Coming off their most dominant offensive performance of the year-- a 4-0 drubbing of the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns-- the University of Calgary Dinos men's soccer team looked to carry their momentum forward against two tough opponents last weekend.

First up for the Dinos was an afternoon match against the Trinity Western University Spartans, who entered play Saturday sporting a record of 4-2-1 in Canadian Interuniversity Sport Canada West competition.

  Dinos pressure not enough to thwart strong T-BirdsPDF files may take a moment to load

Just like the ancient 300 Spartans versus Persia in the Battle of Thermopylae, the University of Calgary Dinos field hockey team constantly forced the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds into defensive mode and made its offence fight for each inch of the field.

It ended in a close defeat, however, as the Thunderbirds held off to win 3-2 Sunday after winning 3-0 Saturday.

Coach Jenn Swagar still held her head up with a smile, noting the Thunderbirds had to fight hard for their victory.

Editor, the Gauntlet

["The U of C is going downtown," Sarelle Azuelos, Sept. 25, Gauntlet] So the provincial Conservatives are going to reward their incompetent "board of governor" appointees with even more money to build a second campus to spread their incompetence even further? Another of the main reasons that this overcrowded university usually ranks last in Maclean's, is that they have a monopoly in this city of over 1 million and students have no choice.

  Polling on campus a bittersweet victoryPDF files may take a moment to load

Students at the University of Calgary have scored a victory when it comes to having a federal polling station on campus. The poll in the dining centre located near the residence buildings, will be open for regular electoral hours Oct. 14.

Unfortunately, it's only for residence students. Students who live in the Calgary-West riding will have to go to their designated off-campus polling stations along with any student who lives outside of the Calgary-West riding.

  Comeback Kid takes an unconventional yet hardcore approachPDF files may take a moment to load

If one was to compare music to high school and bands to students then Comeback Kid is the hyperactive overachiever that isn't quite made from the same material as everyone else. The band takes an unconventional approach to hardcore music and has toured worldwide, garnering international attention and with signs of slowing down any time soon. In the past two years alone, Comeback Kid has been to almost every continent, touring Canada, the US, Australia, Southeast Asia, Japan, Europe, New Zealand, Iceland and numerous other areas.
