    OUA

    It's that time of year for the annual Coach of the Year awards on both the Men's and Women's sides ahead to the OUA finals this weekend. So let's take a look at the deserving winners courtesy of the OUA: Coach of the Year (East) – Dave McDowell, Queen’s Gaels Photo Credit Robin Kasem: https://oua.ca/news/2022/11/2/womens-soccer-gee-gees-provost-lions-chouhan-score-top-divisional-honours-for-their-squads.aspx With an OUA banner in tow and aspirations of a repeat intact, Dave McDowell takes home the 2022 OUA East Division coach of the year honour.

    There is a lot to be said about traditions, culture and practices. This past weekend, some of the usual suspects got through to the OUA Women's final four because they continue to live up to the established standards that they have set for themselves as programs. So let's take a look at what happened ahead of tonight's semi final games.

We can insert all the clichés you can probably want, "That's why you play the game." "The ball is round." "That's the way the ball bounces." "It just wasn't our day." In the end, it IS about results and the result. So ahead of this week's USPORTS national men's soccer rankings coming out on Tuesday, there is one thing that...

All but one of the home teams came away with results to advance to the OUA quarterfinals. Two games finishing in penalty kicks, one game the first time they have ever won a playoff game in school Varsity Men's history and one just trying to validate their National ranking. So let's see...

    Playoffs!??!? Playoffs you say!?!?! It's time the pretenders have been separated this year from the contenders and now it's time to get to work in the OUA. With plenty of fresh faces and The Men's game boasting 5 nationally ranked teams fighting for 2 spots to go to BC in a couple of weeks time, there are going to be some fantastic battles waged, old rivalries renewed and great battles fought for the OUA Championship this year. Here's Wednesday's line...

    The OUA start their playoffs Wednesday at four different locations for the opportunity to play on the weekend. This is the best time of the year as pleasantries get to be dispensed because it's time to get down and dirty. Talent does get you there, but sometimes it's all about who wants it more and a little bit of luck.

The RSEQ kicked off this past Monday on August 30 with a scoreless draw between the Bishop’s Gaiters and the Concordia Stingers at Concordia Stadium.   The OUA...
