CÉGEP10 RANKINGS (SM): Garneau keeps the dream alive; Grasset run to the Bol d’Or


Garneau Elans v.s Vieux Montreal Spartiates

We warned you to expect the unexpected come playoff time, and Garneau indulged with a 32-22 victory over Vieux Montreal. While it was definitely an upset, this was the Elans second victory over the Spartiates this season, so it looks like they had their number while everyone else was searching for answers. Tristan Blais didn’t have the best passing percentage, but he made the most of his opportunities throwing three touchdown strikes on seven completions to Alexandre Beliveau, Gabriel Faucher and Emile Malenfant. Malenfant also added 51 yards in the backfield on eight carries, while Blais was running for his life with 26 attempts and 85 yards out of the pocket. Vieux Montreal got some stellar performances out of Malick Hassane Meiga and Andriy Nikulich, with the latter dominating on defence with 12.5 tackles and three sacks, but it wasn’t enough to overcome a gutsy performance by the Garneau defence to keep them off the board. CFC60 Geoffrey Cantin-Arku led the Elans in tackles with 7, and CFC60 Ian Leroux came up with an interception. If they want this magical ride to continue, they’re going to need their defence to pull off their best performance to date facing a high powered Andre-Grasset offence in the Bol d’Or.

Saint-Jean Geants v.s Andre-Grasset Phenix

No unexpected results in the second semi, but Andre-Grasset did take an unorthodox path towards their 31-21 victory against Saint-Jean. Usually it’s their passing attack that puts teams on their heels, but instead they turned to Anthony Renault in the backfield who carried the ball 40 times for 155 yards and two touchdowns. CFC60 Jonathan Senecal wasn’t asked to do too much, but he still managed a statline of 11/16 for 187 yards with 1 touchdown and 1 interception. The lone major through the air went to William Marchand on a 42 yard connection, and Benjamin Desroches rounded out the scoring with short run across the goal line. Ettore Casti III tried to keep the Geants alive throwing touchdown passes to CFC60 Edouard Arsenault and Jeremy Dussault, but they couldn’t find a way to keep up on the scoreboard as Renault melted the clock away. We don’t expect to see another 40 carry type of game in the Bol d’Or, but the Phenix have given the Elans something extra to think about going into the big dance.
