FISU_AUS_MH_logoFREDERICTON, NB, November 8, 2013 – Team Black scored first but it was Team White that skated to a 4-2 win with two unanswered goals in the third at the AUS All Star game at the Grant Harvey Centre here.

After a first period that saw no one beat the goaltender at either end of the ice. The game took off early in the second with Team Black opening the scoring at the 3:57 mark on a goal by Lucas Bloodoff from Jordan Mayer. Black scored again at the 13:17 mark of the middle frame as Mike Cazzola took a pass from Brett Thompson to Liam Heelis and dumped it home. That gave Team Black a short lived 2-0 lead.

But less than a minute later Chris Desousa got Team White on the board converting a play from Ryan Hillier to Corey Tanaka into the first goal for White and that left White down by one when the buzzer went on the first 40 minutes of play.

Chris Culligan evened the score just over a minute into the third with the help of Desousa and just over a minute later Tanaka scored on the power play with the help of Matt Tipoff and Jordan Murray put Team White in the lead to stay.

Tanaka scored once again with under three minutes left in the game to give them the two goal lead. Cameron Critchlow and Hillier assisted.

Each team used three goaltenders, one a period. Team white had Charles Lavigne in net for the first. He made 6 saves. Drew Owsley took over in net in the second, making 8 saves and Wayne Savage finished off the game making 18 saves and taking the win.

Jonathan Groenheyde started in net for Team Black, making 6 saves. Evan Mosher took over in the second and made 9 saves while Mavric Parks stopped 20 in the third but took the loss.

Regular season action resumes this coming Friday night at 7:00pm.
