CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

The Holland College Hurricanes soccer teams host the Dal AC Rams tonight in Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association (ACAA) regular season action at the Terry Fox Sports Complex in Cornwall.
The men and women will play on side-by-side fields simultaneously at 7 p.m.
Holland College's women squad enters the weekend sitting atop the ACAA standings after going 2-0-0 during their opening weekend while the Rams sit in fourth place at 0-1-1.
“We have had a great start to the season, but this weekend will be another tough test,” said head coach Kris McKinnon. “The team knows that every match in the ACAA is a battle, so we’ll have to be prepared.”
The men’s Hurricanes sit in a tie for second in the conference standings entering Friday’s match at 1-0-1 while Dal AC is 0-2-0.
“After the first weekend of games, it shows that the ACAA will be a very tight conference this year,” said head coach Jonathan Vos. “We will need to be at our best to get results this weekend.”
After a day off on Saturday, the ‘Canes will hit the road on Sunday when they take on the Crandall Chargers in Moncton. The women will play at noon, followed by the men at 2 p.m.
Hurricanes midfielder Nikki Roberts of Brackley Beach likes how the roster has adjusted as a team early on in the season.
“We are coming off of a great weekend at home with six big points,” she said. “We’re looking to keep that momentum going into this weekend with a game at home and on the road. It’s a short season, so every point matters.”
The men’s Chargers are also 0-1-0 after an opening weekend loss to UNBSJ at home.
Dan Martell, a centre back from Eldon, looks to carry the positive play from last weekend into this weekend.
“I think it was a good performance for our first two regular-season games as a team,” said Martell. “With that being said though, there’s still room to improve and come back even better.
“I loved the battle-back we showed for the tie against (King's) on Sunday.”
