Goal: MRU: Sims (32 shots, 28 saves); Calgary: Tetachuk (23 shots, 21 saves)

This cross-town series started early on Thursday night and the game stories, all-star selection stories, and summaries are all linked. This was actually a very decisive win for Bedrock U. The first period was wild, ending in a 2-2 draw. The Dinos dominated the second, outshooting the Bluegars 19-7 and taking a 4-2 lead into the third. MRU outshot the Dinos 9-3 in the third, but with a two goal deficit those 9 shots were not going to throw much of a scare.

Quick Summary
MRU: Z. Rawji (10:22 1st), R. Fromm-Delorme (13:08 3rd), B. Stevenson (19:34 3rd)
Calg: D. Anderson (15:39 2nd), J. Joseph (01:56 3rd), C. Gengenbach (04:02 3rd), C. Gengenbach (03:42 1st OT)
Goal: MRU: Sims (31 shots, 27 saves); Calgary: Tetachuk (24 shots, 21 saves)

This was a must-win for the Bluegars and, as has been the case every year, they came up just a wee bit short. They were leading 1-0 and on a PP when they surrendered a shorthanded goal. From then on, Bedrock U had the better of the play. However, a nice comeback, capped with a game-tieing goal with 26 seconds left, forced overtime.

This means that of the two CW Tier 1 teams eliminated so far, both were sent packing in overtime.

Bedrock U will be going back to the nationals, where they are currently on a 0-8 run. Their last win was 6-3 over Brandon in 1981.

Goal: Alta: Kruger (28 shots, 27 saves); UBC: Schwebius (29 shots, 25 saves)

The Evil Monkeys took control of this one in the third period, which is all I was able to watch. A 1-1 nip-and-tuck battle became a routine 4-1 victory. Can the T-irds stave off elimination?

UBC would host Calgary in the final if they win this series, whilst Alberta would head south should they win this.

Goal: Alta: Kruger (37 shots, 33 saves); UBC: Schwebius (13 shots, 11 saves)

The crazy thing about this game was that the Evil Monkeys never posted more than 5 shots in a period. Not at all like the old days, eh?

Also, there were two long delays due to arena malfunctions. One was a loose board, and the other was an ice divot which was repaired with a fire extinguisher. Not what you'd expect from such a fancy arena.

Sam Huo scored a hat-trick when UBC was trailing 2-1 to give them the lead in this one. He also scored on Friday, and had 14 goals and 19 assists in 24 games during the regular season.

I think I would sooner watch the Calgary stream than the UBC stream next weekend. To get this, the Monkeys must win. On the other hand, an Ape-free U-Cup would be a nice change.

Being a late-night west coast game, I could not post afterwards. In any event, Alberta still has not posted a game story as I write this.

This was an extremely defensive game, with sparse scoring chances. The T-irds held a 3-0 lead entering the 3rd period, then held the Monkeys to just four shots in the 3rd. The “big names” recruited by the Monkeys never did much.

Goal: Calg: Tetachuk (36 shots, 34 saves); UBC: Schwebius (21 shots, 16 saves)

This one started late, due to UBC hosting men’s and women’s finals and the women’s game going into OT.

The T-irds looked very good in the 1st period and were full grades for a 1-0 lead. But then came the 2nd period from Hell, or Bedrock. The Dinos scored 5 goals in just over 6 minutes, on just 9 shots in the period. The Dinos were 2-for-3 on the powerplay, which always helps.

The 3rd period had a little chippy BS but was largely uneventful. I was asleep before I could post a report and, with a busy Saturday, have the latest post possible right here.

The T-irds only won 2-1, but they were by far the better team in this one. They almost doubled Bedrock U’s shots total (41 to 21) and tripled it in the 3rd period (15 to 5). That’s right, a tie game entering the 3rd and the Dinos had only 5 measly shots. There was only one powerplay in the game, and UBC scored on it. Sunday night’s rubber match should be worth a view.

Goal: Calg: Tetachuk (36 shots, 31 saves); UBC: Schwebius (25 shots, 22 saves)

These late night games on work nights are tough! UBC built a 4-1 lead after two periods. Bedrock U mounted a 3rd period, closing the gap to 4-3 within 8 minutes of play. However, the game-tying goal was not to be. Make no mistake about it, UBC was by far the better team in this series. (Although not so much all season long.)

In any event, both sides are off to the U-Cup. Can the Dinos finally win a game there? More on that as the tournament approaches.

