V-Reds 7, Redmen 6

They won't all be pretty.

UNB won a war of attrition tonight, beating the McGill Redmen by a score of 7-6. McGill scored seconds into the game, and would jump to a 2-0 lead early in the 1st period.  But 2 goals by Lachlan MacIntosh would put the V-Reds back even to end the period.

Bailey would put the V-Reds up by one, followed by MacIntosh's 3rd of the game.  Dion Campbell would score one more in 2nd period, but give the Redmen credit - they didn't quit and made the most of thier chances, scoring 2 goals on 3 shots in the 2nd period.

UNB came back in the 3rd led by goals from Bailey and Tremblay.  Unfortunately, McGill wasn't going away in this one, scoring a pair of goals in the 3rd period, 6 in total on Travis Fullerton in this game, and giving the V-Reds something to think about moving forward.

This wasn't the best game defensively for UNB, and Fullerton would probably like a few of those goals back, but these games are going to happen from time to time.  Final shots were 42 - 18 in favour of UNB.  Give the team credit for finding a way to pull off the win.

The teams play again tomorrow night at the AUC, and remeber, it'll be available on Rogers TV.  Game time is 7 PM.

2 goals on the first 2 shots of the game. 2 goals on 3 shots in the 2nd period. Wow, flashbacks of last season or what? Nice to see Fullerton step up to the plate and accept responsibility for his performance (see today's Gleaner article). IMO, however, he didn't have much help in front of him. I'm expecting a much different result tonight. This may be the chance that Yeoman's has been waiting for.

Yeah it was one of those weird is hard to fault the defence because they only gave up 18 shots...but it is hard to fault Fullerton because some of the goals can't be blamed on him...just one of those games where McGill capitalized on most of their limited chances...helped out by some sloppy play by UNB

Hey how did young Corcoran play last night? I saw on Twitter that he must have laid someone out with a crushing hit.

Corcoran has improved game by game adjusting to the faster and stronger pace of the AUS vs the MJHL, at this point I would say he is 7th on the UNB depth Chart on defense

hes improving carying and passing the puck very well, his defense on the other hand needs some work. Hes been trying to hit alot of guys over the few games never connecting on any of them at all, and getting caught out of position, accept for the one hit you are hearing about he actually hit the guy so hard into the boards, that the McGill players Skate Blade actualy flew off to the other side of the Ice Surface, and that was airbourn not sliding on the Ice. I have never seen that before
