The Briercrest basketball teams will be hosting both Olds and Red Deer this weekend as they finish off the first third of their season. Women’s basketball will be hosting two teams with identical 2-3 records in Olds and Red Deer. These teams are also tied for the fourth and final playoff spot in the ACAC South. The Briercrest men will be face an Olds team (2-3) Friday night who are in a three way tie for third place in the ACAC South division, before facing an undefeated Red Deer (5-0) who are ranked number four in the CCAA.

The Briercrest hockey team will be hosting ACAC leading and undefeated NAIT (14-0) this weekend to end the first half of their season. NAIT has a strong team both offensively and defensively as they have scored 86 goals, which is 32 more goals then the next potent offense in the ACAC, and have allowed five less than the next stingiest defense (26). The Briercrest hockey team has had some strong games this season and look to put together their best games against the league’s best this weekend, as they look to gain ground in the ultra-competitive ACAC this season. There are only nine points separating second from eighth in the standings! Game times at the Barkman Arena are 7:00 pm on Friday, November 20 and 2:00 pm Saturday, November 21.
