(19 h)  Cégep Édouard-Montpetit 28 vs John Abbott College Islanders 42
(championnat Bol d'Or div. 2 / division 2 Gold Cup)
(terrain/field: Cégep de Thetford, Thetford Mines, QC)


Les Islanders gagnent!
Les Islanders gagnent!
Les Islanders gagnent!

Pour la 1re fois depuis 2002 les Islanders du Collège John Abbott ont remporté le championnat du Bol d'Or. Ils avaient adopté une stratégie parfaite pour les conditions au terrain du jeu et les capabilités défensives de leurs adversaires.

Malheuresement, je n'ai pas pu prendre de photos pendant le match parce que j'étrait trop chargé pour manipuler l'appareil photo. Désolé.

Abbott wins!
Abbott wins!
Abbott wins!

For the first time since 2002 the John Abbott College Islanders are Bol d'Or champions again. They had the perfect game plan for the field conditions and their opponents defensive capabilities.

Unfortunately, I was not able to take any photos during the game as I was too busy keeping track of the plays to operate the camera. Sorry.

It took four hours for the fan bus to make its way from the John Abbott College campus to the game field in Thetford, mostly due to the orange cone induced gawdawful traffic between the island of Montreal and the South Shore, but upon arrival at the site of the championship game it was clear that it was well worth the trip. Not only are the actual sport facilities at the Cégep de Thetford great for spectators and players but the organizers had also set up a fan zone outside the stadium with a stage, several fire pits as well as booths offering food and refreshments. It was only too bad that the weather conditions discouraged most people from being able to fully enjoy it.

The playing field itself was also well prepared, with all the lines and hash marks clearly visible and only a thin layer of snow covering other areas. Unlike the debacle that was the Bol d’Or game last year at the Claude-Robillard Centre, the Thetford site had tractors, snow blowers and a small army of people with shovels to clear the snow off the field.

The only thing that remains to be improved is the handling of tickets purchased on-line. The expectation is that having the ability to purchase a ticket on-line ahead of the game would make it easier for fans to enter the stadium but in fact the reality is quite the contrary. People who choose to buy their tickets at the site simply pay for them at the ticket booth, get their wrist band and they go in. Those, however, who made the mistake of doing it on-line have to line up inside a small tent and wait for the single person who is there to serve them to find their name on a printed list before they can get their wrist band. There is no shortage of staff inside the tent but they’re all standing around and not helping out because, apparently, their exclusive role is to serve some mythical VIPs who are nowhere in sight. This is something that the RSEQ definitely needs to improve on. Please excuse the rant but if nothing is said then nothing will be done.

Luckily, the actual game made it easy to forget about these little frustrations, other than the quality of the refereeing, which is noted at the end of this report. The Islanders got the ball first and they started their first offensive drive from their own 28-yd line after a 27-yd kickoff return by Elijah Williams. Sticking mostly to running plays because of the advantage that a ball carrier in full flight had over the defenders due to the slippery field conditions, with a sprinkling of passes here and there, they moved 82 yards in nine plays, finishing with a 1-yd TD run by Williams to take the early 7-0 lead (Troy Lendvay convert kick).

On the ensuing Lynx possession, the Édouard-Montpetit team appeared to emulate the John Abbott strategy of relying on the running game and they had good success with it, gaining 35 yards on seven running plays and a first down at their own 51-yd line. However, after that they changed tack and started to throw short passes in the flat. The Abbot defense was ready, however, and the Lynx were forced to punt from the center of the field. Unfortunately for them, the snap on the punt attempt sailed over the kicker’s head and by the time he was able to recover the ball at the 32-yd line the Islanders’ Maxime Lipari-Couture was on him to make the tackle to force a turnover on downs.

The Islanders offense then went on the field and on their first play Matthieu Boudreau threw a TD pass to Jacob Mattie to double their lead to 14-0 (Lendvay convert kick). The Lynx, however, responded on their next drive, using a balanced mix of runs and passes to move 76 yards in 10 plays, finishing with a 16-yd TD catch by Hugo Lacroix to make the score 14-7 (Samuel Pineault convert kick). Each team then went on offense three more times before the half time break but while the Islanders were able to score on every possession, the Lynx were only able to do it once and that made the score 35-14 for the Islanders.

It was a completely different ball game at the start of the second half. The Lynx were the first to go on offense and using the Abbott strategy of relying on the running game, they used five runs and only two passes to move 85 yards, finishing with a 1-yd TD run by their QB Tristan Rinaldis to narrow the gap to 35-21 (Pineault convert kick).  But then, unlike in the first half when the Islanders needed just one play to score a TD, this time they were only able to run one play before they turned the ball over to their opponents on a fumble that was recovered by Charles-David Dubois at the John Abbott 50-yd line. The Édouard-Montpetit team then changed their tactic and using mostly passing plays, with some help from two major penalties called against the Islanders, they scored another TD, again on a 1-yd run by Rinaldis to make the score 35-28 for Abbott (Pineault convert kick).

