Windsor High School’s best start on the gridiron in more than a decade came to a screeching halt Monday night.

Damien Ashton rushed for 188 yards and scored three touchdowns to lead Washington & Lee to a 36-15 win over Windsor in a non-district football contest Monday night.

Windsor opened the game with a score when Kwamane Harris threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Tomique Robinson and Christian Daniels booted the extra point for a 7-0 lead with 8:02 left in the first quarter.

But Washington & Lee scored the next five touchdowns, including three straight by Ashton for 18, 10 and 8 yards.

Windsor did not score again until two minutes left in the third quarter when Harris broke the plane from five yards out and also ran in the two-point conversion to cut the W&L lead to 33-15.

The Windsor (4-1) defense allowed 397 yards of total offense.

Harris was Windsor’s leading rusher with 40 yards and was 11-for-19 for 114 yards through the air.

The game had been scheduled for Friday night but was postponed due to the nor’easter that blew through the region.
