Brock teams that are still in the middle of their season:

Brock Men’s Lacrosse (6-1) – five games remaining:

  • Currently third in the CUFLA west division
  • Brock needs at least one win in final five games to clinch a top three spot in the west
  • If Brock wins all five games (four of five are against the bottom three teams in the west) and Western (7-1) and Guelph (7-1) lose at least one (Western and Guelph play each other twice) of their final four games, Brock gets first seed in their division.
  • Many other scenarios in regards to seeding still remain as Brock, Western and Guelph are at very similar records

Brock Women’s Lacrosse (6-3-1) – three games remaining:

  • Brock’s final three games are against York (2-8), Trent (10-0) and Toronto (9-3)
  • Brock can still catch Western for the first seed in the OUA west division: If Western finishes 1-1 in their final two games and Brock goes 3-0, the Badgers get the number one seed
  • One win in final three games gets Brock a top three OUA west spot
  • If Laurier wins final two games, Brock must win final two of three games to finish second
  • If Laurier goes 1-1, Brock must go at least 1-2 to finish second

Brock Men’s Rugby (3-3) – two games remaining:

  • Brock is currently tied with Trent for the final two playoff spots
  • If Brock wins their remaining two games, Trent loses at least one of two games and Western loses their final two games, Brock can possibly finish with the fourth seed in the OUA
  • Beyond that, many playoff scenarios exist between Brock, Trent, RMC and Laurier as all four teams fight for the final two playoff spots

  • Brock is currently six points back of the final playoff spot held by Windsor
  • Unlikely scenario: If Brock wins their final four games and the four teams Brock can still catch up to in the standings lose all their games, the Badgers can finish third in the OUA west division

  • If Laurier finishes with a record of 2-2, Brock must finish with a 3-0-1 record to finish tied with Laurier (one of the three wins must be a win over Laurier, as that brings in tiebreaker scenarios as both teams would be at 23 points)
