Saturday, Oct. 15

Concordia (17), Sherbrooke (43)

With files from: Vert et Or (feature photo: Yves Longpré/Photobanque)

The Vert et Or have enjoyed a ninth straight victory at home versus the Concordia Stingers on Saturday. This gain of 43-17, before 3672 fans, is of critical importance in the race for a playoff spot, since it places the Vert & Or in front of the McGill Redmen. They occupied before the match the fourth and final playoff position with access to the last spot. The Vert & Or even temporarily ahead of the Stingers to the third level, with two games still to play.

17-7 deficit at halftime, Sherbrooke ravaged everything in its path in the second half, shutting out the opponent in addition to registering 36 points en route to its first home win this fall.

Two touchdowns by Isaac Lauzon in the first five minutes of the third quarter and another by quarterback Jean-Christophe Bourque St-Hilaire early in the fourth quarter, allowed the players David Lessard to turn the tide and put the game out of reach. The first of two touchdowns Lauzon is consecutive to the fifth interception of the season cornerback Vert & Or Samuel Polan.

The Stingers who have not won at Sherbrooke for 13 years now; watched their quarterback Trenton Miller being intercepted four times in the game. Keith Sanscartier is responsible for two of those turnovers. The latter has also got his second interception of 43 yards late in the game, to put the last major.

The flawless delivery Vert & Or in the last two quarters is as much brio of the attack that the effectiveness of the defensive. The Vert & Or indeed managed to be efficient in the red zone, while its ability to cause significant shifts remained on the other side of the ball.

“It was our best game in coaching decisions and adjustments at halftime. Hats off to my assistants Mathieu Pronovost and Guillaume Boucher, who have made courageous and destabilizing game calls for stingers throughout the match. We were confident even if we fell behind because we were the best team on the field today and points were eventually accumulate, “said head coach Vert & Or, David Lessard.

The kicker for the Vert & Or, Mathieu Hébert, was perfect on field goals in four attempts thanks to the successes of 31 yards, 22 yards and 14 yards twice. Only to perform all field goals (due to the injury that ended the season Pierre-Antoine D’Astous), the No. 47 has also had excellent punts for an average 42.8 yards. Hébert also realized a simple, four converts to total 17 points scored.

In his third start, the Sherbrooke pivot Jean-Christophe Bourque St-Hilaire was better as the game progressed. The veteran finished the day with 19 completions on 28 for gains of 319 yards, although his team did not score through the air, it caused a lot of trouble to the Stingers identifying Jean- Raphael Moisan nine times for 144 yards and Frédérick Caron, four times for 98 yards. The Vert & Or was just under 500 yards, with an impressive total of 495 of 67 games, including 27 first tests. The ground game has also contributed significantly in scoring with 197 yards, including 53 obtained by Gabriel Polan.

“We were not happy with the score at half-time, but no one was panicking in the locker room because we knew we had to be patient with our game. In the second half, their defensive line was less effective and we could score big hit. We had a great contribution of the guys as much ground as in the air. Congratulations to our defense today also that we give the ball a few times. We are very happy with the win, but there is still a lot of football and we know we can compete in this league if we play to our potential, “said Bourque St-Hilaire.

The visitors seemed to want to compete in the first two quarters of play. The Stingers have also realized the only major of the first half, including one on a game rigged on a release phase. Earlier in the game, their pivot Trenton Miller had crossed the goal line on a 6-yard run.

Only two games scheduled at Vert & Or schedule in the regular season and they will be against both teams head or face the Carabins University of Montreal in Cepsum, Sunday, Oct. 23, then return home to host Rouge et Or of Laval University Saturday, October 29 at 16 pm

Regina (18), Alberta (19)

Rookie kicker Brent Arthur connected a 26-yard field goal with 18 seconds left in regulation time to lift the University of Alberta Golden Bears football team to their first win of the season as they defeated the CIS No.4 ranked Regina Rams 19-18 at Foote Field on Saturday afternoon.

Arthur, who is a transfer from Division 2 NCAA school Quincy University, came into the contest having made two of three field attempts in his first CIS season, with a longest of 26-yards, but the Bright’s Grove, Ontario native was on point on Saturday, connecting on all four attempts, including the game winner as well as his CIS career best, a 41-yard attempt that split the uprights with no time on the clock in the second quarter.

Fourth-year receiver Tylor Henry caught Alberta’s lone touchdown on the afternoon, reeling in a 14-yard toss from quarterback Ben Kopczynski in the third quarter. Henry finished the game with 90 yards on six receptions which moved him up a pair of all-time lists as he leapt into third place all-time in Golden Bears conference receiving yards, as well as fifth place in Canada West all-time receptions.

Kopczynski himself had an efficient afternoon, completing 11 of 19 passes for 206 yards, while receiver Adam Zajdel was instrumental as well, earning 85 receiving yards on just two catches. Runningback Ed Ilnicki picked up 95 yards along the ground to bump his season total to 605 on the season, second best in Canada West.

Regina, now 4-2 on the season and second place in the Canada West standings, put up good numbers on the Bears, including 537 total offensive yards, but committed four turnovers, all of them fumbles, losing three to the home side. Although Noah Picton completed 22 of 32 passes for 314 yards, he couldn’t find any of his receivers in the endzone. Rams runningback Atlee Simon, the conference leading rusher last season, rumbled for 162 yards on 29 carries and picked up Regina’s lone TD, a 2-yard plunge in the second quarter.

Alberta found themselves in a 10-0 hole midway through the second quarter, following a field goal by Daniel Scraper and Simon’s TD, but Arthur connected on a pair of field goals, sandwiched around a Regina safety, to make the score 12-6 at half-time.

