Concordia’s hockey and basketball teams have already started their holiday break from league play, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be busy. Both women’s teams will see action as they take part in exciting tournament action.

The women’s basketball team, coached by Keith Pruden, will enter the University of Waterloo Tournament December 28 to 30 in Waterloo, Ont. The Stingers, who are 4-9 overall and 1-4 in league play, have their next league game January 12, when they host Ryerson at 6 p.m.

The women’s hockey team, coached by Les Lawton, is set to host the Theresa Humes Tournament at Concordia from January 5 to 7 at the Ed Meagher Arena. The team swings back into league action January 12 when they travel across town to face McGill at McConnell Arena, beginning at 7 p.m. The Stingers will warm up for that contest by playing CEGEP St. Laurent two days previous in a non-conference match-up.

The women’s hockey team is in first place after wins over McGill (7-3) and UQTR (3-1). Leane Martell led the way with two goals and two assists against McGill, while M.C. Allard had a goal and two assists against UQTR.

“I’m very pleased with the way the team played,” said Lawton. “We played with intensity, which is something we’ve been working on.”

The men’s hockey team, which had been on a roll, dropped their last two games before the break. The Stingers were beaten at home by the York Yeomen (3-1) and the Guelph Gryphons (7-5). They also had a game against the first-place UQTR Patriotes postponed because the Zamboni ice re-surfacing machine conked out in Trois-Rivières.

Coach Kevin Figsby and the boys resume league play January 10, when the undefeated Patriotes pay a visit to the Meagher Arena.

The men’s basketball team will travel to Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia to take part in the Rod Shoveller Tournament January 5 to 7. Coach John Dore has his team ranked seventh in the CIAU with a 5-1 league record and 10-3 overall mark. Their next league game is January 12 when they host Ryerson at 8 p.m.
