Tant de choses qui avaient mal tourné lors du match contre Ottawa pourraient facilement expliquer la défaite de l'équipe junior, mais je vais seulement discuter quelques-uns.
  1. Qu'est-ce qui s'est passé avec les leçons tirées du match contre Châteauguay? Les leçons étaient qu'il fallait jouer contre Ottawa de même façon qu'on avait joué au cours de la seconde demie contre les Raiders. Il semble que la défense avait mal compris le message, car ils ont joué comme il faut seulement dans la seconde moitié au lieu de tout le match. Quant à  l'offensif, il semblait qu'ils n'étaient même pas à  l'école quand on enseignait cette leçon parce qu'ils ressemblaient à  l'équipe de la première moitié du match contre Châteauguay pendant 60 minutes contre les Riders. Comme Ricky Ricardo avait l'habitude de dire: « Lucy, spliques-toi! Â»
  2. Tout le monde sait que la clé de la réussite au football est que si quelque chose fonctionne bien alors on continue à  l'utiliser jusqu'à  ce que l'autre équipe trouve un moyen de l'arrêter. À ce point-là , on fait un ajustement et on essaie quelque chose de différent. Le corollaire de cet axiome est que si quelque chose ne fonctionne pas, alors on arrête de le faire et on fait de changements. Pour insister sur des courses au milieu s'il n'y a rien à  gagner? Pourquoi on n'essaie pas une course à  l'extérieur, un revers, une course au sens contraire ou bien une passe par le démi? Il faut surprendre les adversaires? Les seules personnes qui ont été surprises étaient les spectateurs qui ne pouvaient pas comprendre pourquoi les Stallions faisaient toujours le même jeu.
  3. J'ai toujours appuyé les arbitres. Après avoir vu jusqu'à  maintenant quelques centaines des parties depuis les estrades, j'ai entendu toutes sortes de réactions négatives de la part des spectateurs, dont la plupart n'étaient pas justifiées, à  mon avis parce que très peu de gens connaissent les règles aussi bien que les arbitres sur le terrain, ils sont beaucoup plus loin de l'action et ils n'ont pas le même point de vue. Cependant, je dois admettre que c'était absolument impossible à  comprendre certaines décisions au cours du match. Au début de la partie, c'était les pénalités contre la défense des Stallions pour la rudesse contre le quart-arrière qui avaient fait que les Stallions avaient peur de lui toucher pendant le reste du match, même quand ils avaient une parfaite opportunité. Toutefois, la décision qui a été la plus frustrante, ou plutôt le manque d'une telle décision s'est passée sur le dernier jeu du match. Le QB des Riders courrait vers le côté droit du terrain lorsque C-O Conway lui poursuivait. Un joueur de ligne d'Ottawa avait tenté de lui bloquer, mais Conway avait fait un geste pour lui éviter. Étant battu sur le jeu le joueur des Riders avait attrapé Conway et lui avait tourné en pleine vue de l'arbitre qui n'était qu'à  cinq en arrière. Tous les spectateurs demandaient une pénalité pour avoir rétenu mais rien ne s'est passé. à‡a se peut que l'arbitre avait décidé que l'infraction qu'il avait témoignée ne ferait aucune différence, car le reste de la défense des Stallions avait entouré le quart-arrière et s'apprêtait à  lui plaquer, mais ça n'a aucune valeur. Les refs sont censés d'être équitables et cohérentes et le dernièr jeu ne se mesurait pas à  cette norme. J'espère que les Stallions vont envoyer le vidéo de cet incident à  la ligue et qu'ils vont demander de l'évaluer. C'est certain qu'on ne veut pas que le gagnant de la Coupe Manson soit décidé comme ça.
  4. Eh oui, finalement, ce fameux dernier jeu du match, ou, pour être plus exacte, les deux dernièrs jeux. Voici les circonstances : les Riders avaient obtenu le ballon au centre du terrain avec deux minutes à  jouer. Ils avaient exécuté trois jeux et ils avaient réalisé un premier essai à  la ligne de 40 verges des Stallions avec 30 secondes à  jouer. À ce moment, une équipe qui a de la classe aurait posé le genou par terre, mais pas les Riders. Tout d'abord, ils avaient fait une course au milieu pour obtenir trois verges. Puis, avec moins de 10 secondes sur le cadran, ils décident d'exécuter le jeu « bootleg Â» sur lequel l'arbitre avait avalé son sifflet. En fin compte, rien ne s'est passé, mais les dieux de football n'étaient pas du tout contents et les Riders devront, un jour, subir les conséquences. En attendant, je vais envoyer une copie de la partie de l'équipe midget des Stallions contre Repentigny de la veille pour montrer aux Riders comment une équipe qui a de la classe termine un match qu'elle avait dominé.
Même si aucun joueur individuel offensif ne méritait pas une mention, plusieurs joueurs sur la défense, laquelle avait provoqué sept revirements à  Ottawa au cours de la 2-ème moitié, se sont illustrés. Jordan Jasiukajc, Andrew Palmer et C-O Conway avaient chacun réussi un sac. Conway avait également recouvré deux échappés tandis que Pascal Plante avait fait deux interceptions et Julien Allaire en avait une.

