Sunday, Oct. 23

Bishop’s (0), Laval (44)

With files from: Rouge et Or

The goal was to remain intractable defensively. The Rouge et Or can claim to have succeeded Sunday as those who blanked the Bishop’s Gaiters by a score of 44-0 at TELUS-Université Laval Stadium.

The victory, a 150th career for Laval’s Glen Constantin head coach, was acquired in difficult conditions of wind and rain. Beyond winning, the points on the board are also essential for Laval, who are in a fight to the finish with the Carabins for first place in the regular season RSEQ. If both teams win their final game next week, the team with the fewest points allowed in, get home advantage for all the playoffs.

Following Sunday’s games, Laval subtracted five points from the Carabins, who won 30-5 on Sherbrooke. Montreal still has a short priority, giving 72 points this year, against 77 for Laval.

Constantine, however, refused to stop the points conceded to the opponent. “That’s what we wanted, but we wanted to manage our game especially on the three phases of the game. In general, this is a great team win. The key for us was to win the match and continue to progress. our games were well executed, after a good training week, ” he stated.

Laval’s coach also wanted to give credit to his former student-athletes and fellow coaches, who helped him to reach the 150 wins plateau. “This is a contribution of many. I’m very proud, but it is the work of many coaches and players. I’m very grateful.

The Rouge et Or completely dominated the Gaiters, totalling 590 yards against just 49 for Bishop’s. Visitors to the Eastern Townships were only successful first six downs, while Laval has obtained 29.

In terms of individual statistics, quarterback Hugo Richard did well with 21 of his 25 completions for 256 yards and three touchdowns on the ground.

Running back Sébastien Tight also had a strong game with 185 yards per run and a touchdown. He also caught a pass for 19 yards. The number 27 has earned 10 of 29 first tests of his.

“It’s always nice when our playing time increases, but it does not change my preparation,” humbly said one who had his best game since he wears the uniform of red and gold.

After a single on a failed kick with the wind in the face, the Laval attack was part of the score on the next series. Rouge et Or put a little more than two minutes to enter the red zone, with a floating pass by Hugo Richard Dufour towards Antony. It was 8-0, score that would remain intact until the end of the first quarter.

Laval took advantage of a fumble by the Gaiters deep in their territory in the middle of the second quarter. Three plays later, Richard was himself valuable in the end zone for his seventh major of the season was 15-0 in favour of the Reds. Followed a safety granted by Bishop’s who brought the score to 17-0.

Bishop’s then threatened, approaching to the Laval 10 yard line. But the defense was holding up, forcing them to retreat to the Gaiters 20. Field goal attempt of 27 yards was blocked by Marc-Antoine Varin, and the threat was stifled. Both teams entered the locker room with a score of 17-0.

Laval came back from halftime at full strength. Only four games were enough to cross the field and added a touchdown, that of Sébastien Tight on a 16-yard run.

On the next possession, Richard and his band took up the ball in their line 26. The result was the same as the previous series, while Laval crossed 84 yards on seven discounts, which passes the pivot for Antony Auclair touchdown. It was 31-0 after three.

The Gaiters gave another safety touch to the Reds. Then Richard completed his third touchdown of the day, this time to Mark Antony Pivin. The recovery punt resulted in the end zone for a single, and the score was 41-0.

Dominic Lévesque added a field goal of 28 yards late in the game.

The last part of the regular season in 2016 will be held in Sherbrooke on Saturday, October 29. The Rouge et Or will take on Vert & Or, which will absolutely take it to the playoffs.

Laval, for their part, are already assured of one of the two semifinals RSEQ November 5 at 14h, against an opponent to be determined. Tickets for this series duel are already on sale at the ticket Rouge et Or at 418 656-FOOT or online on the website of Réservatech.

Sherbrooke (5), Montreal (30)

With files from: Carabins de l’Université de Montréal

The Carabins won a decisive victory of 30-5 against the Sherbrooke Vert & Or Sunday afternoon in front of 4687 spectators at CEPSUM. If the offense managed to score at the appropriate times, it is the defense that has been the key element in the game against Sherbrooke forcing them to commit six turnovers.

