MEN'S ICE HOCKEY

The Mason Men’s Ice Hockey Club hosted Stevenson University on Friday evening at the Prince William Ice Center in what would be a long night for the men. Mason entered the contest shorthanded following the loss of Cameron Helfeldt for the season. Stevenson would take advantage of Mason's lack of depth in route to a 6-1 victory. Despite the lack of scoring, the Power Play was an area Mason found to be successful and will look to improve upon as they travel to Lehigh University on Saturday.

The club will look for a little revenge this weekend and grab their first win of the season as they travel to Georgetown on Saturday. The club will return home on Sunday host George Washington University at 10 AM on RAC Field.

WOMEN'S SOCCER

The Mason Women’s Club Soccer team hosted Salisbury University and The Naval Academy on Saturday as part round-robin play.
