The men’s Hurricanes enter the weekend in first place in the ACAA standings with a 7-1 record while the Dragons have struggled to a 0-6 record.

In previous matchups on November 18 and 19, the ‘Canes earned wins over the Dragons in Charlottetown in straight sets.

This week the CCAA placed the Hurricanes at number 13 in their national rankings; they are the only ACAA team that is ranked.
