As their local team gears up to host the country at the 2015 CIS University Cup in Halifax, four clubs from the Antigonish Minor Hockey Association are also preparing to make the trip to Halifax. When they arrive, they will be taking on the Halifax Hawks!

To celebrate this month’s University Cup, the Halifax Hawks are hosting the Antigonish Bulldogs for a four game series in Halifax. The score from each game will carry over to the next game and the winning team will be awarded with a banner on Sunday to commemorate the series’ victory.

The puck drops on the series on Saturday, March 14 at 9:30 a.m. at the BMO Centre in Bedford as the Atom AA teams from the two associations hit the ice. The final score from that game will be carried over to the Halifax Forum where the Bulldogs will face the Hawks in Peewee AAA play at 11 a.m.. The series continues at the Spryfield Lions Rink at 1 p.m. (Female Midget A) before wrapping up Sunday at the Scotiabank Centre at 10 a.m. when the Bantam AA teams from the two associations will determine the winner of the series.

The series is meant to be a fun promotion of the CIS University Cup and it will help celebrate the cooperation between St. FX and Saint Mary's in hosting the event. The winning association will be presented with a championship banner at the end of the game at the Scotiabank Centre on Sunday.

This is just part one of the Antigonish-Halifax CIS University Cup series. The two minor hockey associations will compete again in 2016 when Halifax will once again play host to the CIS University Cup. The Saint Mary's Huskies have already earned a berth in that event as the host school.

Good luck to the Halifax Hawks and the Antigonish Bulldogs this weekend. Have fun!
