The lens with some range to it should win this round.

I have a t5i and carry 3 lenses. The stock one something 20 to 55mm which I leave attached most of the time and the 40mm for indoor candid shots due to how fast it is and often doesn't need more light. and a big zoom from 55 to 250mm for long shots.

The f/2 100mm is the brighter lens and will perform better for indoor sports.
It should let you get some close-ups of individual players.
But keep the other lens handy for those wide-angle over-all shots at 17mm.