Scraper split the uprights in the third quarter to make it 15-6, but the Bears’ defence slowly began to turn the tide on Regina after that. Defensive back Tak Landry was the first to make a play as he stepped into the Rams’ backfield to tackle Simon for an 8-yard loss, and then on the following play, Picton watched in horror as the snap sailed over his head and as sophomore Bears defensive lineman Lucky Daniels jumped on the loose ball at the Regina 19-yard line.

On the ensuing offensive series, Kopczynski found a wide open Henry from 14-yards out, and suddenly the Bears only trailed by two.

As the clock wound to zeroes in the third quarter, the Rams fumbled again, this time Simon dropping the rock on the Alberta 10-yard line just as the quarter expired. Brandon Foster recovered for the Bears, and the offence marched 86-yards on 11 plays to earn their first lead of the game when Arthur was successful on his third field goal of the game, putting Alberta up 16-15 to start the fourth quarter.

The Rams slipped back in front 18-16 on the very next possession, traveling 72-yards on 11 plays to set up Scraper’s 11-yard field goal.

A few possessions later, however, the Rams committed their third fumble of the half when Picton dropped the biscuit, which was recovered by linebacker Josh Taitinger, who was making his return to the line-up after sitting out a few weeks with injury.

This fumble set-up Alberta at the Regina 34-yard line with 1:48 on the game clock, and the Bears were able to grind the ball down to the 19-yard line, which included a gutsy five yard run by Kopczynski on a third-and-one situation in which the sophomore QB ran off tackle to earn the first down. Alberta continued to milk the clock before teeing it up for Arthur and the CIS rookie made no mistake from 26-yards out, making the score 19-18 with 18 seconds left.

Regina did manage to get to midfield before the clock expired, but Scraper’s attempt from 52-yards out fell short of the uprights, leaving Alberta with the win.

The Golden Bears, now 1-5 on the season, will remain at home next weekend when they host the 2-4 Manitoba Bisons at 1:00 p.m. on October 22, while Regina will travel to Vancouver to take on the 3-3 UBC Thunderbirds on Friday.

Laval (22), Montreal (19)

With files from: Laval Rouge et Or 

The Rouge et Or won a first victory at CEPSUM since 2013, Saturday afternoon, beating the Montreal Carabins by 22-19 in another classic between the two rivals.

Laval (5-1) joins Montreal (5-1) atop the university league RSEQ, but the Blues retain first place, those who have given less points to the opponent than the Reds.

Since the two teams have split the honors this season, and the differential in both games is equal (3 points), the third tiebreaker applies: the team that has given up the fewest points during the campaign will occupy first place.

With two games remaining this season, the Carabins gave up 67 points, 10 less than the Rouge et Or.

Once again, the Montreal-Laval duel offered a great afternoon of football, one of the best rivalries in the CIS. “They are always very emotional games against Montreal. It can not be closer than that. The guys showed a lot of character. We made good games, we made bad games, but we continued to work through adversity. It was a hard fought game, another classic. I’m super proud of them, ” said head coach Glen Constantin of the Laval training.

The victory, the first against the rivals of the metropolis since the opening game of 2015, but would have slipped into the hands of R et O. Laval committed three turnovers, against one for Montreal. “Pay attention to the errors,” agreed Constantine.

The beginning of the match was difficult for both offences, while each team had to release three times before a single first play was successful.

That’s when the Laval offensive began running. On the 48 yard line, the Rouge et Or succeeded the first touchdown of the game on a third and goals, Richard Hugo himself carrying the ball over the line.

The very next series, defensive Reds are illustrated again. Discount on a bad quarter Caron Samuel, Gabriel Marcoux jumped on a loose ball, allowing Laval to return to the Carabin’s 39 yard line.

The attack went to the door of the goals, but could not convert the turnaround in touch. Dominic Lévesque easily put the ball between the posts for a distance of 15 yards, and the beginning of the second quarter, Laval was ahead 10-0.

The Carabins who had still did not have a first first down, knew their best moments later, sinking into the Red zone. However, defensive holding up, and the local had to make an field goal of 36 yards to reduce the score to 10-3.

The Carabins added a single on a long throw Felix Menard-Brière. Then, with 1:23 to play in the half, Montreal regained the ball into the Laval territory. A pass 30 yards Caron Louis-Mathieu Normandin for major offered the Carabins their first advantage of the day. The score was then 11-10.

From the first game in the series to the next attack, Richard was intercepted by Samuel Drapeau. The Blues were charging the Rouge et Or, while Caron joined Regis Cibasu, which was plated on the 1 yard line. The Montreal pivot called his number for a touchdown, and instead of returning to the locker room ahead, Laval residents trailed 18-10.

But the Reds regrouped during the break. Right out of the locker room, Laval crossed 80 yards in five games for the major, the work of Jonathan Breton-Robert on a 11-yard run. After 45 minutes, the Blues retained a narrow lead of 18-17.

Laval regained the lead early in the fourth on a safety touch granted by Montreal. In the next sequence, Hugo Richard escaped the ball, which was taken over by the Carabins 39 R and O. This change resulted in a goal attempt from 41 yards Ménard-Brière, miss the blue kicker. The ball went all the same to the back of the end zone for the red, and equal 19-19 was created.

This was continued until 1:31 of the third period, when the attack visitors crossed the field to allow Lévesque successful goal attempt 24 yards by 22-19.

Montreal was not yet beaten. At their 39 yard line, the Carabins went to the 20 yard line of Laval, but failed on an attempted third down and one yard to cross, restoring possession to Laval with 17 seconds match and confirming the victory of the latter .