2010-Oct-10 suivi: ma description du comportement de l'équipe des Jr. Riders sur le terrain a provoqué quelques réactions de la part des gens d'Ottawa sur le site web de www.capitalregionfootball.info. C'est bien, on devrait avoir une discussion seine, civilisée et franche à  propos de se sujet.
So many things went wrong during the game against Ottawa that could easily explain the junior team's loss but I'll cover just a few.
  1. What happened with the lessons learned from the Chateauguay game? The lesson was that they had to play against Ottawa the way they played in the second half against the Raiders. It seems that the defense misunderstood the message because they played the way they were supposed to only in the second half instead of the whole game. The offense, on the other hand, looked like they weren't even in school when the lesson was being thought because they looked like the first-half team from the Chateauguay game during the full 60 minutes against Ottawa. As Ricky Ricardo used to say: "Lucy, you got some splainin' to do!"
  2. A well known key to success in football is that if something works well then you keep using it until the other team figures it out, at which point you make an adjustment and go to something different. The corollary to this axiom is that if something is not working then you stop doing it and try something else. Why keep pounding the ball up the middle when there is nothing there to be gained? How about a toss, a sweep, a reverse, a counter, a screen or maybe even a flee-flicker? Where is the element of surprise? The only people who were surprised were the spectators who couldn't figure out why the Stallions kept running the same play.
  3. I have always been a big supporters of the referees. Having watched a couple of hundred games from the stands by now I have heard all kinds of negative reactions from the spectators, most of which are unjustified in my opinion because very few people know the rules as well as the officials on the field, they are much farther from the action and they don't have the same vantage point. However, even I will have to admit that some of the calls during the game were absolutely impossible to understand. Initially, it was the 'roughing the passer' penalties that were called against the Stallions defense in the 1-st quarter that caused them to be afraid to touch the Riders QB for the rest of the game even when they had a clear shot. However, the call that was most frustrating, or more appropriately the non-call, occurred on the last play of the game. The Riders QB was scrambling to the right side of the field with C-O Conway in pursuit. An Ottawa lineman tried to block him but Conway made a move to get around him. Being beaten on the play the lineman grabbed Conway and turned him around while the head referee was just 5 yards back looking directly at the two players. Everyone called for a holding penalty but nothing happened. Maybe the ref figured that it wouldn't make any difference because the rest of the Stallions defense converged on the QB and was going to tackle him but that's not the point. Refs are supposed to be fair and consistent and the last play certainly didn't live up to that standard. I hope that Stallions send a video clip of that play to the league and asked them to look into it. We certainly would not want the Manson Cup to be decided by that kind of officiating.
  4. And finally, oh yes, the last play of the game, or actually the last two plays. Here is the scenario: the Riders got the ball at center field with 2 minutes left to play. They ran three plays and got a first down at the Stallions 40-yd line with 30 seconds left. Any team that has any class would have taken the knee at this point to end the game but not the Riders. First, they ran up the middle and got three yards. Then, with less than 10 seconds left on the clock, they had the QB running a bootleg play on which the ref swallowed his whistle. In the end, no damage was done but the football gods certainly were not pleased and the Riders will have to deal with that on their own. In the meantime, I will be sending a copy of the midget Stallions game vs Repentigny from a day earlier to show them how a team that has class ends a game which they dominated.
While no individual offensive player merits a special mention, several players on defense, which caused seven Ottawa turnovers in the 2-nd half, stood out. Jordan Jasiukajc, Andrew Palmer and C-O Conway each had a sack. Conway also recovered two fumbles while Pascal Plante made two interceptions and Julien Allaire had one.

2010-Oct-10 follow-up: my assessment of the way the Jr. Riders behaved on the field sparked some reaction from people in Ottawa on the www.capitalregionfootball.info website. That's good, we should have a nice, healthy, frank discussion about things like this.

Si l'équipe midget continue de jouer de la même façon pour le reste de la saison alors elle pourrait battre n'importe quelle équipe de la ligue.On devrait conserver le film de cette partie dans un coffre-fort et s'en servir de lui pour des fins de la formation d'autres équipes qui voudraient s'améliorer.

La victoire des Stallions midget était un cas d'un démantèlement technique et méthodique d'un adversaire. Toutefois, contrairement au match de l'équipe junior contre Ottawa, ça fut fait avec classe et sans des éléments qui laissaient un mauvais gout. Ils n'ont pas gagné simplement parce qu'ils avaient joué contre une mauvaise équipe. Au contraire, les Rhinos ont beaucoup de joueurs compétents et talentueux qui ont fait de nombreux bons jeux, en particulier sur la défense, mais les Stallions avaient un meilleur plan du match et ils l'ont exécuté parfaitement, à  partir du quart-arrière qui restait dans la poche, surveillait calmement le terrain et qui lançait des ballons comme s'il s'agissait des flèches aux receveurs qui les attrapaient en courant et cherchaient des verges additionnelles. Grâce à  un pourcentage des passes complétées de 75 %, Maxime Trudeau avait établi un nouveau record de l'équipe midget pour le plus de verges par la passe dans un match avec 458, ainsi battant l'ancien record de 410 verges, établi en 2005 par Alex Houle.

Neuf joueurs différents avaient capté des passes, en commençant par le centre-arrière Alex Cronn qui avait attrapé une passe pour huit, Alexandre Normand, qui a capté quatre passes pour 89 verges et en finissant par Pier-Olivier Cherrier qui avait capté six passes pour 151 verges.

Au sol, quatre joueurs différents avaient cumulé des verges, en commençant par le receveur Christopher Minier qui a gagné cinq verges sur une portée, Trudeau qui en avait 36 verges sur 13 courses et Bryce Vieira qui avait ajouté 165 verges sur 17 courses. Son effort est devenu le 6-ème meilleur performance jamais pour l'équipe midget.

Comme preuve supplémentaire que cette victoire était un effort de l'équipe entière, dix-sept joueurs différents ont fait des contributions à  la défense. Nicholas Gagnon-Parsons et Jesse Walsh avaient fait le plus de plaqués tandis que Christopher Blair, Walsh et Sébastien Blair avaient chacun fait une interception tandis que Codey Daly en avait deux. Nicolas Lefebvre avait recouvré un échappé.

Le défi pour l'équipe midget maintenant est de ne pas lâcher, de ne pas prendre pour acquis n'importe quel adversaire et de jouer avec la même détermination et l'intensité en route vers la Coupe Jack Simpson. Peu importe si vous battiez une équipe 50 à  0. Tant que vous le faites avec de la classe et avec respect, ils apprécieront les leçons apprises. Une dernière remarque à  propos des Rhinos: ils avaient, eux aussi, l'esprit de records parce que c'était la première fois qu'un adversaire de l'équipe midget avait joué un match complet sans avoir subi pénalités, que ce soit en attaque ou en défense. (À fin d'être précis, les Rhinos se sont fait signalés à  quelques reprises pour «non-respect de l'immunité Â» sur les retours de bottés de dégagement, mais ces pénalités avaient été refusés alors elles ne comptent pas).
If the midget team plays the same way for the rest of the season they could beat any team in the league.The film of this game should be locked in a vault and used for instructional purposes by other teams that want to get better.

The midget Stallions' win was a case study of a clinical, technical and methodical deconstruction of an opponent. However, unlike the junior team's game against Ottawa, it was done with class and there was nothing cheap about it. They did not win because they played a bad team. On the contrary, the Rhinos have many competent and talented players who made many good plays, especially on defense, but the Stallions had a better game plan and they executed it perfectly, starting with the quarterback who stayed in the pocket, calmly surveyed the field and threw measured strikes to receivers who would catch the ball in stride and go for extra yards. Thanks to the 75% completion ratio, Maxime Trudeau established a new midget team record for most passing yards in a game with 458, beating the old record of 410 yards set in 2005 by Alex Houle.