On the ensuing Islanders possession, the team in blue managed to run five plays but again they turned the ball over, this time on an interception by Shayen Boisvert at the Édouard-Montpetit 29-yd line. The situation started to look dire for the Islanders but their defense came to the rescue and they forced the Lynx to go three-and-out and punt the ball away. The offense, however, again could not protect the ball and they turned it over on a fumble recovered by Jules Gaudet near mid field. The Lynx then started driving towards the Abbott end zone but they stalled at the 30-yd line and they turned the ball over on downs.

The next two offensive series, which were now at the start of the 4th quarter, felt like déjà-vu, though, because John Abbott again turned the ball over with a fumble, this time recovered by Hugo Théry, while the Lynx then turned it over on downs. The Islanders offense then started from their own 40-yd line and going back to the strategy that worked they used a series of seven runs and four passes to score a TD on a 6-yd run by Williams that increased their margin to 42-28 (Lendvay convert kick) with only 6:01 left on the game clock.

The Lynx tried to mount a comeback and they managed to get as far as the middle of the field but some dropped passes as well as a major penalty that was called against them doomed their efforts and they turned the ball over on downs. The Islanders offense then went back on the field with 2:18 left to play and they were able to gain a couple of first downs that helped them run out the clock and preserve their win.

During the presentation of the trophy, Elijah Williams and Tristan Rinaldis were named the outstanding players of the game for their respective teams.

Now, a final word about the quality of refereeing. Readers of this web site will know that I am a strong supporter of referees but the crew who were assigned to this game were clearly not well prepared. They were indecisive and inconsistent. On several occasions, they had whistled a play dead and moved the sticks but then they huddled together and reversed their decision, while the players and spectators were looking on and trying to figure out what was happening. In other cases, after the ball on a pass play bounced off the chest of an Islanders receiver, fell to the ground and was picked up by a Lynx defender they called it a fumble while a similar play involving a Lynx receiver was ruled an incomplete pass. One last word of advice – you always have to have a backup set of yard sticks and a down marker, especially in an important game like this one.

La traduction est en cours. Désolé. The John Abbott College Islanders took advantage of their opponents’ mistakes, scoring 17 points after getting the ball on turnovers, and they won the game 28-8 to earn a spot in the division 2 Bol d’Or championship game for the third year in a row. However, they will not be playing against the Valleyfield Noir et Or as most people had expected and instead their opponents will be the Lynx from Cégep Édouard-Montpetit.

The Islanders got off to a great start. Their defense first forced their opponents to go three-and-out on the opening drive and when the offense went on the field, it only took one play, a 36-yd TD run by Elijah Williams, for the home team to take a quick 7-0 lead (Troy Lendvay convert kick).

The visitors, however, responded immediately on the ensuing possession. Starting from their own 4-yd line, they used a combination of short passes in the flat and runs to move 106 yards in 16 plays, finishing with a 1-yd run by Jonathan Fournier to even the score at 7-7 (Clément Chevalier convert kick).

It looked like the scoring would continue when the Islanders offense went back on the field as they quickly moved to the Thetford 30-yd line but the next play resulted in an interception by Yani Gouadfel just five yards from the end zone that snuffed out the scoring threat. Both teams then got into penalty trouble and the next three possessions all ended with punts. Half way through the second quarter John Abbott was finally able to mount a scoring drive, going 37 yards in 8 plays, finishing with a 32-yd field goal by Lendvay that put the Islanders back in front 10-7.

The Filons offense then went back to what worked for them at the start of the game and started to mix short passes and runs and they got as far as mid field, but they fumbled the ball and Ashton Miller-Melançon recovered it for John Abbott with 1:26 left to play in the first half. The mistake proved costly for the Thetford team as the Islanders ran three quick plays, the last one a 30-yd TD catch by Lendvay that increased their lead to 17-7 at the half time break (Lendvay also kicked the convert).

The third quarter saw the two teams mirror each other with punts and interceptions but the only scoring was a single point for the Filons when a John Abbott punt returner was tackled in the end zone. The Islanders finally were able to increase their lead to 20-8 at the start of the 4th quarter thanks to a 30-yd field goal by Lendvay after they got the ball thanks to an interception by Jeremy Morin.

After a single by Lendvay made the score 21-8 for the home team, the Islanders appeared poised to score more points on their next possession when they moved 81 yards in 6 plays all the way to the Thetford 9-yd line but they fumbled the ball and it was recovered by David Campeau-Desmeules. However, on the first play of the ensuing drive by the Filons, Miller-Melançon got the ball right back for the Abbott offense when he intercepted a pass at the Thetford 42-yd line. It then took the Islanders seven plays before Shawn Valentine got into the end zone on a 1-yd run to make the final score 28-8.

