WINDSOR—Windsor boys lost 61-43 to Surry during the Dukes’ senior night on Tuesday.

Windsor’s overall record fell to 4-18 and 1-11 in the Tri-Rivers District.

“As tradition, all seniors got to start the game and really came out focused and ready to play for the home crowd one last time,” said Dukes Coach Chris Smith. “The game started slow for both teams as both played good defense in the first quarter, and shots for both teams were not falling.”

Leading 14-8 at the end of the first quarter, Surry started hitting shots in the second quarter and began to break the Windsor’s defense down. The Cougars got shots from their big guys inside, giving them a 34-26 lead going into halftime.

The third quarter began with WHS making a small push to cut the score, but Surry regained its momentum and added 4 points to its lead, going up by 16 by the end of the third.

In the fourth quarter, Surry took advantage of Windsor’s turnovers and took charge of the game.

“It was a good night for our seniors and our team,” Smith said. “I thought the guys came out and played hard the entire night.”

“Surry is a great team, and my guys came out and fought hard despite our record for the year and the tough opponent they were playing,” he continued. “I am proud of my guys and the effort they have given all year and am positive if we continue to improve and give that level of effort, our program will just get better and better.”

Windsor center Tony Walton scored 21 points and made 12 rebounds; forward B.J. Wilson added 10 points, 3 steals and 5 rebounds. Guard R.J. Edwards had 5 assists.
