Women’s Hockey split road games 

The Mount Allison Women’s hockey team was on the road this weekend for a pair of games against the Dalhousie Tigers and the St. Thomas Tommies.

On Friday night in Halifax, they beat the Tigers 3-2 in a close game. Mt. A trailed 2-0 before scoring three unanswered goals to win their second straight Atlantic University Sport matchup. Emily van Diepen scored the winning goal with five minutes and thirty-nine seconds left; Lindsay James and Shelby Colten also scored.

The Mounties lost a close game on Sunday, 4-3 to the St. Thomas University Tommies. Despite outshooting them 27-17, they couldn’t stop the Tommies’ attack.  Sarah Gagnier, Kristen Cooze, and Jennifer Dillon both scored for the Mounties.

The Mounties have two wins and two losses, and forward Courtney King is third in league, scoring with five points.

Huskies rain on Senior Mounties parade

This week, the Men’s Soccer team received news from the Atlantic University Sport that the Université de Moncton (UdeM) will grant them an extra win last Friday. UdeM used an ineligible player for a match against the Mounties, which will now result in a 3-0 win for Mount Allison. They had hoped to get their third win of the season on Sunday, against the Saint Mary’s Huskies, which marks their final game of the season.

Almost all of the starters had ceremonies prior to the game, as most of them are potential graduates this year. The list included Adrian Crace, Bradley Joseph, Jonathan O’Keefe, Ian Smith, John Cooney, Jonas Hammar, Leland Spettigue, Sam Bliss, and Kevin Seely.

The Huskies scored twice on the Mounties in the first half, and the teams battled the muddy MacAulay Field for the remainder of the match. The Mounties were unable to get past the Huskies defence, and The Huskies won by a final score of two-nil.

Mt. A victorious in return to Field Hockey

The Mount Allison Women’s Field Hockey team opened up their season this past Saturday with two exhibition games in Saint John against the University of New Brunswick Saint John. Despite the freezing cold and a turf field, the Mounties won both games. 

The score of the first game was 1-0 for Mt. A. The Mounties’ Katie Gordon scored the only goal in the first game.

The Mounties won the second game 3-1. Taylor McCuaig scored twice, and Caity Brown chipped in with the other goal. 

It is the first year in recent memory that Mt. A has had a Women’s Field Hockey team as in past years, Mt. A had trouble finding enough players to compete.
