Huskies and X-Men tie 2-2

 

(Halifax, NS) The Saint Mary's Huskies men's soccer team tied the StFX X-Men 2-2 on a hot afternoon at Huskies Stadium.

 

StFX opened the scoring in the 13th minute with a beautiful goal from William Warren

(Windsor, NS) who danced around two Huskies defenders before beating goalkeeper Christian

Oxner (Halifax, NS) with a shot that went in the low right corner of the net.

 

Saint Mary's responded in the 24th minute. Cian Tousignant-Osiadhail (Timberlea, NS)

sent a free kick across the box to Tyler Dorey (Dartmouth, NS), who headed the ball in for his

first goal of the season.

 

The Huskies took the lead ten minutes later as Tousignant-Osiadhail sent in a high shot

that floated over the outstretched arms of X-Men keeper William Venoit (Bedford, NS).

The Huskies led 2-1 at the half.

 

StFX found the equalizer at the 66th minute with their ninth corner kick of the game.

Ayoub Al Arabi (Halifax, NS) sent the ball to Nick Aquino (Dartmouth, NS) who put it in the

net.

 

The game became chippy in the second half as tempers ran high. Both teams received

several yellow cards and StFX assistant coach Paul Blandford was kicked out of the game.

 

Nobody, however, was able to pick up a goal and the game ended 2-2.

 

With 15 saves, Oxner was the Subway Player of the Game.

 

The Huskies are now 0-1-2 on the season while the X-Men are at 2-1-1.

 

It's a short turnaround for the Huskies as they look to pick up their first win when they

visit Moncton (0-3-0) on September 16.
