WINDSOR—In a rare Tuesday night football game, Windsor continued its Sept. 6 game and defeated Arcadia 36-0.

The Sept. 6 game was stopped in the second quarter due to lightning and a heavy rain with Windsor up 6-0.

The Dukes scored easily on the restart with a 68-yard run by quarterback Justice Chapman and went on for the win over the Firebirds.

Chapman carried the ball three times for 66 yards and two touchdowns. He led in rushing for the Dukes.

Windsor’s defense did not allow the Firebirds to cross midfield until late in the game after the Duke coaching staff pulled its starters.

Joining Chapman in scoring was Caleb Dundlow, who scored on a 48-yard run in the first half to put the Dukes up 20-0. A pass to Sharod Patterson for the two-point conversion was good and the Dukes led 22-0.

In the second quarter, Chapman connected with R.J. Edwards for a 32-yard touchdown pass. After a successful two-point conversion, Windsor went into the locker room with a 28-0 halftime lead.

The only score in the second half came on a 25-yard run by Edwards. Chapman ran in for the two-point conversion.

“We came out and did what we needed to do and finished and got a win,” said Windsor Coach Chuck Parrish. “That is what we wanted to do. We are now 4-2 and got our first district game Friday night with Charles City.”
