X-Men complete series sweep against Acadia

The StFX men's hockey team has advanced to the AUS final- and the U Sports Championship- following a series sweep against Acadia.

The X-Men slipped by the Axemen 5-4 in overtime to win the best-of-five conference semi-final in three games Monday night.

They trailed 4-1 in the third before they mounted a comeback, and won the series on Matt Needham's winner 4:32 into the first OT.

After the game, Brad Peddle, StFX's head coach, said he's proud of his players for not quitting.

"We haven't really been down in a series yet, so it was a great test- I just liked how resilient the guys were," he said. "Every time we would score and come back and get some momentum, they would score- then, obviously, in the third period they went up 4-1, and that's a lot of goals to come back (from)."

The X-Men advance to the AUS final against the winner of the UNB-Saint Mary's semi-final; UNB leads that series 2-1 with game four in Halifax Tuesday night.

They also clinch a spot at nationals, hosted by UNB in Fredericton, in March.
