Recaps from last night's CIS Action; Tonight's QUBL preview

Jim Wallace St. Catharines Standard  Gryphons pull ahead of Badgers for final playoff spot

Mary Caton of Windsor Star on Lancers comeback win last night in which they trailed by as many as 16 in the second half.

Matthew Wuest of Halifax Metro  Tigers withstand Haywood barrage  also AUS history hangs in the balance

Glenn MacDonald of Halifax Chronicle-Herald  Tigers pound Huskies

Bishop's (1-12) at McGill (8-5)  These teams met last Saturday in Lennoxville with the Redmen pulling away late in the third quarter in a game in which both teams either defended very well or couldn't make shots (likely a combination of the two).  For the Redmen, this is the first of three consecutive home games to complete their regular season - with a sweep of these games beginning tonight, then Saturday vs. Concordia and next week vs. UQAM - McGill will host a first-round playoff game.  No web cast appears to be scheduled although Redmen do usually webcast on SSN Canada.

UQAM (5-8) at Laval (9-4)  Citadins still have an outside shot at third place however McGill must lose all 3 at home and UQAM must sweep.  Rouge et Or have had their difficulty matching up with UQAM's speed and strength - the last time these two teams met at the PEPS Citadins won handily.  Laval owns the tiebreaker with both McGill and Concordia and completes their season against Bishop's and UQAM again.  This could be a first round playoff preview.  Game is available on Rouge et Or TV

QUBL Standings
Concordia 10-4
