All eyes were focussed on CFC100 Mathieu Roy in the backfield, but the Dynamiques defence had no answers with the star running back registering three touchdowns along the ground, another through the air, and 330 total yards to cap off a campaign for the ages. This type of highlight reel performance was the norm for Roy this season, who led the province with 20 total touchdowns, and 1708 combined yards between rushing, receiving and returning duties.

Edouard Vachon also turned in a stellar showing during his limited action throwing the football, completing 4/6 passes for 195 yards and three touchdowns. Anthony Savard couldn’t be stopped taking two of those passes to the house on plays of 76 yards and 71 yards, which just edged out Roy’s game-high 67 yard rushing effort. The Condors defence was led by Justin Cloutier with a team-high 8.5 tackles, followed close behind by Gabriel Cote-Pedneault, Edward Bolduc and Samuel Phoenix Dery swarming all over the ball. It was a relatively clean game with no sacks on the board, but Philippe Deblois was able to turn the tables with the game’s lone interception.


After going down 14-0 in the first quarter, Charles-Lemoyne made a surge before halftime with a pair of touchdown connections between Noah Gravel and Andrei Delinois to draw even. It could’ve been the turning point if they held on for the whistle, but unfortunately the defence collapsed with seconds remaining giving Saint-Jean-Eudes a 22-14 lead at the break.

The lights went once again out for the Dynamiques offence after halftime as the Condors added another nine points on the board, but there was a sense of hope early in the fourth quarter as Gravel hit Anthony Filip Rodriguez in the end zone to bring them with striking distance down 33-21 with seven minutes left on the clock.

A miracle comeback wouldn’t be in the cards as Saint-Jean-Eudes slammed the door shut with two more scores to put the game out of reach, although Charles-Lemoyne went down fighting with a late touchdown run by Delinois to close out a valiant effort. The duo of Gravel and Delinois were the offensive engine for the Dynamiques all day with Gravel completing 22/32 passes for 234 yards and 44 yards with his feet, while Delinois caught five passes for 110 yards and 34 rushing yards on three attempts.

CFC100 Kenzy Paul also got in on the action catching a game-high six passes for 51 yards, and five other receivers marked their name on the stat sheet with a reception. On the other side of the field, Jean-Christophe Cloutier led the defence with 9.5 tackles including two TFLs, while Thomas Pilon and Jacob Jinchereau combined for 6.5 tackles including five TFLs.

The victory ends a long Bol d’Or drought that plagued Saint-Jean-Eudes dating back to 1999.
