This is usually one of the better match-ups of the season. I will only be able to attend the Friday game (darn!) and am hoping the Bisons can halt their 4 game skid. The Bisons were 5-3 before the bye week and 0-4 after. The two losses in Lethbridge stand out like a sore thumb. Other than that weekend, the team has done a really good job blending in the influx of new players. Deven Dubyk (the new #1 goaltender) has a .928 save % and Sahq Merasty and Jordan DePape continues to score. Now they need to get the rest of their top two lines going again.

Bedrock U have been swept by MRU and otherwise are off to a good start, holding down 2nd place. They are likely to split the series between the Lazaruk/Deserres goaltending combo. Although Calgary swept the Herd 4-1 and 6-1 to start the season, over the last 5 years about half of their games have gone to OT, including the deciding game of last year's conference semi-final series.

This is a home-and-home Battle of the Bumpkins. Cats vs Dogs. The fans will no doubt drive their tractors to both venues to see Regina's possible last-ditch effort to mount a playoff rally. Sask is 5-7, Regina is 2-10. It is sweep or bust for the Kittens.

The H0rny Ones have shown they are tough on home ice. Now they need to show they can also win on the road. This is a home-and-home. MRU swept Lethbridge to kick off the season. They will need to do likewise if they want to stay in the 3rd-4th tier, needed to host the quarter-final playoff round. Meanwhile, Lethbridge has won 3 of their last 4.

UBC beat Saudi Alberta in the pre-season and then split their season-opening series. That was a good time to play the Evil Monkeys. They were looking very vulnerable back then. They have since found their form and are perched atop the standings and the OHT36 rankings. This will be a good measuring stick for the Tweety-Birds, as they currently sit in the midst of the CW standings.

The Bisons halted a four game losing skid with a convincing win over Bedrock U Friday night at the Wayne Fleming Arena. In a years-long rivalry typified by overtime games, the mold has been broken. All three games between these teams thus far have been one-sided romps for the home team.

The Bisons appear to have some injury woes. Defenceman Kyle Rous was drssed as a forward. Here's how they lined up:

MANITOBA

Goal:
34 Dubyk (1 Spriggs)

Defence:
3 Elmes - 4 Gow
12 Sutherland - 22 Bestland
2 Bresciani - 5 Christensen

Forwards:
16 Paradis - 21 Dickin - 27 DePape
8 Coates* - 25 Merasty - 20 Lewadniuk
28 Rous - 23 Schreyer - 17 Callis
18 Kelly - 24 Augert* - 29 Bruyere

When the 4th line was being skipped, Augert would play centre with Merasty and Lewadniuk and Coates would sit out with Kelly and Bruyere.

Scratches:
6 Paulsen - 9 Hunter - 10 Dudar
11 Mospanchuk - 15 Robinson - 19 Rowinski

CALGARY

Goal:
1 Lazaruk (37 DeSerres)

Defence:
6 Dow - 44 Busenius
2 Gibb - 7 Ross
11 Dzielski - 4 Curran

Forwards:
10 Harrison - 13 Collins - 9 Kambletz
42 Walchuk - 27 Edwards - 8 Pearce
17 Franson - 21 Myers - 20 Gale
19 Tot - 12 Grant - 26 King

The 1st period was scoreless. The Bisons held an 11-9 edge on the shot clock and had a distinct territorial advantage for the bulk of the period.

The Bisons took control in the 2nd period. Reid Gow opened scoring with his 2nd of the season. IMO the turning point occurred when each team had a two-man advantage. The Bisons held the Dinos to very few scoring chances on their's. However, when the tables were turned the Bisons scored twice in a strech where Bedrock U took 3 overlapping penalties. Bison PP scorers were Aaron Lewadniuk and Justin Augert, with his 1st as a Bison. The Bisons ended the period with a 3-0 lead and a 12-4 edge on the scoreboard.

There was very little activity in the 3rd period. The Bisons appeared happy to see the clock tick down. Jesse Paradis made it 4-0. Ryan Harrison thwarted Deven Dubyk's quest for a shut-out with a shorthanded goal less than 9 minutes from the end.

