There is something about the 2013-14 Mount Allison Mounties women’s hockey team that just will not let them quit. Twice these playoffs, they have lost game one of a three game series against two of the top teams in the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) conference.

Nothing On is the worst play I’ve ever seen performed at Mount Allison.
