Women’s Hockey – The U of R (1-1-0) opened up its Canada West schedule with a home split against Calgary. The Dinos scored a 4-3 win on Friday, but the Cougars recovered with a 2-1 victory on Saturday night. Rianne Wight had a huge weekend for Regina, scoring twice on Friday and adding another two – including the game winner with four minutes left – during the win on Saturday. Kelcie McCutcheon was also all over the scoresheet, assisting on all five of the team’s goals over the two games. The Cougars will play a home-and-home against Saskatchewan (2-0-0) this weekend, hosting the Huskies on Friday night at The Co-Operators Centre before the two teams meet in Saskatoon on Saturday.

Men’s Hockey – Terrance DeLaronde had a three-point night to power the Cougars (2-2-0) to a 5-2 road win over Manitoba on Friday night, but the Bisons earned the split with a convincing 7-0 victory on Saturday. The Cougars are right back in action this weekend with a home-and-home against the Saskatchewan Huskies (1-1-0). The two teams will meet in Saskatoon on Friday night and in Regina at The Co-Operators Centre on Saturday night. Both games will face off at 7 p.m.

Men’s Basketball – The Cougars dispatched Briercrest College by a score of 126-80 in an exhibition game last Wednesday. The team is back in action this weekend, as Regina will host the University of Toronto in two non-conference games – on Thursday in Estevan, and on Friday back in Regina. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. on both nights.

Rams Football (CIS Ranking: No. 4) – The Rams return to the field on Saturday after the bye week against the Manitoba Bisons, who are tied for fifth in the conference with a 1-4 record. The two teams have already met once this season, with the Rams opening the schedule with a 45-11 victory over the Bisons in Regina on Sept. 3. Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. CDT at University Stadium in Winnipeg, and Michael Ball and Chad Ehman will have the call live on 620 CKRM.

Women’s Basketball – The injury-depleted Cougars played three non-conference games in Edmonton over the weekend, losing 84-71 to Windsor on Friday before defeating Laurentian 82-63 on Saturday and edging Western Ontario 71-70 on Sunday. The team went into the weekend without injured all-conference post Brittany Read, then lost backup post Anne Mercer – who was starting in place of Read – early in the Laurentian game. The Cougars, who are 4-1 against CIS competition this season, continue their non-conference schedule this weekend in Winnipeg.

Cross Country (Men’s CIS Ranking: No. 8) – The men’s and women’s cross country teams will travel south for the Minot State Invitational on Friday afternoon. The Cougars have just two meets remaining on the schedule, including the Stewart Cup (Oct. 30) in Calgary and the CIS Championships (Nov. 13) in Sherbrooke, Que., where the U of R men’s team will attempt to repeat as conference champs.

Men’s Volleyball – The Manitoba Bisons put up a perfect 5-0 record to win the 2010 Cougar Invitational, a six-team, three-day non-conference men’s volleyball tournament at the CKHS. The host Cougars pushed three of their matches to five sets, but ended up in sixth place with an 0-5 record. Regina will have non-conference matches against SAIT and Mount Royal on Oct. 22 and Oct. 23 before opening up the Canada West schedule in early November.
