‘Canes head to Halifax for last game of regular season
October 17, 2013
Charlottetown, PE – The Holland Hurricanes Football Club heads to Halifax Saturday to face the Dalhousie University Tigers in the final game of the regular season for both clubs. Going into this weekend’s play, the Tigers and the UNB Saint John Seawolves both have 4-1 records, and the Hurricanes and the UNB Red Bombers have identical 1-4 records.
This weekend’s game will determine the final standings and solidify the playoff picture. Should the ‘Canes beat the Tigers and the Seawolves beat the Red Bombers, the Hurricanes would move up into third place. All possible scenarios have the ‘Canes on the road for the semi-final playoff game next weekend.
In their previous meeting this season the Tigers handed the Hurricanes a home loss, the first time Dalhousie had defeated Holland College since the 2010 by a score of 56-40; but in a league that has achieved parity among its four clubs, both AFL contests this weekend are considered to be up for grabs.
“We’re looking to end the season on a winning note and head into the playoffs with some momentum. We’ve been close in every game this year, and we expect this game to be another exciting match-up,” said offensive coordinator Andrew Hickey.
This Saturday’s game takes place at 6 p.m. at Wickwire Field.
