10/25/2018 vs Pacific @ Pacific: Playing on another Senior Night, the Owls couldn’t match the Indians’ energy and they found themselves on their heels early. Windsor was sustaining against Pacific’s attack, but eventually it caught up with them. Pacific sent a ball in the box and Jared Tanner was able to knock it down and corral it before Pacific could get to the ball, but the exact same play happened moments later with a different result. A Pacific player was able to knock the ball just out of Tanner’s grasp, on the knock down play, and put it into an open net with only 8 minutes expired in the game. Windsor would struggle to consistently put together offensive opportunities, but when they had the opportunities, they couldn’t finish. The rain had picked up and it turned the field into a very slick surface with both teams looking for good footing. This would play a part in the second half, but it seemed to hurt the Indians more than the Owls. Windsor came out as a different team in the second half and only allowed Pacific to cross midfield twice throughout the half. With the Owls dominating play and Pacific struggling to keep up with the Owls passing, they were slipping everywhere. However, with the control of the play Windsor could not score as Pacific’s goalie made save after save. Then with 11 minutes left in the game, Jake Mahon was able to put a run up the the field together and find Grant Siegel on a diagonal pass. Siegel hit his shot on the inside of the near post and it pinged to the other side of the goal into the side netting. The momentum had already shifted, but that goal put Pacific on their heels. With that advantage the Owls would score 3 minutes later, when Tanner Berry slotted a perfectly placed ball for Cody Wilson to run onto and finish on a far bar shot. With less than 8 minutes to play, the Owls chose to keep the pressure up instead of going into a defensive shell and Pacific had no answers. Tanner would make 6 saves in the final regular season game. Final score 2-1 win. (12-11-1)
