A very cold night at Huskies Stadium proved to be no problem for Saint Mary’s as they rolled over the St. FX X-Men 40 – 16 on Friday evening.

The win secured a playoff berth but it may have come at a cost for the Huskies. A quarterback controversy appears to be brewing after rookie Jessie Mills, in the pocket for the team’s opening five games, got pulled early for former star pivot Jack Creighton.

Creighton finished the game with 263 yards on 15-of-21 passing with three touchdowns. Two of those went to Jahmeek Taylor; one going for 75 yards.

Craig Leger was also good for the Huskies, gaining 155 yards on 18 carries for an average of 8.4 yards per possession. The lone bright spot for the X-Men was Jordan Catterall, who managed to grab 118 yards receiving including a 56-yard touchdown.

St. Mary’s, which may have a 5 – 0 record depending on the result of the University of Montreal’s appeal on a potentially forfeited match, heads to Antigonish on Saturday, Oct. 15 to play X, which are 1 – 4.
