Feb. 9: Cougars 4 Bisons 2

BISONS BLOW CHANCE AT SECOND

The Bisons blew a gift-wrapped opportunity to finish second, and get the quarter-final bye and hosting rights for the semi-final that go along with that. As usual, they outshot the Kittens (42-27) but most of that margin came in the 3rd period.

Dylan Kelly (his 8th) opened scoring in the 1st period and all seemed well. But the Kittens rallied to take the lead before the period ended, and extended the lead to 3-1 after two periods.

Tyler Dittmer scored his 15th of the season in a late charge in the 3rd period.

So, next weekend the Banjo-Cats will be in town for the quarter-finals. The good news is that the Bisons have dominated them at the Max Bell. A win there would then mean a trip to Saskatown to play the Banjo-Mutts. At one time the Rutherford Dump was bad news for the Herd. But in recent years the Bisons have become a big team and the tiny rink suits their style.

I do not believe that anybody thought there was the slightest chance in He!! that Lethbridge would win this one, and the didn't. They did manage to show some fight and stage a bit of a comeback. But falling behind 5-0 after two periods limits your options. The 1st period remained scoreless until the last couple minutes and then the floodgates opened.

Indeed, Friday was their chance at the upset, and it nearly happened. My theory that in most series the underdog will make at least one game close was borne out in this series. I guess that the Regina performance also bears this out.

The CanadaWest.tv broadcast was better than usual because the Lethbridge College student techs were doing a project with multi-cameras, replays, and the whole bit.

Once again, the H0rny Ones were short-staffed. Only 17 players were dressed.


ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 5
UBC THUNDERBIRDS 2

This game was a play-out-the-string affair for both sides. The Monkeys were destined to finish #1 and the Tweety-Birds #5, yet again.

The scoeline might be a bit misleading. It was a 3-2 game when the Monkeys scored an empty-netter in the final minute, and then scored yet another.

Next weekend the Monkeys will stay in Saudi Alberta whilst the 'Birds will travel to the Town of Bedrock to face the Dinosaurs. UBC would have to rank as an underdog, but one with a significant chance at an upset. However, Calgary would have a much better chance against Alberta in the semi-final round.

On the CW Schedule/Results page, they have a "Live Video" link only for the semi-final hosted by Alberta.
http://www.canadawest.org/calendar.a...012-13&sport=6

However, at CanadaWest.tv, if you search "men's hockey" you get all three games in the Manitoba v Regina quarter final.
http://canadawest.tv/

I suspect that the series hosted by Sask and Calgary will be added as well.

Hey, it is playoff time already. Last week there were permutations and combinations galore in every conference. Now, it is all so simple. Win 2-out-of-3 and move on. Otherwise it is season over.

As usual in the CW, the whole series is hosted by one team. So all three games are slated for the Max Bell Arena. If the Bisons win then they will make a trip to Saskatown next weekend to face the Banjo-Mutts.

No detailed preview of this series is really necessary - Just read last week's and add the two post-game posts. The one point to make is that it is hard to whip a team 7 straight times in a season. So after getting 6 one-sided wins the Banjo-Cats were bound to steal one. Could the Hillbillies actually steal two in one weekend? They would need spectacular goaltending. They have split duties down the middle between Lucas Gore and Andrew Hayes. Like all six playoff teams, they are blessed with capable goaltenders.

While the Bisons have a clearly superior defence, and a vastly superior set of forward lines, it is always possible for goaltending to equalize. Frankly, it is Regina's only chance.


Goaltending will be the key to any Regina upset.

As I post there are still no plans to stream this series on CanadaWest.tv. But sometimes arrangements are made on short notice.

These two teams are traditional quarter-final opponents. In fact, they met just last year. UBC won game one before the Bedrock Boys came back to win games two and three, before they went on to finish as conference runner-up for the second consecutive season.

This season, UBC won the first match-up 4-2 on October 12th. Calgary then won the rest: 7-4 on October 13th, 6-2 on January 4th, and 2-1 in overtime on January 5th.

UBC's playoff woes are well-documented. Perhaps it is time that they rolled all past disappointments up into a ball and made up for it with one completely remarkable unexpected roll to a University Cup. But I very much doubt that will happen. The Tweety-Birds are a solid mid-pack team. They are ranked #18 in the OHT35, which means there are 17 teams ahead of them and 17 others behind them. IMO they have about a 35% chance to beat the Dinos. And if they were to do so they would be even less likely to win another round.

