Hockey: The tide is Rye

There's an OUA hockey score that hasn't been seen in god knows when:

Ryerson 5, Western 2.

That is six wins on the season for the Rams and coach Graham Wise, the most they've had in some time. It might not sound like much, but Ryerson won only four games over the past three years (twice against Queen's, once each vs. Ottawa and RMC), so yes, this is big.

It's one thing for the Carleton Ravens to be at .500 and fighting for a playoff spot in their first full-fledged season (the Ravens won 3-2 at Guelph last night), but their coach Fred Parker, not to say he isn't a coach of the year candidate, had the advantage of selling players on a fresh start and a new arena smack-dab in the middle of campus. Wise has the makings of a competitive team at a school that has years of dubious baggage and where the team plays at an arena miles off campus (the U of T's arena is actually closer).
