Farrell leads the way with 3 points in win
WOLFVILLE, N.S – The Acadia Axemen (4-7-1) got a much-needed win and snapped a two-game losing skid on Sunday afternoon, beating the Moncton Aigles Bleus with a convincing 5-1 win.
Acadia opened the scoring early, with a power-play marker from forward Kyle Farrell.
Farrell took a pass and kicked the puck up to his stick and fired a wrist shot in tight of the net past the blocker of the Moncton goalie to make it 1-0.
The Axemen doubled their lead before the half-way mark of the period with a beautiful goal from defenseman – and Subway First Star of the Night – Ross MacDougall
MacDougall entered the zone late, picked the puck up at the blue-line, made a nice toe-drag around a Moncton defender and then wired a wrist into the top right corner of the net.
Cristiano Digiacinto added to Acadia’s lead in the first frame when the Axemen forward potted a rebound that came off the top of the net and landed in the crease, making it 3-0.
Acadia spent the rest of the period killing off penalties, as Moncton went 0-for-4 on the power-play in the first period.
By the end of the first period, the shots were 13-9 for the Axemen.
Neither team was able to find the back of the net in the second, as the Axemen maintained their 3-0 lead going into the third. Read more ›