Feb. 15: Bisons 6 Cougars 2

HERD CLAIM CONVINCING WIN IN OPENER


REGINA COUGARS 2
MANITOBA BISONS 6

The Bisons racked up a convincing, though at times lacklustre, win in game one of their quarter-final series against the Banjo-Cats. With the Jets hosting the Penguins, the crowd was the smallest I have ever seen. Even smaller than the crowds these teams drew to their pre-season series. My guess is there will be a much bigger audience for game two on Saturday.

The Bisons kicked the Kittens from pillar to post for most of the first 25 minutes en route to a 3-0 lead. Each of the Duval-Macaulay-Dittmer line scored a PP goal in that time (and in that order). Though the lead was nice, it killed any prospect for stimulating hockey. The Herd led on the shot clock 19-10 at the 1st intermission, and that was extended early in the 2nd period.

Once ahead 3-0 it was kitty-bar-the-door hockey. The Bisons rarely attempted to commit to offence. Troy Hunter scored a PP goal for the Cougars mid-way through the 2nd period. However, Del Cowan replied for the Bisons to make it 4-1 by intermission.

The Bisons played kill-the-clock for most of the 3rd period. However after 5 minutes Hunter notched his 2nd of the night to make it 4-2. Macaulay's empty-netter followed by Paul Ciarelli's cherry-on-top rounded out the scoring.

Although the Bisons gave up a record 37 shots on goal, Jesse Deckert had precious few difficult saves to make. On the other hand, Lucas Gore had loads of tough shots in the Kitten net.

Here's how they lined up:

Manitoba

Goal:
35 Deckert (1 Caligiuri)

Defence:
3 Mestery - 4 Schappert
22 Bestland - 2 Crowley
6 Melnychuk - 24 Bobbee

Forwards:

The Bedrock Boys chalked up a convincing win of their own. UBC has been nipping at their heels the last two years. But on Friday night the Extinct Ones prevailed with style. The Tweety-Birds were outshot 16-3 in the 1st period, yet the Dinos held only a 1-0 lead on a goal from Brock "Milhouse" Nixon.

In the 2nd the Dinos pulled away with Nixon's 2nd a PP marker from Corey Banfield. UBC tried to make a 3rd period comeback, outshooting their hosts 13-5. But all they got was one goal, from Max Grassi.

In a bit of a surprise, the Dinos went with Dustin Butler in goal, whilst the British Californians answered with Jordan White.

In a scheduling note, Calgary has had to play games 1 and 2 of the series at their Max Bell Arena, rather than their usual digs at the Father David Bauer Arena.

The Bisons were, by far, the better team on Saturday night. Their 8 one-sided victories over the Banjo-Cats really make the one loss (last Saturday) stand out. A win there and the Bisons would be hosting a semi-final series next weekend.

While the Banjo-Cats exceeded everybody's expectations this year, going a respectable 13-12-3, it is clear that they went as far as they could have hoped. To put it bluntly, there are very few Kittens who could have even cracked the Bison line-up had they attended training camp. So 2012-13 has to be considered a success at the U of R.

The Bisons established dominance from every line from the opening whistle. Shift after shift produced a quality scoring chance. However, most were wasted when the Bisons failed to even hit the net. The 1st period shots were 12-7 for the Bisons. They could have doubled that total by hitting the net. The one chance which connected was a deft cross-crease pass from Ian Duval which landed the puck on Tyler Dittmer's stick to be buried behind Andrew Hayes.

The 2nd period followed the 1st period blueprint, but this time the Bisons scored twice. Dittmer converted another Duval pass before the fans had even settled in with their popcorn. Then Tyler Feakes whipped one in from the right side of the slot, on a pass from Duval.

Dittmer then scored twice more in the 3rd period. The 4-0 goal was the easiest goal ever. Jeremy Schappert passed from the left wing boards and hit a wide-open Dittmer no more than a few inches from the gaping net.

Here's how they lined up:

Manitoba

Goal:
35 Deckert (1 Caligiuri)

Defence:
3 Mestery - 4 Schappert
22 Bestland - 2 Crowley
6 Melnychuk - 24 Bobbee

Forwards:
23 Dittmer - 19 Duval - 26 Macaulay
9 Lowry - 11 Henry - 21 Cowan
27 Feakes - 10 Rowinski - 29 Cain
18 Kelly - 25 Ciarelli - 16 Paradis

Scratches:
G: 34 Dubyk
D: 5 Christensen - 12 Sutherland - 20 Lockerby
F: 15 Scott - 17 Lauder

Regina

Goal:
30 Hayes (35 Gore)

Defence:
8 Friedel - 18 Nielsen
14 Cuthbert - 5 Reeve
24 Szucki - 2 Dech

Forwards:
21 Hladun - 20 Sawka - 17 Selinger
16 Nargang - 15 Murray - 19 King
13 Appleyard - 10 Henry - 22 Hunter
25 Czerwonka - 12 Brennan - 9 Penny

Scratches:
G: 1 Kilgore
D: 4 Sonntag - 7 Schneider
F: 11 Lange

So next weekend the Bisons will visit Saskatown to face the Banjo-Mutts at the Rutherford, provided it is still standing by then.