With the win, the Blues are guaranteed to finish in the top two positions in Quebec and get home field advantage. They still occupy the first level and have now awarded five points below the Laval Rouge et Or, winners of the Bishop’s Gaiters 44-0 by this afternoon. Remember that in case of identical record between Montreal and Laval, the team with the fewest regular season points will outperform the other in the standings.

Evolving under blustery conditions of gusts to 55 km/h, the Blues managed to win the battle of field position, a key element in a match that. Head coach, Danny Maciocia, was visibly pleased with the final result. “We found the way to victory, it feels good. a short field we gave our offense so that it can work well. We converted the two interceptions touched, so it helped us out.

Playing in such bad conditions, both teams struggled to perform aerial games long distance. The attacks became predictable in the first quarter of the game, and the spectators at CEPSUM were treated to a show: three for Sherbrooke, four to Montreal. The game opened up somewhat during the second period and the Blues were the first to open the scoring. Régis Cibasu (Administration, HEC Montreal) dragged a part of the opposing party on his back during an aerial gain of 26 yards and Samuel Caron (Civil Engineering, Polytechnic) found William Paquet (Industrial Relations) in the left flank for a touchdown of 11 yards.

After a turnaround that resulted in a kick of 16 yards Mathieu Hébert of Laval, the Carabins got the ball in the final minute of the first half and Caron completed four passes for 57 yards en route to the touched Louis-Mathieu Normandin (Administration, HEC Montreal) on seven yards. The Carabins headed into the locker room with a lead of 10 points on the scoreboard.

The second half of the meeting was the matter of the Montreal defense. Leading by eight after offering a safety touch, Samuel Drapeau (Management, HEC Montreal) intercepted the pass to Jean-Christophe Bourque-St-Hilaire and shot straight to the end zone. 54 yards away, defensive back has been stopped, which allowed Gabriel Parent (Homeland Security) to include the subsequently hit with a five-yard run. In the next sequence, and virtually the same spot on the field, Allan Lambert (Film Studies) crossed the passes of the opposing quarter then brought the ball up the line from seven yards of Sherbrooke. Sean Thomas Erlington (Health and Physical Education) completed the effort with the major seven yards. The Carabin’s defense continued their work of domination in the fourth quarter. The Sherbrooke attack never found a way to break through the defensive front Carabins, is admitting defeat without even counting one hit. The Blues have especially made five sacks and three interceptions.

The kicker Felix Menard-Brière (Landscape Architecture) had a meeting. In addition to adding a point to the meter on a single during the fourth quarter, the Blues specialist made 12 kicks (five within 20 yards of the opposing area) for a convincing average of 41 yards per punt, which one of 93 yards that forced the Green and Gold to revive its offensive deep in his zone.

The Blues have amassed 260 rushing yards, including 203 by Parent (126) and Thomas Erlington (77), while Junior Luke (Addiction Prevention and Rehabilitation) collected a sack and an interception in another impressive.

“We did a great job in defense, Luke said. We had to contain the quarterback because he’s very good when it moves outside its protective pouch. We have content, in addition to creating turnovers. We played 60 minutes and it paid off.

Samuel Caron completed his work day with 16 completions in 27 attempts for gains of 150 yards and two touchdowns. He has not been intercepted. His vis-à-vis Bourque St-Hilaire has meanwhile completed 12 passes of 28 for 143 yards.

The next meeting of the Blues, the last of this 2016 campaign, will take the side of Percival Molson Stadium and oppose the Carabins to the McGill Redmen. The Carabins then begin the playoffs the following weekend with the holding of the provincial semi-final at CEPSUM on Saturday November 5 at 14h.

Saskatchewan (38), Calgary (35)

Source: Ben Matchett, Dinos Assistant AD (Communications)

The Saskatchewan Huskies took full advantage of their opportunities Saturday afternoon, handing the fourth-ranked Calgary Dinos their first on-field regular season home loss in more than six years with a 38-35 triumph at McMahon Stadium.

The loss snaps a nine-game win streak for the Dinos over Saskatchewan and was the first regular season defeat at home since the first game of the 2010 season, notwithstanding a forfeit in early 2014. The loss drops the Dinos to 5-2 on the year with one game to play, while Saskatchewan improves to 4-3, clinching a playoff spot.

Kyle Siemens completed 25 of 38 passes for 359 yards and two touchdowns for the Huskies in a back-and-forth game that got more interesting than it maybe should have been down the stretch.