The victory improves the Bisons to 6-7-0 and in 5th place, 2 points out of 4th, 4 points out of 3rd, and 6 points behind 2nd place Bedrock.

Saturday's rematch starts at 6:00 pm at the Wayne Fleming Arena at the U of M.

This much-hyped series was just what the Banjo-Cats needed against their gap-toothed cousins. To me, it seems that underdogs have a great record in university games that are billed as "rivalry" games with larger than usual crowds. (Like when then-lowly MRU beat Bedrock at the Saddledome.) Three different Kittens scored and Lucas Gore got the W in goal. Ryan Holfeld was tagged with the loss in his usual Friday night start in the Mutts' goal.

The teams will hop on their tractors and ox-carts for the trip to Saskatown for the Saturday night rematch. Regina (and Lethbridge for that matter) could pull within 2 points of the Huskies with a win.

Although the Tweety-Birds had this one tied 1-1 almost mid-way through the 2nd period, the Evil Monkeys had this one under control. In fact, with a 3-1 lead after two periods, they outshot UBC 12-4 in the final frame, clearly not allowing UBC any hope for a rally. Frankly, the Bisons' results look pretty good in hindsight when one sees how the Apes have been dominating lately. This one saw Mucha v Hewitt in goal. James Dobrowolski scored twice for the Monkeys. The Saturday rematch is available online.

As usual, the H0rny Ones were a tough team to play on home ice. In goal, neither Tait nor Ketlo suited up for the 'Horns. Warren Shymko with backup Alex Sirard were dressed as goaltenders. Cody Cartier scored twice for MRU and Dalyn Flette was the winning goaltender. Saturday's rematch will be in Calgary and is to be available online.

On a day when Manitoba beat Bedrock U for the Hardy Cup football championship, the Dinos needed some consolation. They got it in the form of a weekend split.

I had to miss the game because my son had a game. This was, as expected, a tight battle all along. After two periods the shots were 19-a-piece but the Dinos held a 2-0 edge on the scoreboard. The Bisons took themselves out of the running for a comeback by taking 6 minors and a misconduct in the 3rd period, whilst Bedrock U took just one minor. Deven Dubyk was once again in the Bison goal and Bedrock continued to rotate, going with Jacob DeSerres.

The Dinos are now 10-4-0 and meet up with the Evil Monkeys for 4 games in the next 3 weeks. At the same time the 6-8-0 Bisons will be facing UBC.

In an arena filled with the joyous sounds of banjos and kazoos the Canine Hillbillies gained a measure of revenge on the Feline Hillbillies with a 2-1 shoot-out victory. This was a key win for the Mangy Ones. The point they gained gives them a 5-point bulge in the race for a playof berth and pulls them even with Manitoba just 2 points behind UBC in the race for 4th.

Regina has rebounded quite well. This was a 3-point weekend. And it was not one where a goaltender stole a point. They outshot Sask 41-39 on the night, including 21-5 in the 2nd period. Lucas Gore was again in goal for Regina, and Sask continued their rotation going with Jordon Cooke.

The H0rny Ones have shown that they are much tougher team now then at the start of the season. They had previously been doing well at home. This weekend, they also put up a credible performance on the road. MRU sits comfortably in 3rd place. Lethbridge is 6 points out of a playoff berth. But with a double-header against Sask next weekend are not out of it just yet. Dalyn Flette again picked up a win for Dalyn Flette while Warren Shymko took the loss for Lethbridge.

On a weekend where the CW features series between teams who have not faced one another so far this season, the Bison hockey squad is out in British California. They earned themselves a well-deserved victory on Friday night. UBC had a good on-line presentation to showcase a solid performance by the Bisons.

Devan Dubyk saved 33 of the 34 shots he faced. (He now has a 2.02 GAA and a.933 save percentage.) Jordan DePape scored both Bison goals, his 6th and 7th of the season. The first goal was a chip-in from the slot following a charge up ice by Channing Bresciani. The winner was a PP goal with less than 2 minutes to go, when he deflected a point shot from Brock Sutherland.