Three goals on 5 shots turned around game two for the Tweety-Birds and allowed them to tie the series and force game three on Sunday night.

Game two was to my surprise available on CanadaWest.tv, and game three on Sunday is also slated for broadcast. Puck drop is 6:00 MST, or 7:00 CST.

Jordan White has started both games in goal for UBC. After Dustin Butler was somewhat of a surprise starter in game one, the Bedrock Boys went back to Jacob Deserres in game two.

Feb. 17 News Update



There were a couple of new stories I found from Examiner.com, a Calgary site. For those in Calgary, tonight's game goes at 7:00 MST and the series shifts back to the Dinos' usual digs at the Father David Bauer Arena. For everybody else, the game is on-line at CanadaWest.tv.

Since the winner of this series will face Alberta, there has been no impediment to setting the semi-final schedule. And the CWUAA has done just that:



Friday, February 22, 2013 - 7:00 MST - CanadaWest.tv
Saturday, February 23, 2013 - 6:00 MST - CanadaWest.tv
Sunday, February 24, 2013 - 6:00 MST - CanadaWest.tv



Friday, February 22, 2013 - 7:00 CST
Saturday, February 23, 2013 - 7:00 CST
Sunday, February 24, 2013 - 7:00 CST

I suspect that the games from the Rutherdump Arena will be shown on CanadaWest.tv, since they have done so in each of the past few years. Of course, with the Rutherdump one always has to be concerned about the roof caving in. For the Bisons, the place is contoured perfectly for a big physical team. Hopefully, they can still fit cameras into the place.

Feb. 17: Game Threes from Coast-to-Coast

SEMI-FINALS ARE SET

With the Bisons having booked their ticket to the semi-final round, all we have on Game Three Sunday is a round-up from the four game threes played in four different provinces.

All of the games were on-line, and I was able to see at least a bit of each. It was actually a bit of a treat.

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:


UBC THUNDERBIRDS 1
CALGARY DINOSAURS 4

(Calgary wins series 2-1.)

Links:
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]
|> [U of C Game Story] : [UBC Game Story]


UBC came out to play what was a key game for their program. They are the CW's #5 program, up against the #4 program to whom they lost a quarter-final series last season. Instead of coming up with a big effort they absolutely crapped the bed.

UBC was outshot 13-1 in the 1st period but were still tied 0-0. Problem was they had a 5 minute major to kill to start the 2nd period. The Bedrock Boys scored and that was that. UBC managed only 8 (yes, single digit) shots in the whole game.

Due to a loading problem with the CanadaWest.tv feed I missed Calgary's first two goals. What I did see emphasized just how bad UBC was. An unfortunate end to the season for them.

OUT EAST:


MONCTON AIGLES BLEUS 3
ACADIA AXEMEN 4

(in overtime)
(Acadia wins series 2-1.)


Links:
|> [AUS Boxscore] : [CIS Boxscore]


After game one was a bit of a disaster for the Cajuns, they rallied for the win. They were outshooting the Aigles 34-11 after two periods, but only led 2-1 on the scoreboard. Moncton turned things around in a wild 3rd period where the shots were 17-17. The Cajuns finally won in OT, and the shots were 68-39.


NIPISSING LAKERS 2
MCGILL REDMEN 1

(Nipissing wins series 2-1.)

Links:
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]


McGill joined Moncton as 2012 University Cup qualifiers to get the shoe in the quarter-final round. The game had a good pace but many players on both sides looked like Junior "B" calibre grads. The Nippers carried the play for the better part of the evening, outshooting the McGilligutties 37-28. McGill did pour it on late, to no avail.


LAURIER GOLDEN HAWKS 2
GUELPH GRYPHONS 3

(in overtime)
(Guelph wins series 2-1.)


Links:
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]


I saw less of this one than the others. The game was quite slow-paced. Like the other games out east, the team with the edge in shots won in the end, In this case 41-24.

