Saint-Joseph could not stop the Scorpions’ venomous offence. Saint-François remains perfect, even without their all star RB, Kalenga Muganda! You need more than a QB to win playoff games, the Maraudeurs’ unyielding defence propels them to the big dance.

École Sec. Curé-Antoine-Labelle Loups (5-3) vs Collège Notre-Dame Cactus (7-1) This is a game of inches and the last meeting between these two teams was decided by a foot, so was this one. The Curé-Antoine-Labelle offensive line was able to minimize the pressure from the second best defence in the division, and provide QB Xavier Tremblay the opportunity to shine. Tremblay completed 17 out of 28 for 175 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 interception, rushed for 40 yards including 2 important majors, and with the help of RB Anthony Renault, who rushed for 111 yards on 15 carries, moved the offence close enough for kicker Alexandre El-Dib to punch in the winning points with 2 field goal transformations on 2 attempts. Defensively, the Loups were not able to keep RB Théodore Seaborn under constraints, but they accumulated 4 sacks and 1 interception, limiting QB Mitchell Parr and the Cactus offence to 22 points. The power back, Seaborn, gained 230 yards on 32 carries and moved the chains, but his 2 touchdowns were not enough. The standout on defence for Curé-Antoine-Labelle was Marc-Arthur Jérôme with 1 tackle, 1 for loss and 3 QB takedowns. The Loups defeat their cross river rivals and head to the championship with this 27-22 victory.

Séminaire Saint-François LB/RB #34 Étienne Amiot

École Secondaire Triolet Harfangs (4-4) vs Séminaire Saint-François Blizzard (8-0) The Séminaire Saint François Blizzard is still on course to a perfect season. The Triolet’s QB/RB Lukas Boulanger did everything he could, completing 17 out of 35 for 243 yards, rushed for 122, but could not penetrate the Blizzard end zone. The Saint-François defence registered 2 sacks and a pick to contain the Harfangs offence and limit them to a mere touchdown, even though their stud LB, Étienne Amiot, was needed on the other side of the ball, in absence of RB Kalenga Muganda. Amiot scored 2 passing TD’s and 3 others on the ground, while rushing for 178 yards. The Saint-François pivot, Raphael Latulippe, completed 10 out of 17 for 292 yards and 3 majors to procure a second straight participation to the championship game with a dominating victory of 42-8 over the semifinalist Harfangs. The undefeated and unchallenged Saint-François team will travel to Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu next Sunday, to face the Curé-Antoine-Labelle Loups, who they butchered in week 1.

Séminaire Saint-Joseph Vert et Or (5-3) vs É. Sec. Armand-Corbeil Scorpions (7-1) The Scorpions got the best of the Vert et Or again with a thundering ground attack. Armand-Corbeil’s power backs, Danté Tortoricci, who racked up 186 yards on 21 carries with 2 touchdowns, and Mathieu Vachon, who piled up 123 yards on 15 carries, flattened the number 2 defence. While their multi purpose QB, Justin Leduc, passed for 189 yards and 3 touchdowns, secured their presence to the Bol D’Or. The Vert et Or slasher, QB Charles Cossette, was limited by the Scorpions’ defence with only 13 out of 27 completions for 259 yards and a mere 31 yards rushing to end this one with a 45-23 score.

Collège de Lévis Commandeurs (5-3) vs Collège Laval Maraudeurs (8-0) The climb to maintain an undefeated season started with a steep hill for the Maraudeurs. Lévis scored first and the score was 21-12 at the half for the Collège Laval. Having reached the summit, the third quarter was a downhill domination by the Maraudeurs who clinched their way to a second Bol D’Or appearance 2 years in a row with a remarkable 42-12 lead, by the fourth quarter. The Maraudeurs pivot, Jonathan Sénécal had an average day, he completed only 13 out of 22 for 213 and 2 touchdowns, but the RB committee, 9 different ball carriers, amassed a total of 263 yards and 5 touchdowns to help Sénécal, overcome the Commandeurs’ defence, with a 49-26 conclusion. The Commandeurs’ bomb launcher, QB Tristan Blais, was kept to a minimal 186 yards, 11 completions out of 33, 2 touchdowns and 2 picks by DB Marc-Antoine Fradet, which one was at the beginning of the third quarter when a score was desperately needed. Blais did rush for 252 yards on 20 carries and scored a rushing TD, but his efforts were non conclusive, due to the relentless Maraudeurs defence. The path to a perfect season continues and the Commandeurs will face the Scorpions next week, in their quest for a second championship.