Eric Williams held the Tweety-Birds in the game, stopping 38 out of 40 shots he faced.

The game was very close and both sides generated more than the usual amount of scoring chances. It appeared that the Bisons wore down the Tweety-Birds as the game went on. They had two powerplays in the last 10 minutes, generated as a result of concentrated offensive pressure.

The result leaves both teams and Sask tied for 4th with 14 points. This means that a quarter-final playoff series between these teams is a distinct possibility.

The Saturday matinee rematch will start at 2:00 PST, 4:00 CST and can be seen on-line at CanadaWest.tv.

A Cougar v Cougar confrontation adds a little spark to any Friday night. The Banjo-Cats outshot the New-Kittens-on-the-Block 39-33, but Cam Lanigan in the MRU goal held the fort. The win puts MRU into a solid 3rd place with a 10-5-0 record. Regina falls to 3-11-1 and are 7 points out of a playoff spot. Regina has been playing decent hockey lately, and cannot be counted out of the rematch, which goes Saturday at 2:30 p.m.

This home-and-home series went in an unusual Thursday-Friday format. When Bedrock U won the opener one could say "that's nice for them". The Evil Monkeys dominated the shot clock, 46-21. But that 3-0 lead they spotted to the Dinos was just too much. The final Dino goal was into an empty net.

Then when Bedrock U waltzed into Edmontown and picked up a sweep, a race for 1st place was suddenly on. The Monkeyas are 13-3-0, and the Dinos are 12-4-0. The Bisons did well against both teams the last two weeks, with two narrow losses to the Apes and a split with Bedrock.

The H0rny Ones are no pushovers on home ice. The Banjo-Mutts discovered that on Friday night. Sask dominated the 1st period, leading 3-0 and outshooting their hosts 16-10. The 2nd period was funny, in that Lethbridge scored twice on only 5 shots. The stage was set for a tight 3rd period. Lethbridge answered the challengeby bombarding Ryan Holfeld with 18 shots in the 3rd period. He stopped them all to nail down the W.

The win allows Sask to tie UBC and Manitoba in 4th place wigth 14 points. Lethbridge falls to 3-12-0 and a point behind Regina.

The Bison hockey team helped heal the hurt of the football team's Uteck Bowl loss (what a classic game that was!) by completing a sweep of UBC on Saturday afternoon.

The Herd played down a man. They often travel with just 20 when air travel is involved. Kyle Rous dressed Friday, but not Saturday. They still had just 10 forwards, so more than likely a defenceman was conscripted to the forward lines.

Offence was generated from unusual sources. Darren Bestland scored his first two goals of the season (the 2nd one coming into an empty net) and Joel Schreyer recorded his first as a Bison. As usual Deven Dubyk started in goal and registered another banner outing, stopping 27 of the 28 shots he faced. He now has a record of 8-6-0 with two shutouts, a 1.95 GAA and a .935 save percentage. The only goaltender with a better save percentage is Kriz Lazaruk from Calgary.

The result leaves the Bisons tied for 4th with Sask at 8-8-0 whilst UBC sits in 6th at 6-8-2.

The first semester ends next weekend with the Bisons off to visit the Evil Monkeys and UBC is off to visit Calgary. Oddly, the CW is reversing the draw of week 6 in week 9. They repeated week 1 in week 7. Usually they repeat week 1 in week 8, win week 9, etc. But not this year, supposedly due to the mess created by the Universiade.

When Cougars do battle on a Saturday night, country music is normally involved. However, this was a matinee on ice and the only Cougars wore skates, rather than piles of makeup, high heels, and hairspray. Both scenarios can be entertaining in their own way, I suppose.

Nevertheless, the ascent of the CW lesser-lights from cannon fodder to basic opponent seems to be well-established. The Green Cougars deserved a weekend split and got it. MRU held a 2-1 lead head into the 3rd period before the Banjo-Cats got control of the catnip. Regina had a 3-2 lead in the final minute of play then scored into an empty net. MRU got that back with mere seconds remaining.

