Game 1 of AUS Finals Tonight

The first game of the best-of-something happens tonight at 8pm at the Aitken Centre.  The oppponent: the STFX X-Men. The same team who crushed UNB's perfect season attempt last year, and then curb-stomped their playoff run in 3 quick games.

Think this series is just a trivial warm-up for the two teams advancing to Nationals?  Not a chance. Just read what Jordan Clendenning had to say in the story Bill Hunt did for the Daily Gleaner. They both want to win.  This is the AUS, where teams play to win every game and your biggest rival is always the team with the bus parked outside.

The season series went UNB's way.  The V-Reds outscored STFX by a margin of 18-5 and took all 4 meetings.  But that means absolutely nothing now.  So wear Red, head to the AUC and cheer on the V-Reds tonight when they hit the ice in pursuit of an AUS Championship.  Go Reds Go!

This is the series UNB has been waiting on for about a year now. Should provide for some great hockey. GO UNB!