Nine different players caught passes, starting with fullback Alex Cronn who gained eight yards on one catch, Alexandre Normand who caught four passes for 89 yards and finishing with Pier-Olivier Cherrier who contributed 151 yards on six catches.

On the ground, four different players gained yards carrying the ball, starting with wide receiver Christopher Minier who gained five yards on one rush, Trudeau who had 36 yards on 13 carries and Bryce Vieira who added 165 yards on 17 carries, which made it the 6-th best rushing effort in a game ever for the midget team.

As further proof of how much this win was a complete team effort, seventeen different players contributed defensively. Nicholas Gagnon-Parsons and Jesse Walsh made the most tackles while Christopher Blair, Walsh and Sébastien Blair each had an interception whereas Codey Daly had two. Nicholas Lefebvre recovered a fumble.

The challenge now is not to let up, not to take any opponent for granted and to play with the same determination and intensity all the way to the Jack Simpson Cup game. It doesn't matter if you beat a team 50-0. As long as you do it with class and with respect, they will appreciate the lessons learned.
One final note about the Rhinos: they also got into the record setting spirit because it was the first time ever that an opponent of the Stallions midget team played a complete game without getting any penalties, whether on offense or defense. (For the sake of accuracy, the Rhinos were flagged a couple of times for 'no-yards' on punt returns but those penalties were declined so they do not count).

The Stallions bantam team's loss to the Wildcats eliminated the last faint hope they had of avoiding relegation to the lower division for the next season. The only remaining question is whether they will finish 7-th and face the Sun Youth Hornets in the playoffs or 8-th and meet the North Shore Lions.

Despite having a credible running threat, Stallions offense remains inefective because the passing game still requires a lot of work before it can become productive. Throwing five interceptions and completing only one out of every four passes is not a recipe for a win. The defense certainly did its job by forcing a turnover in each quarter but the offense was not able to capitalize on them.

The players who stood out on defense were Quaid Johnson, Jérémy Comeau, Sébastien Poirier and Olivier Côté-du Sablon who led with the most tackles. Côté-du Sablon, #74, Jordan Lavery and Esrom Beckley-Delaleu combined on three QB sacks while Comeau and #74 each recovered a fumble. Comeau also made an interception.

The following article appeared in the Hudson Gazette:

ST. LAZARE - The 2009 Bantam Stallions finished with an impressive 7-3 season, graduating a great many players to the midget level, leaving only a handful of 2010 veterans to defend St. Lazare's position in the prestigious and fiercely competitive Bill Allan division.
That shortage was obvious as the Bantams lost 36-14 on Saturday to the Laurentian Wildcats, but in the big picture the loss is insignificant. The character displayed is what is relevant. The Stallions were clearly disadvantaged, having fewer veterans, but the veterans they do have are outstanding. At the helm of the Stallion offence, displaying exceptional quarterback mechanics, is Quaid Johnson. Midway through the second quarter, Quaid's athleticism influenced most of the Wildcat defenders in the wrong direction with a beautiful fake, allowing Kevin Cronn to easily run into the end zone for their first touchdown.
Quaid's talent didn't end there. He got his nose dirty all game long making big stops on special teams and defense from the linebacker position.
Ryan Dickson was the workhorse on offence from the ground. Dickson ran like a truck and had two spectacular gains down the near sideline, first sidestepping, then straight-arming and finally running over defenders to set up the Stallions first touchdown and scoring their second. Dickson also made significant contributions on defense at linebacker.
Kevin Cronn was everywhere, making fans wonder if there were two players with the number 36 Stallions jersey. Patrick Giroux and Simon Duhaime also made large contributions on both sides of the ball. The Stallion veterans were on the field for most of the entire 60 minutes. They led by example, and played their hearts out bringing 'game' right down to the end, never letting up. Their leadership elevated the play of the entire team.
The civil code defines the age of maturity to be 18. I would argue the Quebec Bantam Football League defies this standard, proving Mother Nature to be indifferent. Somewhere in the two years of carpooling her young teens from home to the practice field, a mother will begin to notice her little boy has become unrecognizable. It is in the transition from age 14 to 15 these physical changes are most apparent. These young boys turned men can easily be spotted from the sidelines or the stands. At 15, these boys are suddenly visibly bigger, stronger, faster, and more aggressive. In Bantam level football, boys physically grow into men. Testosterone rules the day. The veteran members welcome their younger counterparts into this new fraternity starting at training camp by violently sending them to the turf with a jarring helmet to the chin as initiation, separating those who want to play football from those who merely think they do.
To those who have played, the game begins to take on a more significant meaning. Tackling becomes hitting and an inside running play becomes smash mouth, snot nose football. The program with the greatest number of experienced veteran players will have the clear advantage. Coaches will do their best to transcend this advantage, but biology is biology. Back to last weekend's game: True character is revealed in the face of adversity. The character demonstrated by the Bantams team was nothing short of inspiring, leaving Investors Group at least two awards shy of properly recognizing outstanding contribution. Stallions fans are proud to have these young men as ambassadors of our communities.

Le décès de George Miller / The passing of George Miller

Je viens de remarquer sur le site Footbec.com qu'on a annoncé que George Miller, membre du comité exécutif de la LFMQ et son ancien président, est décédé aujourd'hui après un combat déterminé contre le cancer.

J'ai des trés bons souvenirs de M. Miller, car en 2005, lorsque j'était le gérant de l'équipe midget et je devais comparaître devant le comité disciplinaire de la ligue pour avoir envoyé par
courriel une plainte à  Football Québec, il était la seule personne qui m'avait offert un peu de compassion et de compréhension.

Son attitude d'équité et de respect nous manquera
beaucoup.

Mes sincères condoléances à  toute la famille Miller.
On the Footbec.com website it has been reported that George Miller, a member of the QMFL executive committee and its former president, passed away today after a determined battle with cancer.

I have particularly fond memories of Mr. Miller because in 2005 when I was managing the midget team and I had to appear in front of the midget league's disciplinary committee for sending a complaint e-mail to Football Quebec, he was the only one who showed some compassion and understanding.

His attitude of fairness and respect will be sorely missed.

My sincere condolences to the entire Miller family.