Regina remains in 7th but now pulls to within 5 points of UBC. MRU sits 3rd, 4 points behind Calgary and 4 ahead of Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

Both sides will host series next weekend. Regina will face Lethbridge and MRU will face Saskatchewan.

The scoreline is a bit misleading here. The H0rny Ones actually gave the Banjo-Mutts all they could handle, even outshooting them 30-25 on the night. After Lethbridge tied the game in the 3rd period at 1-1, Sask scored two goals 11 seconds apart to vault into the lead. They notched another about 3 minutes later and an empty-netter to demoralize the `Horns.

In the odd pattern of games on this year's CW schedule, these two teams are playing each other for the second time in just 3 weeks and will be finished with each other, at least until playoffs.

When the two sides played in Friendly Manitoba the games were very close, with the Evil Monkeys winning 3-2 and 4-2 (with an empty-netter). The Monkeys followed with a convincing sweep of UBC and then a surprise sweep at the hands of Bedrock U. Meanwhile, the Bisons earned a split with Bedrock U and then swept UBC.

The Apes had looked to have rebounded to their form of 2013-14 when they won the national championship. But they appear to be devilled by their tendency to lose games despite enjoying a vast advantage on the shot clock.

Saudi Alberta has an incredible 651 shots (an average of 40.7 shots per game). By comparison, the Bisons have 457 shots, or 28.6 per game (which is pretty average). The onslaught of shots usually works well for Alberta. The Bisons have 38, which is in the meaty part of the CW curve. To put this in perspective, MRU is second in shots (502) and goals (51).

The Monkeys are paced by two key forwards: Jordan Hickmott (12-14-26) and T.J. Foster (11-13-24). No other Primate has more than 5 goals. All together, Alberta has 7 top 20 scorers, while the Bisons have 3.

The gap on the defensive side of the game is comparatively tiny. Alberta is 2nd in GAA (33 GA) and Manitoba is tied for 3rd (39 GA). The Monkeys rotated goaltenders last year, and followed suit for much of this year. Now, however, veteran Kurtis Mu-u-ucha has taken over the #1 ranks from Luke Siemens. The Bisons have ridden Deven Dubyk. His .935 save percentage is better than either Alberta goaltender and has been a big factor for the Bisons. He is bound to be tested inside the Monkey Cage.

If the Bisons could even manage a split of this series they would be in an excellent position down the home stretch. They will be finished with the #1 and #2 teams in conference standings, and if either in or tied for 4th they would be quite happy.

The odds of either cellar-dweller making the playoffs are not good. However, those odds would go up markedly with a 4 point weekend. Regina has the best chance, being 5 points behind UBC. Both sides have shown improvement since the start of the season. However, I believe that both will be largely confined to a spoiler's role in the new year.

IMO the New-Kittens-on-the-Block have to some extent over-achieved so far. I fully expected them to be a solid mid-ranked team in the CW. However, they have flirted with true contender status through this first semester. They currently have 20 points (4 points better than Sask and Manitoba) and enjoy a 3rd place standing. A sweep of the Banjo-Mutts would make them prohibitive favourites to secure at least a 4th place finish, which would allow them to host a quarter-final series.

MRU has the scoring. Their 50 goals is 2nd best in the CW. The question is now in goal. The question now is in goal. Dalyn Flette racked up a .934 save percentage. However, Cam Lanigan has had to fill in while Flette has been innjured. He is sporting a .914 save percentage, which is also very good, however it seems the Blue Cats aren't playing with quite the same confidence. They are coming off a split with Regina.

But what about the Saskatchewanites? They have been a CW power for a long time now, and in fact used their host status to get all the way to the national final last season. But their team has been slowly downgrading. IMO if they are swept in this series they will be in serious trouble.

Not so long ago these teams were fighting it out for 4th place on an annual basis, and always with Bedrock U coming out on top. Since then the Prehistoric Ones have vaulted into contender status whilst UBC has been in battles for the final playoff berth.

UBC is currently in a slump, being swept the last two weekends by Alberta and Manitoba. Bedrock U is coming off a sweep of Alberta. These teams did play 3 weeks ago, and split.

Like Manitoba, UBC will be done with Calgary and Alberta after this weekend. a split here would probably leave them delighted.

