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.
