It will be a weekend full of exciting games for the Hurricanes as four of our fall sports teams will be concluding their regular seasons.
The women’s soccer ‘Canes will host their final home game of the 2022 Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association (ACAA) regular season this Saturday at the Terry Fox Sports Complex in Cornwall, when they welcome the Crandall University Chargers to town for a 1pm match.
The Hurricanes enter the weekend at 5-2-3 and in third in the conference standings, while the Chargers are 4-7-0 and in fifth. The ‘Canes won the only meeting with Crandall so far this season on October 6 by a score of 2-0.
On Sunday, the ‘Canes will conclude their regular season in Truro, NS versus the Dalhousie Agricultural Campus (Dal AC) Rams at 1pm. The Rams are 0-10-0 this season and in seventh.
The Hurricanes could finish anywhere from second to fourth depending on the weekend results. Mount Saint Vincent University (MSVU) leads with 24 points, one up on the University of New Brunswick Saint John (UNBSJ) Seawolves. The ‘Canes trail UNBSJ by five-points, with the STU Tommies sitting in fourth a further three-points back. The Chargers currently sit in fifth, three-points out of the playoffs; the top-four teams will qualify for the ACAA Championship in Fredericton, October 28-30.

The men’s soccer Hurricanes also host the Crandall Chargers on Saturday with a kickoff scheduled for 3:15pm. The ‘Canes sit in second in the ACAA standings with a 5-2-3 record this season.
The Chargers, 1-9-1, sit in seventh in the ACAA. They fell to the ‘Canes on October 6, 7-1, in the only previous matchup with Holland College this season.
The Hurricanes regular season will conclude on Sunday in Truro versus Dal AC at 3:15pm. The Rams enter at 2-6-2 and in sixth; these two teams tied on October 12 in Cornwall, 0-0.
The ‘Canes could finish as high as second, but as low as fourth after this weekend’s games.

2022 has seen the return of women’s rugby to Holland College, and they’re set to play an important match this Sunday at Co-Op Field in Charlottetown. The ‘Canes will take on the UKC Blue Devils at 2pm in a battle for third in the ACAA standings.
The ‘Canes, 3-3, are coming off a dominant 49-0 victory over the STU Tommies on Tuesday night in Charlottetown. They sit tied with the Blue Devils who are 3-2, with a game in-hand. This is the first time the ‘Canes have met UKC this season.
The Hurricanes will be looking to finish the regular season strong with their sights set on a third-place finish in the standings entering the ACAA playoffs beginning October 29. The top seed will face the fourth ranked team in one semi-final, while the second and third seeds will square off in the other semi-final match.

Fresh off a 45-14 home victory on Saturday versus the UNBSJ Seawolves, the football ‘Canes are back to conclude their 2022 regular season at the Terry Fox Sports Complex versus the University of New Brunswick (UNB) Reds this Saturday; kick-off is at 6pm.
The ‘Canes, 2-3 and in third in the standings, are looking to avenge their October 1st 12-9 loss in Fredericton, while the Reds (4-1) are looking to clinch the number one seed entering the playoffs.
A Hurricanes win on Saturday could set up semi-final matchup with UNB in Fredericton, with the Dalhousie University Tigers, also 4-1, squaring off with the winless Seawolves on Saturday in Saint John. While a ‘Canes loss on Saturday opens the opportunity to face either UNB or Dalhousie in the playoffs with many factors in play.