This game followed the usual trend. The Evil Monkeys racked up the shots but the scoreboard remained nip-and-tuck all the way through. The Bisons got goals from Channing Bresciani (his 1st as a Bison, which tied the game at 1-1) and a pair of goals by Shaq Merasty (his 6th and 7th, which tied the game at 3-3 in the 2nd period). However, the Monkeys were able to regain the lead heading into the 3rd period, and a late insurance goal in the 3rd put the game away. Deven Dubyk stopped 39 of the 44 shots he faced in the Bison goal, while Kurtis Mucha stopped 13 of 16 shots in the Monkey goal.

Both of these teams really need points in a frantic bid to get back in the playoff race. The Banjo-Cats pciked up the win, moving to 5-11-1 on the season, and within 4 points of UBC and 6th place. At 3-14-0 it would appear that the H0rny Ones will nit be mounting a late season surge.

The struggling Tweety-Birds flew into the Town of Bedrock and came from behind to force OT before losing to the Dinos. Chris Collins scored twice for Bedrock U, including the OT winner. There were low shot totals, 24 by UBC and 23 for Calgary. Jacob DeSerres started for Bedrock and Mark Hewitt for UBC. After Eric Williams performed well against the Bisons last week, it is surprising that they did not go back to him.

This series is perhaps one that will redfine the status of these two teams. MRU's win leaves them safely tucked into 3rd place. While the bonus point boosts Sask into 4th, they are in quite a battle with Manitoba and UBC and have the toughest schedule down the home stretch. The Banjo-Mutts appeared to have this one in the bag. They held leads of 2-0 and 3-1. It took two late goals 4 seconds apart to draw MRU even. Cam Lanigan got the W for MRU stopping 22 of just 25 shots. Meannwhile, Ryan Holfeld stopped 35 shots for Sask.

Once again, the Bisons kept it close against the Evil Monkeys but were unable to collect any points in the standings. Although the Bisons now fall to 8-10-0 in the standings, they are finished with the top two teams in the conference (Monkeys and Bedrock U). Against their remaining 5 opponents, the first time around they went 7-3-0. If they repeat that record they could finish 3rd, and certainly no worse than 4th.

The Bisons played one man short. Brett Dudar dressed for Friday's game, but not for Saturday's. Deven Dubyk was once again in the Bison goal and stopped 30 of 33 shots. The Monkeys rotated goalies, and Luke Siemens stopped 13 of the 15 shots he faced.

Shaq Merasty gave the Bisons a 1-0 lead at the 1st intermission with his 8th goal of the season. However, the Apes scored twice in the 2nd period, with the combo of Hickmott and Foster hitting the scoreboard. The Bisons weren't done, however, as Jordan DePape recorded his 8th goal of the season early in the 3rd period. Riley Kieser recorded the winner mid-way through the 3rd.

The entire conference now breaks for first term exams, followed by the Christmas holiday. Conference play resumes on Saturday, January 3rd when the entire conference will play Saturday-Sunday double-headers. The Bisons will host UBC Saturday at 6:00 and Sunday at 1:00.

Friday night's key loss must have disheartened the H0rny Ones. On the other hand, the Banjo-Cats are no doubt delighted with their matinee triumph. They are now just 3 points out of a playoff berth. However, they are now done with Lethbridge and Sask, against whom they went 4-3-1. Against their remaining opponents they are only 2-8-0 so far. Lucas Gore got the win in the Hillbilly goal, and Warren Shymko and Alex Sirard split the duties in the Lethbridge goal.

The Tweety-Birds burst out of their 5-game slump with a much-needed victory in the Town of Bedrock. The linked U of C report describes UBC's goals as "fluky", followed by a late empty-netter. I doubt that the Dinos will be able to mount a threat for 1st place now. Eric Williams got the win in goal for UBC, while Bedrock stuck with Jacob DeSerres. They usually rotate, however Kris Lazaruk did not dress for either game. UBC are the Bisons' next opponent, which IMO will be the series to decide which team will finish in the top 4 and host a playoff round.

