CORNWALL — The Holland Hurricanes men’s and women’s soccer teams will host two opponents from Nova Scotia at the Terry Fox Complex this weekend.
The Hurricanes will take on the Mount Saint Vincent Mystics and the Kings’ College Blue Devils in Atlantic Colleges Athletic Association soccer action.
The women, who currently sit in second place at 4-1-1, are only two points behind the Mystics, and two points ahead of the Blue Devils.
The games will not just be important in the win column but also for a great cause, as suggested by the Hurricanes’ Melanie Taylor.
“This weekend, against the Mystics and Blue Devils, is very important to our team, our coaches as well to the fans and those coming out as donations will be accepted in support of Kristen Cameron,” said Taylor. “Playing two of the top teams in the same weekend means we have a lot to prove to ourselves and the opposing teams since we’ve yet to get a win from both teams.
“These two games are the perfect opportunity to make the benefit for Kristen to be full of excitement and good soccer.”
Cameron, from Charlottetown, was seriously injured when a vehicle recently hit her in Erie, Pa., where she is an assistant coach with the Mercyhurst College women’s hockey team.
The women play today at 2 p.m. and Sunday at noon.
On the men’s side, the second-place Hurricanes (3-2-0) will be looking to avenge a 1-0 loss to the Mystics on Sept. 12, where a penalty-kick goal proved to be the difference.
The Hurricanes are tied for second place with the Mystics, and are only three points ahead of UKC.
The men play MSVU today at 4 p.m. and UKC on Sunday at 2 p.m.
