This was not a thriller. But it was a very steady, workmanlike game where the Squirrels threw a wet blanket over the Mary's and that was that. The final shots were 23-17 for UNB. With the game 1-0 entering the 3rd, SMU outshot them 5-4 in the period. The 4th shot was into an empty net.
This was a game coaches would love. But for fans? Kind of a bore.
The Monkeys must be kicking themselves for blowing game 1 against Waterloo. They likely could have forced the play where the Mary's couldn't and make it look like a hockey game.
Since I'm a Vreds fan I was on the edge of my seat from the opening faceoff. I can undertand though how a neutral fan was disappointed in the lack of scoring/chances.
I think the fact these two teams played each other 8 times overall this year had a lot to do with it. The Bears would have been a different game for sure.
