Week 2 College/University Recap

(Waterloo) Rain managed to wipe out a couple of series this past week but for the most part the 20-teams across the two leagues managed to get most of the week 2 games played. Here is our recap of each league, and the new UTM College & University Top-10.

OCAA:

Humber finished the week very strong over the weekend taking series from Fanshawe and Durham. That runs the Hawks streak to 5 games following a Tuesday loss to Conestoga, the Hawks won their final 5 games on this week's extended home stand. Speaking of Conestoga, they played arguably the top-2 teams in the league this week (all on the road) and came away with a nice 2-2- split. The Condors are making it happen with some great pitching, which shut-down both the Hawks, and Lords this past week. Durham remains a tough out each and every game, and although they did lose a few this week, no question they remain a force each series. St Clair managed to right the ship and now sits 4-4 on the season. Fanshawe will need to get their game turned around, or they may lose sight of the front-runners by the end of next week.

Here are the OCAA Standings

OIWFA

Laurier Golden Hawks are the league's only remaining undefeated team, and also the last of the undefeated teams across both loops this fall. Laurier won 3-games over the weekend at home defeating Western Mustangs in a 1-0 rain soaked affair, and then Sunday taking two games from the Windsor Lancers. Brock and Western are right on Laurier's heels however heading into week 3, as Western has a record of 8-1 and Brock sits at 7-1. The Eastern Division has all kinds of parity going on, Queen's leads the division at 5-3, but Ryerson and Toronto are all within a game sitting 4-4. Ottawa, and York remain in the mix in the east. The top-8 teams (3 from each division and 2 WC's) make the post-season tournament. Right now it looks like an 8-8 or possibly one 7-9 record might be the mark needed to get that 8th spot.
