Acadia placekicker Thomas Veinot was named the special teams player of the week after kicking a last-second 15-yard game-winning field goal for the Axemen. Veinot finished the game two-for-three on field goals, help the Axemen defeat Mount Allison 15-13. It was a huge win for Acadia considering the team finished 0-8 in 2022.
