Since Alberta lost their first game by 2 goals, this game had a surreal feel about it. Alberta had to win by 4 or more goals to advance. If they won 3-0 then they would have had a shoot-out with St. FX. Any other win would send St. FX through. And, of course, McGill's win sent them through. Please, CIS. add two more teams to the field and make this a straight knockout!

Mo-oo-oo-cha also lost his touch. He was incredible against Calgary and Manitoba in the CW playoffs but was a bit of a sieve in this one.

Anyhow, after being around for 135 years, McGill was due to make a first appearance in the final.

UNB made this one look easy. For some reason, the teams were lippy in the pre-game. Whatever. At least this one was easy: winner advances, loser out. To me it was just a matter of time before the Urban Cowboys fell apart. Their only pressure came on the PP. And what was with all those calls? I suspect that there was the odd dive thrown in there as well, mostly from UWO.

McGill did well to make it this far. However, my view of the match-up was that in 100 games they would still have a hard time beating UNB. They were smaller and on any rush got one shot and that was it. No sustained pressure, no ability to force the play, no real threat to score. So UNB hosts this again next year. (I hate that.)
