Tim Horton's Antigonish

Sports Roundup – November 14

The X-Men Football team are Loney Bowl bound after a 27-22 victory over Acadia in the Subway AUS semifinal on a wet but mild Saturday afternoon at St. FX Stadium. The X-Men needed late game heroics in order to pull off the victory as Acadia were leading for a significant portion of the game. X-Men head coach Gary Waterman took a gamble on a third and six play with six minutes left in the game and was rewarded as quarterback Silas Fagnan hit Zakariya Karim with a 46-yard pass and he scored his second touchdown of the afternoon. The Loney Bowl will be played at 2 pm on Saturday, November 20th at St. FX Stadium, against the Bishop’s Gaiters.
