CIS National Finals: V-Reds vs. Redmen

It all comes down to a best of one tonight as the #1 V-Reds host the #2 Redmen at 8pm at the AUC. Both of these teams enter the finals with 2-0 records at the tournament thus far.

The V-Reds, defeated Calgary 2-1 on Thursday, and then shutout Western 4-0 last night. The Redmen won their first game on Thursday, defeating the X-Men 2-1, then defeated Alberta decisively 6-3 to set up this #1 vs. #2 battle.

These two teams have never met before at a CIS Nationals, but have done battle six times since the '83-84 season, the V-Reds having prevailed on all those occasions.

Kyle Bailey, Luke Gallant, and Josh Kidd all come into the final game with 3 pts (1G 2A) for the V-Reds, while Guillaume Doucet and Max Langelier-Parent lead the Redmen with 3 pts each.

The game can be seen on Rogers Sportsnet, viewed as a webcast on the SSN network, and listened to on CHSR Radio.

I don't know about making fun of the other teams but I would settle for them saying the team names correctly. The last time I looked Fred Flintstones pet dinosaur Dino was not playing at the U-Cup. What Maroons!!

Actually, those guys have done a good job, so not sure where this crap is coming from. I heard the pig analogy and it was about the third goal being scored by Alberta in a 6-2 game. In other words, the goal didn't mean anything at that point in the game. I actually think those guys are very objective and it's nice to hear a balanced broadcast, not the homers you get from so many others. So kudos to the guys doing those games.

DNS, do you mean maroons or morons? I would suggest you might want to look in a mirror. I've seen some of your posts before. You're creepy to say the least.

We may have go the Deenos Diinos pronunciation wrong a few times, but it certainly wasn't on purpose. We, well me, were worse on Day 2 with Alberta/Acadia misspeaks, which I will attribute to those long four games to Acadia.

The officiating was truly awful yesterday, against both team, and certainly dampened the flow of what was an exciting non-trap game.

The officiating and the lengthy time outs really hurt the flow of what should have been a special night. the crowd was great, and to see the rink filled with red and people doing the wave, it was truly exciting. Just sad the game didn't match up because of what has been said before. Just hope the officiating tonight doesn't smother what should be a good game.