The last home game of the regular season in 2016 will take place this Sunday, October 23 at 13h against the Bishop’s Gaiters. Tickets for this duel are available online or at the ticket Rouge et Or at 418 656-FOOT (3668).

Western (68), Ottawa (17)

Source: Tony von Richter, Manager, Communications and Media Relations | Western Mustangs

Alex Taylor ran for 160 yards and three touchdowns to help the Western Mustangs defeat the Ottawa Gee-Gees 68-17 on Saturday afternoon at Gee-Gees Field.

The win moves Western to 6-1 on the year, and keeps the Mustangs alongside Laurier and McMaster atop the OUA standings. Ottawa moves to 5-2 to put them into a tie with their crosstown rivals in the Carleton Ravens.

Taylor’s 160 yards on the ground represent the second highest single game total of the season for the Winnipeg native, and came on 25 carries. Quarterback Chris Merchant was next up on the Mustangs rushing leaderboard, recording 72 yards on the ground on only nine attempts.

Merchant had another strong game through the air as well, throwing for 252 yards and two touchdowns, along with one interception on 17-22 passing. Stevenson Bone also performed well after coming on in relief of Merchant in the second half, completing nine of 13 passes for 162 yards and one touchdown.

Defensively, Western held the league’s top offence to only 324 yards, their lowest total of the season. The purple and white limited the Gee-Gees to only 76 yards on the ground, and held quarterback Derek Wendel to a season-low of 228 yards passing with one touchdown.

The Mustangs didn’t wait long to open the scoring, putting points on the board on their opening drive of the game. Merchant capped off the seven play, 70-yard drive with a 10-yard touchdown pass to George Johnson to put Western up 7-0 less than three minutes into the contest.

After stuffing the Gee-Gees on third and one on the ensuing drive, the Mustangs took advantage of their strong field position, driving 49 yards in seven plays to make it 14-0 on a seven-yard scoring run from Taylor.

The Gee-Gees opened the scoring in the second frame with a 34-yard field goal from Lewis Ward, however a six-yard touchdown run from Taylor on the Mustangs next possession put the purple and white in front 21-3.

Western’s ground game continued to put up points towards the end of the quarter, with Cedric Joseph scoring from two yards out to make it 28-3. Marc Liegghio extended that lead less than two minutes later, hitting a 36-yard field goal to add another three points for the Mustangs.

The Gee-Gees responded on their next possession, driving 75 yards and finishing things off with a 17-yard pass from Wendel to Mitchell Baines for Ottawa’s first major of the day.

Just when it seemed like the Gee-Gees might take that momentum into the half, Merchant led the Mustangs offence down the field, going 84 yards on only seven plays to add another touchdown to the board. Harry McMaster finished off the scoring drive, connecting with Merchant on a 16-yard pass to send Western into the half with a 38-10 lead.

Western’s offence didn’t slow down in the final 30 minutes, scoring another 30 points in the second half. The Mustangs added three more touchdowns, with Taylor and Matt McDougall running in one major each, while Bone connected with Justin Sanvido on a nine-yard touchdown pass. Liegghio rounded out the scoring with three more field goals to give Western the 68-17 victory.

Next up for the Mustangs is a Homecoming showdown with the McMaster Marauders on Saturday, October 22, in the regular season finale for both teams. Game time is set for 1 p.m. at TD Stadium, and all the action can be seen live on Rogers Cable 13 and Rogers Sports Plus, and online at OUA.tv. Fans can also tune in on CHRW Radio 94.9 FM and Newstalk 1290 CJBK.

Windsor (5), Queen’s (55)

Source: Peter Reimer, Sports Information Intern | Queen’s Gaels

The Gaels (3-4) took sole possession of the final OUA playoff spot with a 55-5 Homecoming win over the Windsor Lancers (2-5).

Capacity at the revitalized Richardson Stadium was tested at Saturday’s homecoming game against Windsor, with standing room tickets going on sale earlier in the week to accommodate the sell-out crowd of 8,011.

Before the game, the March of the Decades made their way from Grant Hall to the new stadium, with alumni from across Canada and around the world walking under flags with the decade they graduated. Queen’s grads spanning from the reunion zero class of 2016 to alumni from the 1940s participated in the new event.

The late Doug Hargreaves was honoured prior to kickoff with a speech from Principal Daniel Woolf and a video montage. Queen’s presented the Hargreaves family with a portrait of the former Gaels coach.

The game ball was delivered by the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell.

GAME FLOW
The Gaels had the tricolour faithful on their feet early and often, scoring their first touchdown of the game six minutes into the action. Jonah Pataki (Wallaceburg, Ont.) was the one who got things rolling for Queen’s, rushing eight times for 67 yards on a single Gaels drive, including a 12 yard touchdown run for the first major of the afternoon. Pataki added his second touchdown of the game at the end of the first quarter after Wesley Mann (Almonte, Ont.) set up a Gaels first-and-goal with an interception and a 34 yard return. A rouge and two conceded safeties gave the tricolour a 19-0 lead after 15 minutes.

Queen’s started the second quarter with a passing touchdown, as Nate Hobbs (Mississauga, Ont.) found Peter Hannon(Toronto) over the middle from 15 yards out. Midway through the second frame, the Lancers earned their first points of the game following a Gaels fumble on a punt return. Windsor started their drive in Queen’s territory, and Clark Green kicked a 37 yard field goal to make it 26-3. The tricolour responded with Pataki’s third touchdown on the very next possession, and went into the half up 33-3. At the break, Pataki had already run for 136 yards.

