KING WILLIAM—Despite coming into the game 0-2, King William gave Windsor a run for its money.
But in the end it was Windsor in the win column. With a huge effort from quarterback Kwamane Harris, who led the team in rushing and passing, the Dukes remained undefeated at 4-0 with a 21-13 victory over the Cavaliers.
Harris was 6-for-16 for 94 yards through the air and also rushed for
99 yards on 25 carries.
After a first half stalemate, Windsor broke the ice with 38 seconds to play in the half when Harris connected with Comique Robinson on a 38-yard touchdown strike. The two-point conversion failed and the Dukes led 6-0.
Just 25 seconds later, King William took the lead when Ryan Thomas threw a 55-yard pass to Darren Powell. Allen Johnson’s extra-point kick made it 7-6 at the half.
With 3:35 left in the third quarter, Windsor’s R.J. Harris ran for a five-yard touchdown, and a two-point conversion by Harris put the Dukes up for good at 14-7.
Edwards scored on a one-yard run with 7:35 left in the game and Christian Daniels’ extra point gave Windsor a 21-7 lead.
King William made things interesting with a touchdown at the 4:48 mark of the fourth quarter. Quarterback Lewis Redman connected with Joseph Akers for a 12-yard touchdown to cut the Windsor lead to 21-13.
Windsor head coach Bruce Carroll was pleased with his team’s effort.
“They were kind of banged up this week, and they truly gutted it out,”
he said. “That’s a pretty good football team. It’s the best team we played so far. When it came down to it, we got it done on defense. Our coaches had them on a good scheme.”
Windsor travels to Washington & Lee for a 7 p.m. kickoff on Friday.
