Axemen defeat Huskies in OT in Loney Bowl
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.
