(10 h) St-Leonard 6 vs Stallions Pee-wee 41
séries éliminatoires - Coupe des Anciens Alouettes / Alouettes Alumni Cup playoffs
(terrain/field: Westwood Jr. H.S., St-Lazare, QC)

Après avoir perdu 14 à 0 contre l'équipe de St-Léonard quatre semaines plus tôt, ce match éliminatoire contre les Cougars se promettait d'être une lutte serrée, mais en réalité elle n'était pas du tout comme ça. Les Stallions ont marqué de points à la fin de six de leurs 11 séries offensives en route vers une victoire facile de 42 à 6, un exploit qui leur avait permis d'avancer à la finale de la LFRM pour la Coupe des Anciens Alouettes contre les Western Patriots de L'Île-Perrot le week-end prochain.

Même si plusieurs de leurs joueurs clés jouaient des deux côtés du ballon, et avec 30 joueurs à l'alignement par rapport à 36 pour les Cougars, ceci n'avait pas empêché les Stallions de pouvoir faire des jeux tout au long du match pour mériter une victoire facile.

Les Stallions sont allés les premiers en attaque, mais ils ont rendu le ballon pour ne pas avoir gagné 10 verges à la ligne de 15 verges de St-Léonard. Cependant, ils ont ensuite limité les visiteurs à ne pas faire que trois jeux et de dégager le ballon. Le joueur C n ° 44 avait fait un botté de 30 verges, mais S n ° 29 avait ensuite retourné le ballon 20 verges jusqu'à la ligne de 30 verges des Cougars. Quatre jeux plus tard, S n ° 29 a mis les Stallions en avant 6 à 0 avec un touché sur une course de 18 verges (transformation de 2 points échouée). Alors que l'équipe de St-Leonard rendait le ballon, les Stallions en profitaient de ces opportunités et S n ° 2 et S n ° 29 ont chacun marqué un touché pour ainsi mettre St-Lazare en avant 21 à 0 à la pause de la mi-temps.

Le joueur S n ° 29 avait augmenté l'avantage des Stallions à 28-0 au début de la 2e demie avant que St-Léonard ait pu répondre avec un touché pour réduire l'écart à 28 à 6. Toutes les autres séries offensives des Cougars lors de la 2e demie se sont achevées par un revirement et les Stallions en ont pu profiter pour marquer deux autres touchés lesquels ont rendu la marque finale 41 à 6.
After losing to the St-Leonard team 14-0 four weeks earlier, this playoff game against the Cougars was setting up to be a close contest but it ended up being anything but that. Stallions scored on six of their 11 drives en route to an easy 42-6 victory, which allowed them to advance to the MRFL Alouettes Alumni Cup final against the Ile-Perrot Western Patriots next weekend.

Even though they had several key players playing on both sides of the ball, and with 30 players on the roster compared to 36 for the Cougars, Stallions kept making plays all game long for an easy win.

Stallions went on offense first but they turned the ball on downs at the St-Leonard 15-yd line. However, they then forced the visitors to go three-and-out and punt the ball away. C#44 kicked the ball 30 yards but S#29 returned it 20 yards to the Cougars 30-yd line. Four plays later, S#29 put the Stallions in front 6-0 with an 18-yd TD (2-pt convert failed). While St-Leonard were turning the ball over, Stallions were taking advantage of the opportunities and S#2 and S#29 each scored one TD to put St-Lazare in front 21-0 at the half time break.

S#29 increased that lead to 28-0 at the start of the 2nd half before St-Leonard was able to respond with a TD to narrow the gap to 28-6. All other offensive drives by the Cougars in the 2nd half ended in turnovers and Stallions were able to take advantage of two of them to score two more touchdowns to make the final score 41-6.

(14 h) Stallions Moustique 6 @ Chateauguay 50
séries éliminatoires - Coupe des Anciens Alouettes / Alouettes Alumni Cup playoffs
(terrain/field: Parc Joseph-Laberge, Chateauguay, QC)

Les Raiders de Châteauguay ont marqué un touché lors de sept de leurs neuf attaques pour ainsi éliminer les Stallions de St-Lazare des séries éliminatoires de la Coupe des Anciens Alouettes.

La plus grande différence entre ces deux équipes était dans leur exécution des jeux par la passe. Les Raiders ont complété 10 de leurs 18 tentatives de passes tandis que les Stallions étaient seulement capables de compléter une passe en 10 tentatives. Ce n'était juste que le quart des Raiders a su lancer le ballon, mais les receveurs ont pu l'attraper, même avec de défenseurs des Stallions tout près.

