V-Reds Thump Huskies 5-2 To Remain Unbeaten At Home

Over 2200 fans were treated to a pretty good game of hockey this Friday night when the reigning National Champion SMU Huskies visited the UNB Varsity Reds at the Aitken Centre.  Lead by goals from Hunter Tremblay, Jonathan Harty, and Lachlan MacIntosh, the V-Reds skated to a 5-2 victory.  Travis Fullerton was great when called upon, stopping 21 of 23 shots for the win. 

Jordan Clendenning had a strong game with a pair of assists.  He and Huskies forward Mike Danton seemed to develop a bit of a mini-rivalry during the pre-game skate that carried over to the game.  The evening also featured the return of defenceman Ben Wright to the UNB lineup.  Dion Campbell was out sick, so Spencer Corcoran actually played some shifts as a forward, throwing his weight around. 

The UNB victory, combined with STFX's 7-3 loss to UPEI leaves the V-Reds 3 pts up on STFX for first place in the AUS.  The X-Men visit UNB tomorrow night at 7 PM.

Culligan is great hustle and positioning.
Clendenning makes a good pass into the slot.
Danton is a bit bizarre.
