BLACKBERRY - CIS TOP TEN TUESDAY (#7)
Spartans women’s soccer drops one spot

OTTAWA (CIS)
– The Trinity Western University women’s soccer team ended their mini skid this past weekend by scoring six goals to earn a 2-2 tie with Fraser Valley and a 4-0 win over Victoria, but the outcome still resulted in the two time national champion’s dropping a spot to No. 8 in the rankings. The Spartan men had a solid 2-2 tie with now No. 6 British Columbia, but TWU still remains unranked.

On top of the rankings there were no changes this week in the No. 1 spots in the CIS national rankings in soccer and cross-country running.

Alberta (women’s soccer), Laval (men’s soccer), McMaster (women’s cross country) and Guelph (men’s cross country) all hold on to their No. 1 positions.

In women’s soccer, No. 1 Alberta (7-0-1) enjoyed a break during Thanksgiving weekend. The Pandas are back in action this week with home dates against Fraser Valley (4-3-1) on Saturday and Victoria (2-3-3) on Sunday.

The past week was highlighted by a 1-0 win by No. 5 Ottawa (9-1-2) over then-No. 3 Queen’s (10-2-0) in an OUA East battle last Wednesday.

In men’s soccer, reigning CIS champion Laval (7-0-0) also enjoyed a well-deserved Thanksgiving pause. The top-ranked Rouge et Or travel to Montreal this weekend to face UQAM (3-3-1) on Friday and Concordia (1-5-0) on Sunday.

In cross-country running, the McMaster women and Guelph men both remain at No. 1 for the third time in as many rankings.