With their playoff hopes on the line, the Gaels came out just as strong in the second half, scoring three more touchdowns in the third quarter. Hobbs found Matteo Del Brocco (Kingsville, Ont.) wide open in the endzone for a pair of touchdowns to start and end the quarter, while Mann returned his second interception of the day 60 yards to score his first career touchdown. After the Gaels missed a two-point convert to close out the quarter, Queen’s was on top 55-3 heading into the final frame.

With the game all but over with 15 minutes to play, the tricolour took full advantage of the 55-man depth chart. The Gaels finished with a 55-5 win after conceding two points late in the game.

Queen’s defence had an incredible game on the whole, limiting the Windsor offence to only nine first downs and 131 yards. The Gaels held one of the OUA’s top running backs, Terrence Crawford, to only 58 yards on the day.

BY THE NUMBERS
5 – Wesley Mann is tied for the conference lead with five interceptions this season
6 – Queen’s sits alone in the sixth and final OUA playoff spot after homecoming win
8,011 – The sell-out crowd totalled 8,011 fans

FINAL SAY
“I thought the kids gained some great confidence today, there were a lot of great individual accomplishments and team accomplishments. The defence is getting better every week they really are, they have a great running back over there and a big offensive line and we did a great job of shutting him down. There is no question that whatever momentum you get by playing at home we had.” – Head Coach Pat Sheahan

UP NEXT
To secure their spot in the postseason, the Gaels need a win next weekend when they host No.9 Ottawa on Saturday at 1pm. Get your tickets to Queen’s final home game of 2016 at gogaelsgo.com/tickets.

The University of Toronto Varsity Blues football team topped the Waterloo Warriors 38-7 on Saturday, October 15 at Varsity Stadium.

The win marks Toronto’s sixth straight over Waterloo. The Blues end their 2016 regular season campaign with a 2-6 record.

TORONTO STATS:

Fifth-year quarterback Marcus Hobbs went 15-for-26 for 348 yards and one touchdown, while rushing five times for 25 yards and one TD. His favourite target on the day was Rahul Madan, who had nine receptions for 186 yards and one major.

Anthony Naccarato earned player of the game honours with 201 all-purpose yards. He made three receptions for 111 yards, made five punt returns for 86 yards and rushed twice for four yards in the win.

Kaleb Leach led the Blues on the ground, rushing 11 times for 85 yards, while Verrick Ponder rushed 11 times for 59 yards and one major in the win.

Fourth-year linebacker Michael Leslie led the Blues with five tackles, while sophomore defensive back Damoy Robinson had 4.5 tackles on the day.

GAME FLOW:

Naccarato opened the scoring six minutes into the game, returning Caleb Girard’s punt 61 yards for the major. Toronto held an 8-0 lead after the first quarter.

Bernard recovered a Waterloo fumble deep in Warriors territory early in the second and Hobbs converted the four-play, five-yard drive with a one-yard rushing major. Ryan Grandell added a 21-yard field goal and the Blues took an 18-0 lead into halftime.

The Warriors got on the board with a rouge off the second half kickoff, but the Blues answered right back. Hobbs broke a couple of tackles and connected with Rahul Madan for a 75-yard touchdown reception to put Toronto up 25-1.

The Blues extended their lead late in the third. TJ Morton faked a punt and ran for the first down and that set up a one-yard rushing major from Verrick Ponder.

Ryan Grandell kicked 15 and 34 yard field goals in the fourth and Waterloo’s Lucas McConnell connected a seven-yard pass with Tyler Ternowski on the last play of the game for the major.

McMaster (64), York (2)

Source: McMaster Marauders

Chris Pezzetta ran all over the Lions in the first half, and the remainder of the McMaster Marauders offence took over in the second Saturday.

The veteran running back from Burlington, Ont. had a total of 162 yards on 14 carries and a pair of touchdowns in the opening half, as McMaster built a 34-point lead at the break before ultimately defeating the York Lions 64-2.

Averaging 11.6 yards per carry, Pezzetta’s total on the ground was a career single-game high, achieved in just two quarters of play.

Moving to 6-1, McMaster remained tied for first in the OUA standings with just one game remaining. The Marauders will travel to London, Ont. to play the Western Mustangs, one of their fellow 6-1 teams, in the final game of the regular season on October 22, with the opportunity to clinch the top seed and a first-round playoff bye with a win.

Kicker Adam Preocanin of Burlington matched the McMaster single-season record with a pair of field goals to reach 24 on the year, equalling the record set by Tyler Crapigna in 2014. However, Preocanin missed a pair of attempts in the second half that would have given him sole possession of the record, and was blocked on McMaster’s final drive of the afternoon, finishing 2-5.

He sits two field goals shy of the OUA and CIS single-season record set by Guelph’s Daniel Ferraro in 2014.

With his 31-yard, third-quarter touchdown, receiver Danny Vandervoort of Barrie, Ont. moved into sole possession of third on the CIS career receiving touchdown list with 29, passing his former head coach Stefan Ptaszek in the process.

Their team had not run back a kick for a touchdown all season, but Mac returners Mitch Garland of Hamilton and Aaron Baker of Scarborough, Ont.  both took punt returns the distance on Saturday. Garland provided McMaster’s second touchdown of the game in the first quarter, returning a deep punt 85 yards to the end zone. Baker answered with a 63-yard return for McMaster’s final touchdown of the day in the fourth quarter.

Pezzetta’s replacement in the second half, rookie rusher Dominic Mandalfino enjoyed his first touchdown and a breakout performance Saturday. The Burlington native had 138 yards on 16 carries, averaging 8.6 per touch. As a team, McMaster racked up a season-high 355 yards on the ground.

