This weekend wraps up the first half of the season in the CW, after which every team will have played one series against each other team. (Except that MRU and Alberta played their second series early in a bye week.)

The Banjo-Cats are coming into the Max Bell Arena for the second time this season, the first coming in pre-season. At that time they looked every bit as bad as they were last season. The Bisons whipped them three times in pre-season, as did Sask. and the two Alaskan teams.

But somehow this rag-tag collection has pulled it together. Maybe not showing enough to be a contender but at least enough to get back to the mid-pack level at which they have typically been over the years.

Both sides are 6-4-2 in conference play, which makes this series a big one. Regina's record may be overstated, but not by much. The Bisons have the potential for a much better record. After a bad opening weekend in Edmontown, they have either picked up points or lost a game where they outshot their opponent. The Bisons have the 2nd best defensive record in the league. Their offence is generating shots but not yet getting the goals. A slightly higher conversion ratio on their scoring chances would vault them into 2nd place. That, however, could be easier said than done.

The Tweety-Birds have been solidly moving up the standings and now face the Evil Monkeys. This weekend could tell us whether they will be mounting a threat to at last move into the hgh rent district. However, I tend to think that any points they get will be a bonus. The Monkeys lead the league in both offence and defence.

Calgary seem to be spinning their wheels. The New Kittens on the Block will be up for a series against their cross-town rivals. These match-ups are always fraught with danger. This series, along with the match-ups between these schools in other sports, are part of the Crowchild Classic. So expect some fireworks. I know that the Duckworth Challenge between Manitoba and Winnipeg always draws extra attention.

So, have the H0rny Ones finally found themselves? After a bye week, they found some intensity against Manitoba, and then a win against Mount Royal. I know the rest of the conference would love to see them steal a point or two this weekend. After Sask lost 8-0 to Calgary, they must be considered a possibility to lose on any given night.

BISONS SEND KITTENS TO INGLORIOUS DEFEAT - REMATCH GOES SATURDAY AT 2:30 PM

The Banjo-Cats looked like they were overwhelmed by their trip to civilization. The Bisons scored early and often leaving the Kittens looking as sad and disheartened as a feline can be.

Frankly, based on tonight's performance I am wondering how Regina managed 6 wins and 2 OTLs against the rest of the league. They looked like the same sad-sacks the Bisons trampled twice in pre-season, and last year as well. They also surrendered quite meekly without the chippiness (or intensity) of the H0rny Ones two weeks ago.

Six different Bisons scored on the evening. James Henry (2nd) and Luke Cain (4th) gave the Herd a 2-0 lead before the crowd was even settled. The 1st period was then mostly one-way traffic with the Bisons doubling the Cougars 18-9 on the shot clock. A last-minute goal by Tyler Dittmer (5th) made it 3-0.

The only goal of the 2nd period came early from Brandon Lockerby (1st) on a point shot which at first they thought was deflected by Henry for his second of the night. The Bisons outshot the Hillbillies 14-5. By the end of the period each side only had one minor penalty each.

There was absolutely no threat pf a 3rd period comeback. Dylan Kelly (2nd) scored after 3 minutes and then Matthew Lowry (4th) scored shorthanded after 6. Jesse Deckert stopped 22 shots, including a breakaway from Carter Selinger in the final 2 minutes.

Here's how they lined up:

Manitoba

Goal:
35 Deckert (1 Caligiuri)

Defence:
4 Schappert - 20 Lockerby
5 Christensen - 2 Crowley
3 Mestery - 24 Bobbee

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

Scratches:
G: 34 Dubyk
D: 12 Sutherland - 22 Bestland
F: 14 Green - 15 Scott - 17 Lauder - 28 Chartier

Regina

Goal:
35 Gore (30 Hayes)

Defence:
8 Friedel - 5 Reeves
4 Sonntag - 18 Nielson
7 Schneider - 2 Deck

Forwards:
29 Strueby - 10 Henry - 17 Selinger
13 Appleyard - 14 Cuthbert - 9 Penny
16 Nargang - 15 Murray - 19 King
24 Szucki - 12 Brennan - 20 Sawka

The Bisons' 3rd line was the most productive, with 3 goals. Henry (with a goal and two assists) was the 1st star, followed by Deckert and Lockerby.

Please note that Saturday's game starts at 2:30 p.m.

