Pronghorn soccer teams at home

The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns men's and women's soccer teams return to the Community Sports Stadium this weekend for a pair of Canada West contests on Saturday and Sunday.

After a disappointing road trip that saw University of Saskatchewan and University of Alberta sweep both clubs respectively, the Horns look to get back on track on their home turf.

The women's team (0-4) looks to hit the win column for the first time, hosting the Regina Cougars and Manitoba Bisons Saturday and Sunday respectively.

The Cougars enter the weekend at 1-2-1 on the season while the Bisons are also winless at 0-2-2.

Kick-off for both games is at noon.

On the men's side, the Horns (1-3) face a pair of nationally ranked squads. On Saturday, Trinity Western Spartans (2-1) come to town. They are currently ranked seventh in the country. Things then get even tougher on Sunday when the second-ranked UBC Thunderbirds invade. Both games begin at 2 p.m.

Meanwhile, the Horns women's rugby team begins defense of its Canada West and CIS championships this weekend by traveling to the west coast to face the Victoria Vikes and CIS 8th-ranked UBC Thunderbirds.

The Horns, ranked first in the country, face a year of transition with the graduation of the most successful senior class in school history.

The Pronghorns women's hockey team plays a pre-season home-and-home series with the University of Calgary Dinos this weekend. Saturday, the teams square off in Calgary before returning to Lethbridge for a 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon tilt at Nicholas Sheran Arena.
