(HALIFAX, NS) - The Tigers beat the Memorial Sea-Hawks 2-0 on a rainy and windy Friday night, at Wickwire Field in Halifax.
Early in the first half, fifth-year striker, Mohammed Jaber (Halifax, NS) opened the scoring for the Tigers. A beautiful turn around his defender allowed Jaber to find the bottom right-hand corner.
Just over 20 minutes later, Jared Ndopedro (Campbellton, NB) doubled the score for the Tigers with a flick from a short corner.
Memorial worked the ball well through transition but was unable to get shots on target. They only tallied three shots over the full 90 minutes.
A red card was given to Suliman Elomrani in the middle of the second half, after being shown his second yellow card in a short period of time. However, the Tigers were able to weather the storm of the second half, holding on to their two-goal lead.
Aiden Rushenas saved all three shots on goal to secure a shutout for the Tigers.
This victory marked the second win of the season for the Tigers, both on home turf. Tonight's defeat marks the Sea-Hawks third loss of the season.
Dalhousie's Kyle Routledge (Halifax, NS) earned Subway Player of the Game honours for his solid play and distribution in the middle of the park.
Both teams return to action this Sunday. The Tigers complete their two-game home stand when they host the UPEI Panthers at 3:15 pm. The Sea-Hawks stay in Halifax over the weekend, making the short trip down the road to play the Saint Mary's Huskies at Huskies Stadium at 1:45 pm.
