Weekend Pronghorn Athletics preview

Nearing the midway point of the Canada West soccer schedule, the Pronghorn soccer teams renew acquaintances with southern Alberta rival Calgary Dinos this weekend with a home-and-home series, while women's rugby heads out on the road for a pair of contests.

Although the men's soccer team (0-5-1) is still in search of its first victory of the season, the club is coming off a strong effort last weekend, holding the CIS #3 ranked Alberta Golden Bears to a single goal in a 1-0 loss Saturday. The Horns then tied the Saskatchewan Huskies 1-1 to earn their first point of the season on Sunday.

This weekend, the Horns face a familiar foe in the Calgary Dinos (2-3-1) in a home-and-home series that begins Saturday in Calgary and end at home Sunday afternoon.

The women's soccer team (0-6-0) will also attempt to earn its first win of the season this weekend as they also face the Dinos (2-4-0).

Home games for the Horns go Sunday at the Community Sports Stadium with the women's contest at noon and the men's game to follow.

Horns Rugby

The women's rugby team (1-0 CW, 4-0 overall) heads out on the road for a pair of conference games on the west coast versus the Victoria Vikes and UBC Thunderbirds.

The Horns opened the inaugural Canada West women's rugby conference schedule with a convincing 66-0 win over the Calgary Dinos this past weekend.

The Horns face the Vikes Friday in Victoria, and conclude the road trip Sunday in Vancouver.

Men's Hockey

The Pronghorns men's hockey team (0-0-0 CW, 4-2-0 overall) completes its non-conference schedule with three games down south versus NCAA schools.

After winning the Huskie Alumni Classic tournament last weekend with a 3-1 victory over the Regina Cougars and a 6-5 shootout win over the defending Canada West Champion Alberta Golden Bears, the Horns face a daunting task against a trio of NCAA hockey schools.

Saturday night, the Horns will face Minnesota State-Mankato. Sunday, the Horns battle another Minnesota based school in the St. Cloud Huskies. To wrap up the trip and the non-conference schedule, the Horns face the Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks on Monday evening.

Women's Basketball

The women's basketball team hits the floor for the first time this season, traveling to Kamloops to compete in the BDO Dunwoody Tourney hosted by the Thompson Rivers WolfPack.

The Horns open the tournament against UBC-Okanagan on Friday, before playing the host Thompson Rivers WolfPack Saturday night. The tournament will conclude for the Horns Sunday morning versus the Calgary Dinos.
