Live blog: Acadia Axemen host Saint Mary’s Huskies in the 2017 Loney Bowl
The Saint Mary’s Huskies and the Acadia Axemen is facing off in Wolfville for the 2017 Loney Bowl.
The game is being played under a unique set of circumstances after a Nova Scotia Supreme Court judge sided with Saint Mary’s and granted the university an interim injunction on Sunday, allowing the game to be reinstated.
Saint Mary’s was originally disqualified by Atlantic University Sport (AUS) following concerns over player eligibility.
This prevented the Huskies from playing the Loney Bowl — the championship game in the AUS football division — which was supposed to take place this past weekend.
The winner of Tuesday’s Loney Bowl at Acadia University will move on to play in the Uteck Bowl against University of Western Ontario on Saturday.
In the last 17 years, Saint Mary’s has played in the AUS final 13 times, walking away with nine titles. Meanwhile, Acadia has made eight appearances in the finals and has four AUS titles.
