CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - The Holland College Hurricanes return to Memorial Field at Victoria Park for four home games this weekend when they host the University of New Brunswick on Saturday and Acadia University on Sunday.

Games are scheduled for 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. each day.

The Hurricanes have gotten off to a fast start this season, leading the Canadian Collegiate Baseball Association Atlantic Conference with a 5-1 record, so head coach Andrew MacNevin said because his team has been playing well it’s confident heading into the weekend.

“UNB are our rivals, so it’s a big weekend for us,” MacNevin said. “If we pitch well and keep the bats going I feel like we have a good chance to win this weekend.”

In the opening weekend Holland College swept the Axemen in Wolfville, N.S., while last weekend in Fredericton, N.B., the ‘Canes swept UNB.

The other victory was versus the St. FX X-Men in a split of a two-game series in Charlottetown.

Brady Arsenault starts Game 1 on Saturday, while Colin Arsenault takes to the mound for Game 2.

On Sunday, Charles MacLellan gets the call for in the first game against Acadia. Steven Conway starts Game 2.