L'équipe locale avait monté rapidement en avant 20 à 0 au cours du 1er quart avant de rouler vers une victoire facile. Les Stallions ont conservé leur meilleur pour la fin du match quand ils ont marqué leurs seuls points suite à une attaque de six jeux sur 61 verges avec tout le temps écoulé sur le cadran.
The Chateauguay Raiders scored touchdowns on seven of their nine drives to eliminate the St-Lazare Stallions from the Alouettes Alumni Cup playoffs.

The biggest difference between these two teams was in their ability to pass the ball. The Raiders completed 10 of their 18 pass attempts while the Stallions were only able to complete one pass out of 10 attempts. Not only was the Raiders QB able to throw the ball but their receivers were able to catch it, even with Stallions defenders around them.

The home team built up a quick 20-0 lead in the 1st quarter and then cruised to an easy victory. Stallions saved their best for last and scored their only points on a 6-play, 61-yd drive with no time left on the clock.

(20 h) Cégep de Lanaudière 0 vs Valleyfield Noir et Or 63
séries éliminatoires - Bol d'Or div. 2 / div. 2 Gold Cup playoffs
(terrain/field: Cégep de Valleyfield, Valleyfield, QC)

séries éliminatoires - Bol d'Or div. 2 / div. 2 Gold Cup playoffs
(terrain/field: Memorial Field, John Abbott College, Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, QC)

La traduction est en cours. Désolé For the 2nd year in a row the Beauce-Appalaches Condors and the John Abbott College Islanders met in the first round of playoffs, both with the same records as a year ago, 7-2 for the Islanders and 4-5 for the Condors. However, unlike last season when John Abbott overcame an 18-2 deficit at half time to finally win the game 30-26 thanks to a 27-yd TD run by Quaid Johnson with less than two and a half minutes left to play, even though there were brief periods of time when they trailed the Condors, there wasn't really much doubt that the Islanders would prevail.

Their defense forced their opponents to work really hard for any points that they managed to score and the offense was able to move the ball in the air or on the ground almost at will. The Condors dominated on the stats sheet, with over 500 yards of net offense (461 for John Abbott), 28 first downs (14 for JAC) and over 45 minutes in time of possession but they only scored points on five of their 11 drives while the Islanders scored on six of their 10 drives.

The game didn't start well for the Islanders as the opening kickoff went out of bounds at the Condors 5-yd line, which resulted in the visitors starting 35 yards further down field. They then took nearly five minutes to move 70 yards in 10 plays to score a TD on an 8-yd run by C#35 and take the early 7-0 lead (C#36 convert kick). However, the next time they got the ball, their drive was cut short by an interception by I#6 at the Condors 29-yd line. Five plays later, I#21 scored a TD on a 4-yd run to even the score at 7-7 (I#12 convert kick).

The Condors responded with a field goal to take a 10-7 lead but the Islanders answered with two touchdowns by I#18 to go back in front 21-10 at the half time break.

At the start of the 2nd half, the Condors surprised the Islanders with a kickoff into no man's land around the 35-yd line and C#2 recovered the ball. They then took advantage of the good field position and only needed four plays to score a TD (C#6 9-yd run) to narrow the gap to 21-17. The Beauce team then took advantage of an interception by C#10 at the Abbott 50-yd line to go back in front 24-21 thanks to a TD by C#4 on a 57-yd catch but the lead lasted less than two minutes. The Islanders scored touchdowns on their next three possessions to take a 42-21 lead that they would not relinquish.

Two former Stallions made important contributions to the winning effort. Aaron Campbell made a 10-yd catch for a first down on one of Islanders scoring drives while Jeremy Comeau made a 22-yd catch for a first down on another scoring drive. However, Comeau perhaps helped the Islanders' cause a lot more with a catch that he didn't make. Early in the 3rd quarter a pass from Adam Sinagra intended for him had missed the target and C#10 appeared ready to make an interception. Seeing what was about to happen, Comeau laid a hit on the Condors defender that rivaled some of the best ones that Maxime Trudeau ever served on opposing players who had the temerity to intercept one of his passes. The ball was jarred loose and the Islanders offensive drive continued. The Islanders will now travel back to St-Jean-sur-Richelieu where they defeated les Géants during the regular season to play in the Bol d'Or semi final.

There are two other reports on this game on the www.versusquebec.com website. One of the reports is here and the other one is here.