Marauders quarterback Asher Hastings of Regina finished Saturday 16 of 24 passing for 207 yards and two touchdowns versus one interception. Dylan Astrom entered the game in the third quarter, completing four of five passes for 71 yards.

Dan Petermann (Stoney Creek, Ont.) was McMaster’s leading receiver on the day, with 63 yards from six catches. Vandervoort followed with 66 yards from four catches with a touchdown, while Josh Vandeweerd of Burlington also caught four passes for a total of 40 yards. Max Cameron of St. Catharines, Ont. had a touchdown on his only reception of the afternoon in the first quarter, hauling in a 16-yard pass for Mac’s first major.

Linebacker Eric Mezzalira of Grimsby, Ont. was McMaster’s leading tackler, with five solo tackles and two assists. Lineman Fabion Foote (North York, Ont.) had five and a half tackles and two sacks.

NEXT UP: McMaster travels to London on Saturday, October 22 to close out the OUA regular season against the Western Mustangs.

The StFX X-Men spoiled Homecoming for Saint Mary’s, defeating the Huskies 45-6 Saturday afternoon in AUS football action.

The win clinches first place in the AUS standings for the X-Men (5-1), ensuring a first round playoff bye and a Nov. 12th hosting date at StFX University for the Subway AUS Championship Loney Bowl.

Tivon Cook (Scarborough, ON) had 405 passing yards for StFX and connected on three touchdowns, including a 21-yard strike to Dejaun Martin (Scarborough, ON) on a seven play, 73 yard opening drive.

A Paolo Lach-Edwards (Hamilton, ON) score on a 27-yard interception return improved the X-Men cushion to 14-0 with 6:04 left in the opening quarter.

Cook hit Kaion Grant (Toronto, ON) on an 80-yard bomb in the second quarter and StFX added three more scores, two field goals by Jonathan Heidebrecht (Camrose, AB) and another connection by Cook to Grant, this time pulling in a 65-yard score.

The Huskies rallied late in the first half but quarterback Brock Berglund’s (San Diego, Calif.) 1-yard sneak was denied by StFX and the half ended 34-0.

Brian Hope (Port Coquitlan, BC) put Saint Mary’s on the scoreboard using a 12-yard field goal with 4:38 left in the 3rd quarter to trim the X-Men lead 34-3.

Another X-Men interception return for a touchdown, this time by Justin Holland (Parksville, BC) for 19-yards, saw StFX end the third quarter up 41-3.

The kicking game took over in the fourth, with both kickers collecting all seven points scored.

Heidebrecht had an 8-yard field goal and added a rouge for StFX while Hope booted a 40-yard field goal with 3:33 left in the game for SMU, ending all the scoring 45-6.

StFX led the Huskies in first downs (19-16), total offence (522-263), rushing yards (113-63) and passing yards (429-253).

Jordan Socholotiuk (Fort McMurray, AB) paced the X-Men with 106 yards on the ground while Berglund led the Huskies with 37 rushing yards.

Cook’s 405 yards passing was good on 19 for 25 attempts and one interception while Berglund went 21-35 for 159 yards and three interceptions.

Saint Mary’s Trevor Erdmann (Ardrossan, AB) finished with 94 passing yards and a pick.

Subway player of the game Kaion Grant had five catches good for 230 yards and two scores while Martin finished with seven grabs, 112 yards and a StFX touchdown.

Spencer Wiechert (Dartmouth, NS) had nine catches for 75 yards for SMU while teammates D’Shawn Miller (Brampton, ON) and Leonardo Mantuila (Edmonton, AB) had four catches each.

Kadel King (London, England) had 6.5 tackles and Kay Okafor (Enugu, Nigeria) four sacks for StFX while Emmanuel Agbozo (Surrey, BC) had 9.5 tackles for the Huskies who fall to 2-4 in the AUS standings.

Both teams hit the road next Saturday, October 22nd with StFX visiting Acadia (1-5) while SMU travels to Mount Allison (2-4). Kick-off for both games is 2pm.

Mount Allison (15), Acadia (13)

Source: Acadia Sports Information

A blocked field goal with less than five seconds remaining in the game denied the Acadia Axemen their second win of the season as the Mount Allison Mounties stole another Homecoming win from the host Axemen.

With the Mounties playing their third Acadia Homecoming game in a row over the last three seasons, Mount Allison’s 15-13 lead with seconds remaining in the game, remained so as the Mounties improve to 2-4 with the win.

The final score reflected the struggle that both teams had in scoring any majors throughout the game.

The Axemen jumped on the board at 5:14 in the first quarter with a safety given up by the Mounties followed by a 26 yard field goal by Brandon Jennings (St. Albert, Alta.) to give Acadia a 5-0 lead.

Jennings and Mountie Ryan Lambert (Grimsby, Ont.) exchanged 26 and 38 yard field goals respectively in the closing minutes of the second quarter to end the first half at 8-3 for the Axemen.

The first and only touchdown of the game came from a nine play, 70 yard drive that was capped by a Jakob Loucks (Cornwall, Ont.) 13 yard toss to Subway Player of the Game Dakota Brush (Brantford, Ont.), giving the Mounties a 10-8 advantage.

The remaining third quarter scoring came from another Acadia safety and 40 yard field goal from Jennings.

Mount Allison added a team safety along with a 40 yard field goal by Lambert to hold onto a 15-13 lead with just over ten minutes remaining in regulation time.

Driving the field 49 yards on five plays with just under a minute remaining, the Axemen were unable to take away a win after Mount Allison after a 34 yard field goal attempt by Jennings was blocked.  The block came from the hand of Graham Kelly, a 6’7″ freshman Mountie backup QB who was put in specifically to attempt a block.

