CIS wrap: Murphy, Guelph split opening weekend


Reigning CIS Player of the Year Robbie Murphy is just two games into the OUA regular season, but he’s off his better-than-a-goal-per-game pace that he set in 2011. Murphy, who scored 16 times in 14 conference games last season and became the first-ever Gryphon to be named male CIS player of the year, scored on opening day as Guelph defeated the Waterloo Warriors by a 3-0 count. Tim Flynn opened the scoring, then took the corner that Murphy converted to give the Gryphons a 2-0 lead. Jared Agyemang finished the rout. But, on Sunday, Guelph’s second game of the weekend, the Gryphons, expected to be one of the offensive powers in CIS this season, was held scoreless by the Laurier Golden Hawks. The 2-0 result, on goals from Dani Patros and Adam Zrebiec, was one of the big stunners of the opening weekend. U of T feels the Blues: Rab Bruce-Lockhart is the new goalkeeper at the University of Toronto, and he has some awfully big gloves to fill. John Smits, who is enjoying a solid pro rookie campaign with FC Edmonton of the NASL, left behind some awfully big gloves to fill with the Varsity Blues. Bruce-Lockhart, who has played with the Victoria Highlanders of the PDL, is the new sheriff in town, and his debut wasn’t what he or the U of T had hoped for. Carleton began a two-game sweep of Toronto schools (which also included a scalp of Ryerson) with a 3-1 win over the Blues. Andrew Latty’s two goals paced a three-marker second half for the Ravens. Only Carleton and York made it through the opening weekend with six points banked in the standings. WOMEN’S SOCCER RANKINGS: 1. Queen’s (1-0-0) / 39 points / (-) 2. Montreal (0-0-0) / 37 / (-) 3.