On the final play of the third quarter, Siemens ran in a one-yard touchdown following a 62-yard passing play to Chad Braun on which the Dinos were unable to overcome sloppy tackling – a theme to the contest. A roughing the passer was tacked on – orange nylon being another theme – to set up the ball on the one-yard line, and Siemens’ TD gave Saskatchewan the lead at 23-22.

Through the next 10 minutes, the Huskies found the end zone twice more thanks to a nine-play, 78-yard drive capped off by Tyler Chow’s five-yard run, with Chow scoring a one-yard TD on Saskatchewan’s next possession. That TD, however, was a field goal until an unnecessary roughness penalty on Calgary with Sean Stenger out to split the uprights turned third down into first and Chow waltzed in.

That four-point swing would come back to hurt the Dinos as the game turned wild in the final three minutes. After a two-and-out, a Calgary punt was mishandled by Braun and recovered by Denzel Radford, setting up a one-yard toss from Adam Sinagra to Anthony Anderson to pull the Dinos closer. The two-point convert attempt failed, making it 38-28 with two minutes to play.

After the Huskies recovered the onside kick, Siemens fumbled the snap on a routine third-and-inches play, and Calgary’s Nick Statz picked up the loose ball and ran it back 60 yards for another major to bring the Dinos within three at 38-35 – but again, Saskatchewan recovered the onside kick attempt to seal the victory.

All told, Calgary was flagged 16 times for 133 yards in the contest, while the Huskies picked up just seven penalties for 59 yards – clearly a difference in the ball game.

“Our discipline was poor, our execution was off, and they were able to turn some short passes into long plays,” said Calgary head coach Wayne Harris after the loss. “Our tackling wasn’t up to par today, and our defence didn’t play at the standard they’re accustomed to today. You need to have that going into the playoffs – that’s the strength of our team, and we didn’t get it done today.”

Case in point for Calgary was Yol Piok’s touchdown late in the opening half. Siemens found Piok just across the Saskatchewan 50-yard line, and the receiver pinballed off a couple Dinos defenders who couldn’t wrap him up and took off downfield. Three Dinos converged on him inside the 10, and Piok managed to carry all three of them into the end zone for a spectacular 65-yard touchdown.
Saskatchewan’s other score came courtesy of a 16-yard pass by Siemens to Colton Klassen early in the first quarter. Sean Stenger added a trio of singles on the day.

Calgary got additional scores from Sinagra (14 yards) and Josiah Joseph (one yard) on the ground, with Niko DiFonte adding a missed field goal single late in the third quarter.
In total, Saskatchewan out-gained the Dinos by a 446-317 margin. For Calgary, rookie quarterback Sinagra – playing for the injured Jimmy Underdahl – completed 21 of 35 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns. One of those, a 15-yard strike that gave Calgary its first lead in the second quarter – went to Brendon Thera-Plamondon, who was making his first appearance in the lineup of the season. Thera-Plamondon finished as the team’s leading receiver with four catches for 55 yards.

Bryce Harper managed 48 yards on 17 carries for Calgary with Sinagra not far behind with 44 rushing yards. Chow led the way for the Huskies, picking up 84 yards on 16 carries.

Calgary’s Hunter Turnbull led all tacklers with eight, followed by Micah Teitz with seven solos and two assisted. Jacob Solie and Ben Whiting paced the Huskies defensively with six and 4.5, respectively.

With one week of Canada West play left, the playoff scenario remains murky. For Calgary, a win at UBC would clinch at least second place, while a loss coupled with a Saskatchewan win would, in all likelihood, send the Dinos to Saskatoon for the first round of the playoffs. It all gets underway Friday night when the Huskies host Alberta on Shaw TV (7 p.m. MT), followed by a pair of critical games Saturday as Regina heads to Manitoba (8 p.m. CT) and Calgary faces UBC in Vancouver (5 p.m. PT / 6 p.m. MT).

