Weekend preview

By Dylan Matthias, Sports Editor


It’s Thanksgiving weekend. It’s a weekend where everyone is thankful for what we have and what has been and a weekend where Gazette sportswriters are thankful that we get a bit of a break to recharge before the first round of fall playoff run-ins.

AUS breaks for Thanksgiving, so there’s little to choose from this week, meaning university sport fanatics are up a creek.

Fortunately, whenever there’s a break in the schedule, Dal Hockey skates along to fill it right up. The Dalhousie men’s hockey team will play two preseason games at Memorial Arena on the weekend against the teams responsible for them missing the playoffs last year.

The Tigers take on UPEI on Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Moncton on Saturday at the same time.

Around the league, Acadia take on St. Thomas this weekend and Saint Mary’s host St. FX tonight at 7 p.m.

AUS football, with its short playing schedule, never sleeps. Unfortunately, it’s sleeping with someone else tonight and Halifax football fans will have to watch on webcast as SMU take on St. FX in Antigonish or on EastLink TV where Mt. Allison host Acadia.

On Saturday, the cross-country team will be in Fredericton at the UNB Invitational exhibition meet, the last chance for athletes to tune up before the AUS championship at St. FX.

King’s soccer hosts Nova Scotia Agricultural College next Wednesday at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.. You’ll have to drive out to Mainland Commons in Lacewood to see it, but if you do, it should be a fairly easy win for both King’s teams.
