WOLFVILLE, N.S. (U SPORTS) – Vincent Deslauirers and Jeremy Michel scored during the Moncton Aigles Bleus tight 2-1 victory over the Acadia Axemen in the pre-season home opener for the Axemen.

Acadia attempted to tie the game late in the third by pulling their goalie, but they were unable to solve the Moncton goalie.

Moncton’s goals were scored in the 9th and 31st minute by Vincent Deslauirers and Jeremy Michel respectively, while Luke Zazula replied in a losing cause for Acadia in the 49th minute.

Despite coming up short on the scoreboard, Acadia outshot the Aigles Bleus 29-24 on the night.

Acadia failed to capitalize on their many power-plays, going 1-for-6 on the night, while also giving up a shorthanded goal to start the game.

The Axemen split their exhibition season with a 3-1 win over Saint Mary’s this past Thursday evening and tonight’s loss to Moncton.