(12 h) St-Hubert 13 vs Stallions Bantam 48
séries éliminatoires - Coupe LFBQ / QBFL Cup playoffs
(terrain/field: Westwood Jr. H.S., St-Lazare, QC)

2015-11-01_Stallions_bantam_game_stats_bis.gif
La traduction est en cours. Désolé. For the second time in five seasons the St-Lazare Stallions bantam team has made it to the final of the QBFL Cup thanks to their 48-13 win over the visiting St-Hubert Rebelles. Four years ago they won the trophy by defeating the Repentigny Rhinos and this year they will face the Drummondville Vandoos, whom they beat 25-13 during the regular season, but who seem like a much improved team after their surprising 30-27 win over the Joliette Pirates in the semi-final game.

In addition to allowing the Stallions to play in the QBFL Cup final, the game proved to be very important because a new bantam team record was established by Jeremy Lauzon for the most rushing yards in a single game. The 245 yards that he gained on 20 carries beat the previous record of 240 yards on 22 carries that was achieved by Maxime Menard on September 28, 2013 in a game against the Richelieu Pirates.

Correction: while writing the game report I was going over the data that I captured during the game in my stats spreadsheet and I noticed that I made an error in the way that I entered the information about 4 plays in the 4th quarter. The nature of my mistake was that I entered the field position data from those plays in the wrong column which caused the play yardage to be calculated incorrectly. I corrected the mistake and the result is that the total yardage that Jeremy Lauzon gained during the game was not 245 yards but 150 yards. It is an impressive statistic but not sufficient to break the records that I thought he broke. I apologize for creating the wrong impression. The cumulative team statistics shown in the table above have also been corrected.
 
Stallions started the game on offense and they only needed five plays to move 64 yards to get into the end zone on a 12-yd catch by S#24 for a quick 7-0 lead (S#13 convert kick). But, on their next four drives they turned the ball over twice and also punted twice and it looked like the 7-0 score might hold up until the half time break. However, with just three minutes left to play in the first half, Stallions went on offense starting at the St-Hubert 25-yd line and it only took one play, a 25-yd run by S#29, to increase their lead to 14-0 (S#13 convert kick). The offense barely had a chance to rest when it was called to get back on the field after S#1 intercepted a pass at the Rebelles 50-yd line and ran it back 42 yards. Two plays later, S#19 scored a TD on a 10-yd catch to increase the Stallions' lead to 21-0.

In the second half Stallions scored a touchdown on four of their five possessions while St-Hubert was only able to respond with two TDs.

On offense, S#29 made the biggest contribution with the 150 yards rushing performance and two touchdowns. On defense, S#1 and S#83 each had an interception while S#19 had an interception and a fumble recovery. S#46 made a QB sack

Je me suis trompé. J'ai oublié qu'il n'y a que deux ligues en lice pour le Ballon d'Argent eten consequence une ronde des séries éliminatoires a été éliminée. Ceci vaut dire que les équipes du football jeunesse ont une semaine de repos.

My mistake. I forgot that with only two leagues competing for the Silver Ball trophy, one round of the playoffs has been eliminated. This means that all the youth football teams had a bye this week.

séries éliminatoires - Coupe Jack Simpson / Jack Simpson Cup playoffs
(terrain/field: Parc Joseph-Laberge, Chateauguay, QC)

 2015-10-25_Stallions_midget_game_stats_bis.gif
La traduction est en cours. Désolé I already used this angle before to describe a football game but it's difficult to resist not using it again. To quote Dennis Green, the former head coach of the Arizona Cardinals: “They are who we thought they were”. In this case, it didn't apply to the Chicago Bears but to the Chateauguay Raiders who used exactly the same tactics that helped them defeat the Stallions midget team two weeks earlier to beat them again in the Jack Simpson Cup quarter final playoff game. Two weeks ago, they ran nine pass plays and 57 run plays, gaining 347 yards on the ground and all 15 of their first down. Yesterday, they ran eight pass plays and 62 run plays, gaining 358 yards rushing and all 13 of their first downs. It was déjà vu all over again. Turnovers also played a critical role in the Stallions' loss. They had started 16 offensive series during the game but 11 of them were cut short by a turnover. On the remaining five possessions, they punted four times and on one occasion they scored points.

Stallions kicked off to the Raiders at the start of the game and, as they have often done during the season, it was a short kick. They had a chance to recover the ball but R#34 managed to grab it, giving the home team a short field to work with. Then, on the first play from scrimmage, R#9 swept to the outside and ran 46 yards to the Stallions 10-yd line. Three plays later, he finished what he started with an 8-yd carry into the end zone to give the Raiders a quick 7-0 lead (R#9 also kicked the convert). On the ensuing drive for the Stallions, they started moving the ball down field but when they got to the center, R#91 intercepted a pass and ran it back 55 yards to increase the Raiders' lead to 13-0 (convert kick failed).

