EZmac Posted November 6, 2006 Share Posted November 6, 2006 Figure I should start a new tread. (November 6, 2006) OTTAWA (CIS) – The Montreal Carabins enter this week’s CIS men’s soccer championship in Edmonton as the only undefeated team in the nation and the first obstacle between the Quebec champions and an unbeaten 2006 season will be the Toronto Varsity Blues on Thursday. Championship web site: www.universitysport.ca/e/championships/m_soccer/2006/ The University of Alberta hosts the 2006 CIS tournament from Nov. 9-12. The eight-team, single-elimination competition gets under way Thursday with the quarter-final match-ups and culminates on Sunday with the national final scheduled for 1 p.m. Mountain Time. The CIS major award winners and all-Canadians will be unveiled Friday night. New CIS champions will be crowned in Edmonton as 2005 Sam Davidson Memorial Trophy winner UBC lost in the Canada West semi-finals and failed to earn a ticket to Alberta’s capital. Montreal, 9-0-3 in the regular season - 11-0-3 overall - this fall, blanked the Laval Rouge et Or 1-0 on Sunday to claim its fourth consecutive QSSF title, its second straight over Laval. The OUA finalist Varsity Blues will prove a tough first-round opponent Thursday at 10 a.m. MT, having reached the national final a year ago. Canada West champion Trinity Western will battle AUS finalist Saint Mary’s in the other morning quarter-final, while Laval will meet Atlantic conference champion UNB at 1 p.m. in one of two afternoon tilts. The host Alberta Golden Bears will face off against OUA champion Western Ontario in the second 1 p.m. match-up. The Bears were undefeated through regular season play (9-0-5) and were ranked No. 1 in the final two national coaches poll of the campaign but went 0-2 at the Canada West Final Four this weekend.