La traduction est en cours. Désolé. The junior team did not win the game against the Chateauguay Raiders but they certainly deserve credit for a moral victory for the way the came back from being 26 points behind at the half and put themselves in a legitimate position to win, only to run out of time and, to a small degree, luck. This should give them the confidence they need to face the Ottawa Jr. Riders next week.

Two different Stallions junior teams reported for duty at the Westwood Jr. field. One of them was the bad, first half team that could not complete a pass, gained only 67 yards rushing and whose defense appeared unable to stop Chateauguay's running play. Luckily, they were able to capitalize on some major penalties by the Raiders defense and scored a TD on a 1-yd run b y Chris McCarthy with 2:13 left to play in the first half.

The other one was the good second half team that took control of the game, did not allow the Raiders offense to score any points while limiting them to only 100 yards and whose offense was able to move the ball and score some points.

Things looked bleak when the Raiders scored two TDs in the last two minutes of the first half to take a 32-6 lead but Stallions started chipping away in the second half. McCarthy scored his second TD of the game on another 1-yd run. Then, in the 4-th quarter, he scored again to make it 34-20 and when Alex Lamarche caught a 22-yd TD pass with 2:48 left to play that brought the Stallions within one touchdown it looked like it was only a matter of time before Stallions would tie the game. Unfortunately, Raiders were able to get a few first downs and run down the clock. They also got an incredibly lucky bounce with only about 30 seconds left to play. After a handoff, their running back was tackled behind the line of scrimmage at mid field, the ball was fumbled but it bounced right to the Chateauguay QB who scrambled and threw a 28-yd pass for another 1-st down. After that, they were able to run out the clock. On offense, Chris McCarthy once again stood out with 118 rushing yards on 19 carries.

On defense, Alex Lewis and Corey Pascal each had an interception while Charles-Olivier Conway had a QB sack. Jordan Jasiukajc, Sam Hansen and Andrew Palmer combined for 4 blocked kicks. Kevin Lockhead-Morin, Nick Lux, Palmer and Hansen were the leading tacklers.

La traduction est en cours. Désolé. The Stallions may not like me for saying this but it has to be said because as Peter de Lorenzo says on his auto industry website, it's the bare-knuckled, unvarnished, high-octane truth - the Stallions midget team does not have the killer instinct.

They do not know how to finish their opponent. They had a chance to seal the victory last night in St-Laurent but instead they gave the ball away to their opponents who did not waste the opportunity and scored the winning TD with only 2 seconds left to play.

The St-Laurent Spartans used the football equivalent of Mohammed Ali's "rope-a-dope" strategy to stay in the game long enough to have a chance to win. Just like Ali, who may have been behind on points in many fights, they waited until the right moment to throw a surprise right hook to the jaw and knock the Stallions out.

How ironic that for the first 59 minutes and 58 seconds the Spartans were only able to complete one pass for a grand total of 8 yards but on the last play of the game they used play action that had their star running back (#23) throwing a ball 26 yards into the end zone to a wide-open receiver.

After scoring the go-ahead TD on a 21-yd run by Alex Cronn with 8:11 left to play, Stallions got the ball back again at mid-field with 6:50 left on the clock but they punted after three plays. Then, they got the ball back again with 4:01 to play after an interception by Julian Mangan at the Spartans' 43-yd line but once again they gave it away, this time on an interception. It looked like they did not want to score anymore and were content to just sit and protect their lead.

Spartans, on the other hand, went on offense with 2:53 left starting from their own 35-yd line and they used eight consecutive rushing plays to get to the Stallions' 26-yd line with less than 20 seconds left to play. Spectators were surprised that they were not in a hurry to make a play and that the clock might run out but they quickly understood that the Spartans were simply going to lay everything on the line on one last play and ensure that there would be no time left for the Stallions to make a comeback. With less than 10 seconds left to play the quarterback handed the ball off to #23 who started to run towards the outside, then suddenly planted his feet and threw a strike to his team mate waiting in the end zone. Euphoria on the Spartans side, shock and disbelief on the Stallions side. That, right there, was the right hook to the jaw that the Spartans were waiting all game long to deliver and they executed it perfectly. The lesson for the Stallions midget team, and any other team that wants to learn from their experience, is that when you have your opponent on the ropes and reeling you have to finish him off right there and then.

Bryce Vieira was back from injury and contributed with 77 yards on 15 carries while Alex Cronn had 55 yards on 13 carries. Maxime Trudeau contributed on offense as the QB but also on defense as a linebacker, making six tackles and one sack of the St-Laurent QB. Other players who stood out on defense were Julian Mangan, Christopher Blair and Codey Daly who each made an interception as well as Maxime Latour and Jean-Danny Chouinard who each had a sack. Alexandre Cloutier and Brandon Malone contributed with solid tackling and a fumble recovery for Cloutier.

(PDF 53 k)

La traduction est en cours. Désolé. About 30 dignitaries and 600 spectators attended the official inauguration of the new soccer/football/flag football stadium facility at the Valleyfield CEGEP. The guests of honor included the provincial Minister of Tourism as well as local MNAs, school board chairs, the CEGEP president and members of the administrative council as well as the mayor of Valleyfield. Although more work needs to be done, the facility is fully functional and it is quite impressive.

According to the announcements made at the ceremony, the provincial and federal governments each contributed over $500,000 to the project. It only goes to show that money is available for these kinds of facilities and all you have to do is make an application. This is free advise to mayor Pierre Kary of St-Lazare.

Several former Stallions, including Alexandre Arystil, Alexandre Chevrier and Olivier Laberge-Allard, played for Valleyfield and had an impact on the game. The game itself was decided by half-time as the Noir et Or were completely in control. They used a good mix or runs and passes and generated over 200 yards of offense by then. Outaouais, on the other hand, relied heavily on passing but were only able to complete four passes and had less than 40 yards of offense in the first half.

Unfortunately, the football game, the nice facilities, the ceremonies and all the good things that happened at that game were completely overshadowed by something that normally should add to the overall experience. It was the music that was played during the event. Instead of adding something positive to the experience it almost destroyed it.

Mind you, I am a huge proponent of music being played during football games. However, it must be music that is appropriate for the ocassion. The DJ must ask him or herself: for whom is the music being played?. It is certainly not for the players because their attention is focused on the action on the field. It must be for the spectators. Who are the spectators? It is mostly the parents, siblings and some friends or schoolmates of the players. What kind of music do these people listen to? I know for sure that they do not listen to gangster rap. They don't even know what rap is. For them, it might just as well be a type of sandwich. It was very difficult to sit in the stands and hear the sexist and racist lyrics with f**k and n****r mentioned every 10 seconds. Yes, I know, it's art but it's art that is created with the purpose of shocking the listener and it certainly achieved that because people were shocked. I wonder if the minister of tourism heard the music and what was her reaction. I will be contacting Valleyfield CEGEP about this subject and it will be interesting to see how they respond.

