New Brunswick tops Western Ontario in final of CIS University Cup

THUNDER BAY, Ont. - Lachlan MacIntosh scored three goals, including the winner midway through the third period, to lead the New Brunswick Varsity Reds past the Western Ontario Mustangs 4-2 in the Canadian university men's hockey final.

MacIntosh broke a 2-2 tie at 10:24 when he collected a loose puck in the slot and fired a low shot past goaltender Brad Topping.

The CIS University Cup most valuable player iced things with an empty-netter with 46 seconds left, and also opened the scoring at 18:58 of the first as the V-Reds claimed their second national title in three years.

They lost 3-2 to Alberta in the 2008 final and edged Moncton 3-2 in overtime two years ago.

John Scott Dickson also scored for New Brunswick, while Travis Fullerton made 28 saves, including a handful of big ones as Western pressed hard for an equalizer in the dying minutes.

Patrick Ouellet and Kevin Baker replied for the Mustangs, unlikely finalists after scoring five straight goals in the third period of a 7-2 thrashing of Saint Mary's on Saturday. They needed to beat the Huskies by at least three goals to advance.
