The Squirrels had a reasonably comfortable win over a steady Cajun team. The shots were 30-20, and they had one goal per period. The good thing is that the morning game was at least between two Atlantic teams.
SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 8
ST. FRANCIS XAVIER X-MEN 0

This was an old school whuppin'. I thought the Mutts were the better team in the 1st and only some momentum-draining calls stopped them from having a multi-goal lead. Then came 6 goals on 12 shots in a 2nd period that simply cannot be explained. I saw it and otherwise mightn't have fully fathomed what occurred. At some point the Jeremies just couldn't get up for the game any more. Only one Mutt (Logan McVeigh) scored twice. Jordon Cooke registered his 2nd consecutive shutout.
So Sunday morning at 7:30 a.m. CDT it will be Acadia v St. F.X. for bronze. I may be asleep for that one. Then at 11:00 a.m. CDT it will be Saskatchewan v New Brunswick in the final, on Sportsnet 360.
