Men's hockey team needs a win

The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns men's hockey team needs to get back in the win column but it will not be an easy task this weekend when they head to Edmonton to face the Alberta Golden Bears.

The Pronghorns (12-10-0) have followed an eight-game winning streak with a four-game losing skid and while they still have a hold on fourth place in the Canada West standings, the race is tightening. The Bears (18-2-2) are defending Canada West and CIS champions and swept the Horns in their first meeting of the season.

The puck drops at 7:30 p.m. both Friday and Saturday nights at storied Clare Drake Arena in Edmonton. Click on this Canada West hockey scores link for live scoring.


The Pronghorn basketball teams will conclude their home schedules this weekend at the 1st Choice Savings Centre gym when they play host to University of Saskatchewan Huskies.

Having both been eliminated from post-season contention, the Pronghorns are both looking to build for next season.

The women's team (4-16) looks to finish on a positive note but will face a tough challenge in the Central Division leading and CIS third-ranked Huskies (17-3).

The Horns have had a solid second half, upsetting three quality Canada West opponents, including two nationally-ranked teams. The Huskies have clinched top spot in the division and will have a bye in the opening round of the playoffs.

The men's team (4-16) has won only one of its last 14 games after a 3-3 start to the year and is currently on a 10-game losing skid. They'll meet a Huskies team that is 9-11 on the year, having gone 8-8 since winning just one of their first four starts.

Game times both nights see the women hit the floor at 6 p.m., followed by the men's game at 8:15 p.m.
