MEN'S HOCKEY

The Queen’s men’s hockey team (11-4-0) stormed back from an early two-goal deficit on the road to beat the No. 5 UQTR Patriotes (15-2-1) 4-3 on Friday.

Coming off the holiday break the Gaels gave up a pair of goal in the opening four minutes against the co-leaders in the OUA East standings.

However, the Gaels struck back in the second with goals from Spencer Abraham and Patrick McGillis. The Patriotes once again took the lead early in the third but goals from Harrison Hendrix and Eric Ming put the Gaels ahead for good.

The Gaels next take the ice when they host the Concordia Stingers on Friday and then face UQTR once again on Saturday.
