FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BLACKBERRY - CIS TOP TEN TUESDAY (#3)
Reigning national champions remain at No. 1

OTTAWA (CIS)
– Reigning national champion Trinity Western and Laval hold on to the No. 1 positions in this week’s CIS soccer rankings.

In women’s soccer, the two-time defending champion Trinity Western Spartans (2-0-0) kicked off the Canada West schedule last weekend with a pair of road wins, blanking Lethbridge 2-0 on Saturday before edging Calgary 2-1 on Sunday thanks to a 65th minute goal by all-Canadian striker Nikki Wright.

Rounding out the third national coaches poll of the fall are No. 2 Montreal (2-0-0), No. 3 Queen’s (4-0-0), No. 4 UBC (2-0-0), No. 5 McGill (2-0-0), No. 6 Ottawa (1-0-1), No. 7 Wilfrid Laurier (3-0-0), No. 8 Alberta (2-0-0), No. 9 Laval (2-0-0) and No. 10 UPEI (1-0-1).

Laurier, Alberta and Laval were all unranked a week ago.

In men’s soccer, the Laval Rouge et Or (2-0-0), who captured their first-ever CIS title in 2009, are also off to an unblemished start in conference play thanks to a 7-0 whitewash of UQTR and a 2-1 win over UQAM. A penalty goal in the final seconds of Sunday’s contest against UQAM robbed Laval of a second straight shutout.

The new Top 10 is completed by No. 2 Toronto (3-0-1), No. 3 McGill (1-0-0), No. 4 UBC (1-0-0), No. 5 Western Ontario (4-0-0), No. 6 York (2-1-0), No. 7 Trinity Western (0-1-0), No. 8 Calgary (2-0-0), No. 9 Saint Mary’s (2-0-0) and No. 10 Wilfrid Laurier (3-0-0).

Western, Calgary, Saint Mary’s and Laurier were unranked last Tuesday.
