V-Reds top X-Men 5-2

The CIS #1 ranked V-Reds were back in mid season form tonight, topping the StFX X-Men in front of 2376 fans tonight at the AUC.

Scoring for UNB were Thomas Nesbitt (2), Tyler Carroll, Antoine Houde-Caron, and Daine Todd. For the X-men it was Brett Morrison and Jarrad Struthers with a goal that many fans thought was a kick in.

Shayne Weibe and Geordie Wudrick each picked up an assist in their first regular season games as V-Reds. Weibe had put a goal in earlier in the contest, but it was waived off as the referee decided it was a high stick, a call many fans disagreed with. Final shots were 28-25 for UNB.

The V-Reds are back in action tomorrow night as they host the SMU Huskies at 7pm at the AUC; come on out and cheer on the V-Reds!!

Really like how the new WHL players look on the ice....Georgie appears to always want the puck and seems to make good decisions with it.

Why was Baily out? Did he get a suspension when he went kind of nuts on that Ottawa player last weekend?

Didn't know before the game, but Bailey got an automatic game suspension because his five minute major was for "conduct to the head", a new rule this season.

When I talked to Kyle after the game last Saturday he wasn't sure if he was due supplementary punishment. Now we know the new rule.

" with a goal that many fans thought was a kick in."...."but it was waived off as the referee decided it was a high stick, a call many fans disagreed with"...doesn't sound too biased at all, especially for a game that UNB was outplayed, but merely capitalized on a few mistakes.

Of course they are biased! Idiot. What's the name of the website?

Is Fullerton hurt or sick with the flu?

Fully "tweaked something" in the exhibition game against Ottawa. He's day to day, but doesn't sound like he's going to be out too long.

And to the anonymous troll, UNB outplayed StFX, most seem to agree that the puck WAS kicked in and most everyone agrees that the tip-in stick wasn't too high. I didn't have a good angle on the kick-in, but certainly though Weibe's stick was NOT too high on the tip in.

I, on the other hand, thought Wiebe's stick was too high on the tip-in goal. I guess it all depends on which angle you viewed the play. I do agree, however, that the second X goal was kicked in, no question. Thought both Wiebe and Wudrick looked great. They will fit into the UNB line-up very well.

Thayer Doyle may have set an AUS record last night that I hope is never matched even. Reading all the comments, he may have made incorrect calls on 3 of the goals last night.

In regard to the suggestion that St. FX outplayed UNB, I wonder how many of X's shots came on their 8 power plays. UNB had only 3!

UNB fans would all like to see their team cut down on some of the unnecessary penalties that they receive but the refereeing in the last 3 league games has honestly been below the usual AUS standards.

Whay does Acadia take so many penalties?

I will only comment on the goal that certainly went in off of a St. FX skate. From many angles inside the arena I am sure it looked like a distinct kicking motion, but from the webcast angle I saw, it seemed he was falling down or losing his balance and he got a fortunate bounce off his skate.
