Ch. Saint-Lambert Cavaliers vs. Élans de Garneau
RSEQ WOMEN'S SOCCER
September 22 @ 1:00 p.m. ET
     

In what is perhaps the top current rivalry in the CCAA, the last two CCAA Women’s Soccer champions square off this weekend in Quebec City. Saint-Lambert defeated Garneau last November in B.C. to win CCAA gold, ending Les Élans’ four year run as national champs. The Cavaliers (2-0-0) are ranked No. 1 in the country, while Garneau (2-0-1) is second in the RSEQ and the CCAA rankings.


MSVU Mystics vs. St. Thomas Tommies
ACAA WOMEN'S SOCCER
September 21 @ 2:00 p.m. AT
 

The defending ACAA champion MSVU Mystics (0-1-1) will try to rebound from a rough start when they host the St. Thomas Tommies (1-0-1), who are coming off a dominant 6-0 victory over Crandall. Both the Tommies and Mystics were featured in the first CCAA Ranking of the season, and a strong weekend of play could see one or both make a return.