Both teams were statistically close with Acadia’s 334 net yards of offense compared to the Mounties’ 323 yards.

Acadia’s Subway Player of the Game, Cody Cluett (Cole Harbour, N.S.) was 21 for 45 pass attempts, posting a game-high 242 yards of passing, while MountieJakob Loucks posted an efficient 18 receptions on 28 attempts for 192 yards.

Brush had a game high 109 yards receiving on eight receptions while Axemen Bradley Vince (Cambridge, Ont.) pulled in three receptions for 65 yards. Veteran Acadia receiver Eli Prochnau (Cochrane, Alta.) had five receptions for 63 yards.

The ground game was led by Mountie Chris Reid (Brampton, Ont.) who ran 18 times for 83 yards, while rookie Acadia running back Daniel Obiang (Ottawa, Ont.) posted a personal season high of 79 yards on 16 hard fought carries.

The Mounties improve to 2-4 while the Axemen hope wins in the remaining two regular season games will improve their 1-5 record. Acadia hosts the first place StFX X-Men next Saturday at 2:00 p.m., while the Mounties host Saint Mary’s in Sackville, N.B.

Friday, Oct. 14

Manitoba (6), Calgary (63)

CALGARY – The fifth-ranked University of Calgary Dinos fired from all cylinders from start to finish Friday night, handing the Manitoba Bisons the third-worst loss in program history with a 63-6 triumph at McMahon Stadium.

Led by the return of both Michael Klukas and Austen Hartley to the receiving corps, the Dinos picked up 619 yards in their best offensive outburst of the year. Klukas finished with two catches for 52 yards and a touchdown, playing his first game of the 2016 season, while Hartley returned to the field after missing two games and promptly led the way with eight catches for 180 yards and a touchdown.

The defence, Calgary’s strength so far in 2016, got in on the action too, hauling in three interceptions – including a 77-yard return TD by Hunter Turnbull – and limited Manitoba to just 200 offensive yards on the night.

With the victory, the Dinos improve to 5-1 and clinch a playoff spot for the 10th consecutive season.

“We had a great week of practice, everybody was executing well, and we felt really good coming into the game,” said Dinos head coach Wayne Harris. “The guys were able to execute and bring their tempo from practice into game action. Anytime you can get the kind of turnovers we did defensively, and anytime the offence can put up those kind of numbers, it’s very exciting.

“The coaches put together a great game plan, and the players picked it up and were able to execute it.”

Calgary’s first interception led to their first touchdown as Brennan Van Nistelrooy picked off Theo Deezar on the seventh play of the game. After a big gain by Hartley, Jimmy Underdahl found Jeshrun Antwi for a 20-yard touchdown, his first of two on the day. The Dinos’ second TD also came one play after Hartley picked up a big gain, this time 34 yards, and Bryce Harper ran it in from six yards out for his first of two on the night 

The Dinos’ special teams got into the act late in the second quarter, when Robert Woodson blocked a Matt Riley punt and Hunter Karl scooped it up and ran it in for a touchdown, essentially putting the game out of reach before half time.

If it wasn’t already out of reach then, 17 more points from Calgary in the first eight minutes of the third quarter salted it away. The dagger came when Turnbull picked off Deezar and scampered 77 yards downfield, making the score 45-6.

It wasn’t all positive news for Calgary, however. One drive before Turnbull’s pick six, fifth-year quarterback Underdahl ran for a first down but landed awkwardly, untouched, on the one-yard line. He made his way to the Calgary dressing room and did not return to the game.

“We’ll wait for the doctors to assess everything, and hopefully we’ll be able to get him back before the end of the season,” said Harris. “In the meantime, the other guys are there for a reason – Adam (Sinagra) has a very strong arm and is a very capable quarterback, and so is Josiah (Joseph). They’re both competitive quarterbacks and will have great futures here.”

Underdahl finished with 207 passing yards and two TDs on 11-of-19 passing, while his replacement, Sinagra, completed six of nine passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns – one each to Hartley and Klukas. Harper, meanwhile, racked up 135 rushing yards to go with his two majors.

Defensively, Jack McEwen’s 5.5 tackles led the way for the Dinos as he picked up 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble on a night where the Calgary defence held Manitoba to just 95 rushing yards. Boston Rowe also had a solid night defensively, picking up 5.5 tackles and assisting on one of McEwen’s sacks.

On a long night for the Bisons defence, DJ Lalama had eight tackles – all solos – while Caleb Abraham added 7.5. Deezar finished the night 13-for-29 for 144 yards and three interceptions, with Cam Fox churning up 73 yards on 13 carries along the ground.

Manitoba’s two scores, both first-half field goals by Brad Mikoluff, came on the only two forays inside the Dinos’ 20-yards line on the night. In fact, the closest the Bisons got to Calgary’s end zone in the entire second half was the 49-yard line, and just five of their 21 drives in the game ended inside Calgary territory.

Manitoba (2-4) heads north to face the Alberta Golden Bears next Saturday afternoon at Foote Field before returning home to close out the season against the Regina Rams. The Dinos, meanwhile, play their third straight home game next week when they welcome the Saskatchewan Huskies (3-3) to McMahon Stadium Saturday, Oct. 22 for a 1 p.m. kickoff, live on Shaw TV and CanadaWest.tv. Calgary will close the season one week later as they face the UBC Thunderbirds in Vancouver.

UBC (10), Saskatchewan (40)

Source: Saskatchewan Huskies

The University of Saskatchewan Huskies reasserted themselves as a playoff contender Friday night with a 40-10 win over the No. 10 ranked UBC Thunderbirds.

