CIS TOP TEN TUESDAY (#4): Four McGill teams ranked this week

News

Published: 27 Sep 2011

 

OTTAWA - Four McGill varsity teams are listed in the CIS Top 10 national rankings this week. The Martlets cross-country running squad are ranked No.5 in that sport's inaugural CIS rankings of the 2011 season. Also ranked fifth is the Redmen soccer team, which dropped one spot after splitting a pair of games last weekend. The soccer Martlets, which also split their two contests, dropped two spots to No.8 and the rugby Martlets remained eighth after losing to No.3 Laval.

 

There are no changes at the top in women's soccer, men's soccer and women's rugby as Wilfrid Laurier, York and St. Francis Xavier once again occupy the No. 1 positions.

 

In cross-country, Guelph opens with a comfortable 8.4-point lead over McMaster in the women's rankings (98.9 to 90.5) but holds a slim 1.2-point cushion over Windsor on the men's side (95.6 to 94.4).

 

The Gryphons will try to add to their remarkable streak of success later this fall when the CIS championships are held in Quebec City on Nov. 12. Guelph has claimed the last six women's team titles and five straight men's banners, both CIS records.

 

In women's soccer, top-ranked Laurier easily improved to 7-0 in OUA conference play this past weekend with a 4-1 win over cross-town rival Waterloo. The Golden Hawks hit the road this week to face Brock (2-3-2) on Wednesday and Guelph (2-4-1) on Sunday.

 

Montreal (5-0-1), reigning CIS champion Queen's (6-0-1), Alberta (5-1-0) and Trinity Western (4-1-0) round out the top five.

 

In men's soccer, defending national champion York (5-0-3) holds on to the top spot despite settling for a pair of 1-1 draws last weekend, at No. 6 Western and at Windsor. The Lions host Waterloo (2-6-0) on Saturday before visiting UOIT (1-6-1) on Sunday.

 

UBC (2-0-3), St. Francis Xavier (4-0-1), Cape Breton (4-0-1) and McGill (4-1-0) are ranked two to five.

 

In women's rugby, reigning CIS champion StFX moved to 3-0 in AUS action thanks to a 36-0 shutout of UPEI (2-1). The X-Women host the Panthers for a rematch on Saturday.

 

Guelph (3-0), Laval (3-0) and Lethbridge (2-0) follow in order in the new Top 10, while McMaster (3-0) and Alberta (2-0) are tied for fifth place.
