CÉGEP10 (coll. div. 1) game RECAP (3): Faucons continue to impress with another huge win; CNDF heading in the right direction with Naud under centre

Limoilou Titans v.s Notre-Dame-de-Foy
CNDF bounced back off the canvas this week with a convincing 38-10 win over Limoilou, which now places them both in a traffic jam at 2-2 tied for third in the division.

The story is this one was Alexandre Naud taking over full time under centre, and he passed the smell test with flying colours finishing 19/22 for 329 yards with one touchdown and one interception. CFC60 Vincent Forbes-Mombleau was his usual self catching seven passes for 196 and the lone touchdown pass from Naud, which now places him third in the league with 358 yards on the season, while Douglas Surf Biron caught a touchdown pass from Raphael Latulippe to go along with 97 yards receiving. Guillaume Vermette and Grégoire Martin also added some points in the run game with a touchdown each, and Cédric Forbes-Mombleau had a big game on defence with six tackles and a sack.

The Titans didn’t really struggle to move the ball, but they weren’t able to turn those yards into any material possessions while CNDF racked up the score. Olivier Bamrounsavath finished 20/33 with 195 yards while Pierre Morin, Julien Desrochers and Tristan Rivard combined for 10 catches for 123 yards. Phillippe Genest and Pier-Olivier Cadoret both contributed heavily to the running game as usual with 114 yards between them, but it wasn’t effective enough to get the job done.


Garneau Élans v.s Champlain-Lennoxville Cougars
After a shutout performance a week ago, Champlain continued their undefeated season with a 41-14 victory over Garneau.

Lukas Boulanger put together his best game of the year with 166 yards and two touchdowns through the air, which he then complimented with his rushing abilities gaining 91 yards on nine carries with a pair of majors. Boulanger currently sits eighth in passing yards across the league, but his main source of success has been ball security, which he once again achieved versus Garneau. It was a big day for plenty of guys in the receiving corps, but one guy who stood out was Dhandre Weekes who caught three passes for 33 yards with a touchdown, and Phillip Dupont was another key target with four catches for 52 yards. CFC60 Thomas Trottier caught the other touchdown pass from Boulanger, and Félix Lussier-Roy had his fair share of touches out of the backfield finishing with 102 yards on 16 carries. Leading the way on defence was Sean Côté who came up with five tackles and an interception, along with Félix Petit, who also snagged an interception.

Not much was going right in the rushing game for Garneau despite Tristan Blais finding his way to the end zone, but Joé Hudon did find some success through the air connection with Mathieu Hudon, who led the team with five catches for 111 yards and a touchdown. Geoffrey Cantin Arku also had a noteworthy game on defence with seven tackles and one sack.

Vanier Cheetahs v.s Lévis-Lauzon Faucons
In what was the best matchup of the weekend, Lévis-Lauzon once again used their offensive firepower to push Vanier aside for a 58-30 win.

Really what are you suppose to do when CFC60 Joanik Masse is having an “off” day with just 171 yards and four touchdowns, then on top of that you’ve got quarterback Adrien Guay running wild for 146 yards on just 13 attempts with another touchdown. Then you throw in guys like Louis-Pierre Nappert who popped off this week with a 62 yard touchdown reception plus 57 yards on five carries, and Marc-Olivier Boucher who took two passes for 46 yards and a major – all of a sudden you start to believe this Faucons offence may be able to carry them deep into the playoffs. Their defence may not have limited the Cheetahs as much as they wanted to, but one guy who put in an insane day at the office was Alexandre Deblois who had four sacks, and Gabriel Veillieux also made some game changing plays with a pair of interceptions.

Vanier fought through the adversity with Daniel Sananes completing 16 passes for 241 yards and two touchdowns, but their defence wasn’t able to hold. Ryth-Jean Giraud and CFC60 Samuel Emilus caught the touchdowns from Sananes while Tshitenge Tshisthi Bukasa led the team with six catches for 66 yards, and along the ground CFC60 Patrick Charles was effective carrying the ball 10 times for 55 yards with a touchdown. Darnel Jarrett added another 51 yards and six points out of the backfield, and on defence Claude-Adler Joseph did his best to step up with 5.5 tackles, an interception and a sack.

André-Grasset Phénix v.s Saint-Jean Géants
Saint-Jean hung around dropping 27 points against a good defence, but they simply couldn’t keep up with the final score reading 59-27 in Grasset’s favour.

Hopefully everybody is used to this by now, but once again Jonathan Sénécal lit it up completing 21 passes for 429 yards with five touchdown, and yes, once again, CFC60 Kevin Mitale and CFC60 François Rocheleau were the leading actors in the Grasset’s weekly showcase. Mitale was a threat whenever he touched the ball with six catches for 176 yard and four touchdowns, while Rocheleau did his best to keep up yardage wise with a team high nine catches for 156 yards. The run game was non-existent minus a touchdown by CFC60 Samuel Makwanda, but there isn’t much need to waste time running when you can chew up yards at will through the air.

Étienne Doyon had a big game for Saint-Jean rushing for 115 yards and two touchdown, while Edouard Arsenault took on another heavy workload with 11 receptions for 150 yards, but it’s tough to keep up with a team like Grasset.

Montmorency Nomades v.s Vieux Montréal Spartiates
Montmorency found plenty of room to roam on offence, but unfortunately so did Vieux Montréal, which ultimately led to a much needed 39-17 victory for the Spartiates.

Arnaud Desjardins led the way with 318 yards and three touchdowns, which he then matched with 74 yards with two touchdowns along the ground, which was just another sign of the vast improvement Desjardins has been showing week to week. He had some assistance with Nicolas Dionne on the receiving end of two of those touchdowns and leading the team with six catches for 105 yards, while Jean-Sébastien Chamberland covered a game high 136 yards on just four receptions with a touchdown. Théodore Seaborn also continued to grow as a key player in the Spartiates offensive gameplan finishing with 18 carries for 75 yards, and Jean Clifford Dazouloute added in 62 yards on 13 carries.

Benjamin Pelletier did what he could for the Nomades with 291 yards and a touchdown from under centre, plus Jérémy Martinet also completed five passes for 103 yards with a touchdown, but still they couldn’t get the losing monkey off their back. CFC60 Frédérick Antoine put together a great display with seven catches for 124 yards along with a major, while Mathieu Renault put in another productive week finishing with 95 yards and a touchdown.