In the meantime, for any DJ who is willing to take some advice, here are some rules about playing music during football games:
  1. play the appropriate type of music. When choosing a song ask yourself this question: if you went to an Alouettes game, do you think they would play the song that you want to play? If you don't think that the Alouettes would use it then you should not use it either
  2. music must stop when the team on offense breaks the huddle, not when they are at the line of scrimmage ready to snap the ball
  3. music must also stop when the announcer is trying to make an announcement to the spectators
  4. pick songs that are appropriate for the game situation. For example, play "Oh what a feeling" by Crowbar after a long TD pass. Or "Can't touch this" by MC Hammer after a long running play. Or "I won't back down" by Tom Petty when the visiting team is at the 1-yd line. Or "Somebody bring me some water" by Melissa Etheridge when there is a time-out. Or "Hold your head up" by Argent when your team loses a tough game. I got a whole list of these. If you're interested, contact me. By associating specific music with a game situation people will remember it better. C'mon, be imaginative. Use that noodle in your scull for something useful.
Valleyfield CEGEP is not the only place where I have heard this type of offensive music being played. I have also heard it in St-Leonard during bantam games a couple of years ago. I had sent an e-mail to the league president and to the St-Leonard Cougars organisation at that time but I never received any reply. I have not been there since (except for the Jack Simpson Cup game last year) so I don't know if they made any changes. I sure hope they did and I sure hope that Valleyfield CEGEP will make some changes.

La traduction est en cours. Désolé. The more this year's edition of the junior team plays the more it starts to resemble the 2004 bantam team, not only from the point of view of the player roster but also from the way its season is unfolding. In 2004 the bantam team started with a loss to the St-Leonard Cougars before going on a 10-game win streak. The pivotal moment that year was the game against Sun Youth which the Stallions won 14-0.

I don't want to jinx anything but the upcoming game against the Chateauguay Raiders is shaping up to be similar in terms of its significance to that memorable game against the Hornets.

Compared to the previous game against the Devils, the St-Lazare players looked like a completely different team, especially on defense. While the offense was good enough to score more than enough points to win the game, largely thanks to Chris McCarthy's 106-yd, three TD effort, the defense was in complete control. McCarthy can now boast of having an average of 99 rushing yards per game half way through the regular season.
The defense penetrated the line of scrimmage and limited the Devils ground game to just two yards of net gains.
Also, being true to the old adage that if they don't have the ball they can't score, Stallions held a clear advantage over the Devils in terms of time of possession. They had the ball for 33:38 minutes while Laval only had it for 16:22 minutes.

Kevin Lockhead-Morin led the defensive effort with three sacks and 10.5 tackles. Jordan Jasiukajc, Charles-Olivier Conway and Alexandre Daigle also helped out with one sack each while Sam Hansen had an interception and Shakeel D'Aguiar had two. Andrew Palmer contributed four tackles.

La traduction est en cours. Désolé. If the bantam team could play an entire game the way the played during the first 10 minutes they would be just as successful as the 2009 team.
They took an early 2-0 lead when Quaid Johnson, playing on defense, tackled the St-Laurent QB in the end zone but when the Spartans scored a TD on a 75-yd catch-and-run play on their next possession, both the defense and the offense stopped playing.
The visitors scored again a few plays later when they intercepted a pass and ran it into the Stallions' end zone.

In the end, St-Lazare defense and offense were equally responsible for the loss because the Spartans scored four TDs against the Stallions' defense and threee against the offense. The few bright spots were Troy Rothdram, who played QB in the 4-th quarter and completed five of the seven passes that he threw for 32 yards and Kevin Cronn who gained 52 yards on 16 carries and recovered a fumble while playing on defense. Quaid Johnson stood out on defense by making five tackles.

La traduction est en cours. Désolé. I went to the game because it involved two schools that I attended long time ago (talk about conflicting loyalties :-) but also because it was an opportunity to see a couple of former Stallions players in action. Unfortunately, the action part did not materialize because Gianni Settino (2008 Stallions junior team QB) was on clipboard duty for the Redmen while Matthew Horne (Stallions pee-wee 2001 to midget 2006) was not dressed for the Stingers.

During the first three quarters of the annual Shaughnessy Cup game it looked like McGill were finally going to break Concordia's 10-game winning streak in their head-to-head matches, a dominance that goes back to the 2003 season. The McGill Redmen tok a 7-0 lead thanks to a TD on the opening kickoff, were up 24-13 at the end of three quarters and seemed to be in control of the game.

Then, starting in the 4-th quarter, things turned completely around, in particular on special teams. While Concordia was starting to get good yardage on kick returns McGill's returns dwindled. Also, Concordia's running game started to work and McGill defense was looking tired and the Stingers tied the game up 27-27 with 3:47 left to play. While they ran the ball only 7 times during the first 45 minutes, the Stingers used the ground attack with a lot of success 10 times in the last quarter.
When McGill's offense took to the field after the tying score they went two-and-out and Concordia then took the lead for the first time when
Kris Robertson returned a punt 61 yards into the end zone.

Stingers nearly gave the victory away when they tried to run down the clock as much as possible by having Liam Mahoney run around in the end zone for about 5 seconds until finally conceding a safety. McGill's offense then got all the way to the Concordia 1-yd line with about 15 seconds left to play, partly thanks to two Concordia pass interference penalties, but then they tried to punch it in by running up the middle twice, only to be pushed back by the Stinger defense, and McGill's chances of winning finally evaporated when a pass into the end zone was deflected and intercepted by Concordia's Kyle Smith.

It was a very exciting and interesting game and with the atmosphere at the stadium I recommend it to everyone to go see a university football game at the earliest opportunity.
The cost of admission is only $10 for adults and $5 for students of any school.

Après quelques tentatives timides au début du match, l'offensif des Stallions avaient commencé à  marquer des points avec un touché sur une passe suivie d'une course de 79 verges de Chris McCarthy après à  peine neuf minutes écoulées au 1-er quart, pour ensuite emporter une victoire facile de 47 à  0.

