceptions to help swing the momentum in their favor. The Owls are hoping to keep up their winning ways on Friday against Bayless.

“I’ve wanted to win every game we’ve played, but winning our second game in a row on senior night would be pretty awesome,” Stallings said.

Even non-seniors can’t help but feel as if the game has a bigger purpose that pushes them to perform.

“You just always want to make sure that their last home game can be a win,” Williams said.

The team has a prime opportunity to end things on a good note.The team faces off against the Bayless Bronchos at 7 pm on Friday at home. The Bronchos have struggled this season, which is the school’s first season with a varsity football program.

The Owls are hoping to end the regular season on a two game winning streak. A winning football team can energize an entire school.

Sophomore “golden boy” and regular in the stands, Sonny Amabile,  said, “I think it affects the entire school tremendously and really brings a boost in spirit. I’ve ran up and down the track for them carrying that gold flag and trying to pump the crowd up, so having them capture the win against Cuba was great.”
