The U-Cup has been awarded but that's not it for news. Last weekend saw the final two university/college titles up for grabs, and both were won by CW schools.


ALBERTA COLLEGES ATHLETIC CONFERENCE


MacEwan Griffins 4
NAIT Ooks 1

(MacEwan wins series 2-1.)

[ACAC]
[MacEwan]
[NAIT]

After many decades of mediocrity, MacEwan has now won back-to-back conference titles, both over their cross-town rival in the process. That's a lot of good scholastic hockey in Edmontown. Pity Concordia University of Edmonton trying to fight for recognition amongst that group.

Of note, in pre-season games NAIT lost 4-3 in overtime to the Alberta Evil Monkeys and a combined NAIT/MacEwan team beat the Edmonton Greasers Rookies 2-0.

BRITISH COLUMBIA INTERCOLLEGIATE HOCKEY LEAGUE


Trinity Western Spartans 4
Selkirk Saints 1

(TWU wins series 2-0.)

[BCIHL]
[Trinity Western]

After losing in the finals the last two seasons, Holy Trinity turned it around this year and won the whole thing. It is their first title since 2005-06. Simon Fraser had a boatload of points deducted for use of an ineligible player earlier in the season, which cost them a playoff berth. The new program at Vancouver Island University must be satisfied with their debut season.

Of note, in non-conference play, TWU and Selkirk went a combined 1-5 against ACAC teams. Also, SFU lost twice to NCAA teams and UBC beat TWU and SFU.
