Saturday Action

2:00 pm Brock (14-6) at Laurier (8-12) The Golden Hawks honour 6'7" Trevor Csima and 6'5" Matt Walker, their two graduating seniors this afternoon and need a victory to clinch a playoff spot. The only way the Hawks don't qualify for the playoffs is if they lose both of their remaining games and Lakehead defeats Guelph tonight. Brock has a remote chance to finish first but they would have to win both games and have Windsor lose both of their remaining games against Waterloo today and then Laurier on Wednesday.
2:00 pm McMaster (9-10) at Western (11-9) Technically, the Marauders have not clinched a playoff spot but Mac would have to lose all 3 of their remaining games and have Lakehead defeat Guelph tonight. Western dominated the Marauders in Hamilton a couple of weeks ago and the maturing Mustangs are still learning to close out big games on the road, after squandering a big late lead at Brock on Wednesday. 93.3 CFMU
3:00 pm Windsor (15-5) at Waterloo (5-15) The Lancers officially clinch first with a victory while the young Warriors are looking to build on a nice win at home against Laurier.
8:00 pm Guelph (11-9) at Lakehead (8-13) Plain and simple, the T-Wolves must win tonight or they are eliminated from the playoffs. Guelph did a great job limiting the looks of 6'4" Kiraan Posey in their 19 point win last night and 6'6" Warren Thomas was in foul trouble all night. Still, Lakehead trailed by only 4 midway through the third quarter before imploding. Guelph moves closer to clinching a home playoff game with a win this afternoon. LakeheadRadio game can be seen on Pay-per-view as well

8:00 pm Toronto (16-5) at Ryerson (7-14) The Blues clinch second and a first round bye with a win in the second of back-to-back meetings between the two Toronto schools. The Rams look to clinch fifth spot with a win. A Blues win combined with a York win against Laurentian pushes the Rams back to sixth place.
8:00 pm Ottawa (16-5) at Carleton (21-0) The cross-town rivalry game is meaningful in that a Gee-Gees win combined with a Varsity Blues loss at Ryerson gives Ottawa second place. However, Ottawa has been hobbled by injuries and the Ravens are very difficult to defeat in the Ravens Nest. Game will be televised in the Ottawa area on Rogers Television.

8:00 pm Laurentian (4-17) at York (6-15) The Lions can still finish fifth and hammered the Voyageurs in Sudbury a couple of weeks ago. York has been hitting their stride lately behind 6'3" Tut Ruach but also getting contributions at both ends from emerging 6'10" post Stefan Haynes.

8:00 pm Bishop's (2-12) at Laval (12-2) Both teams are in the midst of long streaks as Laval has won 12 in a row and the Gaiters, after winning their first 2 games of the season, have suffered 12 losses in a row. Bishop's was officially eliminated from the playoffs last night and Laval officially clinched first place in the "Q" last weekend.

8:00 pm Acadia at Memorial 4 POINT GAME The Axemen look to move closer to locking up the first seed at the AUS tournament in the first of two four-point games in St. John's, NFLD. MUN remains winless on the season.

8:00 pm UPEI at UNB The door is open by a sliver for the Varsity Reds to make the playoffs but they must win the remainder of their games and have UPEI lose the remainder of theirs including a pair of head-to-head games this weekend, beginning tonight.
