The inaugural Ontario Collegiate Rocket League season kicked off over the May 24th weekend with 12 of the 14 teams in action. Each of the 14 teams will play each other once over the course of the summer season, culminating in the live finals at the Durham College Esports Arena on August 24th.
Week one featured a close matchup between Queens and Carleton A Ravens, with Queens slightly edging the Ravens in a 3-2 series victory. Brock Esports also secured their first win of the season over UofT, as did Carleton B as they beat out Laurentian with a 3-1 victory. Algonquin, Ryerson and U of Ottawa also won their week one match, while Lambton vs. Waterloo has been rescheduled to a future time and date.
Week two will feature a few exciting matchups, including an inter-school competition between Carleton A and B, as well as what should be a close game between Laurentian and Wilfrid Laurier. The League will span 11 weeks with exciting rounds all the way until the finals.
