The Lancers represented a tough test to re-open the season for the Marauders Saturday, and ultimately proved to much for McMaster to overcome, over the course of four sets at Burridge Gym.
Windsor came out on the winning end of a 26-24 tussle in the third set, and cruised on from there to take the fourth 25-13 and the match 3-1 (25-20, 18-25, 26-24, 25-13), handing McMaster its fourth loss of the season in the process.
Mac moved to 4-5 on the season with the result, while Windsor improved to 4-6.
Right side Jessie Nairn was far and away the Marauders leading offensive light in the loss, with 14 kills, three aces and a block assist for a team and match high 17.5 points.
But the hosts struggled offensively as a group, hitting just .134 with 24 attacking errors over the course of four sets, and added 14 errors on serve reception.
The service line was a friendly place for the Lancers, who notched 14 aces versus just four service errors in a winning effort, led by outside hitter Jade Ziebarth, who accounted for six.
