CIS hockey: Philippe Halley hat trick leads UNB men over Western
Marcioux stops 14 shots for the win
Philippe Halley scored three goals to lead the University of New Brunswick Varsity Reds to a 5-1 victory over the Western Mustangs in CIS quarter-final action on Friday in Halifax.
The Varsity Reds will play the winner of the UQTR Patriotes and Saint Mary's Huskies quarter-final matchup in Saturday's semifinal.
Matt Petgrave, while shorthanded, and Cameron Brace also scored for UNB.
"We wanted to come out and get the pace going, and I think we were able to do that," UNB coach Gardiner MacDougall said. "We played really good 'D' overall and we got shots on goal."
Cody Brown had a short-handed goal for the Mustangs late in the third period.
Etienne Marcioux stopped 14 shots for the win. Western's Greg Dodds made 40 saves in the losing effort.
