CIS TOP TEN TUESDAY (#11)

CIS TOP TEN TUESDAY (#11)

 

OTTAWA (CIS) – The Montreal Carabins are the new team to beat in CIS women’s hockey following a shocking shutout loss by the reigning national champion McGill Martlets, last Friday.

 

In other CIS sports, the Toronto Varsity Blues retake the lead in men’s swimming, while Windsor (women’s basketball),Carleton (men’s basketball), UBC (women’s swimming) and Alberta (men’s hockey, women’s volleyball & men’s volleyball) all hold on to their pole position.

 

In women’s hockey, the Martlets (4-1), who had topped the first five coaches’ polls of the young campaign, were blanked 1-0 by Concordia last Friday despite outshooting the Stingers 27-15. It put an end to McGill’s remarkable 57-game winning streak against its crosstown rival dating back to 2006.

 

The Martlets rebounded on Sunday with a 7-0 domination of Carleton, but the damage was done to their No. 1 status.

 

Meanwhile, the Carabins (4-1) joined McGill atop the RSEQ rankings thanks to a 7-2 win over Ottawa in their lone outing of the past week, on Saturday. Montreal was ranked No. 1 in three of 16 national polls last season, with McGill earning the nod every other week.

 

Montreal and McGill met in a memorable CIS championship final last March in Fredericton, where the Martlets prevailed in double overtime. The archrivals have battled once so far this season, on Oct. 24, with McGill winning 3-0. The Carabins will get a chance to avenge that loss on Nov. 21, this time on home ice.