The H0rny Ones came close to pulling an upset. They walked into Saskatown and staked themselves to a 2-1 lead after the 1st period. But they could not hang on. They were outshot 30-11 over the final two periods and only a last minute goal by themselves made it close.

These cross-town rivals played a home-and-home series in the Town of Bedrock as part of the Crowchild Classic multi-sport competition. This one went Thursday-Friday, with the New Kittens on the Block taking game 1 before the Dinos rallied to salvage a split.

Thursday's game was a defensive one. MRU built up a 3-2 after two periods, while edging Calgary 15-14 in shots. MRU then played cling on in the 3rd, being outshot 13-4 in a scoreless period.

The Dinos had the edge throughout Friday's rematch. Only a goal with 5+ minutes left broke the shutout for MRU.

Calgary once again split the games between goaltenders Jacob Deserres (Thursday) and Dustin Butler (Friday). Neither one seems to be hitting full stride.

The Banjo-Cats opened and closed the scoring, which would normally be a good sign. Problem is that in between there were 7 unanswered goals by the Bisons.

Darren Bestland made his return to the Bison line-up and got a penalty right off the bat. Carter Selinger then scored the first goal of the weekend and the Hillbillies had broken the goose egg. James Henry (3rd) and Brendan Rowinski (2nd), both scoring with set-ups from defencemen, gave the Herd the lead heading into the intermission.

The 2nd period was where the Bisons turned out the lights for their Hillbilly neighbours. They outshot them 20-8 and outscored them 4-0. Blair Macaulay (6th) scored a sniper's goal on a PP, Henry (4th) converted a 3-way passing play, Travis Bobbee (2nd) scored on a PP point shot, and Jeremy Schappert (4th) picked a rebound out of mid-air on another PP.

The 3rd period was just an exercise in letting the clock tick down. Tyler Dittmer (6th) converted a nice passing play and it was 7-1. The period was grinding to a halt with the Kittens rarely doing anything when suddenly Mark Schneider scored in the last minute.

Here's how they lined up:

Manitoba

Goal:
35 Deckert (1 Caligiuri)

Defence:
4 Schappert - 20 Lockerby
22 Bestland - 2 Crowley
3 Mestery - 24 Bobbee

The two teams have now played one series against each team in the league. The Bisons are 8-4-2 and are in 3rd place, while Regina must be happy with a 6-6-2 record and a tie for 5th place.

After the H0rny Ones threw a scare into the Banjo-Mutts on Friday night, the Banjo-Mutts put the boots to their guests on Saturday. I see that Lethbridge had to play two men down. Despite the one-sided win, Ryan Holfield again went the distance in the Husky goal, as he has done every game this year. The Huskies amassed 50 shots on goal to 25 by Lethbridge.

Here's an interesting stat: With the two games this weekend the Huskies have now only outshot their opponents in 6 of 14 games. They are also 8-1-0 in one-goal games.

This one was on CanadaWest.tv. However, it was a very one-sided game. However, the boys from British California were hanging in after two periods, trailing only 2-1. In the 3rd period the Evil Monkeys outshot the Tweety-Birds 15-4 and scored four unanswered goals. Saudi Alberta has now outshot their opponents in every game so far.

What a whuppin'. But before we get too big on the Dinos, remember that they opened with an 8-0 win over Sask not so long ago, yet walked away from the weekend with 2 points when Sask took game 2.

It looks like the H0rny Ones did a double yank on their goaltenders. Ketlo started and gave up 5 goals, and was. pulled with 6:52 left. Tait then proceeded to surrender 4 goals on 9 shots to finish the period and they went back to Ketlo for the 3rd.

This was a hard-fought game throughout and, in the end, was decided by one of those dreadful shootouts. It was also a game where nobody scored an even-strength goal.

My impression of the Evil Monkeys is that they are a very vulnerable team. Basically, they lack character. They are a team of divers. Rather than hit, they poke their sticks at their opponents' skates. I can see where they have used superior depth to rack up wins. That might work well during the regular season. In the playoffs? Ask the Sedins.

The good news for the Bisons was that both goals came from the snake-bit 2nd line, with Matt Lowry notching his 4th and 5th goals of the season. The other lines generated their fair share of scoring chances as well. In all, each line gave as good as they got.