Near the end of the 1st quarter, it looked like the Stallions would finally score some points when they got the ball at the Raiders 33-yd line. On their first play from scrimmage, S#81 caught a short pass from S#5 and was headed for the end zone. Unfortunately, with just five yards to go, R#31 stripped the ball from him and R#20 recovered it. The Raiders then put together a 12-play, 105-yd drive that finished with a 15-yd TD catch by R#23, the only completed pass that the Raiders would accomplish in the entire game, to increase their lead to 20-0 (R#9 convert kick).

After a scoreless 2nd quarter, Stallions once again appeared poised to score some points mid way through the 3rd quarter when they moved 58 yards in six plays and they got a first down at the Raiders 13-yd line but on the next three plays they could only get one yard closer to the end zone and they decided to settle for a field goal. Unfortunately, the 20-yd attempt sailed just a bit wide of the goal post and they went away with only one point. While the Raiders seemed content to just protect their lead, Stallions finally scored a TD early in the 4th quarter when they marched 70 yards in six plays, finishing with an 8-yd carry into the end zone by S#30 to narrow the gap to 20-8 (S#88 convert kick). All three of their remaining possessions, however, ended with turnovers and the final score remained 20-8 for the Raiders.

Seven different players contributed equally on offense (S#7, S#12, S#20, S#30, S#81, S#85 and S#88) but the best performances were on defense with S#3 and S#33 each making an interception while S#31 and S#55 each recovered a fumble. S#4, S#47 and S#68 combined to make two sacks.

2015 octobre 14-18: Résultats des parties / Game results

Voici les parties d'autres équipes que l'on surveille :
  • les Gee-Gees de l'université d'Ottawa, qui comptent parmi ses membres Bryce Vieira, vont jouer contre les Mustangs de l'université Western le samedi, 17 octobre à 13 heures sur la route à London, ON. On peut régarder le match à travers du site web stretchinternet.com
  • les Stingers de l'université Concordia, où l'on peut trouver plusieurs anciens joueurs des Stallions comme Cody Briggs, Jack Louisdorf et Quaid Johnson, vont affronter les Gaiters de l'université Bishop's le samedi, 17 octobre à 14 heures à domicile
  • les Jr. Raiders de Chateauguay vont jouer contre l'équipe de l'É.T.S. le Génie le dimanche, 18 octobre à 14 heures au terrain de l'école sécondaire Louis-Philippe-Paré à Chateauguay
Pour toutes les équipes scolaires et civiles, ou presque, les parties de cette semaine vont achever la saison régulière 2015. Pour la majorité, leur positionnement pour les séries éliminatoires est déjà connu. La seule équipe dont le classement pour les séries peut encore varier beaucoup est l'équipe midget des Stallions de St-Lazare, tout comme l'année passée. Dependant du sort de leur partie de cette semaine contre les Vandoos de Drummondville, ils pouvent finir aussi haut que la 3e position (s'ils gagnent et dans ce cas ils joueraient la première partie des séries à domicile contre la 10e équipe de la division BH qui sera le plus probablement les Barons de St-Bruno) ou aussi bas que la 6e position (s'ils perdent et si les Bulldogs de Sherbrooke battent St-Laurent, dans ce cas ils vont jouer la 1re partie des séries éliminatoires sur la route contre la 2e équipe de la division WS, laquelle sera le plus probablement les Raiders de Chateauguay).

On peut trouver une description graphique de la structure des séries élilminatoires de la ligue LFMQ ci-dessous :
Here are the games of other teams that we are watching:
  • the Ottawa Gee-Gees, where Bryce Vieira is playing, will face the Western University Mustangs on Saturday, October 17 at 1 pm on the road in London, ON. Their game can be seen on the stretchinternet.com website
  • the Concordia Stingers, where several former Stallions such as Cody Briggs, Jack Louisdorf and Quaid Johnson are playing against the Bishop's University Gaiters on Saturday, October 17 at 2 pm on their home turf
  •  the Chateauguay Jr. Raiders are playing against the É.T.S. le Génie team on Sunday, October 18 at 2 pm at the Louis-Philippe-Paré High School in Chateauguay, QC
For almost all of the high school and community football teams, this week's games will mark the end of the 2015 regular season. For most of them, their position in the playoffs is already known. The only team whose playoff seeding can vary a lot are the St-Lazare Stallions midget team just like last year. Depending on the outcome of their game this weekend against the Drummondville Vandoos, they can finish as high as 3rd (if they win, which means that they would then be playing their first round playoff game at home against the #10 team in the BH division, most likely the St-Bruno Barons) or as low as 6th (if they lose and the Sherbrooke Bulldogs beat St-Laurent, in which case they would play their first round playoff game on the road against the #2 team in the WS division, which will most likely be the Chateauguay Raiders).

