Thousands of fans streamed into University of Windsor stadium Monday to cheer on the Lancer football team in a hard-fought 39-30 loss to Queen’s to open the 2014 season.

Leading the way for Windsor was quarterback Austin Kennedy, who threw for 393 yards and three touchdowns—two to receiver Evan Pszczonak, including a 90-yard play to open the scoring for the home team. Dylan Whitfield’s 11-yard catch and a 32-yard run by Beau Lumley accounted for Windsor’s other majors.
