Settings Recomendations for Soccer with 7D

I have just received my new 7D and I can't wait to get out with it. It is an upgrade from my much loved 50D which I wore out, had rebuilt, and wore out again. I shot a ton of night soccer matches with it using a 70-200L in dim high school stadia. I obtained results that I was quite satisfied with at F2.8, ISO 1600, and AI SERVO mode. I plan to shoot some daytime college matches this fall and I would like to know what settings are recommended for day soccer with the 7D. I will be shooting with the same 70-200L, and have a monopod and the 1.4x extender. This is Division 3 soccer, so I will be able to get close to the action. I have a lot of experience with the 50D, but have not read the 7D manual yet. I would appreciate any recommendations on settings. I am out of practice so I intend to shoot some local club matches over labor day weekend just to get back in the swing of things.
