The League leading Holland College Hurricanes made short work of the Dalhousie Football club in their Atlantic Football League Semifinal on Saturday, beating last year’s second place team 38-7.

Three touchdown’s by Dave Clarke set the tone for the Hurricanes, pounding the running game up the middle with the Tigers unable to shutdown the run game.

Demetrius Ferguson ran a kick-off back and Jeff Hillier scored on a brilliant 60-yard reception on a pass from standout quarterback Nick Hunsley.

The Tigers lone touchdown came from Greg Pelly, who also had a touchdown called back early in the game on an offensive holding call.

In the other semi-final matchup, the UNB Red Bombers squeaked out a come from behind 23-22 win over the defending Champion UNB Saint John Sea Wolves. The Red Bombers won when Evan McAulay slipped in his own endzone, causing his team to concede a single point on the final play of the game.

The Hurricanes will face the UNB Red Bombers on Saturday at 1pm on MacAdam Field, with home field advantage going to Holland College.