U.Q.T.R. 9 Calgary 5
U.Q.T.R. 8 Calgary 5

1988
York 4 Calgary 3

1990
Moncton 5 Calgary 4

1995
Guelph 4 Calgary 1

1996
Waterloo 5 Calgary 2

2000
U.Q.T.R. 3 Calgary 2
Alberta 4 Calgary 2

2011
New Brunswick 2 Calgary 1
Western Ontario 3 Calgary 2

2015
Guelph 3 Calgary 1

2023
U.P.E.I. 4 Calgary 2

2024
T.M.U. 2 Calgary 1 (2ot)

This losing streak probably impressed Brendan Shanahan. I imagine he was in the Bedrock locker room with a fistfull of contracts.

The Dinos had a slight edge in play through regulation time, outshooting The Bald 37-24. Overtime was just the opposite, with The Bald outshooting Bedrock 21-14. The Dinos had 4 of the 5 powerplays, and scored on one.

Thursday’s games, and the rest of the tournament, can be streamed at CBC Gem, CBC.ca, or CBC’s YouTube channel.

Quick Summary
Monc: J. Lapointe (09:54 2nd)
UQTR: C. Beaudoin (00:55 1st), K. Gauthier (05:03 1st), S. Lafrance (11:44 1st), F. Lafrance (08:57 2nd), F. Lafrance (14:27 2nd)
Goal: Monc: Adam (23 shots, 18 saves); UQTR: Gravel (34 shots, 33 saves)

In the battle of French schools, UQTR scored early and often and won this one going away. To be fair, the Eggs rallied and outshot UQTR. In the end, teams need goaltending to win here and only UQTR had it in this matinee.

UBC: J. Williams (14:31 1st), T. Rask (16:07 2nd)
Goal: McG: Shank (37 shots, 35 saves); UBC: Schwebius (14 shots, 11 saves)

Watching these teams peck away at each other, I had the notion that the T-irds would ultimately prevail. The score was always tight, but the play was mostly one way. The shots were 15-6 in the 2nd, and 14-2 in the 3rd, both in favour of UBC. Safe to say that UBC never got a save when they needed one.

TMU: none
Goal: UNB: Richard (22 shots, 22 saves); TMU: Edmonds (48 shots, 41 saves)

This was over early. The UNBREDS outshot The Bald 24-3 in the 1st period and racked up a 3-0 lead. They have outscored their opponents 11-0 over two games. They also have yet to lose this year. Is Vegas offering odds on the final?

Goal: McG: Shank (28 shots, 23 saves); UQTR: Gravel (29 shots, 25 saves)

This unofficial RSEQ championship was quite an even game. However, neither team had the kind of goaltending needed to pull of a monumental upset against The Squirrels. UQTR built a 3-1 lead, but then McGill stormed back to lead 4-3. The winning goal was scored in the last 4 minutes, but then McGill never really got their goaltender out for any length of time.

Goal: McG: Shank (26 shots, 24 saves); TMU: Edmonds (31 shots, 28 saves)

Morning hockey is hard to watch, but it can’t be easy to play, either. With The Bald clinging to a 2-1 lead late in the 3rd, McGill scored two late goals to claim the bronze. They deserve credit for this, having played the Saturday night game. McGill has no game story posted, but they did post a late story on Saturday’s semi-final (linked).

UQTR: none
Goal: UNB: Richard (23 shots, 23 saves); UQTR: Gravel (32 shots, 29 saves)

So three straight shutouts for the Squirrels, and not one loss all season. Watching this one, it never seemed like UQTR had a prayer. I admit that once the Jets’ game started (around the end of the 1st period) my attention was primarily on that one. After UNB, the rest of the field, and several teams eliminated in conference playoffs, were basically of the same calibre.

March 22, 2024: RED DEER POLY AND U.Q.A.C. TAKE TITLES

This win gives the Kings consecutive ACAC titles. Concordia was 9-15 in the regular season, good for 6th place in a 7-team league, and so their playoff run was quite a surprise. For Red Deer Poly, they scraped into 2nd place by barely edging out NAIT and Augustana. This gave them a bye past the quarter-final round.

The RSEQ Div 2 seems like a great idea, but not one team has a normal team website. No schedule & results pages, game stories, rosters, or stats. All they have is the RSEQ conference page, which is really awkward. I linked everything I could!

This is just a 3-team league (the ETS Piranhas are the only other team). All three teams played a lot of games against CEGEP teams from the RSEQ College division. A lot of those scores were never reported.

Also, Bishop's has a team in the AAU. They play basically a season of exhibition games. Their women's team joined the RSEQ in 2021-22. The men's team schedule page ends at the end of January. Link
