It was a tough weekend for the University of Calgary Dinos Field hockey team. The Dinos headed to Victoria to try and grab second place in the CIS West to advance to the playoffs. The Dinos needed to win both games over the weekend to guarantee a second place finish. Instead they won their first game 1-0 and lost their second 2-1. The Dinos now sit two games behind the Vikes.
Calgary's Claire Beaton and Laurel Kuntz scored the Dinos' goals on the weekend.
The Dinos now move on to face a winless University of Alberta Golden Pandas squad at home this weekend. If Calgary can win both of their games against the team then their national hopes will remain in the hands of Victoria who play the first place UBC Thunderbirds.
Victoria needs to lose both games of the series in order for the Dinos to clinch a spot in the national playoffs next month.
The Dinos play their next two games against the U of A Golden Pandas on Oct. 23 and 24 at 1 p.m. at Hawkins Field.
The Dinos swept the Pandas in Edmonton a couple of weeks ago and will be looking to carry on that momentum into their upcoming games.
