Hurricanes split weekend in Halifax

October 1, 2018

It was a weekend split for the Hurricanes in their final road trip to Halifax, NS this season; the men and women would each pick up one victory while also earning a loss.

On Saturday versus the MSVU Mystics, the men would earn the 4-2 win while the women dropped the match 5-1. On Sunday the women picked up the 4-0 win while the men dropped a close one by a score of 1-0.

First-half goals in the 10’, 21’ and 25’ for the women’s Mystics were followed by two more, in the 65’ and 71’ as they stormed away with the victory on Saturday.  The Hurricanes only goal came off the foot of Sabrina Molnar in the 90’ to break-up the MSVU shutout bid.

Sunday was a different story for the ‘Canes, as this time they were the ones bringing the offense.

Nicole Fergusson opened the scoring in the 22’, giving the Hurricanes the 1-0 lead entering halftime.

In the 50’, Kathrine McEwen increased the Hurricanes lead with goals from Laura Wells (64’) and Bethany MacDougall (74’), polishing off the 4-0 victory for Holland College.

Hailey Terstege earned the shutout victory for the Hurricanes.

With a record of 5-3-0, the ‘Canes continue to sit in third place in the ACAA standings.  They trail the STU Tommies (7-0-1) and Mystics (6-1-1) in the standings, but sit ahead of the fourth place UNBSJ Seawolves who are 2-2-3.

The Hurricanes men entered the weekend coming off of their first loss of the season the weekend prior. The focused group took a 2-0 lead versus MSVU on Saturday, with goals from Bobby Gamba (19’) and Shunya Kobayashi (26’) before the Mystics replied in the 28’ off the foot of Kwaku Agyare.

The offense continued, with a 2-1 lead, Kobayashi put another one on the board in the 36’ before Chris Garagan of the Mystics made it 3-2 in the 37’.  This is how the teams would enter the half.

It took until the 72’ for the ‘Canes to add an insurance goal, when Tegan Misener scored to put the ‘Canes up 4-2, earning them the victory.

After a combined six goals scored on Saturday, Sunday’s game versus the UKC Blue Devils was a different story.

A single goal scored by Will Fitzgerald in the 36’ was all that was needed to give the UKC Blue Devils the 1-0 victory over the Hurricanes.

This was a crucial win for the Blue Devils as it’s catapulted them to the top of the ACAA standings, now sitting in a tie with the Hurricanes but having one game in-hand.

The Hurricanes now sit at 5-2-1 with the win-loss this weekend.

Both the men’s and women’s Hurricanes return to action at home this Wednesday night at the Terry Fox Sports Complex in Cornwall, when they host the Crandall Chargers at 6 and 8pm (w/m).
