156
CIS Top 10

 
OTTAWA (CIS) – The Laval Rouge et Or top the CIS football national rankings for the third time in as many polls this season after they moved to 2-0 in league play thanks to their second straight domination of a Top-10 opponent.
 
For the third consecutive week, the reigning two-time Vanier Cup champions received all 30 first-place votes and a perfect 300 points from the Football Reporters of Canada panel.
 
Rounding out the new Top 10 are the No. 2 Calgary Dinos (2-0 / 267 points / no change), No. 3 Western Mustangs (2-0 / 243 / no change), No. 4 McMaster Marauders (3-0 / 194 / no change), No. 5 Montreal Carabins (1-1 / 172 / no change), No. 6 Guelph Gryphons (2-1 / 128 / up one), No. 7 Saskatchewan Huskies (2-0 / 127 / down one), No. 8 Mount Allison Mounties (2-0 / 74 / up two), as well as the No. 9 Manitoba Bisons (1-1 / 61) and No. 10 Concordia Stingers (2-0 / 14), both unranked last Tuesday.

In women’s soccer, the Trinity Western University Spartans move up one position in this week’s CIS Top 10 to become the third team in as many coaches’ polls this season to reach the top of the national rankings.
 
The Spartans, who have captured the CIS title each of the past two years, improved to 3-0-1 in league play over the past weekend thanks to a 3-1 win over Thompson Rivers and a 5-1 victory against UBC Okanagan.
 
The Western Mustangs (5-1-0), who received the No. 1 nod last Tuesday, drop to fourth place this week after suffering their first loss of the campaign, a 2-1 setback against York on Saturday. Undefeated York (6-0-0), which wasn’t ranked a week ago, is No. 5 in the new poll.
 
In men’s soccer, the top-ranked and defending two-time national champ UBC Thunderbirds are off to a perfect 4-0 start in Canada West action following a pair of comfortable wins over UNBC, 5-1 and 3-0.
 
York (5-0-1) edges UNB (4-0-0) for No. 2 in the new Top 10. The two teams were tied for second place last week.
 
In women’s rugby, the reigning CIS titlist Alberta Pandas, who are set to open conference play on Sept. 20 against Lethbridge, top the coaches’ poll for a third straight week.
 
Guelph (2-0) and StFX (2-0) both move up one spot this week to No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.
