After sweeping the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire last weekend 5-1 in both Saturday and Sundays’ games, the Assiniboine Cougars women’s hockey team is eager to again play on home ice this weekend. In American Collegiate Hockey Association Division II action, Assiniboine will play host to Lakehead University from Thunder Bay, ON and North Dakota State University from Fargo, ND for regular season games.

“Both Lakehead and NDSU are among the strongest in the ACHA,” said Assiniboine head coach Terry Arksey. “They both attended nationals last March and again have talented teams this season. This weekend’s games will give our team a good indication where we stand against the leagues best.”

Lakehead Thunderwolves sit with a record of 5-1-0-0 this season after capturing the national ACHA Division II title last year. North Dakota State Bison sit with a record of 3-3-0-0 and the Cougars will be working to avenge their early season overtime loss to the Bison. Assiniboine Cougars’ record is now 3-1-0-2.

All games this weekend count towards regular season standings. Assiniboine takes on the North Dakota State University Bisons Friday, November 10 at 8 p.m. On Saturday, they play the Lakehead University Thunderwolves at 7 p.m. and then again Sunday morning at 9 a.m. All games will take place at the Brandon Sportsplex.
