  • Your ACES men's ice hockey team battled extremely hard last night vs Strath Haven in game 1 of a home and home series with a short turn around. LM brought the physicality and gave their all rallying back from a 3-1 deficit and tying it 3-3. Strath Haven would eventually push a few more through and despite the intense effort displayed, LM would fall short by a score of 6-4. Aces Nation, ALL 10 of you that were there, we truly appreciate your support!! The guys love to see the staff that have been out at our games! We welcome any other portion of the student body OR staff to attend as well in the near future! Your ACES hockey has been battling since 9/6 and still have 3 months left to play. We need your support at the rinks! We Appreciate it. See you Monday night, 7pm at Aston as LM enters Strath Haven territory in search of a much needed win. LM currently holds a 3-3-0-2 record while occupying the 4th seed in the Central League standings. Haven sits in third."