A graphical representation of the 2015 QMFL playoff structure is shown below:

La traduction est en cours. Désolé. Just like the weather, with blue skies and bright sun one moment and dark clouds and driving snow the next, this game had a split personality. During the first half, the Vandoos dominated the game completely and scored all the points they would need. In the second half, Stallions were the only ones scoring points but not enough to get themselves out of the hole that they dug before the half time break. To see how different the two halves were, here are the stats comparing the offensive production of both teams.

La traduction est en cours. Désolé. Before the game, representatives from the famous Canadian Forces 22nd regiment were on hand for a ceremony to dedicate their famous Vandoos nickname to the Drummondville football team. Their ceremonial band was also present to play the Canadian national anthem, which gave the game a sense of prestige and importance.

For both teams this was their last game of the regular season and it was critical for their seeding in the playoffs. After seeing the Sherbrooke Bulldogs beat the St-Laurent Spartans a day earlier, for the Stallions the game meant a difference between finishing 3rd or 6th. For Drummondville, it was either 3rd or 5th. Unfortunately for the Stallions, just like last year when they were in the same situation on the last weekend of the regular season, the worst case scenario came true.

It looked good for the Stallions at the start of the game when S#20 recovered the short kickoff at the Drummondville 49-yd line. However, they could only advance 18 more yards after that and they turned the ball over on downs. Both team then exchanged punts and the 1st quarter finished with a 0-0 tie.

Early in the 2nd quarter, though, the Vandoos found the right offensive strategy as they started to use a mix of runs and passes and they put together an 8-play, 70-yd scoring drive that finished with a 2-yd TD run by D#29 to take a 7-0 lead (D#13 convert kick). A few minutes later they took advantage of a Stallions turnover when they recovered the ball that was fumbled on a punt return only 14 yards from the end zone. Three plays later, D#29 scored again on a 2-yd run to increase the home team's lead to 14-0 (D#13 convert kick). The Vandoos tried to add three more points to their lead with a 20-yd field goal just before the half time break but the ball sailed under the cross bar and they only got a rouge from it.

Two completely different teams showed up for the 2nd half. Stallions got on the scoreboard on their first possession when they moved 75 yards in 12 plays, finishing with a 7-yd scamper by their QB on a 4th down play to cut the lead down to 15-7 (S#88 convert kick). It looked like the Stallions were going to score again on their next drive after the Vandoos turned the ball over on downs at their own 47-yd line. But, after getting to within 5 yards of the end zone on 11 plays, Stallions then turned the ball over on downs.

They reduced the Vandoos' lead to 15-11 thanks to two safeties that Drummondville conceded and they got the ball one last time at their own 52-yd line with 1:44 left to play in the game. They ran seven consecutive pass plays and got a first down at the Vandoos 22-yd line with 45 seconds still on the clock but on the next play D#21 intercepted a pass just five yards from the end zone and Drummondville was then able to run out the clock to preserve their win.

After the game, the local organizers handed out prizes to the outstanding players on offense and defense for both teams. For the Stallions, the players who received the recognition were S#5 on offense and S#50 and S#68 on defense.

I would like to heartily thank the Drummondville hosts for allowing me to share their shelter during the game and to congratulate them on the way they conduct their games and how much fun they make it for the competitors and the spectators.

La traduction est en cours. Désolé. Only team pride was on the line for the Chateauguay Jr. Raiders as they had already been assured of finishing the regular season in first place, but it was a do-or-die game for the É.T.S. team who had to win if they wanted to have any chance of qualifying for the playoffs. It looked good for them through the first three quarters but turnovers and penalties in the 4th quarter proved to be their downfall and they ended up losing the game by one touchdown,

After the teams exchanged punts on their first possessions, the Raiders started their second drive from their own 15-yd line but they went backwards and they had to punt again. R#83 attempted to punt the ball from inside his own end zone but the ball was blocked by E#20 and then recovered by E#88 for a touchdown to put the visitors ahead 6-0 (convert kick failed). However, on the ensuing series, Chateauguay responded with a 5-play, 55-yd drive that finished with a 1-yd plunge into the end zone by R#48 to put the home team ahead 7-6 (R#29 convert kick).

