Weekend roundup



The Mustangs' indoor hockey team felt a little under the weather last weekend, as they dropped three of four games in a tournament held in Toronto.

The team fell to Queen's University 2-0, the University of Toronto 4-1 and the University of Waterloo 4-1. Western did manage to pull out a victory against the Unversity of Guelph, by a 4-1 score.

Suffering from several injuries and with five players sick with the flu, Western was forced to play new lines.

Western head coach Keith Concisom said the missing players had an impact on the game. "It shortened up our rotation and made for a long weekend for some people. Even though we came away with one win we can still look at it as a good experience."

The Mustangs' fencing team was also in action over the weekend, as they brought a slew of precious medals back to Western from the Ontario University Athletics finals.

The Mustangs came away with a gold medal in the men's foil team category and a bronze in the men's epee category. The women's team took bronze in the women's epee. Overall, the team placed fifth at the tournament.
