Semi-Finals Set

The St. FX X-Men scored three unanswered goals and got 41 saves from Chase Marchand to defeat the Acadia Axemen 4-1 in game 3 of their best 2-of-3 quarterfinal series tonight in Antigonish. This sets up the following best 3-of-5 semi-final match-ups:

(1) UNB Reds vs. (4) UPEI Panthers
(2) Saint Mary's Huskies vs. (3) St. FX X-Men

The full schedule has yet to be released, but we do know UNB will host games 1 and 2 of their series against the Panthers on Thursday, February 21st and Friday, February 22nd. 

UNB won all five regular season match-ups versus UPEI this season, out-scoring the Panthers 33-13 in those games. 

The X-Men/Huskies season series was a bit more evenly matched with all five games decided by one goal, including two in overtime. Saint Mary's went 3-2-0 in the head-to-head match-ups while St. FX was 2-1-2.

The winners of each series will be the two AUS representatives at the University Cup in Lethbridge, Alberta next month.
