NCAA vs. CIS summer games begin tomorrow night


The annual stable of NCAA program visits to Canada continues this summer and there will be CIS teams hosting NCAA teams virtually each day in August.  Thanks to the wonderful work of Martin Timmerman, we have the entire schedule which we’ve outlined by day (see below).

The schedule kicks off tonight in Montreal as Stetson Hatters from the NCAA Division 1 Atlantic Sun conference meet UQAM Citadins, coming off a strong season under rising second year Head Coach Nate Philippe.   The game begins at 5:30 PM and we are being told that tonight’s action will be a controlled scrimmage rather than a full-fledge game.

Tomorrow night, the Hatters, who last season lost in overtime to Florida Gulf Coast in the Atlantic Sun conference championship game, travel to Ottawa to tangle with the defending CIS national champion Carleton Ravens at 7:30 PM ET.  After finishing the regular season at 10-21, Stetson upset both NJIT and Limpscomb en route to the championship game of their tournament before bowing to the Eagles.

Two other CIS teams, uOttawa Gee-Gees and Brock Badgers, are currently en route to the lovely Central America nation of Costa Rica where both teams will practice and play NCAA teams.  Look for more information on this trip in future posts.  The Gee-Gees will face this coming season without last season’s 6’9″ OUA All-Star Nathan McCarthy who has decided to move back home to Southern Ontario.