QUARTER FINAL RECAP:

Canada West
Byes: Alberta and Saskatchewan
Manitoba beat Regina 2-0
Calgary beat UBC 2-1

OUA - West

Updates and OUA Semi-Final Schedule

NEWS AND UPDATES


The U of R released their game story. It did not add much but there is this little ray of sunshine for the Banjo-Cats:
Quote:
The Cougars made huge strides during the 2012-13 campaign under first-year head coach Todd Johnson, collecting 29 points in conference play after finishing with 13 points just a year ago. The team qualified for the postseason this year for the first time since 2009, and expects to return everyone to next season's roster with the exception of fifth-year defenceman Russ Nielsen and graduating fourth-year forward Ryan Sawka.
I also found links to some media stories. The Free Press just had a small blurb on the hockey team.

It seems the Kitties got some false hope from their 4-2 win last weekend. And d-man John Sonntag had quite an injury to his forearm. He was injured in a game against the Monkeys on February 1st.

Now, the playoffs get serious. It would be nice if the Herd was hosting this series. But if they have to play away, no better place for them than the Rutherdump Arena. Back in the day, the tiny rink was a big edge for the Banjo-Mutts. But now that the Bisons have more than their share of big recruits, this venue helps them. Provided, of course, that no chunks of roof break and land on them.

The Bisons have held the edge over the Mutts this year. Each team won twice. However, the Bisons outshot them every game. The Bison D was able to stifle the Mutts' forwards, who usually barely broke the 20 shot barrier each game. The most shots they had was 27 in game 4, when the Bisons had 40. Check out the "head-to-head" link for a plethora of interesting facts. There is one error. They claim the teams have met 14 times in the last 5 years. I believe they must have played 26 times in the regular season (4 times the last 2 seasons, 6 times the years before that).

In the overall standings, Sask was one point ahead. In offence the Bisons ranked 2nd with 105 goals while the Mutts were 3rd with 100. In defence, the Bisons were 3rd with 71 goals against and the Mutts were 4th with 82.

In all 4 games these teams played, the goaltenders were Jesse Deckert for the Bisons and Ryan Holfield for Sask. Expect that to continue.

As usual, the big weapon for the Bisons is the 1st line, Dittmer-Duval-Macaulay. They were 3 of the top 6 scorers in the CW and had the Banjo-Cats reeling last weekend. However, the other lines were also adept at applying pressure. When the Banjo Boys visited Manitoba they had very little pressure applied by their 2nd-4th lines. They just scrambled to get the puck out of their end then do a line change.

One has to consider what impact playing host to the University Cup is having on Sask. Some would say it takes away a bit of an edge. Others would say it helps to relax and just play the game without thinking of the consequences.

Final note: The CanadaWest.tv broadcast is not yet confirmed but I suspect it shall be. Keep checking!

CALGARY DINOSAURS (17-11-0, 2-1, 22-15-0, OHT35 #14)

The Bedrock Boys have lost the last two CW finals. To make it 3 in a row they need a win over the Evil Monkeys. While they have a chance, I would say they are a longshot. The Dinos only beat the Monkeys once out of four games this year, and that was in a shootout.

Although it took the Dinos 3 games to eliminate UBC, they did dominate game 3. This makes me wonder if they are peaking at the right time, like last year. The Butler/Deserres rotation in goal has them 2nd in goals against. But the Monkeys are 1st, with the Mucha/Cyr rotation. Not to mention, the Monkeys are also 1st in goals scored.

IMO the Dinos chance is to lay the body on the little Monkeys and hope they run out of gas in game 3. They will also need stellar goaltending.

OUT EAST:

The weekend started early out east with three games Wednesday, and more coming on Thursday. Note that the AUS is playing best-of-five in the semi-finals while the OUA sticks to best-of-three.

NEWS:

There were four sets of stories in the news this week. First, the CIS issued another top ten poll which was unchanged. Not surprising, since 4 teams had byes.

The Regina Leader-Post gave good coverage to the Banjo-Cats down the stretch. The story claims they are only losing two Kittens next year, Russ Nielson and Ryan Sawka.

The Canadian University Press found a couple of questionable stories. In one, Concordia claims to have a new computer program which gives their team an edge. Maybe they meant to say "... when we play Xbox ...." Hockey IntelliGym is "an online program which uses cognitive simulation technology to improve players’ performance in team sports". We'll see.

