MEN'S ICE HOCLEY
Men’s Ice Hockey traveled to Lehigh University this past weekend in one of their tougher match-ups of the season. Lehigh got out to a quick start, scoring 3 goals in the first 5 minutes. Mason began to push back closing the score 4-2. Injuries and a short bench proved to be too much for Mason to overcome, as Lehigh was able to resist their efforts and secure the 10-5 victory on their home ice. The coaching staff was able to get many of the new players significant playing time in the third period which will hopefully add depth throughout the lineup over the course of the season. The men have little down time as they travel to Penn State - Berks on Friday and will return home on Sunday evening to face Towson University @ 8PM at the PW Ice Center in Dale City, VA.
The Men's Club Lacrosse team traveled to Bel Aire, MD this past weekend to compete in the Chesapeake Cup featuring many top teams from the region. The men would finish the weekend with a record of 2-1 and their only loss coming during game 1 of the tournament against Toon Squad. The highlight of the weekend came during their final game of the weekend against UMBC. Mason entered the match-up on a 9-year losing streak against UMBC, but they were having none of that. Following a tight first half that ended in a 2-2 tie, Mason was able to overcome a late push by UMBC to secure the 4-2 victory.
The Club Tennis team traveled to Ocean City, MD this weekend to take part in the Tennis on Campus Ocean City Invitational. Saturday would prove to be a long afternoon for the club as they faced Salisbury University and UMBC. In the first match of the afternoon, Karolina S. won her singles match 6-1; Abiral P. won his singles match 6-4; Alex P. and Amilcar G. won their doubles match 6-2; and Emily A. and Alex P. would secure a 6-3 win for mixed doubles.