Quatre joueurs différents avaient marqué des touchés, mais le joueur qui avait marqué plus des points était le botteur Alex Lewis, qui avait cumulé 13 points avec deux bottés de placement, cinq convertis et deux simples.

La défense, quant à  elle, avait aussi très bien joué, comme peut témoigner le fait que l'attaque des Monarx restait toujours de leur côté du terrain pendant toute la moitié 1-ère moitié du match tout en permettant que deux premiers essais durant cette période. Le plus proche que les Monarx sont venus à  marquer quelques points était au début du 4-ème quart quand ils sont arrivés à  la ligne de 10 verges des Stallions, mais un sac du quart-arrière fait par Julien Allaire et Charles-Olivier Conway sur un 3-ème essai avait éteint le menace.

À l'attaque, Chris McCarthy avait cumulé 178 verges (99 verges sur 10 courses et 79 verges par la passe), tandis que Nick Lux en avait 58 verges sur 12 portées, Dan White avait 37 verges sur sept courses et le QB Maxim Bourgon avait contribué 33 verges sur seulement deux portées.

À la défense, Corey Pascal et Édouard-Philippe Conway avaient chacun fait une interception, Andrew Palmer avait recouvré un échappé tandis que Nick Lux en avait récupéré trois. Kevin Lockhead-Morin, Julien Allaire et Charles-Olivier Conway ensemble avaient réussi quatre sacs. Les meilleurs plaqueurs étaient Kevin Lockhead-Morin et le duo des frères E-P et C-O Conway.
After a timid start of the game, Stallions offense opened the flood gates with a 79-yd catch-and-run touchdown by Chris McCarthy just past the nine minute mark of the 1-st quarter and then cruised to a 47-0 win.

Four different players scored touchdowns but the leading scorer was kicker Alex Lewis who accumulated 13 points thanks to two field goals, five converts and two singles.

Defense played very well, keeping the Monarx pinned on their side of the field for the entire 1-st half of the game while allowing only two first downs during that time. The closest the Monarx came to scoring some points was at the start of the 4-th quarter when they got to the Stallions 10-yd line but a QB sack by Julien Allaire and Charles-Olivier Conway on a 3-rd down play extinguished the threat.

On offense, Chris McCarthy gained 178 yards (99 yards on 10 carries and 79 yards catching) while Nick Lux had 58 on 12 carries, Dan White had 37 on seven carries and QB Maxim Bourgon had 33 on just two rushes.

On defense, Corey Pascal and Édouard-Philippe Conway each had an interception, Andrew Palmer recovered a fumble while Nick Lux recovered three. Kevin Lockhead-Morin, Julien Allaire and Charles-Olivier Conway combined to make four sacks. Leading tacklers were Kevin Lockhead-Morin and the brother duo of E-P and C-O Conway.

Si on peut identifier quelques éléments positifs de la défaite de l'équipe midget contre les Vicas de Victoriaville, c'est qu'elle aurait dû préparer les Stallions bien pour le prochain match contre les Dragons de la Beauce. L'attaque des Dragons est très forte au sol, comme en témoignent les 350+ verges gagnés par la course contre les Cougars de Lakeshore, et c'est exactement la même stratégie que les Vicas avaient utilisé pour battre les Stallions. Ils avaient porté le ballon 43 fois pour 388 verges.

Jimmy Clobert-Côté, leur joueur n ° 9, était responsable pour 311 de ces verges sur 33 portées de ballon, dont trois de 68 verges ou plus. Deux de ces longues courses étaient les premiers jeux exécutés par les Vicas au début de la 2-ème moitié et chacun d'eux s'est abouti dans la zone des buts. Ce fut le point tournant du match. Victoriaville avait pris le contrôle du match et les Stallions devaient se battre fort pour rester compétitif.

Après le match, j'ai parlé à  quelques parents qui étaient très déçus par un jeu particulier au cours du 2-ème quart. C'était quand les Stallions avaient essayé d'obtenir une 1-er jeu dans une situation de 4-ème essai et trois verges à  faire à  leur propre de 28 verges. Je suis d'accord que le jeu que les Stallions avaient choisi (une remise du ballon au centre-arrière et une course au milieu) avait très peu de chance de réussir et j'aurais plutôt préféré un jeu avec des options pour le quart-arrière de courir ou de passer. En fin compte, l'offensif des Stallions n'avait pas obtenu le 1-er essai, les Vicas sont allés ensuite en attaque et ils avaient simplement remis le ballon à  Jimmy Clobert-Côté six fois de suite pour ainsi marquer un touché et créer une égalité 14 à  14. Les parents auxquels j'avais parlé pensaient que le pari au 4-ème essai était le point tournant du match, mais je ne suis pas d'accord car je pense que, en général, c'est une bonne stratégie d'y aller sur un 4-ème essai. Il y a une équipe scolaire au Texas qui a développé une stratégie offensive basée sur ce principe et si vous voulez en savoir plus à  propos de ce sujet alors je vous suggère de lire cet article.

Il est facile à  comprendre que la plupart des gens préfèrent dégager le ballon au 4-ème essai parce qu'elle nous fait sentir plus sécuritaire. Cependant, il y a de nombreux désavantages que l'on peut identifier sur les dégagements (par exemple, beaucoup de blessures arrivent au cours de jeux des unités spéciales) et le fait que la différence entre la position sur le terrain de l'équipe adverse après un échec de 4-ème essai et sa position sur le terrain après un retour d'un botté de dégagement est habituellement très faible, dans l'ordre de 10-15 verges.

En fin de compte, l'absence de plusieurs joueurs clés avait définitivement fait mal aux Stallions. Je ne sais pas si des joueurs manquaient également aux Vicas, mais le match entier s'est transformé effectivement en une bousculade entre Maxime Trudeau des Stallions (120 verges sur 14 portées) et Jimmy Clobert-Côté des Vicas. Le premier avait marqué trois touchés et 21 points tandis que le second avait marqué quatre touchés et 27 points.

À la défense, les joueurs qui se sont démarqués pour les Stallions étaient Jonathan Bondy, Olivier Leclerc et Brandon Malone (qui avait aussi bloqué un botté de transformation) qui avaient réussi deux sacs et Alexandre Cloutier, qui a effectué une interception. Bondy, Leclerc, Malone et Codey Daly étaient les meilleurs plaqueurs.
If there is a silver lining somewhere in the loss to the Victoriaville Vicas then it must be that it should prepare the Stallions midget team well for the upcoming game against the Beauce Dragons. The Dragons like to run the ball, as evidenced by their 350+ yards effort against the Lakeshore Cougars, and that's exactly the same strategy that the Vicas used to beat the Stallions. They caried the ball 43 times and gained 388 yards on the ground.