IMO the star of the game was Kurtis Mu-u-ucha in the Monkey goal. On separate power plays he stopped Ian Duval and Del Cowan on breakaways they had from across centre. Either one of those short-handed goals could have turned the game around.

Here's how they lined up:

Manitoba

Goal:
35 Deckert (1 Caligiuri)

Defence:
4 Schappert - 20 Lockerby
22 Bestland - 2 Crowley
3 Mestery - 24 Bobbee

The Banjo-Mutts scored 3 goals in less than 7 minutes after the drop of the puck and that ended hopes for the New Kittens on the Block. Kyle Bortis scored his 5th and 6th goals for Sask, allowing him first choice of tunes at the post-game accordion party.

This was a must-win for the Tweety-Birds if they wish to escape their life-long status as a bottom-half team in the CW. Steven Stanford, #2 goalie, posted the shut-out. The Banjo-Cats outshot the hosts 21-15 over the first two periods yet trailed 2-0. Rather then pour it on in the 3rd, the Cats had only 2 shots the entire period and surrendered meekly.

OTHER STORIES:

By Sheryl Ubelacker, The Canadian Press: Concussions in male, female varsity hockey players more common than reported - READ THE STORY, it was based on CIS players:
But getting coaches and team trainers to recognize when a player may have suffered a concussion and needs to be pulled from the ice for assessment — and possibly from further play for a time — continues to be a huge challenge, said Echlin, who works with injured athletes at the Elliott Sports Medicine Clinic in Burlington, Ont.

"Once you start removing players and testing them, then it becomes oppositional," he said, noting there was "huge pushback" during the study, in which physicians observed 55 regular- and post-season games played by the varsity squads.

As one physician-observer reported: "I had negative feedback from the coach who thought that the study was a waste of money ... he didn't want his players to get assessed in fear that they would be declared as concussed and advised not to play ... the players didn't want to be declared as concussed since it would limit their playing time."

In another incident, a player diagnosed with a minor concussion in the second period was sent back on the ice for the third. At the end of the game, the player said she was still feeling “iffy” and “off” and slightly dizzy.

The study doctor advised that she be excluded from upcoming games to give her brain time to heal, Echlin writes in an editorial overview of three linked studies published in the journal Neurosurgical Focus.

While the coach acknowledged the symptoms were concerning and the player “had the rest of her life ahead of her,” she challenged the doctor's authority to make the call — even though her own career playing hockey had been ended due to multiple concussions.

Dec. 1: Bisons 4 Monkeys 2

BISONS SQUASH PRIMATES

This year's Monkeys are a frustrating team to watch. Those bogus pokes at skates and the dives really wore thin. Maybe some game film should be circulated to refs so they can be forewarned.

The Bisons never had the clear-cut breakaways like they did Friday night when killing penalties, but they still had numerous quality chances. On both nights, rather than racking up high shot totals they instead had lots of 2-on-1 and very high quality scoring chances. If there is a concern heading into the break it is the sheer volume of good shots missing the net.

The Bisons opened scoring in the 1st period when Ian Duval cashed in a nice pass (his 4th) from Blair Macaulay while killing a penalty.

I thought the Bisons were going to score another in the 2nd period, which may well have put the Monkeys out of reach. However, a chintzy call led to a late power play and Shawn Ringrose equalized on a scramble.

I had much confidence heading into the 3rd because the Bisons had been laying the body on the Monkeys and they never had much to say about it. And over the weekend the Apes' PP got less proficient. And they had yet to score an even-strength goal.

After only a minute of play, Ian Duval restored the lead (his 5th). The play continued as normal, with Monkeys poking at skates and playing a dump-and-run style, and suddenly a bogus call arises against Macaulay for interference on an offensive zone faceoff. (The call also followed an incident where a Monkey gave James Henry an elbow to the back of the head no more than 6 feet away from one ref.) Ben Lindemulder tied the game on a point shot that Deckert should have had. So it was 2-2 with half a period left.

When Macaulay got back on the ice he gave the referee some heck and then after the face-off burst in and scored (his 7th). 21 seconds after the Monkeys tied the game, the Bisons were back on top. Travis Bobbee scored (his 3rd) on a point shot

Here's how they lined up:

Manitoba

So Sask beat the New Kittens on the Block 6-2, 6-3 on the weekend. That sounds like a result at Wimbledon. MRU played 2 men shy of a full roster. Mount Royal's goals were scored by Eric Galbraith, his 10th, 11th, and 12th of the year. That vaults him into the CW lead in that category. When play resumes, Sask will be the next Bison opponent (Jan. 4-5) and MRU will be the next Bison home opponent (Jan. 11-12).

