Andrew Hood of the Alberta Golden Bears could not be stopped as the Huskies’ winless streak continued Oct. 1 and 2 in Edmonton.
The Dogs faced the Bears twice this past weekend, losing 2-1 in the first game and tying the second game 1-1. Hood, a midfielder who was switched to striker for the weekend in order to spark Alberta’s offence, scored all three goals for the Bears.
The Huskies women’s soccer team handed the Alberta Pandas only their second loss of the season Oct. 2 with a 3-2 win at Foote Field in Edmonton.
After splitting goals in the first 10 minutes to open the game, the remainder of the first half was all Huskies as their three goals within the half proved too much for the Pandas.
Ben Coakwell’s presence was exactly what the University of Saskatchewan Huskies offence needed to get out of their slump.
The running back rushed for over 200 yards and had two touchdowns in the Huskies’ 36-33 win over the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds at Griffiths Stadium Sept. 30. It was only his second game of the season as he was sidelined early in the year with a shoulder injury.
The University of Saskatchewan Huskies football team squared off against the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds Sept. 30 at PotashCorp Park for the Huskies Homecoming game. Final score: 36-33 for Saskatchewan. The game marked the 170th career win for Huskies head coach Brian Towriss, setting a new CIS record.
Using his influence and elite hockey status, Bob McKenzie has certainly inspired an in-depth look into the ugly side of “crazy” minor-hockey parents.
McKenzie himself admits that since his sons have grown to the ages of 22 and 25, he doesn’t spend as much time around the rinks as he used to. So if these jaw-dropping and seemingly scandalous stories of calling stick measurements on 11-year-olds happened more than a decade ago, how bad has it really gotten?
The National Collegiate Athletic Association recently adopted a new policy for transgender athletes, but Canadian Interuniversity Sport and many other Canadian athletic associations are in no rush to do the same.
The NCAA’s policy states that any athlete who has testosterone in their system as the result of medical treatment cannot compete on a women’s team. The CIS, however, will likely not implement its own transgender policy any time soon. It is waiting for a set of guidelines from the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport on how best to include transgender athletes within their league.
The Huskies men’s soccer team saw their three-game winning streak ended in their final match of this past weekend.
The Dogs played two games on the road Sept. 17 and 18 against the University of Fraser Valley Cascades and the University of Victoria Vikes. They defeated the Cascades 4-1 in the first game but were upset 2-1 by the Vikes on the following day.
The wind got the best of the University of Saskatchewan Huskies on Sept. 17 as the Manitoba Bisons handed them their first loss of the season.
