Meh. UBC won CIS Nationals for men’s soccer, over Cape Breton in the finals (1-0). If you haven’t read our recap of last week’s Canada West finals between the Bears and UBC, it was a thriller, going into overtime with UBC escaping 2-1. There’s no doubt that UBC is a quality side, with strong players everywhere on the pitch. However, the Bears were right there the entire way, earning a 2-2 tie in their only regular season match of the year, en route to the eventual close Canada West finals game.
The CIS tournament this year was… different. Two surprise teams made the semis, in Cape Breton and UQTR. Carleton and the Bears were both upset in round one, and York DIDN’T EVEN MAKE NATIONALS. If you didn’t know, York is a Canadian powerhouse soccer team, ranked #1 in Canada.