This result is a turning-of-the-tables from Friday night. Same score, different winner. First period goals by Brayden Nargang and Tyler Penny gave the Banjo-Cats a 2-0 lead. There was no scoring in the 2nd period. UBC dominated the 3rd period, outshooting Regina 15-4 but unable to capitalize. Regina now has an 8 point lead in the race for 6th.

Well, at least this result was an improvement over Thursday for the H0rny Ones. The 1st period was wild (shots 17-14 for Calgary) yet no goals were scored. Calgary then dominated the 2nd and 3rd periods, with a 39-18 edge in shots. Brock Nixon notched a hat-trick for the Bedrock Boys. The Lethbridge roster was also down 2 men.

NEWS AND NOTES FROM AROUND THE CIS

Image
You might recall that the Dal-Hosers had to can Pete Beliveau for undisclosed reasons. All we know is that CIS was launching an investigation. Well, it looks like we will be waiting until January to find out just what the heck this is all about. Here's all we know by way of updates:
A decision by Canadian Interuniversity Sport following its investigation of the Dalhousie Tigers men’s hockey team will likely come in the new year.

Tom Huisman, the CIS director of operations and development, said via email that “in all likelihood, we are looking at post-Christmas in January.”

Dalhousie spokesman Charles Crosby confirmed in October that the school was preparing a written disclosure for the CIS. That came on the heels of the university dismissing former men’s hockey coach Pete Belliveau.

Belliveau was serving as team manager at the time of his dismissal.

Crosby said in an interview last month that the university is “looking forward to hearing back from (the CIS)” but wasn’t given any timeline.

“We’re anxious to hear their thoughts,” Crosby said. “When we do, we’ll be proactive and we’ll certainly be sharing that information.”

The Selkirk College Saints have turned things around. The perennial doormats have won all 12 games in the first half of the season to take a commanding lead. They had only 13 wins in the last 5 years (last year's 5 was a previous high). The SFU Clan are the only other side above .500. The Clan are promoting the Great Northwest Classic. I guess it is "classic" if the visiting teams from Oklahoma State and Arizona State were coming here to play football or basketball. But instead they are bringing their ACHA hockey squads in to play SFU and UBC. This is poor competition for UBC, but they will be the only CW team to face an opponent this holiday season.

The ACAC has really subdivided into a first tier (with NAIT, Augustana, and SAIT), a second tier (with Portage, Keyano, Concordia, and MacEwan), and the Briercrest way behind the rest. The 0-16 Clippers have been outscored 116-21. Portage beat Williston State College (NJCAA) 6-3 and 5-3 over the weekend. Augustana will face both Williston and Rosetown (Senior AAA) on Dec 29-30. NAIT will face the Evil Monkeys on Jan 4-5.

The Evil Monkeys will either hop into a bus or swing by vines south to the Town of Bedrock to face the TC Junior Squad. This game was added to the previously announced match-up against the Southern Alberta Trilogy of Universities.
The Canada West roster includes 19 players including 10 Dinos, five Mount Royal Cougars, and two Lethbridge Pronghorns. In addition, longtime pro Mark Bomersback of Rochester, Alta. – who most recently played with Lukko in the top pro league in Finland – along with former Los Angeles Kings draft pick T.J. Fast will join the Canada West squad.
The games are available on-line through Fast Hockey. It is free but one must register. Just check the links for instructions.

The AUS announced that UPEI Panther Mason Wilgosh has been suspended for 12 regular season games for an illegal check to the head of an opponent in a game against Acadia on November 30, 2012. That must have been some play for a suspension of such length.

The Evil Monkeys got the jump on the Diaper Brigade and then rode a 3-0 lead to a comfy victory. I was able to see most of the 1st period on-line, and then the end of the 3rd period as well. The afternoon games are a pain, but apparently the TC management are trying to acclimatize the team on a gradual basis. By Dec. 26th they have to be ready to play at the equivalent of 3:30 am CST.

There are lots of links up as I post, and there are bound to be more by daybreak. The one painful thing is how the sports media seem unable to describe teams from the CIS. I appreciate that it is hard to name some past combined squads, but this was the U of A. How hard should that be to describe?

