V-Reds To Face Huskies In Semi-Finals

The Varsity Reds now know their opponent for the AUS semi-finals, and it is a familiar foe. The #5 seeded Saint Mary's Huskies went on the road to defeat the #4 seeded UPEI Panthers 4-1 tonight in the deciding game of their best-of-3 quarter-final series to set-up a rematch of last year's AUS and CIS Championship between themselves and the V-Reds. The Panthers had taken game 1 by a 3-1 score on Wednesday night before the Huskies rebounded with a 4-1 home win on Friday. The first game of the best-of-5 series is scheduled for Wednesday night, with a 7PM puck drop.

The #3 seeded Moncton Aigles Bleus defeated St. FX in two straight games (6-1, 3-1) in the other quarter-final and will now move on to face the #2 seeded Acadia Axemen in the other semi-final.
