UNB vs. UPEI In AUS Semi-Finals

The Varsity Reds semi-final opponent has been determined. Matt Carter's goal in the second overtime period propelled the #4 UPEI Panthers to a 6-5 double overtime victory tonight over the #5 Acadia Axemen, giving the Panthers their first playoff series win in over 15 years and a date with the reigning National Champions. We are sure most fans remember the Panthers defeating UNB in the first three meetings between the two this season - including handing UNB their only two home losses of the year - so the V-Reds will be looking to exact the ultimate measure of revenge. These teams feature the #2 (UNB) and #6 (UPEI) offences in the country so it should be a good one.
