Calgary Sun - - SPORTS - — THE CANA­DIAN PRESS

WoLFvILLe, n.s. — days after their spot in the U sports football fi­nal four was lost in a court case, the aca­dia ax­e­men are head­ing to the Uteck bowl.

Garvin Cius picked off a Kaleb scott pass in the end­zone on the fi­nal play of the game and the ax­e­men de­feated the saint mary’s Huskies 45-38 in over­time in the Loney bowl Tues­day.

aca­dia now has the daunt­ing task of host­ing the on­tario cham­pion Western mus­tangs on short rest in the Uteck bowl on satur­day, with the win­ner ad­vanc­ing to the vanier Cup.

at­lantic Univer­sity sport (aUs), the gov­ern­ing body for univer­sity ath­let­ics in at­lantic Canada, can­celled the game last week and awarded the cham­pi­onship to aca­dia. but after a hear­ing over the week­end, nova sco­tia supreme Court Jus­tice deb­o­rah smith ruled on sun­day that the game should go ahead.

aUs had ini­tially dis­qual­i­fied saint mary’s after de­ter­min­ing archelaus Jack, a wide re­ceiver with the Huskies, was in­el­i­gi­ble to com­pete in a univer­sity football league be­cause he was pre­vi­ously on the prac­tice ros­ter of the CFL’s saskatchewan roughrid­ers.