Manitoba (67), Alberta (59)

Source: Matt Gutsch, Golden Bears and Pandas Athletics

Septuplet overtime finish? Check. Longest football game in Canada West football history? Done. A quarterback catching a two-point convert in an overtime session? Got it. More points scored in overtime than in regulation time? Of course. Second highest scoring game in conference history, but a defensive play to seal the win? Naturally. You could confidently argue that the Oct. 22nd afternoon tilt between the one-win University of Alberta Golden Bears and the two-win Manitoba Bisons had it all, and in fact was one of the most exciting games of the Canada West football season. The only story line missing? A win for the home team in the final home game of the season, as the Bears dropped a thrilling and heartbreaking 67-59 seven OT loss to the Bisons at Foote Field.

Despite all the offensive fireworks, it was rookie defensive back Tanner Hamade who picked the perfect moment to be the unlikely hero as the Bisons defender stepped in front of a Ben Kopczynski pass at the Manitoba 2-yard line in the seventh OT to end the offensive outpouring. By the time the Abbotsford, B.C. native recorded his first INT of the season, the teams had combined for 1,334 yards of offence and 126 points, including 69 points in the seven overtime sessions. The receiver he was covering? None other than Alberta’s Tylor Henry, who had banked a Canada West record 19 catches for 298 yards to that point, which was just five yards shy of breaking the conference single game receiving yards record.

It was a wildly unpredictable finish to a wildly unpredictable game played between two teams on the outside of the Canada West playoff picture. The loss, in fact, officially eliminated the Golden Bears from post-season contention, as they drop to a 1-6 record. Manitoba, meanwhile, entered the contest with a 2-4 record, and in second last. While the win propels them to 3-4, and back into the mix for the final playoff position, they are now tied with the UBC Thunderbirds for the fourth spot in the standings with one game remaining. Should Manitoba and UBC finish with identical records (3-5 or 4-4), UBC owns the head-to-head tie break based on UBC’s 53-50 win over Manitoba this season in the lone meeting between the two.

However, with the Saskatchewan Huskies win over Calgary on Saturday afternoon, the Huskies, Bisons and Birds could all end up at 4-4 to end the season, and if all three teams finish 4-4, Manitoba and Saskatchewan will advance to the playoffs based on the tie-breakers.

The Bisons will conclude the regular season next weekend at home to the first place Regina Rams, while the Golden Bears will finish their season on the road at Saskatchewan.

On Saturday at Foote Field, however, the teams combined for amazing afternoon of football. After scoring 28 points each in regulation time, the Bears and Bisons put an absolute aerial show, matching each other play for play. Each team scored a converted TD in the first OT; a field goal in the second; a converted touchdown in the third OT; a two-point converted touchdown each in the fourth overtime, with Manitoba quarterback Theo Deezar catching the successful two-point convert on a gadget play, and then consecutive field goals by each team to make the score 59-59. On Manitoba’s next possession, Deezar rushed on back-to-back plays, for a total of 14 yards, to position the Bisons at the 6-yard line. From there Deezar hit Riley Harrison for the go-ahead score, and then found Trystan Dyce in the endzone for the 2-point convert and a 67-59 lead.

Kopczynski, who completed 30 of 53 passes for 460 yards and three touchdowns to that point, had been brilliant for the Bears all game. He and Henry were a lethal combo, but when they tried to connect on what would have been Henry’s 20th catch of the game, and record breaking receiving yards, Hamade stepped in front of the Kopczynski’s pass attempt at the 2-yard line to end the game, and preserve the win.

Alberta’s sophomore quarterback also rushed 13 times for 67 yards and two touchdowns, both goal line efforts, while fourth-year runningback Ed Ilnicki performed yeoman’s work once again, hauling the rock 21 times for 95 yards. He also found his first rushing TD of the season, and now has an even 700 yards on the ground this season, second most in the conference.

Receivers Adam Zajdel and Rocky Borrelli also scored touchdowns for the Bears, both in overtime.
Deezar had a wild night as well, completing 34 of 56 passes for 393 yards and five touchdown passes. The veteran gunslinger was picked off twice, but did rush eight times for 54 yards, including those crucial 14-yards in the seventh OT to sustain the game winning drive.

His main target was Harrison, who finished with 11 grabs and 91 yards, as well as two TDs. Jesse Walker also picked up a receiving TD, to go along with eight receptions and 94 yards. Runningback Alex Christie churned out 183 rush yards on the day, as well as one TD. Cam Fox also scored a pair of TDs for the visitors, one rushing and one receiving TD, while Mike Thompson had one catch on the day, a 44-yard touchdown grab in the second quarter.

