Harper leads the way with 4 point night
Halifax, NS – In an important game for AUS standings, the Dalhousie Tigers hosted the Acadia
Axemen at the Halifax Forum on Saturday night. In a back and forth, high scoring affair, the
Axemen were able to come away with the 6-4 victory.
The Axemen were quick to find the opening goal in this one on a great breakout play from their
own end. At his own blue-line, Stephen Harper (Burlington, ON) flipped a pass high in the air
through the neutral zone to spring Owen MacDonald (Elora, ON) on a partial break, and
MacDonald hit Cristiano Digiacinto (Hamilton, ON) across the slot with a hard pass and
Digiancinto redirected it over the shoulder of Reilly Pickard (Halifax, NS).
Following that play just a few minutes later, the Axemen worked the puck around the Tigers
zone while on the man-advantage. Marc McNulty (Medicine Hat, AB) was able to take a step off
the half-board with space, and fired a high shot over the glove of Pickard as the Axemen took a
commanding 2-0 lead early. Read more ›
