Houck & Farrell with goals for Acadia
WOLFVILLE, N.S. – The Acadia Axemen (5-14-2) lost their fifth straight game following a 5-2 defeat at the hands of the second place Saint Mary’s Huskies (14-7-1).
“Every team goes through struggles. Just keep working hard and we’ll work through it and the guys will find their way,” noted Axeman Kyle Farrell following the game.
Although the Axemen led in shots and came close to tying the game in the third, they never held a lead during the game.
The Axemen dominated play for the majority of the opening period, but Saint Mary’s left the ice with a 1-0 lead after the first.
The Huskies gained their lead when forward Hunter Garlent and Subway First Star of the Night, chipped the puck around the defenceman and lifted the puck over the left shoulder of the Axemen goalie to make it 1-0.
Following a first period shut-out against Moncton last night, this marked four straight scoreless period for Acadia.
By the end of the first period, the shots were 12-9 for the Axemen.
Saint Mary’s added to their lead early in the second when forward Jake Coughler stepped into the slot and fired a wrist shot into the bottom left hand corner of the net to make it 2-0.
Acadia finally got on the scoreboard with 14:23 remaining to play in the second thanks to Stephen Harper and Kyle Farrell. Read more ›
