The Université de Moncton Aigles Bleus (8-4-0=16pts, 2nd position) found the back of the net four times in the first twenty minutes of play and then held on for a 4-2 win against the Acadia University Axemen (3-8-1=7pts, 6th  position) Saturday in an Atlantic University Sport men’s hockey game at the J.-Louis-Lévesque Arena in front of more than 660 spectators. 

The Aigles Bleus opened the scoring at 3:09 thanks to number 25, Maxime Boudreau (Denis Toner), followed closely by teammate Jérémy Michel (Vincent Lanoue, Mika Cyr) three minutes later. The third was scored by Jacob Dion (Nathaël Roy, Mika Cyr) at 12:20. The Axemen responded only a minute later thanks to Corson Hopwo’s goal (Hudson Wilson, Jack Flaman). At the very last second of the first period, Rémy Anglehart (Olivier-Luc Haché) brought the score to 4-1 to close this period. 

The Axemen added their second in the second period thanks to Brendan Tomilson (Peach, Sellan) at 8:13. Despite numerous attempts in the third period, no goals were scored. Mika Cyr was named the first star of the game, Maxime Boudreau the second and Nathaël Roy the third. Zachary Paputsakis saw 34 pucks in the loss in front of the visitors’ net and Étienne Montpetit (13) and Félix-Anthony Éthier (13), 26 for the win. Moncton had one power-play goal in three attempts and Acadia was 0-for-9.