The other doozy was a typical feminist junk story common in university publications. The author cites bland stats to form the basis for a whine. "[F]rom all 54 universities included under the CIS roster, out of 480 head coaches, 408 of them were male." Well, duh! Ever think that men like sports way more than women do and therefore there would be a much larger pool of male candidates? Ever think that there exists a link between the low numbers of volunteer female coaches at all levels and the low numbers of paid female coaches at higher levels?

It figured that this series would be level after two games. The teams now play Saturday and Sunday at the home of the Cajuns.


UPEI PANTHERS 2

Half-way through the game it was only 1-0 for the Squirrels. Then came the @** kicking. Game two goes Friday night in Fredericton. The teams will then take the weekend off (no need to rush a playoff series!) before shifting to the Island.


WATERLOO WARRIORS 1
WESTERN ONTARIO MUSTANGS 3

(UWO leads series 1-0.)

Links:

Napoleon met his Waterloo, but the Urban Cowboys have not. Waterloo scored the first goal 7 minutes into the 3rd period. There were only 3 penalties in the game. Game two goes Saturday in Waterloo.


GUELPH GRYPHONS 1
WINDSOR LANCERS 2

(Windsor leads series 1-0.)

This is one of the closest match-ups, on paper, in the semi-final round. Windsor only had 22 shots on goal. Game two goes Saturday in Guelph.

The Bisons picked a bad time to have their worst game of the decade, at least. I was unable to watch on-line because my son is in basketball playoffs this weekend. But I did see a tweet that Blair Macaulay was hurt. I would expect some fireworks at the Rutherdump in game 2 Saturday night, available on CanadaWest.tv.

The Mutts took a 4-0 1st period lead and outshot the Herd 16-5. In the end the Bisons rallied on the shot clock even though short-handed most of the game.

A big game one win does not give a team a game two edge. Just ask UNB and UPEI after you scroll down ....

The Evil Monkeys enjoyed a solid win over the Bedrock Boys. My thought was that one of the first two games would be tight and if Calgary wins, attrition could decide the series in game three. The Dinos could still cling to that theory.

Amazingly, the Squirrels only had 20 shots on goal on home ice. The teams have the weekend off before hooking up in Green Gables Monday and Tuesday nights. This one illustrates the "different day, different teams" theory.


CARLETON RAVENS 3

Cartoon U blew 2-0 and 3-1 leads en route to a loss and a 1-1 series tie. The deciding match goes Sunday at Carleton. Cross-town rivalries always have an element of unpredictability about them.

Feb. 23: Bisons 4 Huskies 1

BISONS SEND MANGY MUTTS TO THE DOG HOUSE


MANITOBA BISONS 4
SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 1

(Series tied 1-1.)

But for good chunks of the first period when the on-line video was either buffering, frozen, or the link was lost, I was able sit back, relax, and enjoy watching the Bisons bounce back ably and even the series.

Jesse Deckert made 2 or 3 excellent saves, mostly on 2nd period power plays. However he was not exactly peppered with shots. The alignment on D was as per the last several games (Mestery-Schappert, Bestland-Crowley, and Melnychuk-Bobbee).

Blair Macaulay was scratched due to injury and Austin Lauder drew into the line-up as a replacement. Matthew Lowry stepped up to the #1 line with Ian Duval and Tyler Dittmer. The unit accounted for two goals. The 4th line (Kelly-Ciarelli-Paradis) seemed to be intact. The Feakes-Henry-Cain line was reunited at times, but I also saw Henry out there with Rowinski and Cowan, and possibly once with Lauder.

The 1st period was hard to watch, for technical reasons. Since there were no goals there were no goals to miss.

Ian Duval notched the only goal of the 2nd period. The official shots were 15-10 for the Mutts, which I thought seemed a little high for both sides. In any event, the Mutts' only real pressure came on the PP (they went 1-for-9 on the night).

The 3rd period saw the Bisons take control of the game. Dane Crowley scored early to make it 2-0 and that margin, plus the penalty killing, seemed to give the team confidence. When Zac Stebner and his bad 70s mullet cut the lead to 2-1, it took less than a minute for the Bisons to restore the two goal lead. James Henry added an empty-netter for good measure.

The rubber match goes Sunday at 7:00 CST and is available on-line at CanadaWest.tv.

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:


CALGARY DINOSAURS 0
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 2

How do you win a series without goal? You don't. And that's why the Dinosaurs went extinct. The Evil Monkeys outshot them 12-4 in the 1st period and held a 1-0 lead. The Bedrock Boys battled back to outshoot the Monkeys 25-18 the rest of the night. Monkey netminder Kelly Mu-u-ucha could not be beat for the 2nd night in a row.