IMO this series represents a real tipping point in the season. MRU has now solidified their 3rd place standing, sitting just 2 points back of Bedrock U. Sask could be a quarter-final road team. They are tied with UBC and one point ahead of Manitoba. But after they play Lethbridge next weekend, they finish with 8 games against teams who beat them 6 times in 8 tries so far. Cam Lanigan again got the win for MRU, with Flette still on the shelf. Sask continued to rotate goaltenders, starting Jordon Cooke.

The annual game (at least since 2009) between a CIS team and the Team Canada Juniors will in fact be two games this year, on Dec 13th and 14th. Both games will be held at the Mattamy Athletic Centre, the former MLG. The CIS team will be a selection from the three universities located in The Big Lemon, Ryerson, Toronto, and York. Each side will contribute 7 players and a coach.

What a dismal performance by the Selects from The Big Lemon. The Ryerson Rams hosted the game, and supplied 1/3 of the squad. The York Lions and Toronto Blues also supplied 1/3 each.

Neither Petan nor Morrissey dressed for TC. Local boy Madison Bowey did, and I believe I saw him practicing with the Bisons a year ago.

Last year Team Canada played a select squad from the same 3 institutions and won 3-0. The rematch goes Sunday at 12:00 CST, 1:00 EST.

All Sports - 1st Semester Standings

As we have reached the end of the 2014 semester in the 2014-15 season, here is a look at where things stand in all sports.

Men's Hockey
Code: Select all
Team            GP   W  RL  OTL  Pts
Alberta         18  15   3   0   30
Calgary         18  13   5   0   26
Mount Royal     18  12   6   0   24
Saskatchewan    18   8   9   1   17
UBC             18   7   8   3   17
Manitoba        18   8  10   0   16
Regina          18   6  11   1   13
Lethbridge      18   3  15   0    6


Women's Hockey
Code: Select all
Team            GP  RW  OTW RL  OTL  Pts
Saskatchewan    16   8   3   3   2   32
Calgary         16   8   1   3   4   30
Alberta         16   9   1   6   0   29
Manitoba        16   8   2   5   1   29
UBC             16   7   1   4   4   27
Regina          16   4   6   5   1   25
Lethbridge      16   4   0  12   0   12
Mount Royal     16   1   1  11   3    8


Note: The top six teams qualify for the playoffs.

Something worth pointing out here is that in women's hockey they have adopted the IIHF 3-2-1 point system. All games are worth 3 points. A regulation win is worth 3, an overtime or shootout win is worth 2, and an overtime or shootout loss is worth 1. I guess they should switch the columns for RL and OTL around to make it look more sensible. I like this idea. However, there have been only 5 games go into overtime so far in men's hockey.

Note: The top seven teams from the Pioneer Division and the top three teams from Explorer Division qualify for the playoffs.

This is the first season for basketball's new quasi-tiered format. The Pioneer teams play each other twice, and the Explorer teams play each other four times, so everybody plays 20 regular season games. With so many colleges in BC and Alberta becoming universities there has been much growth in the conference, and the newest members have basically been dumped into a new division.

The 48th annual Wesmen Classic will again be held Dec 28-30. No teams from the States are coming up this year for the first time ever. In fact there will be only two teams from outside the Pioneer Division: Lakehead (9-5 in the OUA) and NAIT (12-0 in the ACAC). The knockout format tournament starts Dec 28th with the following games:
noon Calgary v Brandon
2 pm Lakehead v Alberta
6 pm Winnipeg v NAIT
8 pm Manitoba v Regina

Note: The top seven teams qualify for the playoffs.

With the growth of the CW it might be time to revisit the playoff format. The CW dominates CIS volleyball. So any team that can scrape into the playoffs could win the CIS title. The Bison men used to be dominant but they have failed to meet expectations. The Bison women won the national title last year, with a shock upset of UBC.

Jet prospect Eric Comrie shutout the Selects from the Big Lemon as the Team Canada juniors ran up another convincing win. Just remember one thing: the football teams from the Big Lemon are even worse than their hockey teams! Maybe next training TC will face somebody decent!