The Huskies tallied 494 yards of total offense, including 350 through the air while shutting out the reigning Vanier Cup champions in the second half to improve to 3-3 on the season. With the win in the lone meeting between the two schools, Saskatchewan leap frogs UBC (3-3) in the standings and will hold the tiebreaker, if necessary.

“We put ourselves back in the hunt,” said Huskie head coach Brian Towriss. “We still control our own destiny. Full marks to our guys, they played really, really well.”

Kyle Siemens led the charge for the Huskies with 346 yards and three touchdowns through the air. Siemens was good on 24 of his 38 passes on the night. Mitch Hillis was Siemens’ favourite target in his first game back from injury hauling in 10 passes for 175 yards and a pair of scores. Jarvis James rushed for 66-yards and a pair of touchdowns to help the Huskies get out to an early lead.

“He (Mitch) broke the game wide open,” Towriss added about his fourth year receiver Mitch Hills. “His two touchdowns in the third and fourth quarter really broke it open for us, it was great to see.”

Saskatchewan got off to a strong start on a cold and blustery night in Saskatoon where winds were gusting over 60 km/h. The Huskies marched the field on their opening drive that was capped off by a Jarvis James one-yard plunge. The Huskies would lead all the way to the finish.

The T-Birds were able to find their rhythm before the first quarter was out, driving the length of the field before settling for a Greg Hutchins 20-yard field goal.

Saskatchewan answered back in the second quarter with a Sean Stenger field goal and a James eight-yard rushing major to go ahead 17-3.

UBC found the end zone for the first time when Michael O’Connor, who took a big hit on the play, got the ball off just in time to Trivel Pinto for a 20-yard touchdown.

Stealing the momentum back before halftime, Siemens found Julan Lynch for a five-yard touchdown in the final seconds of the first half to put the Huskies up 24-10.

The second half belonged to the Huskies. Hillis hauled in a pair of Siemens’ passes for touchdowns. The first was a 10-yard grab midway through the third quarter. On his second score, Hillis caught the pass from a scrambling Siemens, broke a pair of tackles and outran the defence for a 77-yard touchdown.

Michael O’Connor went 22-for-37 in the game for UBC, passing for 231 yards and a touchdown. Ben Cummings was O’Connor’s top target with nine receptions for 92 yards. Cummings also led the T-Birds in rushing with 174 yards on 19 carries. UBC finished the night with 405 yards of total offense.

A.J. Blackwell recorded 11 tackles in the game for UBC to lead the defensive unit.

Eric Thakurdeen led the Huskies defense with 7.5 tackles. Payton Hall and Brooks Falloon each recoreded an interception on O’Connor.

Next up for Saskatchewan is a visit to Calgary to take on the No. 5 Dinos. UBC remains on the road, travelling to Regina to face the No. 4 Rams.

McGill (37), Bishop’s (14)

by John Edwards, Bishop’s Sports Information

Three touchdown passes by Frédéric Paquette-Perrault led the McGill Redmen to a 37-14 win over the Bishop’s Gaiters in CIS football action before 535 fans at a cool, dark Coulter Field on Friday night.

The rookie quarterback from Montreal accounted for all four of McGill’s touchdowns, as he threw scoring strikes to Preston Bews, Louis Brouillette and Jeremy Sauvageau, and ran in for another. He finished with 465 passing yards, as he completed 37 of his 48 passes.

The Redmen got off to a quick start, scoring touchdowns on their first two possessions, and taking a 15-0 lead after the first quarter. A pair of Findlay Brown field goals and a safety touch gave the visitors a 23-0 halftime advantage.

After struggling in the first half, Bishop’s came out strongly in the second half, as Mathieu Demers led the Gaiters on a seven-play, 65-yard drive, capped by an 11-yard pass to Alex Bouffard, to get on the board.

The Gaiters comeback continued four minutes later, on a great defensive play. On third-and-goal from the one, Paquette-Perrault attempted to dive into the end zone but was stripped of the ball. The Gaiters’ Arnaud Dandin picked up the loose ball at the 6-yard line, and sprinted 104 yards to the end zone, pulling Bishop’s to within nine points at 23-14.

However, that was as close as the Gaiters got, as the Redmen added a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns to put the game out of reach.

McGill outgained Bishop’s 575 yards to 108, made 30 first downs to the Gaiters’ 11 and held the ball for 39:31.

For the Redmen, Bews was the leading receiver, with 11 catches for 139 yards, while Sauvageau had seven for 70 yards, and Brouillette had six for 80. Donavan Martel led their rushing, with 12 carries for 80 yards.

For Bishop’s, Demers went 6-for-18 for 79 yards passing, as he came on in relief of Jaeden Marwick, who went 4-for-9 for 29 yards. Bouffard had four catches for 33 yards and the major, while Michael Nelson led the Gaiter rushers with two carries for 20 yards.

Defensively, Ben Pouliot led the Gaiters with eight tackles and a blocked kick, while Dandin finished with three tackles, the 104-yard fumble return and three passes knocked down.

The Gaiters (1-5) are back in action on Sunday, Oct. 23, as they visit the Laval Rouge et Or in Quebec City. McGill (3-3), meanwhile, returns to action on Saturday, Oct. 22 as they visit Concordia.

Guelph (25), Laurier (27)

Posted by: Jamie Howieson, Laurier Golden Hawks
Wilfrid Laurier running back Levondre Gordon rushed for 193 yards and a touchdown to help lead the No. 7 Golden Hawks to a 27-25 win over the Guelph Gryphons on Friday afternoon at University Stadium.

