UNB Downs Defending National Champs To Win Fall Classic

Jordan Clendenning and Kyle Bailey each had hat tricks as the V-Reds beat up on the SMU Huskies en route to a 10-3 win in the final of the UNB Fall Classic.  Also scoring for UNB were Daine Todd, Josh Hepditch, Nick MacNeil and Nick Layton.  UNB outshot the Huskies 44-21.  Travis Fullerton played the entire game for UNB while Neil Conway lasted for 9 goals before the mercy rule resulted in Cory Chipman taking over.

Hunter Tremblay and Taylor Procyshen did not dress for the V-Reds, while Mike Danton was absent from the SMU Huskies lineup.

While it's only meaningless pre-season, the V-Reds will take a few positives out of the weekend.  In the last 8 days UNB has defeated both 2010 CIS finalists by a margin of 16-5.  

Tournament all-stars from UNB were Kyle Bailey, Jordan Clendenning, and Josh Kidd.

The V-Reds will prepare for their next few games before heading to the USA where they face NCAA opponents UMass, Vermont, and RPI to wrap up the pre-season.  The next home game will be the season opener on October 22nd vs. the Dalhousie Tigers.

Wallingford was on the bench for SMU played 2 shifts in the first as a forward did not play again but was on the bench

Did anyone have a good look at the first SMU goal from behind the net...from where I was sitting it sure didn't look like it was in and the UNB players didn't appear to believe it could have been in either.

Yes i was sitting directly behind the net and it just squeezed in

Wallingford was playing, and he did play some defence too, on the power play.

The St Mary's Goal was in, straight into the middle of the net along the Ice, caught some iron under the padding and came right out instantly, made it sound like it hit the post, but it was definately in

Had fun following Dave's live CIS blog. Seems like he nods off at the keyboard every once in a while though...

Just teasing. Great stuff Dave. Keep up the good work.

Well, when there wasn't much happening on the ice, like play between the two bluelines, there really wasn't much to report. So then I was doing housekeeping, like working on picking the All Tournament team, checking stats, and just watching the action.

I'm still getting used to watching the play and typing ... I think I may need bifocals for this work in the future!
It is way easier to do a TV or radio broadcast.

FWIW...I was sitting near Tremblay/Shutron/Wright/Procyshen and there was another guy with them dressed in a suit and tie who looked like he was keeping stats or something...the mysterious Finnish player?! He kind of looked European...

Also, Dickson was around as well...is he playing anywhere this season?

John Scott told me after the game that he was heading to Bridgeport today.

I keep forgetting to ask Gardiner about the "Finnish Mystery"

I also noticed that Steve Pearce is behind the bench this year as an assistant coach.

The Guy keeping the stats with the players with the shirt and tie on, his name is Andrew something isn't it? Hes not finish, but I understand how he could look that way, but he doesn't play, hes been doing the stas for a couple of seasons I believe

BTW - this weekend's UMass game is against UMass-Amherst. It was originally against UMass-Lowell, but had to change due to a conflict with the UVM game. So, Lowell is out and Amherst is in. This is a big difference if anyone was thinking on driving to the game. Also, the game is in the afternoon (3:00pm) - not the evening.