Torrie Dyck scored twice for the Primates, with singles coming from Johnny Lazo and Kruise "Pokey" Reddick.

Team Canada will face a Dino-laden melange on Thursday afternoon, also available on-line at Fast Hockey.

The name "CIS All-Stars" seems inappropriate for a somewhat rag-tag collection, so I combined U of C, U of L, and MRU, got rid of the "ofs" and there you have it, UCULMRU.

The game was played at the Markin MacPhail Centre in the Town of Bedrock. The facility is part of the Canada Olympic Park and is Olympic-sized. It seems like a great facility but is not home to the Dinos, the New Kittens on the Block, and lacks sufficient seating for the Hitmen.

I never got a chance to watch much of this one. What I did see was fairly uneventful. Team Canada did all their scoring in the 1st period, where they outshot UCULMRU 14-5. There were precious few scoring chances in the last two periods, where the shots were 18-17 for TC.

The UCULMRU line-up appeared to be short-staffed. I counted only 17 skaters from the listing at Fast Hockey. Once the game ended, so too did any links with the team roster.

December 28, 2012

The Bisons have no holiday games this year, and in fact UBC are the only team in Canada West to hit the ice. They aren't even having the usual SAIT tournament out in Calgary.

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD

Image Image
MCGILL REDMEN 2
LAKEHEAD THUNDERWOLVES 3


Links:
|> [LS Summary]
|> [L.U. Game Story] : [Thunderwolves Release Frazee]


This was a fairly close game throughout. The Thundermutts took 1-0 and 2-1 leads, only to see the McGilligutties tie it up both times.

After McGill's mediocre first half they will want to regroup and make a second half charge. While this sounds like it was a decent match, McGill was still outshot and only could eke out 5 shots in the 3rd period.

Lakehead has to be heartened by their first half. But what turmoil! First, the players mutiny to get their coach fired. And then the team dumps Thomas Frazee after the first half. He came to them last Christmas after having played pro in the ECHL.

ARIZONA STATE SUN DEVILS 2
UBC THUNDERBIRDS 8


Links:
|> [BCIHL Results - links to summaries] : [UBC Twitter]
|> [UBC Mid-Season Report] : [ASU Site]


I got the score of UBC's Twitter, which had no links to summaries etc. Check the SFU and Event links and summaries and stories may yet be posted for both games.

The Sun Devils are in the ACHA Division 1, where they are the top ranked team in the nation (20-2-0). Before you get too impressed, the ACHA is for non-varsity club teams. Iowa State came to play the Bisons a few years back and they looked completely out-classed. I actually feared for the safety of some of their players.

ASU did split a pair of games against Penn State, a new NCAA team. After this weekend they have 12 straight home games. Their next road games are February 14th to 16th when they travel to North Dakota to face Williston State and Minot State.

I linked to UBC's mid-term report. They say their 1st half pace has them on pace to their best record in 22 years. And they're 4th.

When I first heard about this I believe they said it was Oklahoma State coming to this event, but in fact it is Good Ol' JR's favourite team. They are ranked #6 in the ACHA Division 1. They were to have played NCAA Div 1 Rutgers earlier, but Hurricane Sandy scuttled that game. They have two games each against two other Div 1 teams, Alabama-Huntsville and Penn State.

All I have in this is the SFU Twitter score. They also said the shots were 50-39.

If you are looking for a sign that this may not be McGill's year, just look at the box score for Saturday night's game in T-Bay. After taking a 4-2 lead in the 3rd period, they surrendered not one but TWO shorthanded goals (the second on a penalty shot!) before giving up a power play goal to lose. Ay carumba.

All I could find on this was the score from UBC's Twitter and in a margin note on their website. Here's the whole report:
[UBC] beats Oklahoma 4-3 in overtime at the Great Northwest Showcase. UBC outshot the Sooners 51-23. Joe Antilla scored the OT winner.
Not sure what UBC picked up from these games, but there you have it.

TORONTO VARSITY BLUES 2
ACADIA AXEMEN 4


Links:

That Acadia would win this game is not a surprise. That Toronto actually outshot Acadia, is one. The two sides also amassed 70 minutes in penalties in the 3rd period. At least one can acknowledge that these teams have regular season intensity ready to go.