A few minutes later, they increased their lead to 9-6 when É.T.S. had to concede a safety after the ball sailed over the head of the kicker into the end zone on a punt attempt. No team was able to generate any points in the 2nd quarter and the score remained 9-6 in favor of Chateauguay at the half time break.

In the 3rd quarter, the É.T.S. offense started to move the ball and they were soon rewarded when E#89 kicked a 35-yd field goal to tie the game at 9-9. Then, it was Chateauguay's turn to concede a safety, which gave the lead back to the visitors by an 11-9 score. Near the end of the frame, they were able to increase their lead to 18-9 when they got the ball at the Chateauguay 6-yd line following a Raiders turnover and two plays later E#4 caught an 8-yd pass in the end zone (E#89 convert kick).

Unfortunately for É.T.S., however, they got the ball six more times in the 4th quarter but they turned it over four times and they punted twice. The Raiders took advantage of the opportunities to score two touchdowns to get back in front and hold on to the 25-18 win.

(13 h) CEGEP St-Jean-sur-Richelieu 45 vs Valleyfield Noir et Or 35
(terrain/field: CEGEP de Valleyfield, Valleyfield, QC)

Les Noir et Or de Valleyfield ont finalement rencontré un adversaire juste quand ils ont confronté les Géants du Cégep de St-Jean-sur-Richelieu devant une grande foule de spectateurs lors d'une belle journée d'automne. Comme s'ils étaient deux boxeurs champions, ils s'échangeaient des coups de poing, produisant ainsi beaucoup d'action en attaque et des points en utilisant le même style de jeu sans caucus et une exécution rapide, mais le facteur qui s'est finalement avéré la différence était les revirements. Contrairement à leur match une semaine plus tôt contre les Islanders de John Abbott quand ils n'ont rendu le ballon qu'une seule fois, contre les Géants les Noir et Or l'ont fait quatre fois et ils l'ont fait au pire moment possible quand ils étaient près de la zone rouge et quand il semblait ce n'était qu'une question de temps avant avant qu'ils se rendreraient dans la zone des buts. Des attrapées de passes spectaculaires (comme celui-ci ou celui-ci, ou celui-ci ou même celui-ci) que les réceveurs de St-Jean ont pu faire ont également joué un rôle important dans le match, tout comme les pénalités, dont les 20 que les Géants ont écopés pour 187 verges tandis que 14 pénalités pour 125 verges ont été signalées contre les Noir et Or.

La première série offensive du match de l'équipe de Valleyfield présageait des choses à venir. Ils sont allés en attaque les premiers à partir de leur propre ligne de huit verges et ils ont utilisé quatre courses et trois passes pour obtenir un premier essai à la ligne de 25 verges de St-Jean. Cependant, lors du jeu suivant, le ballon leur avait échappé et les Géants l'ont récouvré. Les visiteurs ont ensuite fait payer à Valleyfield pour leur erreur en avançant 94 verges en huit jeux pour marquer un touché sur une course de 11 verges de S n ° 23 pour prendre le devant 7 à 0 (botté de transformation de S n ° 89).

Après un botté de dégagement de Valleyfield, les Géants ont marqué à nouveau lors de la série offensive suivante quand S n ° 23 avait marqué son deuxième touché, cette fois sur une course de 30 verges, pour augmenter leur avance à 15 à 0 (St-Jean avait marqué un point supplémentaire pour un rouge suite au coup d'envoi après leur premier touché). Cependant, Valleyfield s'est inscrit au tableau de pointage lors de leur attaque suivante quand V n ° 15 avait marqué un touché sur une course de 60 verges d'une façon la plus inattendue. Les Noir et Or se sont trouvés dans une situation de 4e essai et une verge à franchir à leur propre ligne de 50 verges quand ils ont décidé de tenter d'obtenir un 1er essai. Ils ont envoyé V n ° 15 pour le jeu d'une distance courte et tout le monde dans le stade savaient qu'il allait simplement prendre la remise et se pousser en avant. Une fois le ballon remis, c'était exactement ce qu'il avait fait et quand tout le monde s'attendait le sifflet de la fin du jeu, V n ° 15 est soudainement sortie debout de la mêlée de joueurs et rien d'autre que de l'espace ouvert entre lui et la zone des buts. Les défenseurs de St-Jean ont tenté de l'attraper, mais ils ne pouvaient pas lui refuser le touché, qui avait rendu le pointage 15 à 7 (botté de transformation de V n ° 20).

