Sunday's Action

Three games on the CIS slate today and all three have playoff implications with the losers of two games done for the season.

In Toronto, the Varsity Blues host the Ottawa Gee-Gees in the OUA East sudden-death semi-final. Toronto swept Ottawa in the regular season and the winner of this afternoon's game (3 PM Spadina and Harbord in Toronto) advances to next Saturday's OUA East Final at Carleton against the undefeated Ravens. According to the Rogers Television web site, the game will be shown in both Toronto and Ottawa on a tape-delay basis beginning at 6 PM.

In Brandon, the Bobcats and Cougars play the deciding game of their Great Plains division championship series with Brandon walloping the Cougars by 37 last night after Regina pulled off a dramatic win on Friday. A Cougars win puts them into the Canada West Final Four tournament while Brandon would have to wait until the wild card selection for the tournament is made to see if their season continues. A Brandon win would most likely propel the Alberta Golden Bears into the Final Four as the wild card.

In Halifax, Cape Breton Capers and Saint Mary's Huskies meet in the second of their two game weekend series to end the regular season. Saint Mary's nine point win yesterday gave them the inside track on third place (Huskies cannot finish second). The Capers must win today to finish second and receive a bye; with a loss, Cape Breton finishes fourth and will face Dalhousie in the quarter-finals.
