Pressure builds for 0-3 Huskies

If the Saint Mary’s Huskies can find the panic button, it’s time to press it.

If the Saint Mary’s Huskies can find the panic button, it’s time to press it.

The Huskies’ nightmarish start went from bad to worse on Saturday when they fell 23-21 to the Mount Allison Mounties, a squad they hadn’t lost to in more than a decade. The loss, before 3,500 fans in a neutral-site contest at Moncton Stadium, leaves the Huskies tied for last in Atlantic University Sport standings with a 0-3 record.

“At the end of the day, they played hard and we’re still not ready to be ‘that’ team yet,” said Huskies head coach Steve Sumarah.

The Huskies, who have won three straight AUS titles and have only had two 0-3 starts in the past 15 seasons, host the Acadia Axemen, 2-1, on Friday at 7 p.m. Sumarah said he couldn’t narrow the Huskies’ problems down to just one thing.

“We continue to shoot ourselves in the foot as a team,” Sumarah said. “We need to do something to try to fix that. We’ve got to get back to the drawing board and see what we can come up with.”
