Gee-Gees: Josh Sacobie "does not have a broken bone in his non-throwing arm and ... is expected to practise Tuesday," according to U of O sports information.
It's a spot of good news for the Gee-Gees, but there's a lot more oowies to be healed up before Saturday's home game vs. Laurier (1 p.m., The Score, SSN Canada). A healthy Sacobie ought to help them out get in fighting trim before the playoffs.
Remember, yes, they are 3-2 and first place is out of reach. This isn't the Little Sisters of the Poor — there's still a lot of talent on that team.
Across the river: Kingston's own Cory Greenwood, a linebacker, had 9½ tackles and a sack for the Concordia Stingers in their 21-12 loss to No. 1 Laval on Sunday
South of the border: The Rice Owls are in that post where Out of Left Field obsessively overthinks its choice of NCAA football team.
Rice starts Scott Mitchell of Manotick at left tackle and Montrealer Arnaud Gascon-Nadon, or AGN, as they call him. Gascon-Nadon, a freshman starter at defensive end, had an interception return for a touchdown in Rice's 77-20 win over North Texas, while Mitchell helped the Owls score touchdowns on their first six possessions.
Another bit of Canadians/NCAA news that might have to be followed up — Ottawa native John Delahunt, is apparently moving up on the depth chart for the No. 24 UConn Huskies, as Desmond Connor reported in the Hartford Courant:
"Well, Yianni (Apostolakos) will be No. 2 (behind Martin Bedard), and then we'll have John Delahunt. We'll get him some work this week too. But we've worked three tight ends. Yianni's been up practicing, and Martin, and John Delahunt would move in to get some practice reps now.Ravens: Carleton's 3-2 exhibition win over Lakehead has been covered off at The CIS Blog.
Again, not unlike the Queen's Football Gaels, it's not even Oct. 1. Lakehead is far from a fully formed team and Carleton had played the previous weekend. Alex Archibald and Jordan Wakefield combined to stop 34-of-36 shots on Saturday against the Thunderwolves. This might be a notebook column on this week's Ottawa Sun schools sports page.
(Lakehead also has the best-named player in hockey, amateur or pro, Kalvin Sagert.)