This Red Stars team is hard to gauge. The MHL is a junior league with teams in Russia and other east European countries. They have taken past tours to the States and their results are all over the map. On this tour their prior results are:
11-2 win over Atlantic Junior League All-Stars
6-2 win over Army Black Knights
10-2 loss to Yale Bulldogs

Sunday's game was in St. John and Monday's rematch will be in Fredericton. Of note, there was a huge blizzard out east. It was fortunate that the teams made it to the game. Phil Esposito was there as a special guest as the 1972 series was commemorated.

So the break is over and time to get back to the grind. The CW has by coincidence three close match-ups, and the primary one is between the Bisons and Banjo-Mutts. The #2 and #3 teams in the CW and #3 and #9 teams in the CIS.

Of note, the Bison roster page, on both their site and LeagueStat, has verified the addition of defenceman Brody Melnychuk. He is a grad of the Brandon Wheat Kings. They now have 16 forwards, 9 defencemen, and 3 goaltenders on the roster. Hopefully there will be a preview story at GoBisons.ca on Thursday or Friday which deals with this acquisition.

The end of the season comes quickly and suddenly. Christmas just ended and now we are in the final drive to the playoffs. After this weekend, both sides will have only 10 games remaining. So this trip to that 70's town is of major importance to the Bisons. The Herd trail the Bumpkins by 5 points. IMO the Bisons need to win the weekend series by a minimum margin of 4-1 if they want to make a charge for 2nd place.

When these teams met in Friendly Manitoba the Bisons were able to shut down the Hillbillies. But nobody else has. The Moonshiners are 2nd to Alberta in goals scored. Both games can be seen on-line at CanadaWest.tv.

LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS (1-13-2, 3-18-2, OHT35 #35)

Both of these teams have released preview stories right on time. From Regina:
Second-year forward Tyler Henry continues to lead the Cougars in both goals (8) and points (13), while Matt Strueby is tied for the team lead with seven assists and ranks second on the squad with 12 points. Troy Hunter has 11 points in 11 games this season, but missed the final five games of the first half of the schedule due to an injury suffered against Alberta back on Nov. 16.

John Sonntag leads Regina's blueline corps with five points on the season, while Mark Schneider and rookie defenceman Ryan Dech have both chipped in with four points apiece. Andrew Hayes and Lucas Gore have split the netminding duties equally, as both goalies have started eight games so far. Hayes is 4-4 with two shutouts and a .909 save percentage, while Gore's top outing of the season came after stopping 28 shots in a 2-1 win over Mount Royal. ...

The Cougars come into the weekend series with an all-time record of 60-43-7 against Lethbridge and have won four of the last five meetings with the Pronghorns. ...
And from Lethbridge:
It has been a struggle at both ends of the rink for the ‘Horns through the first 16 games. The ‘Horns rank last in both goals for and goals against, scoring only 32 times, while allowing 82 goals against. While it has been a trying first half of the season, it has not been all doom and gloom, 36 of the 82 goals allowed have come in four games and of their 13 losses, the ‘Horns have lost six time by two goals or less, with two of those losses coming in overtime.

Freshman forward Chase Schaber has also been a bright spot offensively for the ‘Horns, Schaber is tied for the conference scoring lead among freshmen with six goals and nine assists.

For the Cougars (7-7-2 CW), transition under first-year head coach Todd Johnson has relatively smooth and while they are sitting at 500, they have already surpassed their win total from last season. The Cougars finished the 2011-12 season in last place with a 5-20-3 record.

CALGARY DINOS (9-7-0, 12-10-0, OHT35 #17)

Only one point separates these two teams in the race for 4th place. Last year the Bedrock Boys chased down the Tweety-Birds and then eliminated them from the playoffs. These two look to be on a collison course for a rematch.

The Dinos have had some major offensive explosions this year, 8-0 over Sask and 10-1 over Lethbridge. Could they repeat this against UBC? I suspect not. In fact, I suspect a split, just like they had when they met in Bedrock.

ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS (14-4-0, 23-4-0, OHT35 #1)

The Evil Monkeys played their series against the New Kittens on the Block during the first half bye week, thus freeing up this coming weekend. Therefore, a space was created for them to play their cross-town rivals in a home-and-home series. NAIT is unbeaten in ACAC conference play. In their only game against a CW team they lost 3-0 to the H0rny Ones.
