Capers fall to X-Men
Struggling offensively, the Cape Breton University Capers men's basketball team dropped their fifth straight game, 68-56 to the StFX X-Men Tuesday in Antigonish.

Cedric Kasongo scored 13 points to lead CBU, while Meshack Lufile followed with 12. Both Sean McCormick and A.J. Geugjes had big games on the glass with 11 rebounds apiece.
Capers head coach Matt Skinn said some mistakes late in the fourth quarter were costly.

"We got it to within three or four at the end and lost our cool a bit down the stretch, took a technical foul and took a couple of hard fouls there and that really sealed the game," he said. "We were right there and just lost our cool."

William Donkoh scored a game-high 16 points for the X-Men. Cameron Walker fired 13 and Jordan Clarke added 11.

The Capers trailed the game 29-23 at the half. Their record falls to 3-6 on the season, and they sit in sixth place in the AUS.