The Filons got the ball back with 1:47 left to play in the game and they got all the way to the Islanders 24-yd line but once again they turned the ball over, this time on a fumble recovered by Khaldon Maghrby that sealed the victory for John Abbott.

The Islanders will now travel to the Cégep de Thetford, where all the Bol d’Or games are being held this year, to play for the division 2 championship on Friday, November 15 at 7:00 pm, hoping that third time will be the charm.

(Coupe LFMM / MMFL Cup)
(terrain/field: Stade Alphonse-Desjardins, St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC)


Pour le 2e episode de la série "Qu'est ce qui se passe ailleur dans le monde du football" j'ai assisté au match de la Coupe LFMM, qui est equivalent à la Coupe Jack Simpson de la ligue LFMQ, entre les Western Patriotes de l'Ile-Perrot et les Vicas de Victoriaville. La traduction du reportage est en cours. Désolé. In the second installment of the "how the other half of the football world lives" series I attended the MMFL Cup game, which is like the Jack Simpson Cup game in the QMFL, between the Ile-Perrot Western Patriotes and the Victoriaville Vicas.

The Western Patriotes were much better able to adjust their game plan to deal with the adverse weather conditions, which had strong, cold wind blowing from one end zone to the other, to control the game and to win the MMFL Cup. The Ile-Perrot team was not only able to balance their offense between runs and passes but they also minimized turnovers, giving the ball away on only two of their twelve possessions while the Victoriaville Vicas committed seven turnovers on 11 possessions.

After forcing the Western Patriotes to punt on the opening drive, the Vicas appeared poised to score the first points of the game when they attempted a 40-yd field goal with the wind in their backs but the ball was blocked by W#11 and recovered by W#52. The two teams then traded possessions, with the Vicas actually showing an advantage over the Ile-Perrot team as they gained more yards and held a 2:1 advantage in terms of time of possessions but they could not move closer then the 38-yd line of the Western Patriotes.

With 1:17 left to play in the first half, Ile-Perrot offense went back on the field starting near mid field and even though they were playing into the wind, they were able to gain yards with quick passing plays, finishing the drive with a 21-yd catch-and-run play by W#8 to take a 7-0 lead at the half time break (W#3 convert kick).

The start of the second half was a good indicator of the things to come as the Vicas fumbled the ball on the kickoff return and W#11 recovered it. However, the Western Patriotes could not take advantage of the turnover and they punted the ball away, but the Vicas then went three-and-out and punted it right back. Ile-Perrot then needed just one play, a 29-yd run by W#15 to score a TD that increased their lead to 13-0 (convert kick failed).

Even though most of the play after that took place on the Western Patriotes side of the field, Victoriaville could not mount any scoring threat and they turned the ball over on three of their four possessions. The Vicas got the ball for the last time with 1:09 left to play in the game at their own 4-yd line but they could only gain 20 yards before the clock ran out to seal the win for the Western Patriotes.

During the trophy presentation, V#11 was named as the outstanding player of the game for the Vicas while W#15 received the same distinction for the Western Patriotes.

La traduction est en cours. Désolé. Only about 30-40 die-hard fans showed up to watch the game that has become an annual ritual – the Stallions and the Raiders playing in the Jack Simpson Cup playoffs. The only difference was that this time it was a semi-final game instead of the championship match.

On a wet field and with a constant drizzle, the conditions were ideal for the type of football that has always characterized the Chateauguay Raiders – their smash mouth ground attack – and they took full advantage of it.

Stallions went on offense first starting from their own 42-yd line but they only ran four plays and they turned the ball over on downs at their own 31-yd line. Three plays later, the Raiders scored the first TD of the game on a 15-yd run by R#23 that, as it turned out, gave them all the points they would need to win the game.
The Chateauguay offense got the ball seven more times during the game and they scored touchdowns on all but one of those occasions.
Their defense added two more TDs, one on a 70-yd INT return and the other on a fumble recovery in the end zone, to make the final score 57-0 for the home team.

The Raiders will now face Les Gaulois de Gatineau, to whom they lost 13-14 at the end of the regular season, for their 4th consecutive Jack Simpson Cup championship.

La traduction est en cours. Désolé. As the game was drawing to a close, it looked like the John Abbott College Islanders were finally going to beat their rivals from Valleyfield. After being behind the Noir et Or almost the entire game, they had scored a touchdown to take a 37-33 lead with only 51 seconds left on the clock. Then, 29 seconds later they got the ball back at the Valleyfield 23-yd line and all they had to do was to run out the clock, but in the most unexpected and unusual circumstances they turned the ball over and Valleyfield was able to score the winning points in the most improbable way to keep their perfect record against John Abbott intact.

