Doyle reflects on head coaching experience with hockey Martlets

An 86-game winning streak, three players on all-Canadian teams, and a silver-medal finish at Nationals. Not a bad result for a first -year hockey coach. Then again, experience with the team is one thing Martlets interim Head Coach Amey Doyle had in spades when she took over Canada's most successful women's hockey program from Peter Smith at the beginning of the year.

WOMEN’S SOCCER: Second half surge sinks Sherbrooke

The third ranked Martlets got off to a slow start in Friday night's season opener at Molson Stadium. But a much stronger second half allowed them to escape with a 2-0 victory over the visiting Sherbrooke Vert et Or. Neither side had been able to find any rhythm or assert itself during the first frame.

THIRD MAN IN: Sportsophobia

Sports are boring. Let's talk about baseball - I don't care if it is "America's pastime," but when a game only becomes exciting after two and a half hours and consists of waiting to find out whether a player will hit the ball - or if it's really heated, whether a player will catch it - then I believe it's time to find a better way to spend the afternoon.

PROFILE-MEN’S ROWING: From flyers to a flying finish

Over the summer, the U4 physiology student finished third in the Men's Coxed Pair at the under-23 World Rowing Championship in Eton, UK, becoming the first McGill rower to ever reach the podium at a World Championship.

MEN’S SOCCER: Redmen stutter to victory

With Sherbrooke having prevented the Redmen from reaching the playoffs in each of the last two seasons, it's not difficult to imagine why this meeting was such a scrappy affair. And while it won't erase the memories of post-season dreams dashed, McGill managed to exact a little revenge by edging out a 2-1 victory at Molson Stadium.

Indoor season ends in defeat

While the average women's soccer fan at McGill might point to the team's impressive conference record and harvest of major year-end awards as signs of a successful 2009-10 campaign, the Martlet players and coaching staff aren't nearly satisfied with the season's results.

Seeing red: Hockey Redmen bounced from Nationals early

The CIS University Cup tournament is no place for the faint of heart. Two games can catapult a team to the doorstep of national glory, or just as easily dash their dreams of a historic season. The Redmen discovered this painful truth last week at Nationals, after losing 4-2 to the Atlantic University Sport Champion St.
