Xavier Beats Colonels
The Musketeers beat the Colonels of EKU this weekend. Friday night the Muskies supplied constant pressure and found the back of the net six times, including two from Brett Deacy. Saturday was quite a different game with game mostly being decided by a great amount of penalties. With eight minutes to go EKU decided to call the game at 6-1 in favor of the Muskies due to the direction the game was heading and keeping the safety of both teams in mind.
Tomorrow, Sunday, the Muskies renew their crosstown rivalry with UC. The last time these two teams met the Muskies came out on top in a shootout. With coaching changes in both programs, including Xavier's fomer head coach Dave Reno at the helm of the Bearcats, this game should be a classic. The puck drops at 6:30 at the Gardens. Come out and cheer on your Muskies. Go X!
