Truro Daily News - - Sports -

WOLFVILLE, N.S. — The Aca­dia Ax­e­men needed over­time to de­feat the Saint Mary’s Huskies 45-38 to win the At­lantic Univer­sity Sport football cham­pi­onship yes­ter­day.

As Loney Bowl cham­pi­ons, Aca­dia will host the On­tario cham­pion Western Mus­tangs on Satur­day in the Uteck Bowl na­tional semi­fi­nal.

The game was sup­posed to go down last Satur­day, but Saint Mary’s was side­lined amid con­cerns about the el­i­gi­bil­ity of one of its play­ers.

After a whirl­wind hear­ing over the week­end, Nova Sco­tia Supreme Court Jus­tice Deb­o­rah Smith ruled on Sun­day that the game should go ahead.