Jimmy Clobert-Côté, their player #9, was responsible for 311 of those yards on 33 carries, three of which were for 68 yards or more. Two of those long runs were the first two plays that the Vicas executed at the start of the 2-nd half and both of them resulted in touchdowns. That was the turning point of the game. Victoriaville took a control of the match and Stallions had to fight hard to get back in it.

I talked to some parents after the game and they were very upset about a play in the 2-nd quarter when Stallions tried to get a 1-st down in a 4-th down and three yards to go situation at their own 28-yd line. I agree that the play that the Stallions chose (handing the ball off to the fullback and running up the middle) was very unlikely to succeed and I would have rather seen them use some kind of play action that gave the QB some options to either run or to pass. As it turned out, Stallions offense did not get the 1-st down, turned the ball over and the Vicas then handed the ball off to Jimmy Clobert-Côté six times in a row and scored a TD to tie the game at 14-14.
They thought that the 4-th down gamble was the turning point of the game but I disagree because I think that, in general, it is a good strategy to go for it on 4-th down. There is a high school team in Texas that bases their offense on this strategy and if you like to find out more about it then you could read this article.

It is understandable that most people prefer to punt on a 4-th down because it looks like a safe strategy to use. However, there are many disadvantages to punting such as the increased risk of injuries (a lot of injuries happen on special team plays, like punts and punt returns) and the fact that the opposing team's field position after a failed 4-th down compared to its field position after a punt return is usually very small, in the order of 10-15 yards.

In the end, the absence of several key players definitely hurt the Stallions. I don't know if the Vicas were also missing some players but the game effectively became a tug of war between the Stallions' Maxime Trudeau (120 rushing yards on 14 carries) and the Vicas' Jimmy Clobert-Côté. The first one scored three TDs and 21 points while the second one scored four TDs and 27 points.

On defense, the players who stood out for the Stallions were Jonathan Bondy, Olivier Leclerc and Brandon Malone (also blocked a convert kick) who combined on two sacks and Alexandre Cloutier who had an interception. Bondy, Leclerc, Malone and Codey Daly were the leading tacklers.

L'événement du Jour MEGA/IGA était un grand succès. Il faisait beau et les quelques goutes de pluie qui sont tombées avaient un impact positif parce qu'elles avaient presque éliminé la poussière. C'était très sympa d'avoir de la musique au cours de la journée. On espère qu'elle sera présente pendant d'autres parties parce qu'elle fait toute une diférence.

Voici quelques photos prises durant l'événement .
The 2010 MEGA/IGA Day event was a big success. The weather cooperated and the occasional few drops of rain were very beneficial because they kept the dust down. It was certainly very nice to have some music. Hopefully the music will be provided during future games because it makes a huge difference in the atmosphere at the park.

Après une absence de 39 ans, le football est de retour au CEGEP Ahuntsic et il semblait que la nouvelle équipe a simplement continué là  o๠l'ancienne équipe avait terminé. Le dernier match en 1971 fut une victoire au Bol d'Or et le premier match en 2010 s'est avéré une autre victoire.

Marcel Plouffe, le quart-arrière de l'équipe de 1971 était sur place pour une cérémonie de la passe de transition avant le début de la partie et ceci semblait d'avoir inspiré les Indiens, le nom que l'on utilise pour les équipes sportives du CEGEP Ahuntsic, à  marquer sur leur première série offensive grâce aux trois passes complétées consécutives. Sur la série offensive suivante, ils se sont rendus à  la ligne de neuf verges de St-Jérôme mais ils avaient dû se contenter d'un botté de placement.

Après cela, les équipes ont joué principalement au milieu du terrain jusqu'à  la fin du 2-eme quart quand Ahuntsic avait marqué un autre touché pour prendre une avance de 15-0 à  mi-temps. Rien n'avait changé jusqu'à  la fin du match quand il n'y avait que deux minutes à  jouer. À ce moment Ahuntsic avait pris une décision très courageuse et au lieu de dégager le ballon au 4-ème essai à  28 verges de leur zone des buts ils avaient tenté de gagné le premier jeu. La stratégie avait échoué, l'équipe de St-Jérôme avait pris le ballon et elle avait marqué un touché pour réduire l'écart à  15-9, mais c'était la bonne décision dans cette situation parce qu'elle aurait permis à  Ahuntsic de garder le ballon jusqu'à  la fin de la partie. J'espère qu'ils vont utiliser la même stratégie dans l'avenir.

St-Jérôme avait réussi d'entamer une autre série offensive depuis la ligne de 53 verges d'Ahuntsic avec 56 secondes à  jouer, mais ils n'avaient lancé que quatre passes incomplètes lesquelles avaient fait épuiser que 20 secondes et ils ont concédé le ballon aux Indiens. L'ancien Stallion Maxim Gauthier avait capté trois de cinq passes qu'on lui avait lancées et il avait cumulé 31 verges.

On peut trouver d'autres rapports sur ce match ici et ici.
After a 39-year absence, football was back at CEGEP Ahuntsic and it looked like the team picked things up just where they left off. Their last game in 1971 was a win in the Bol d'Or and the first game in 2010 turned out to be another win.

Marcel Plouffe, the quarterback from the 1971 team was on hand to throw a ceremonial 'transition' pass before the start of the game and it seemed to inspire the Indians, as the team is called, to score on their opening offensive drive thanks to three complete passes in a row. On their next drive they got to the St-Jerome 9-yd line but had to settle for a field goal.

After that, the teams played mostly in the middle of the field until the end of the 1-st half when Ahuntsic scored another TD and had a 15-0 half time lead. Things stayed the same way until there were 2 minutes left in the game when Ahuntsic made a very gutsy decision and instead of punting went for it on 4-th down and ½ yard to go at their own 28-yd line. The gumble failed, St-Jerome got the ball and scored a TD to make it 15-9 but it was the right decision because the best chance for a win was to prevent St-Jerome from scoring by keeping the ball. I would love to see more teams use this type of strategy and I hope that Ahuntsic will use it in the future.

St-Jerome managed to get the ball back again at the Ahuntsic 53-yd line with 56 seconds left to play but they only threw four incomplete passes that used up 20 seconds and they turned the ball over on downs. Former Stallion Maxim Gauthier caught three of the five passes that were thrown to him and gained 31 yards.