Defensively, Manitoba was led by Houston Rennie and his team leading eight tackles and three pass break-ups. Derek Dufault also had eight tackles in the win, while Jayden McKoy had 7.5 tackles and a fumble recovery.

Tak Landry led the Alberta defensive effort, making a game high 11 tackles, while fifth-years Tom Tsoumpas and Brandon Foster added 10.5 and eight tackles respectively. Both linebackers were playing in their final career home games as well, and Tsoumpas made it memorable, also recording an interception. Safety Ryan Migadel recorded Alberta’s other INT on the day, while also making seven tackles.

The Golden Bears will play their final game of the 2016 season on Friday, October 28 at the University of Saskatchewan. Manitoba, meanwhile, will host conference leading Regina on Saturday at 8:00 p.m. CDT.

McGill (21), Concordia (8)

Source: Earl Zukerman, McGill Sports Info Office

Rookie kicker Findlay Brown of Winnipeg, Man., made four field goals and tallied 13 points as McGill coasted to a 21-8 road victory at Concordia on a rain-soaked afternoon of RSEQ football, Saturday.

The result snapped Concordia’s five-game win streak over the Redmen and the eight points scored was their lowest offensive output against McGill since a 10-6 loss in the 2002 Dunsmore Cup game.

McGill, which improved to 4-3, moved into the driver’s seat for a probable playoff berth with one week remaining on their schedule. It is the most victories by a McGill squad since the 2004 season when they posted a 4-4 fourth-place finish.

Despite a constant drizzle, the 18-year-old Brown nailed all four of his field-goal attempts, connecting from distances of 20, 20, 19 and 36, respectively. A measure of consistency, the 5-foot-10, 175-pound management freshman averaged 37.8 yards on nine punts and 45.0 on a pair of kickoffs. Brown also converted quarterback Frederic Paquette-Perrault‘s one-yard touchdown plunge that put the Redmen ahead 10-0 on the first play of the second quarter, capping a 12-play, 109-yard scoring drive. Brown has been successful on 14 of 16 field-goal attempts this season and is ranked third in the conference scoring race with an average of 9.1 points per game.

Paquette-Perrault directed an offence that generated 19 first downs and 376 yards, compared to 16 and 279, respectively, by Concordia. The 6-foot-2, 212-pound rookie completed 15 of 25 passes for 177 yards and no interceptions for the second straight outing. He rushed four times for 17 yards.and one TD.

McGill also dominated the ground game with 211 yards, compared to only 43 for the Stingers. Leading the way was running back Nicolas Khandar, who amassed a career-high 152 rushing yards on 20 carries.

The game featured 30 penalties for 229 penalty yards of real estate, including 149 charged against the Redmen.

McGill led 3-0 after the opening quarter, 18-0 at halftime and 18-1 after three.

Ahead 21-1 with less than a minute remaining in the game, the Redmen defence finally wilted, as Concordia scored their only TD on a 34-yard bomb from Trenton Miller to Justin Julien. In the end, the Stingers lost by 13 points after winning the first meeting of the season by 14 points, so they hold the tie-breaker needed on point-differential with McGill, should the teams end up tied in the standings

Miller was 18-for-40 passing, for 244 yards, one TD and an interception.His favourite target was Julien, who collected a game-high 96 yards on four receptions.

Concordia (3-4) now faces a must-win game at Bishop’s (1-5) to close out the season on Oct. 29. The scenario will be come a little less foggy after the Sherbrooke-Montreal and Bishop’s Laval matchups this Sunday. Barring any upsets over the final week of play, Sherbrooke (3-3) could catch McGill for the final playoff spot if they surprise Montreal or Laval next week. If the Vert & Or pull off a win in one of those mismatches, then the Redmen would need to win their Homecoming Game against the division-leading Carabins (5-1) on Oct. 29. Sherbrooke could also beat out Concordia if the Stingers lose their final game at last-place Bishop’s (1-6).

REDMEN RAP: Rookie DB Benjamin Carre spearheaded a voracious McGill defence with 6.5 tackles, including two for loss and a quarterback sack… Strong-side LB Antoine Mongeau and weak-side LB Maxime Rouyer were each credited with six total tackles… Also receiving credit for a sack was DL Ousmane Guindo… Rookie DB Vincent Dethier registered his second interception of the season.. The last time the Redmen made the playoffs, was in 2012 with a 3-6 record…. Mcgill is now 38-41 in 79 lifetime meetings with the Stingers.

