Kinsella Noseworthy-Smith of Wolfville scored the game's only goal just past the 60-minute mark. Assisted by the traditionally strong Axewomen defense, Carrie Wood of Coldbrook turned aside all four shots she faced to earn the shutout.
The Axewomen move on to meet top-ranked UNB in semifinal action Nov. 1 at 11 a.m.
The news wasn't as good for the Axemen at the AUS men's championship in St. John's, NL. The Acadia men were eliminated with a 3-1 quarter-final loss to UPEI.
The Panthers led 1-0 at halftime on a goal by former Axeman James Mallard. First-team all-conference backfielder Andrew Snyder got that goal back for the Axemen in the opening minute of the second half, assisted by Corey Cadeau of Coldbrook.
UPEI, however, responded to clinch the victory on late goals from Kieran Moore, with Mallard earning an assist, and Jared Murphy.
