Posted: January 20, 2016

The second semester of 2015-16 continues this weekend as the hockey team hosts MacEwan. The basketball teams travel to Olds and volleyball travels to Red Deer.


The Briercrest hockey team hosts MacEwan University for their second last home stand of the 2015-16 season this weekend. MacEwan (8-11-3) are currently tied for the sixth and final playoff spot in the ACAC. They will play Friday, January 22 at 7:00 pm, followed by a 2:00 pm puck drop on Saturday. Briercrest fell to MacEwan last semester in Edmonton and hope to reverse the sweep this weekend. The ACAC hockey standings are very tight this season, so every game is important and has playoff ramifications.
