(FREDERICTON, NB) The UNB Reds dominated a rare Sunday afternoon game, beating the visiting Dalhousie Tigers 7-0.  

The game was originally scheduled for Saturday night, but was postponed when weather prevented the Tigers from leaving Prince Edward Island.  

The Tigers pressured the Reds early on, but it didn't take long for the Reds to take over the game.   

Kris Bennett (Brampton, ON) opened the scoring at roughly eight minutes when the Tigers turned the puck over close to their net.  

Chris Clapperton (Cap d'Espoir, QC) made it 2-0, capitalizing on a failed clearing attempt by the Tigers at 11:57 of the first period.  

Not even a minute later, Samuel Dove-McFalls (Montreal, QC) made it 3-0.  

The Reds made it 4-0 at 17:19 of the first, when Cam Brace (Etobicoke, ON) fed Mark Rassell (Calgary, AB) in front, providing Rassell with the perfect opportunity to finish.   

Just one minute into the second period, Tyler Boland (St. John's, NL) scored on a wraparound.  

Tigers goalie Connor Hicks (Kanata, ON) allowed just the one goal in the second period, while turning aside 21.  

James McEwan (Chatham, ON) scored his first as a Red, at 6:37 of the third, to make it 6-0 UNB.  

Clapperton scored his second, bar-down at 7:23.  

Brace finished the afternoon with two assistswhile Stephen Anderson (Morell, PE) had three and was named the Subway Player of the Game.   

The Reds outshot the Tigers 59-13.  

With the win, the Reds are now 10-0-2.The Tigers record falls to 2-10-0.  

Both teams return to action on Friday. Dalhousie will host the UPEI Panthers, while UNB will visit StFX.
