The McGill Redmen delivered the knockout punch ousting the Carleton Ravens 3-2 from the PotashCorp University Cup Friday.
“I’m very proud of our group of young men who put Carleton on the map of CIS hockey,” head coach Marty Johnston said after the loss. “We lost to two very good teams, give them credit they have a rich history and they’re been here before but at the end of the day I wouldn’t change anything.”
Two early third period goals proved enough to separate two University champions as the University of Windsor Lancers beat the Acadia Axemen 4-2 Thursday night.
Lancers’ head coach Kevin Hamlin said even though his team is seeded third in the tournament, behind only Alberta and Acadia, he believes his team has what it takes to surprise everyone this weekend.
Kurtis Mucha stood tall between the pipes for the University of Alberta Golden Bears, not allowing the number one ranked team in the country to fall behind again at the national championships.
“You never want to get behind like we did last year,” Mucha said after the opening game at the 2014 CIS University Cup. “This is my first win at this tournament looking back so this is huge and we want to carry this over into Saturday.”
The playoffs is something the Regina Pats organization hasn't experience too much in recent years and the experience level of a number of their players definitely reflect that.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders are looking to add some depth to their defensive line by signing two import players.
The team announced on Thursday that Trent Allmang-Wilder, 22, and Lindsey Witten, 25, have signed contracts with the team. No details of the deals are being released.
It's been a busy year for Regina Pats Vice President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Chad Lang.
He's been hard at work shaping a roster that would eventually become the 2013-14 WHL East Division Champions; a title very few thought they had a chance to win.
Tim Bozon is now in stable condition and has been moved out of the intensive care unit.
The star Kootenay Ice hockey player was admitted to a Saskatoon hospital early this month after being diagnosed with meningitis.
Bozon’s parents said in a media release that he is awake, moving around in his bed, trying to feed himself and trying to speak.
He had been in a coma and doctors were slowly trying to wake him up.
The Bozon family is thankful for the support they are receiving through things like anonymous gifts, restaurant vouchers and fruit baskets.
There's a brand new facility in Regina for hockey players of all ages and skill levels to work on their game.
The Peak Performance Hockey training centre officially opened their doors on Tuesday afternoon on the second floor of the Co-Operators Centre in Regina between the Prairie Mobile and Regina Motor Products rinks.
The facility is actually the first of its kind in Saskatchewan, but not new to the world of hockey at all.
The Riders defensive backfield is getting some insurance.
On Tuesday the team announced the signings of import defensive backs Greg McCoy and Mark LeGee along with non-import defensive back Hugo Lopez. As usual, terms of the deal were not released.
Lopez is entering his fourth year in the CFL. Lopez was drafted by the Eskimos in the second round of the 2011 CFL Draft. After two seasons in green and gold Lopez joined the Argos last year. Lopez has played 11 career games picking up eight special teams tackles.
It's not known at this point who will be the starting running back this year for the Riders but we know who will be overlooking the position.
As the Green Zone first reported on Sunday evening; the Riders officially named former Hamilton Ti-Cats and Montreal Alouettes running back Avon Cobourne as the team's running backs coach on Monday.
Cobourne last played in the CFL in 2012 and has been working in insurance in Florida since; while Cobourne found that work rewarding he definitely missed the football life.
