To cap off the first day of action at the 2015 Football Canada Cup on Monday July 13, defending champion Ontario defeated host Quebec-white 26-3 at Cégep Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu’s Alphonse-Desjardins Stadium.

Ontario opened the scoring with a 34-yard Gabriel Siemieniec field goal attempt which missed wide left. Quebec conceded the single to put Ontario on the board 1-0. Quebec’s defence forced the Ontario field goal following a second down sack by Xavier Ouellet.

Quebec-white responded with a 31-yard field goal by Vincent Blanchard, pulling ahead 3-1.

Quebec’s lead was not safe for long as Ontario responded to begin the 2nd quarter as Siemieniec atoned for his earlier miss by connecting on a 43-yard field goal.

Ontario continued to roll as #CFC100 Jevante Stanley momentarily silenced the hometown crowd with an 83-yard touchdown run.

Stanley would add a second rushing touchdown on the day, this time from 33 yards out to increase Ontario’s lead 18-3.

A 3-yard #CFC100 Dominic Mandalfino rushing touchdown and a Gabriel Siemieniac rouge made the final score 26-3.

#CFC100 Team Ontario veteran Jevante Stanley had an outstanding day rushing for 262 yards on 13 carries and 2 touchdowns.

Ontario will now play Alberta in the first semi-final on Thursday July 16 at 4 p.m ET while Quebec-Blue faces Saskatchewan at 7 p.m.

Quotes:

“I thought we were pretty sloppy coming out of the gate. I was pleased with our performance in the second half. I thought the kids really concentrated, checked in and played a really solid second half.

On Jevante Stanley’s performance:

“Special player. He’s a pleasure to coach. He works extremely hard; he comes in every day and works. We definitely named him captain for that reason. He’s back again this year after he was dynamite last year. He’s a tremendous leader.”

On Ontario matchup against Alberta:

“I watched them this morning and they have a solid running game. We’re going to have to be better than we were the first half. I think if we execute and do what we do, we’ll be ok.”

-Glen Mills, Ontario Head Coach

“Today’s game was really tough, we got beat up front. We couldn’t counter their power play and Jevante with his cutbacks; he had a good game on us. What I liked from my team is the fight. We didn’t quit; we kept fighting until the end. That’s something we can keep working on. We have two more games to play and if we play the way we finished this game, we’ll be alright.”

On playing in front of the hometown crowd:

“It was fun. We play because we love playing football but it’s always fun to play in front of a big crowd. It’s fun for the kids and it’s nice to have the support that they got today. I’m sure they wish they had a better result but it was fun to see all the people out there encouraging us.”

-Fabrice Raymond, Quebec-white Head Coach

Team Quebec Blue defends home field, secures semi-final matcup with Team Saskatchewan

In game three of the 2015 Football Canada Cup host Quebec-blue defended their home confines at Cégep Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu’s Alphonse-Desjardins Stadium, defeating Nova Scotia 50-0.

Quebec-Blue’s defence made an early statement, capitalizing on Nova Scotia turnovers. On the game’s opening drive Kaylyn Smith St-Cyr stepped in front of Nova Scotia quarterback Monecko Clayton pass, returning it 21 yards to the Nova Scotia 21-yard line. A pair of Samuel Makwanda rushes culminated with a 3-yard touchdown to make the score 7-0.

Quebec’s defense stalled Nova Scotia’s next drive, forcing a second interception in as many series – this time by Alec Poirier at Quebec’s own 22 yard line. Quebec-blue took full advantage once again as quarterback Ezechiel Tieide connected with Bryan Owusu Bekoe on a 10-yard touchdown strike.

A 43-yard Kevin Mita jet sweep extended the Quebec advantage to 21.

Quebec opened the second quarter by forcing its third interception of the first half. The host province’s top team took full advantage once again as Tieide connected with Vincent Forbes-Mombleau on a 13-yard touchdown pass.

A 5-yard Alex Daigneault touchdown rush would push the Quebec lead to 35 heading into halftime.

A pair of rushing touchdowns from quarterback Chrisopher Cinq-Mars in between a rouge made the final score 50-0.

With the win, Quebec advanced to a semi-final berth on Thursday against Saskatchewan at 7 p.m. ET.

Quotes:

“I think it was a good football game, obviously we have a lot of things to work on. It wasn’t perfect, nothing is usually after your first game. We put a team together after one week but I think it was a step in the right direction and I’m looking forward to the next challenge.”

On being Quebec Head Coach as the host team:

“It’s an honour, whenever you get to play in your home province. For these kids it’s an amazing experience and we get to show off what Quebec is all about. It’s a process of what we’ve been trying to accomplish this year in our province and we’re looking forward to having everyone here and spending a great week of football in our province.”

On facing Saskatchewan:

“They’re a tough football team; they always are and I think they always will be. It’s a team that doesn’t give up, regardless of the score. So we’re going to have to play a full 48-minutes of football and hopefully come out with the W.”

-Brad Collinson, Quebec Head Coach

“First and foremost we played an extremely talented, well coached football team. That’s one of the better football teams that I’ve seen in my experience at the Canada Cup; hats off to Quebec. Our kids definitely came out and played competitively. They stuck in there and a lot of the time we were in position. Again it’s a good football team that we played so there’s a lot to be said on that end. Overall I’m proud of the effort of the guys and we’re going to continue to get better. We got out of the game relatively healthy so that’s a positive. [There were] a lot of good things to look back on and definitely a lot of corrections to be made. I’m looking forward to the next game and getting better as the tournament goes on.”