To borrow a quote from Dennis Green, the Valleyfield Noir et Or “are who we thought they were”. The leopard has not changed its spots. They are a ball control team that runs a lot of plays. In this game, they ran 82 plays compared to 48 for John Abbott, they had the ball for more than 2/3 of the playing time and, as it was quite expected, they drew many penalties, 19 for 179 yards to be specific. It seemed, however, that this time the Islanders defense were well prepared for their opponents.

With standing room only crowd of about 800-900 spectators looking on, the game started innocently enough, with Valleyfield going on offense first but being forced to punt after running eight plays and John Abbott responding with a punt when they went on offense. The next Valleyfield series, however, would provide a sense of the things to come. On the 4th play of the drive, Valleyfield were facing a 3rd down and 2 yards to gain situation. The QB threw a short pass but instead of hitting a Noir et Or receiver the ball hit a John Abbott defender. It looked like the pass was going to be intercepted but instead the ball bounced off the Islander player straight into the hands of V#88 for a first down. 10 plays later, V#10 scored the first points of the game on a QB sneak to give the visitors a 7-0 lead.

After an exchange of punts, John Abbott went back on offense and they needed just three quick plays, the last one a 25-yd catch by J#1, to level the score at 7-7. The following two series finished again with punts but the next time Valleyfield got the ball they used eight plays to move 97 yards, finishing with a 6-yd TD catch by V#87 to regain the lead at 14-7 which did not change until the half time break.

The character of the game changed completely in the second half. The Islanders went on offense first and they needed only five plays to score a touchdown on a 31-yd run by J#1 to even the score at 14-14. However, the Noir et Or responded immediately in their own style, a 15-play, 83-yd effort that took 8 minutes off the game clock and finished with a 4-yd TD run by V#10 to go back in front 21-14. The Valleyfield offense did not get much rest, though, and they had to go back out on the field after the Islanders fumbled the ball on their first play from scrimmage on the ensuing possession. Luckily for JAC, their defense limited the damage to a field goal that gave the visitors a 10-point lead. The Islanders offense then redeemed itself on their next possession with a quick 5-play scoring drive that finished with a 29-yd TD catch by J#1 that narrowed the gap to 24-21 at the end of the 3rd quarter. After the Valleyfield team responded with an 11-play, 55-yd drive that finished with a 31-yd field goal by V#56 and which made the score 27-21, history repeated itself as the Islanders offense turned the ball over again on their first play from scrimmage, this time with an interception by V#26. Starting at the JAC 8-yd line, the visitors then needed only two plays to score a TD on a 2-yd run by V#6 that made the score 33-21 (2-pt convert attempt failed). Once again, however, the Islanders offense redeemed itself, this time scoring a TD on a 25-yd catch by J#88 that made the score 33-28.

After forcing the Noir et Or to concede a safety on their ensuing possession, the Islanders then took a page out of their opponents’ playbook and put together a 10-play, 72-yd drive where they converted on a 4th down and 9 yards to go situation and finished with a 10-yd TD run by J#2 that gave them the lead for the first time in the game at 37-33 with only 51 seconds left to play in the game. The Valleyfield team then went on offense starting from its own 34-yd line but on their second play, they fumbled the ball and J#32 recovered it. There were only 29 seconds left on the clock and all the Islanders had to do was to line up in the “victory formation”, snap the ball and let the clock run out. Unfortunately, they fumbled the ball on the snap and Valleyfield recovered it at their own 23-yd line with only 26 seconds left to play. On their first play, the Islanders defense forced the QB to scramble but he still managed to throw a pass that was caught by V#36 for a first down at the JAC 41-yd line. Then, with only 13 seconds left, the Valleyfield QB was again forced to throw a desperation pass towards the end zone. The ball hung up in the air and a JAC defender appeared ready to make the interception but instead the ball bounced off his hands straight towards a Noir et Or receiver V#1 who made the easy catch and walked into the end zone to score the winning TD. Jubilation amongst the Valleyfield fans and players, complete disbelief and devastation on the Islanders side.

John Abbott received the kickoff with 5 seconds left on the clock and they tried a few lateral passes but in the end an Islander player got tackled in the end zone to give Valleyfield an extra two points that made the final score 42-37.

Les Spartans n'avaient que 17 joueurs. Les Stallions n'en avaient que 22, mais c'était plus que le minimum de 20 exigé par le Livre Vert. Les deux équipes ont joué un sort de jamboree.. The Spartans only had 17 players. Stallions only had 22 players but that was more than the minimum 20 that is required by the Green Book. Both teams ended up playing a controlled scrimmage.