Carleton (43), Waterloo (15)

Source: Carleton Ravens

The Ravens are headed to playoffs as the fourth ranked seed after defeating the Waterloo Warriors, 43-15, in the final regular season game.

“We were hoping at this point we would be in the conversation for the Yates Cup, but almost more importantly, we were hoping to get that first playoff game on campus,” said head coach Steve Sumarah about the team’s progress. “It shows that we really have come a long way.”

Carleton started off the scoring against the Warriors mid-first quarter with a 65-yard connection from Mills to Behar. With 4:16 left on the clock, Jayde Rowe (Scarborough, ON) had an 8-yard run for a touchdown, bringing the Ravens lead up to 14. Mike Domagala (St. Catharines, ON) finished off the first quarter with a 27-yard field goal.

The Ravens continued to add to their score early in the second quarter, as Mills found receiver Dexter Brown (Sherwood Park, AB) on a 40-yard pass for another touchdown. The Ravens brought their lead to 24, while the Warriors remained scoreless.

A Carleton fumble put the Warriors in great scoring position, as they picked up the ball at the one-yard line. Waterloo pushed their way into the end zone, and found themselves on the board.

Carleton once again made their way down the field. A big rush of 42 yards by Rowe put the Ravens one yard short of a touchdown. On the next play, Mills and his strong offensive linemen plowed their way past Waterloo defenders for another touchdown.

Carleton led 31-7 over Waterloo going into the second half.

A pair of field goals by Domagala allowed the Ravens to pull away with their lead. Waterloo conceded a safety, and the Ravens found themselves with a 39-8 lead.

Waterloo ended the third quarter with a touchdown, making the score 39-15, in favour of Carleton.

Two more safeties in the fourth quarter finalized the win, as the Ravens ended the Warriors season with a final score, 43-15.

Many Carleton starters were taken off of the field for the second half of the game for precautionary measures. “We wanted to make sure our guys were fully rested and healthy, because at this time of the year, any time you can get extra rest for your guys it is only going to benefit them,” explained Sumarah.

While Carleton was certainly favoured going into today’s game, they focused on the task at hand, and were able to get their sixth win of the regular season.

“[We] knew that we had a chance to go 6-2 which is an improvement from last year,” said Sumarah. “It speaks to progress, and I think the guys were motivated to go out and perform so we could get to that 6-2 mark.”

VanWynsberghe reiterated this point, explaining that every game is important in the regular season. “We tried to make the game about us, and focused on what we needed to do. […] The real season begins now. We are more excited than we have ever been.”

CARLETON RECORDS:

With nine receptions during Saturday’s game, Nate Behar (London, ON) set a new record at Carleton for most receptions in a single season. Behar’s 57 receptions in 2016 surpassed Marc Dinardo’s 51 receptions during the 1997 season.

Quarterback Jesse Mills (Halifax, NS) also set a Carleton record for passing completions in a single season. Mills held the record for his 2015 performance, with 152 completions. Despite playing only the first half of the game in Waterloo, Mills added 17 completions to his total, setting a new personal best with 166 pass completions in his final season.

RAVENS VS. GEE-GEES: PART II

The win over Waterloo guaranteed the Ravens their first home playoff game since 1986. The city of Ottawa will be alive once again as Carleton takes on the University of Ottawa in another rivalry match-up. This time, rather than Pedro the Panda up for grabs, a trip to the semifinal game is on the line.

“This actually has a lot more value and importance [than Panda Game] because it is a one-and-done game,” said Sumarah. “I think it is going to bring a different level of intensity, a different level of focus for our guys knowing that we are in playoffs.”

Ravens receiver Kyle VanWynsberghe (Delhi, ON) agrees with his coach, that although Panda is an exciting game at the time, it is in the past, and they are preparing for a much bigger game against uOttawa.

“Panda is cool, but it means absolutely nothing now,” said VanWynsberghe. “It is very difficult to beat a team twice, in my opinion. Ottawa is a very well coached team, and they have some talented players, but we have to win.”
