The last time the Men faced off against the Huskies it was a 2-1 loss at home for the Tommies, this was a big rebound for the guys as they had lost the first game to SMU 9-1 at the Forum in Halifax. The first half of the season was a split decision against the X-Men, in which X took a 6-5 win at home and the Tommies took a 5-4 win at the GHC. The Tommies took this win into the Holiday break. STU is going into Bluenose country with a few new weapons up Coach Pat Powers sleeve, Matt Bissonnette, Michael Beaudry, Ian Saab and Sawyer Hannay. Bissonnette was STU's Male Athlete of the Week after picking up four assists in two games against UdeM and UPEI.
