It was a goal filled affair as the men's Tommies completed the season sweep of the Dalhousie Tigers. This was a the first season sweep for the Tommies in two seasons, the last time they did it was against the St. FX X-men. The crowd in attendance and watching online on were treated to a game that had 14 goals scored in it, with the Tommies coming out on top 8-6.

Dal opened the scoring early in the game, but not to be out-done, Michael Beaudry (Sanza, Bissonnette) tied the game up. Both teams settled into their game plans after this though till 15:30 into the game before the Tommies were able to put another marker on the board from Matt Bissonnette (Childerley, Beaudry) making it 2-1 for STU. The Tommies lead the shots on goal in the first 16-8.

The second period started much the same way as the first period did, with Dal tying the game up with a goal early on at 3:24. The Tommies again though showing their resilience, scored just under a minute later off the stick of Sebastien Bernier (Levesque, Cameron) and then another nine seconds later from Beaudry (Unassisted) while catching Tigers goaltender Wendell Vye out of his net, making the score 4-2. Dal came back though making a game of it tying it up going into the third period, with 4 goals a piece. The Tigers lead the shots on goal 10-8 in the second.

The third period was filled with offense, Jon Bonneau (Levesque, Cameron) opened the scoring breaking the stalemate with a career highlight of a toe drag to beat Tigers keeper, Wendell Vye. Under two minutes later Yuri Cheremetiev(unassisted) scored on a partial breakaway, making it a 6-4 game. Michael Beaudry(Bonneau, Bissonnette) scored what should have been the insurance marker taking the score to 7-4. Dal showing resilience of their own though managed to put two goals in the Tommies net within the last two minutes of the game, making it 7-6. The Tommies added the final goal of the game though with six seconds left on the clock, in a move of complete unselfishness with Beaudry passing the puck to Jon Bonneau in front of the empty net and Bonneau putting the puck back on Beaudry's(Bonneau, Leduc) tape making the final score 8-6. The Tommies lead the shots on goal in the third period 16-10, as well as the game 40-28.

The Tommies are back in action as they make the trip to Wolfville, NS to take on the Acadia Axemen, at 7pm, Saturday night. Catch the action on
