EDMONTON, Alta. - The NAIT Ooks men's hockey team defeated the Concordia Thunder 3-1 on Saturday night in the NAIT Arena.

In the second period, Curtis Roach scored early in the second period to put the Ooks up 2-0. Mitchell Williams the beat Concordia goalie Garrett Storms, for his first career ACAC goal.
