Last April, one of the goaltenders for the UBC women's hockey team passed away abruptly, only a few days away from her 34th birthday. Over the next few hours, it became apparent that she had been yet another casualty to mental illness.
“I just felt we were inconsistent in our execution. We executed well in spurts, and then not as well at other times,” said head coach Kerry MacDonald of Friday’s match. “We hadn’t prepared for the lineup that we saw last night; that was a line they h
It's not revenge, but it's still pretty big. The Thunderbirds were able to start the new year successfully against the UBC Okanagan Heat (UBCO) and overtake them on the conference standings with back-to-back wins which consisted of a 3-0 win on Frida
The weekend doubleheader was a matchup between the two top teams in Canada West. The first game on Friday ended in a 3-1 win for the ’Birds, with goals from Cassandra Vilgrain, Nicole Saxvik and Haneet Parhar. Goalkeeper Amelia Boughn recorded anoth
Is the UBC men's hockey team perenially cursed to be humiliated at home by a Canada West rival, or is this the year where they surpass all our low expectation and take their rightful place as the best men's hockey team on campus?

The second game is where UBC really shined. A reasonable crowd of about 800 people was present for the team’s 102-76 rout of the Golden Bears. The T-Birds even put on a show during warmup, with many of the players displaying some pretty inten

The spirit of the NewYear gives T-Birds the chance to reflect on both the future and the past. In this edition of the 5-on-5, secrets of the traditional childhood family fishing trip are revealed — the athletes hold nothing back when it comes to th
In the second game, the ’Birds came out on top 4-2 on a come-from-behind win. “It’s huge going into the stretch here. I know [Saskatchewan] is definitely one of the best teams in Canada … and to beat them really gives us insurance going forward,” sa