Les Géants ont répondu avec une attaque de 11 jeux et 84 verges pour augmenter leur avantage à 21 à 7 avec un touché sur une passe captée de 22 verges de S n ° 83, mais l'équipe de Valleyfield avait tenu le même rythme et elle avait marqué un majeur sur une passe captée de 10 verges par V n ° 86 pour rendre le pointage 21 à 14.

Après avoir obligé les visiteurs à dégager pour la première fois dans le match, les Noir et Or semblaient d'être prêts à niveler le pointage à la fin du 2e quart quand ils ont obtenu un premier essai à la ligne de 22 verges de St-Jean, mais sur le jeu suivant, le ballon leur avait échappé, cette fois à seulement 15 verges de la zone des buts. Il semblait comme quoi la première demie finirait avec les Géants menant 21 à 14 quand ils ont entamé une nouvelle série offensive à leur propre ligne de 26 verges avec seulement 32 secondes à jouer. Cependant, pendant les 25 prochaines secondes, ils étaient encore capables d'exécuter cinq jeux et marquer un touché sur une passe captée de 8- verges de S n ° 5 pour augmenter leur avantage à 28 à 14. Pire encore pour Valleyfield, les Géants ont ensuite récupéré le ballon lors du botté d'envoi à la ligne de 32 verges de Valleyfield. Ils ont lancé une passe rapide de 10 verges et S n ° 86 avait alors réussi un placement de 30 verges pour augmenter leur avantage à 31 à 14.

Les Géants ont augmenté l'écart à 38 à 14 à mi-chemin pendant le 3e quart, les Noir et Or ont donné la foule une raison pour se réjouir quand ils ont marqué deux touchés (celui-ci et celui-ci) pour réduire l'écart à 38 à 27 avec 11 minutes encore à jouer dans le match. Cependant, l'équipe de St-Jean a été en mesure de marquer un autre touché pour augmenter leur avantage à 45 à 27 avant que V n ° 2 ait marqué un touché pour Valleyfield sur une passe captée de 20 verges pour réduire l'écart à 45 à 35 (une course de transformation de deux points de V n ° 5) avec moins de deux minutes à jouer dans la partie. Malheureusement pour l'équipe locale, elle n'a jamais eu encore la possession du ballon, car les Géants étaient en mesure de faire ecouler tout le temps pour sceller leur victoire.

On peut trouver deux autres reportages sur ce match au site Web de www.versusfootball.com. Un d'eux est ici et l'autre est ici, ainsi qu'un autre reportage sur le site Web de www.journalsaint-francois.ca.
The Valleyfield Noir et Or finally met their match when they faced the St-Jean-sur-Richelieu Géants in front of a large crowd of spectators on a beautiful autumn afternoon. Like two championship boxers, they traded punches back and forth, producing a lot of offense and points with the same no huddle, high tempo style of attack, but the factor that finally proved to be the difference was turnovers. Unlike their game a week earlier against the John Abbott Islanders when they turned the ball over only once, against the Géants the Noir et Or did it four times and they did it at the worst possible time when they were near the red zone and when it looked like it would only be a matter of time before their would get in the end zone. The spectacular catches (like this one or this one, or this one or even this one) that the St-Jean receivers made also played an important role in the game as did penalties, 20 of which were called against the Géants for 187 yards while 14 penalties for 125 yards were called against the Noir et Or.

The opening drive for Valleyfield was an omen of things to come. They went on offense first and starting from their own 8-yd line they used four runs and three passes to get a first down at the St-Jean 25-yd line. However, on the next play, they fumbled the ball and the Géants recovered it. The visitors then made Valleyfield pay for their mistake by going 94 yards in eight plays to score a touchdown on a 11-yd run by S#23 to take a 7-0 lead (S#89 convert kick).

After Valleyfield punted, the Géants scored again on the ensuing possession when S#23 scored his second TD, this time on a 30-yd run, to increase their lead to 15-0 (St-Jean got an extra point for a rouge on a kickoff after their first TD). Valleyfield, however, got on the scoreboard on their next possession when V#15 scored a touchdown on a 60-yd run in the most unexpected way. The Noir et Or were facing a 4th down and 1 yard go at their own 50-yd line when they decided to go for it. They sent in V#15 for the short yardage situation and everyone in the stadium knew that he was simply going to take the handoff and push his way forward. When the ball was snapped he did exactly that and when everyone expected the play to be whistled down, V#15 suddenly emerged from the pile of players on his feet and nothing but open space between he and the end zone. St-Jean defenders tried to chase him down but he would not be denied, making the score 15-7 (V#20 covert kick).

