The Lancers fell to the Western Mustangs 43-21 on Saturday afternoon at TD Waterhouse Stadium in London, ON.

Earlier this year, the Lancers defeated the Gee-Gees 39-29 during Alumni Weekend at Alumni Field.
A strong defensive showing by the Blue & Gold in the first quarter kept the Mustangs at bay and allowed the Lancers to build a 14-0 lead after the first quarter of play.
Kennedy connected with Gilbert Stewart on a short five yard pass for his first touchdown of the quarter at 7:48. On their next drive, Kennedy moved one step closer to the OUA record when receiver Evan Pszczonak caught an 8-yard pass with one minute remaining in the quarter.
Kennedy's touchdown pass to Pszczonak was also the Windsor, ON native's 700th career pass completion. He finished the game and his CIS career with 710 completions to place him second overall in the OUA and third overall in the CIS.
The second and third quarters were all Western as they went on an 29-0 run to lead 18-14 at halftime and 29-14 after three quarter.
Windsor got back on the board in the fourth quarter. Kennedy tied the OUA record with his 12th of the season when he connected with Pszczonak for a 38-yard touchdown pass to bring the Lancers within a score midway through the quarter.
The Mustangs once again increased their lead with two more touchdowns to earn the victory.
