Tigers weekend recap (Oct. 19-21)
Corey Kirkhus - October 24, 2012
A busy couple of days for the Tigers saw a number of Dal’s teams travelling on the road this past weekend.
DAL 5 @ UdeM 0; DAL 2 @ UNB 1
Over the weekend the Tigers soccer teams hit the road to play their last two away games of the season. On Saturday the women forced a convincing victory over UdeM, scoring five goals with only five shots on net. Sunday’s match against UNB proved to be a closer game, but Dal pulled through after two goals by co-captain Rieka Santilli. The black and gold host MtA at Wickwire on Saturday at 1pm in their last season game.
DAL 1 @ UdeM 2; DAL 0 @ UNB 1
Men’s soccer battled it out against UdeM on Saturday in a close game that was tied 1-1 in the second half thanks to Julian Perotta. Unfortunately in the 90th minute the Aigles Bleus were able to sneak one by the Tigers keeper for the game winner. The following day at UNB proved to be just as frustrating with Dal losing by a goal that was scored late in the first half. On Saturday the men host MtA at 3:15pm in their last game of the regular season.
DAL 4 @ UdeM 6; DAL 5 @ STU 2
Two games in New Brunswick over the weekend saw the Tigers go 1-1, earning their first victory of the season. Friday’s game versus UdeM was an offensive showdown and despite scoring four goals, Dal fell short by two. The next day belonged to the black and gold and Bobby Nadeau earned player of the game honours in the 5-2 victory.
DAL 1 @ UdeM 3; DAL 0 @ STU 4
It was back-to-back games at home for the women’s hockey team this weekend as they coped with offensive difficulties. In their home opener at the Metro Centre on Saturday, Dal took on UdeM where they held their ground and forced a close game after a power play goal in the third. Sunday’s match up against STU at the Halifax Forum proved to be a greater challenge as the Tigers penalty minutes made the game an uphill battle.
DAL 76 @ Concordia 80; DAL 65 @ Carleton 68; DAL 74 @ Laurier 78
Carleton University hosted the Metro-Glebe Tournament this past weekend as the Tigers travelled to Ottawa to compete. Playing in three games, Dal went head-to-head with each of their opponents, making every match a nail biter for the crowd. Despite falling short in their second pre-season tournament, the women’s basketball team has shown tremendous potential and will be well prepared for their home opener November 9.
Aubrey Legere Invitational
Dal’s swim team participated in their first meet at the Aubrey Legere Invitational in Fredericton this past weekend. A strong start to the season saw the Tigers claim both the men’s and women’s team titles, as well as first place in the combined team score. Stand out swimmers included Molly Wedge, Rachel Shin, David Sharpe, and Kyle Watson.
