The men’s teams faced off Saturday at 8 p.m. with Camosun making a comeback to win. The team again faced the Avalanches men’s team on Sunday at 1 p.m., concluding the weekend with yet another win for the Chargers.

The Chargers will next face the Capilano University Blues on Friday, Nov. 15 at an away game in North Vancouver.