Hosting their first School Day Game in front of 4652 fans, the Hawks raced out to a 24-6 lead before holding off the Gryphons late rally to knock off Guelph for the first time in five years and in the process, post their sixth win of the season, their most since 2009.

“Like we said to the guys all week, they’re [Guelph] not a four-loss football team and they showed that today,” said head coach Michael Faulds after the victory. “They took us right down to the wire but I’m proud of how our guys battled. Leading 24-6, we would like to put them away but in the end, we made enough plays to get the win.”

“They’re a really good team,” added Gordon, echoing his coach’s comments. “But our offensive line pretty much got it done. They really opened the gaps for all the running backs, including myself. By opening it and spacing it out, that allowed us to have success and establish our passing game.”

Although the Hawks had 20 fewer offensive plays on the afternoon, Laurier was effective in converting a number of big yardage plays to gain control of the contest early. Gordon started proceedings just five minutes into the contest as he broke a 71-yard run for a touchdown to give Laurier a 7-0 lead.

After a pair of field goals from Guelph kicker Gabe Ferraro of Mississauga, Ont., cut the lead to one, Laurier got another explosion play courtesy of quarterback Michael Knevel of Brantford, Ont., and receiver Brendan McCracken of Kitchener, Ont. Pinned deep in their own end, Knevel went over the middle to a wide open McCracken who outran the Gryphons defensive backs for a 94-yard major.

The play, which gave the Hawks a 14-6 advantage, was the fifth-longest pass-and-catch in school history.

Laurier would go on to add a 29-yard field goal from Nathan McLean of Kitchener, Ont., to take a 17-6 lead at the half.

The Hawks continued rolling to start the third quarter thanks to another big run from Gordon. The 5-11 speedster broke a 42-yard run to set up a one-yard plunge from Osayi Iginuan of Hamilton, as Laurier stretched their lead to 24-6.

“The thing about Levondre is that he has a speed that no one else has,” said Faulds of his running back. “He’s able to run away from people, and because he’s small, he’s able to hide behind our big offensive line, much like Dillon used to do, and then when he pops out, he’s going full speed.”

However, with the playoff lives hanging in the balance, Guelph responded with a Mack Jones (Port Colborne, Ont. ) 25- yard touchdown rush late in the third quarter and a two-yard run from quarterback James Roberts (Cambridge, Ont.) early in the fourth to pull themselves back into the contest.

Needing a response, it was Gordon once again providing the spark as a 36-yard run one the next possession after Roberts’ score set Laurier up for McLean’s second field goal of the game, a 16-yard chip shot that restored the Hawks’ lead to eight.

With Guelph needing a touchdown to have a chance to tie the contest, the Hawks defence stepped up. One promising drive was snuffed out by a key sack from Robbie Smith and Nakas Onyeka, both from Brampton, Ont., while another was stopped thanks to Malcolm Thompson’s (Windsor, Ont.) second interception of the afternoon. On the play, however, Thompson went down with an injury that required him to be helped off the field.

With one last chance and the clock reading 1:13 left, Roberts drove the Gryphons from their 40-yard line into the endzone, a seven-play drive capped off by a Kian Schaffer-Baker (Guelph, Ont.) touchdown.

Needing a two-point conversion to tie the game, Roberts’ pass attempt was knocked down by defensive linemanTrevaughan James of Whitby, Ont. Laurier then recovered Guelph’s onside kick attempt to seal the win, moving them to 6-1 on the season.

Gordon’s performance, which came on just 12 carries, moved him into fifth in conference rushing with 528 yards on the season while his 16.1 yards per carry average bumped his league-best rushing average to 9.6 yards per carry.

Knevel had another solid performance for the Hawks, finishing 15-of-27 for 222 yards and a touchdown, but did throw his second interception of the year. McCracken finished as Laurier’s top receiver with two catches for 99 yards and a score.

On defence, Onyeka was the star of the show for Laurier as he had 12 tackles, 1.5 sacks and 4.5 tackles for a loss. His 4.5 tackles for a loss give him 13 on the season, second most in the conference.

Fellow linebacker Matt Williams of Ajax, Ont., also shone with 10.5 tackles and one sack.

Guelph, meanwhile, fell to 2-5 on the season and are in danger of missing the postseason after winning the Yates Cup a year ago.

They were led by receiver A’Dre Fraser of Halifax, as he had nine catches for 127 yards while Roberts finished the game 23-for-37 for 296 yards and one touchdown but also threw three interceptions.

Linebacker Lukas Korol of Burlington, Ont., had nine tackles to lead their defensive effort.

The Hawks, who finished the regular season unbeaten on home turf, now head out on the road to close out their schedule against the Windsor Lancers next Saturday, October 22. A win over the Lancers will clinch Laurier their first 7-1 season since 2007 and give them an opportunity to clinch a first-round playoff bye.

“We just have to stay the course,” added Faulds on facing the Lancers next week, a team the Hawks haven’t defeated under his watch. “We take it one game at a time and Windsor is next on the schedule. They’re a desperate football team too, as they’re fighting for the final playoff spot, so we know we’re going to get their best effort.”

Game time is set for 1 p.m.

NOTES: Onyeka’s 12-tackle performance gives him 146 for his career, moving him into fourth place on Laurier’s career tackles list…Thompson’s two interceptions give him five for the season, tied for fifth most in a single season in school history…Thompson also now has 268 interception return yards this year, a number that shatters Laurier’s single-season record, previously 185 set by Rohan Dove back in 1986…he also now owns the school record for career interception return yards with 328, breaking the mark of 276 previously held by Stacey Coray between 1971-72
