Volleyball

Briercrest volleyball hosts the University of Alberta, Augustana Vikings this weekend at the Margaret P. Reimer Memorial Gymnasium. It is sure to be an exciting weekend of volleyball with a loud and full crowd. The Briercrest women will be looking to get back into the win column after losing to a strong Lakeland side, while the Briercrest men will be looking to continue building momentum after an encouraging weekend sweep of Lakeland. The women will lead off competition both days, Friday, Nov. 9 at 6:00 pm followed by the men at 8:00 pm, and Saturday, Nov. 10 at 1:00 pm followed by the men at 3:00 pm.

Hockey

Hockey will be traveling to Edmonton this weekend to play the Concordia University College of Alberta Thunder in the fifth weekend of ACAC competition. After hosting Portage and holding the opposition to the least goals against of the season on Friday and then scoring the most goals in a game this season on Saturday, the hockey team is looking to combine those two games this weekend in order to get some points in the standings. Concordia currently sits in the last playoff spot, six points ahead of Briercrest, so this weekend is a key matchup in this young season. Game times are 7:30 pm on Friday, Nov. 9 at the Terwillegar Arena and 2:00 pm Saturday, Nov. 10 at Confederation Arena.