“Luke Oulton who’s kind of our punt team captain and starting slot receiver played his tail off. Our starting offensive line did a pretty good job and we ran the ball relatively well. Adam Bennett and Owen McGowan did a good job blocking it up and running with the football. Nico Clayton our quarterback is the backup at his high school so he doesn’t have a lot of experience. To come in there against that good of a football team and go some of the good things that he did. I’m proud of that kid and I think he’s got a bright future if he just continues to get better.”

-Steve Snyder, Nova Scotia Head Coach

Five opening half TDs propel Team Saskatchewan to semis

Photo credit: James Hajjar

Saskatchewan got on the board early and often, defeating New Brunswick 53-2 in game two of the 2015 Football Canada Cup at Cégep Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu’s Alphonse-Desjardins Stadium.

Saskatchewan got off to a hot start, scoring five opening half touchdowns. They opened the scoring on the game’s first play, rolling the opening kickoff into the end zone for a single point. Saskatchewan quarterback Mason Nyhus scored his first of three opening half scores on a 9-yard rushing touchdown.

After a Saskatchewan safety, Nyhus connected with David Solie on a 52-yard pass to put Sask up by 18. A pair of rushing touchdown by Brayden Wagg (from 3-yards) and a 51-yarder by Kyle Borsa put Sask up by 32. Nyhus recorded his third score of the half, connecting with Finley Easton on a 33-yard pass.

New Brunswick got on the board with a safety, tackling Saskatchewan’s punter in the end zone after an errant snap sailed over his head and into the end zone on third down.

To end the third quarter, Nyhus recorded his fourth touchdown of the day, finding Michael Scraper in the end zone with a 24-yard pass to widen the Sask lead 46-2.

Quarterback Ethan Newman added a 28-yard passing touchdown to Ben Getzlaf, making the final score 53-2.

Quotes:

“We were really happy with this win, we’ve been going against each other for the last ten days and we were really excited that we got this first game done with. We’re getting ready to move forward with our next opponent.”

On the advantage of having so many returning Canada Cup players:

“I really think that the experience of the kids being in the tournament last year really helps out with all the little things. Getting adjusted to the schedules and understanding you’re going to be on time for meal times and we really stress looking after all the little things. These guys are doing a great job of that so far and hopefully we continue to do that.”

-Kyle Stroeder, Saskatchewan Head Coach

“Our kids got better as the game went on and that’s what we’re looking for. It’s a three game tournament so it’s tough to have this first game on the books but we have a pretty resilient group of 40 kids.  We’re looking forward to game two and the next challenge that comes. Whether we lost by one or twenty; it doesn’t really matter. We’re still focused on the next challenge.”

On players that stood out:

“There’s a couple of guys on defence that I thought had great days. Dylan Cormier from Tantramar was exceptional. Bailey Feltmate was flying around. We’ve got a ton of talent on this team and it’s unfortunate that we couldn’t show that on the scoreboard. It’s a long week and we’re looking forward to the opportunity to showcase ourselves and continuing to improve.”

-Chris Hopkins, New Brunswick Head Coach

2015 Football Canada Cup Alberta vs Manitoba

Alberta defeats Manitoba in game 1, advancing to semi-finals on Thursday:

Photo credit: James Hajjar

In the opening game of the 2015 Football Canada from Cégep Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu’s Alphonse-Desjardins Stadium, Alberta defeated Manitoba 39-8, advancing to the semi-finals on Thursday. Alberta will play the winner of game 4 between Ontario and Quebec-White in Thursday’s semi-final at 4 p.m. ET.

Alberta took an early 19 point lead on a pair of touchdowns passes by #CFC100 quarterback Desmond Catellier. First the QB out of Calgary’s St. Francis connected with #CFC100 Landon Rose on a 37-yard pass followed by a 66-yard touchdown strike to Ben Pasiuk.

Manitoba replied late to close out the first half as quarterback Bryson McNeil found Liam Grace 38-yard touchdown strike. Manitoba successfully converted the 2-point conversion to make the score 19-8 at halftime.

Starting near Manitoba’s 25-yard line, Dan Pasiuk caught his second touchdown from Catellier to widen the Alberta lead 26-8.

Catellier who doubles as Alberta’s kicker added a pair field goals from 14 and 21 yards. A Matthew Lucyshyn pick-6 made the final score 39-8.

Quotes:

“I thought for our first game of the tournament, that is was a good game. It was good in the fact that we won the game, number two we did some really good things and number three we are going to get some stuff off of the film that we can correct because we did make some mistakes that we want to make sure we correct and prepare for our next game.”

On #CFC100 Desmond Catellier’s performance:

“Desmond is a second year guy for us. He was here last year [at the Canada Cup]. He stays calm and controlled and threw the ball extremely well. He reads well and makes some great plays that way. He missed a few but again as an opening game performance, we’re really happy. Not only is he an important part of our offense but in the kicking game, he’s got an unbelievable leg. We’re fortunate to have Des.”

– Bryan Brandford, Alberta Head Coach

“Obvious [the game’s result] was a disappointment. We’ve been in this position too many times in the past, finishing in that fifth spot. We came across a very strong fourth seeded team; it’s been a few years in a row of coming across that first game against a very talented football team. Again we just don’t quite get it done where we need to. I don’t think the scoreboard quite reflected the game today but we needed to be a bit better today.  I was very happy with what we did today, we just needed to finish a little stronger.”

On players that stood out despite the result:

“Shae Weekes was very explosive right off the top. He had a nice interception and came up very well up top on a few tackles for us from the safety position. He’s an all-around fantastic football player. Brody Williams at our MAC linebacker is great, Jalen Burley got player of the game and rightfully so. Liam Grace had a great play at the end of the first half. Josh Newransky kept getting things done, just running so fluidly. Bryce McNeil overcame a lot of adversity today dealing with the heat and humidity, trouble gripping that ball. I liked how he was able to respond.

– Dan Washnuk, Manitoba Head Coach
