The Holland Hurricanes men’s and women’s soccer teams will finish their pre-season schedule this weekend; the men will visit the UPEI Panthers on Saturday at 7pm with the women hosting the University of Maine-Fort Kent Bengals on Monday at 11am at the Terry Fox Sports Complex in Cornwall.
The Hurricanes are preparing for the beginning of their ACAA regular seasons which begin at home on Saturday, September 8 when they host the Dal AC Rams at 2pm (women) and 4pm (men) in Cornwall.
“The first few days of camp have gone very well,” shared women’s head coach Kris McKinnon. “With a large number of new players, we have had great competition for roster spots thus far. We are happy with the quality of play; we have some difficult decisions to make between now and the start of the regular season.”
The women’s Hurricanes are motivated to have a bounce-back season in 2018 after missing the playoffs last year for only the second time in team history; they completed the regular season with a record of 4-5-3.
The men’s Hurricanes are coming off a 1-0 exhibition loss to the University of Moncton Aigles Bleu on Wednesday in Moncton, NB.
“Camp is going well,” shared men’s head coach Jonathan Vos. “We have a lot of new faces in the lineup this season and it’s going to be very competitive for roster spots. We were pleased with our first exhibition game and look forward to seeing more on Saturday night versus UPEI.”
The men’s ‘Canes are the 2017 CCAA National bronze medalists as well as the reigning four-time ACAA Champions.
The Hurricanes are hosts of the 2018 CCAA National Men’s Soccer Championship at the Terry Fox Sports Complex in Cornwall; the event takes place November 6 through 10.