So the CW final will be in Edmontown next weekend, with Saudi Alberta hosting the winner of Manitoba-Saskatchewan.

Waterloo was outshot 47-24 but still beat the Urban Cowboys. Game 3 goes Sunday.

The scores could not have been closer (even the shots were even at 31-31), but in the end a sweep is a sweep. Windsor was on the edge between the A level and the B level all year, and now they have a ticket to the OUA West final. Guelph lost their starting goaltender late in the season, but after surrendering 3 goals in 2 games in the series, they surely cannot blame goaltending.

have to chime in here because I have not really been reading this blog as much since i went for the full season tickey package for my Jets this year. character win for them yesterday. I was disappointed to see Manitoba couldn't get it done in game three in Saskatoon.
What confuses me is how some couch potatoes out east can beak Holley. His contribution to the the CIS mens hockey information train is significant! I can't wait to read his updates from all leagues and his nightly(weekend) info which gives you links to find additional information. Speaking of links....you "missing links" should be begging for additional information from this guy! I realize you only get a weekly newspaper out east like they do in Saskatchewan so NEW news especially from Holly must seem exciting. Does the top 35 change once the season is over!? Does the top 10?? I was under the impression it did not?
See ya western!
Another third or fourth finish for Acadia, that to must be diappointing. AD Dickie must be tossing his highliters around?

Trust me im 120% teasing Hollywood, he does a great job and has great dedication that I wish more cis fans around the country had or would take part in. Im truly dissapointed for the Bisons, as I have huge respect for their program and I have a big frustration of not seeing them come out on top of the west

On Sunday night I was struggling with a flu bug and wound up dozing off so as to miss the ending. While the Bisons didn't play terribly they never really got it together in this series. Still, it was even at one win each and they were playing a sudden-death game for all the marbles. The Bisons were unable to mount any sustained pressure in the 1st period, but did force the play in the 2nd. However, in both periods they gave up one goal. The Banjo-Mutts scored twice early in the 3rd to salt it away. Jesse Deckert's save percentage on the weekend was not sterling. They could have used some keys tops to preserve their ability to mount a rally.

The Urban Cowboys enjoyed a season beating up on 98 pound weaklings. So a playoff loss was not completely unexpected. Still, one would think they would have beaten a B level side like Waterloo. They did outshoot them (again), by 38-26 this time.


OTTAWA GEEGEES 0
CARLETON RAVENS 6

(Carleton wins series 2-1.)

Links:
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]


And in the end the Geegees sucked. Cartoon U can now become the first Ontario team to win the OUA East since Ottawa in 2004, and the time before that was Guelph in 1997.

So no U-Cup appearance for Green Gables this year. The Squirrels enjoyed three one-sided whippings in the series. However, the shot clock was not as dominated as was the scoreboard. So, UNB is off to Saskatown for the U-Cup. First, they must play SMU for the AUS title.

This series is a golden opportunity to make the U-Cup for a couple of outsider programs. To add some spice to the U-Cup the event needs some new blood, and that is assured for at least one of the two OUA berths. Waterloo cannot be underestimated after having beaten two A level teams - the Thundermutts and Urban Cowboys - so far. This series will continue Saturday in Waterloo and Sunday in Windsor.

Ya, that's exactly what Western did this season - you're obviously right on top of the goings on in the OUA West this year. But let's extend your logic - Sask gets drilled by Alberta last night, but Sask takes out Manitoba, so I guess we can throw the Bisons into your 98 pound weakling bucket.

In all fairness, Western really only played one top level team all year (going 1-1 against Lakehead). According to Holly's breakdown Western's 2 games against A level competition was the fewest in the country. Perhaps they weren't tested or pushed enough this year.

I take your point that Western needs to play more top teams and maybe they can sort that out with the exhibition games next year (I'd also argue that Lakehead was not an A level team - they were too inconsistent). However, Western were pushed more this year than any year I can remember in recent memory - the division was strong top to bottom, with UOIT arguably the weakest but certainly not doormats. Brock, who finished last, lost a ton of close games, something Hollywood himself pointed out in an earlier post. The days of the 12-2 scores are gone.

Western lost to Waterloo because Waterloo had better goaltending - it's that simple. Waterloo's best game in that series was actualy the one they lost - in the two Mustang losses, Western outplayed the Warriors in both games, but Hartigan was outstanding and Unice/Cullen were not as good as they needed to be. Waterloo obviously has a great chance to win the division now but my hunch is they will have a tough time competing at the Nationals.