Les Stallions midget se sont trouvés derrière leurs adversaires au début du match, mais ils avaient ensuite marqué trois touchés pour prendre le contrôle du match. Le point tournant de la partie est arrivé après le touché égalisateur des Stallions sur un retour de botté d'envoi de 86 verges de Jesse Walsh. Sur la série offensive suivante des Pirates, Joliette avait obtenue un 1-er essai à  la ligne cinq verges, mais la défense des Stallions avait provoqué un revirement pour le nombre d'essais à  quelques pouces de la ligne de but.

Au début du 3-ème quart Joliette avait réduit l'écart à  20-14, mais la défense des Stallions les avait empêché de marquer d'autres points grâce aux quatre revirements.

Beaucoup de joueurs se sont illustrés sur l'offensif dont le quart-arrière Maxime Trudeau qui avait cumulé 258 verges par la passe (18 passes complétées, 31 tentatives, aucune interception), en plus de ses 62 verges en 13 courses, Bryce Vieira (82 verges en 11 portées et 37 verges sur 5 passes captées), Christopher Minier (3 passes captées pour 87 verges) et Pierre-Olivier Cherrier (97 verges sur 6 réceptions).

À la défense, James Betz-Gray et Brandon Malone avaient chacune fait une interception lorsque Alex Cloutier avait fait un sac du quart. Les meilleurs plaqueurs étaient Alex Cloutier, Jesse Walsh et Codey Daly.
The midget Stallions got behind early but then scored three touchdowns to take control of the game. The turning point occurred right after Stallions tied the game with a TD on an 86-yd kickoff return by Jesse Walsh. On the ensuing Pirates offensive drive, Joliette had a 1-st down at the 5-yd line but Stallions defense caused a turnover on downs just inches from the goal line.

Joliette scored at the start of the 3-rd quarter to make it 20-14 but Stallions defense prevented any more scoring by creating four turnovers.

Many players stood out on offense including QB Maxime Trudeau who gained 258 passing yards on 18 completed passes (31 attempts, no interceptions) in addition to 62 yards on 13 carries, Bryce Vieira (82 yards on 11 carries and 37 yards on 5 catches), Christopher Minier (3 catches for 87 yards) and Pierre-Olivier Cherrier (97 yards on 6 catches).

On defense, James Betz-Gray and Brandon Malone each stood out with an interception and
Alex Cloutier with a sack. Leading tacklers were Alex Cloutier, Jesse Walsh and Codey Daly.

Les Stallions junior avaient marqué sur trois de leurs cinq premières séries offensives après lesquelles ils jouaient pour protéger leur première victoire de la saison. La météo avait une influence majeure à  cause des vents très forts qui avaient affecté les jeux par la passe tout le match et de fortes pluies qui se sont produits au cours de la seconde démi.

Plusieurs joueurs qui jouaient aux positions inhabituelles avaient fait des bonnes premières impressions. Nick Lux avait joué au cours de la seconde moitié comme porteur de ballon, ayant cumulé 67 verges sur 7 portées de ballon et il avait marqué un touché. Jerry Mangan avait joué comme receveur et il avait attrapé toutes les deux passes que l'on avait lancées vers lui pour 49 verges (ne croyez pas aux statistiques de la ligue). Jordan Jasiukajc avait temporairement pris la place de Alex Lewis à  la position du botteur et il avait obtenu un moyen de 38 berges sur les bottés d'envoi en plus d'avoir réussi toutes les quatre transformations.

Chris McCarthy avait joué comme il joue typiquement, car il avait marqué trois touchés et il avait gagné 58 verges en 13 portées du ballon malgré le fait qu'il n'avait travaillé que la moitié de la partie.

À la défense, Kévin Lockhed-Morin, Charles-Olivier Conway et Andrew Palmer avaient fait ensemble trois sacs du quart-arrière tandis que Clément Seguin s'est démarqué à  son retour au football avec un botté de transformation bloqué. Les plaqueurs les plus productifs étaient Kévin Lockhed-Morin, #20, Andrew Palmer et Jordan Jasiukajc.
The junior Stallions scored on three of their first five offensive drives and then coasted to their first win of the season. Weather had a major influence with very strong winds that affected the passing plays all game long and heavy rain that occurred during the second half.

Several players made good first impressions playing in new positions. Nick Lux played the second half mostly as a running back, gaining 67 yards on 7 carries and scoring one TD. Jerry Mangan played as a receiver and caught both passes that were thrown to him for 49 yards (don't believe what the league statistics indicate). Jordan Jasiukajc spared for Alex Lewis as the kicker and averaged 38 yards on kickoffs in addition to making all four converts.

Chris McCarthy had a Chris McCarthy type of day, scoring three TDs and gaining 58 yards on 13 carries although he only worked half the game.

On defense, Kévin Lockhed-Morin, Charles-Olivier Conway and Andrew Palmer combined to make three sacks while Clement Seguin made his return to active duty felt with a blocked convert kick. Leading tacklers were
Kévin Lockhed-Morin, #20, Andrew Palmer and Jordan Jasiukajc.

J'aurai jamais cru qu'il y avait une telle intense rivalité entre ces deux équipes, tant sur le terrain qu'au bord.
Au cours de la partie, toutes les deux équipes avaient commis plusieurs pénalités et de nombreux revirements. Mais, à  la fin, la différence était que les Citadins avaient su profiter des erreurs de ses adversaires lequel n'était pas le cas pour les Voltigeurs.

Evidemment, la plus grande différence était que les frères Alex et Serge Pilon jouaient pour les Citadins au lieu des Voltigeurs. Surtout Alex Pilon qui n'a pas ralenti depuis la saison dernière quand il jouait pour les Stallions bantam. Il avait marqué tous les quatre touchés de son équipe, dont un sur un retour d'un botté de dégagement de 100 verges.
I never expected such an intense rivalry between these two teams, both on the field and on the sidelines.
During the game, both teams committed many penalties and turnovers but what made the big difference was that the Citadins were able to capitalize on their opponents' mistakes and the Voltigeurs were not.

Of course, the other big difference was that the Citadins had Serge and Alex Pilon playing for them and not the Voltigeurs. Alex Pilon simply continued where he left off last season when he played on the Stallions bantam team and scored all four of his team's touchdowns, including one on a 100-yd punt return.