The Géants replied with an 11-play, 84-yd drive to increase their lead to 21-7 with a 22-yd TD catch by S#83 but Valleyfield kept pace and scored a major on a 10-yd catch by V#86 to make the score 21-14.

After forcing the visitors to punt for the first time in the game, the Noir et Or appeared poised to tie the game late in the 2nd quarter when they got a first down at the St-Jean 22-yd line but on the next play they fumbled the ball, this time just 15 yards from the end zone. It looked like the first half would end with the Géants leading 21-14 after they got the ball at their own 26-yd line with only 32 seconds to play. However, in the next 25 seconds they were still able to run five plays and score a touchdown on an 8-yd catch by S#5 to increase their lead to 28-14. To make matters worse for Valleyfield, the Géants recovered the ball on the ensuing kickoff at the Valleyfield 32-yd line. They threw a quick 10-yd pass and S#86 then kicked a 30-yd field goal to increase their lead to 31-14.

After the Géants increased their lead to 38-14 mid-way in the 3rd quarter, the Noir et Or gave the crowd something to cheer about when they scored two touchdowns (this one and this one)
to narrow the gap to 38-27 with 11 minutes still left to play in the game. However, St-Jean was able to score another TD to increase their lead to 45-27 before V#2 scored a touchdown for Valleyfield on a 20-yd catch to narrow the gap to 45-35 (V#5 2-pt convert run) with less than two minutes left to play on the game. Unfortunately for the home team, they never got the ball again as the Géants were able to run out the clock to seal their victory.

En mathématiques, selon la règle commutative transitive, si A> B et B> C alors A> C. Si elle s'appliquait au football alors les Stallions auraient battu les Raiders de Châteauguay parce qu'ils ont gagné 20 à 7 contre Sherbrooke et Sherbrooke à son tour avait battu Châteauguay 20 à 16. Au lieu de cela, les Stallions ne pouvaient tout simplement pas arrêter les jeux par la course des Raiders, permettant à leurs adversaires à cumuler au sol 347 verges et la totalité de leurs 15 premiers essais. Que ce soit l'argile dans la terre ou le fer dans l'eau, dès le premier match que les équipes des Stallions ont jamais joué au mois d'aout 2001, les défenses des équipes de St-Lazare ont toujours eu des performances faibles contre la course (alors que pendant la même période, les jeux par la passe ont été un atout fort de leurs attaques).

Tout allait bien pour les Stallions tôt dans le match quand ils sont allés en attaque les premiers et ils ont commencé une série offensive depuis leur propre ligne de 18 verges. Ils ont ensuite utilisé une mixte de courses et de passes pour avancer 92 verges en 15 jeux lesquels ont consommé presque la moitié du premier quart pour prendre une avance de 7 à 0 avec un touché par leur quart-arrière sur une course de 3 verges (botté de transformation de S n ° 88) . Cependant, lors de leur attaque suivante ils ont rendu le ballon avec un échappé et les Raiders ont profité de l'opportunité pour avancer 55 verges en sept jeux, achevant leur attaque avec un touché sur une passe captée de 11 verges de R n ° 15 pour niveler le pointage à 7 à 7 (botté de transformation de R n ° 17).

À mi-chemin au 2e quart, les Stallions ont profité d'une pénalité contre les Raiders qui leur avait permis de commencer une nouvelle attaque depuis la ligne de 36 verges de Châteauguay et ils avaient besoin de seulement trois jeux pour reprendre le devant 14 à 7 grâce à un jeu d'une passe suivie d'une course de 40 verges de S n ° 12 (botté de transformation de S n ° 88). Toutefois, les Raiders ont répondu immédiatement avec un touché et la première demie s'est terminée à égalité 14 à 14.

Les Stallions ont tenté un botté court au début de la seconde demie, mais il avait échoué et les Raiders ont pris la possession du ballon à leur propre ligne de 50 verges. Ils ont ensuite montré la puissance de leur jeu par la course, car ils n'avaient besoin que de trois portées pour entrer dans la zone des buts et ainsi prendre le devant 20 à 14 (botté de transformation raté). Tout juste après, ils ont obligé les Stallions de dégager après seulement trois jeux et quand c'était leur tour à l'attaque ils ont avancé 91 verges en huit jeux, dont tous par la course sauf le dernier, pour marquer un touché sur un autre jeu d'une passe suivie d'une course de R n ° 15 pour augmenter leur avantage à 27 à 14. Au 4e quart, le meilleur que les Stallions ont pu faire était une attaque de 16 verges tandis que les Raiders ont gaspillé leurs opportunités avec des revirements.

Les joueurs S n ° 20 et n ° 21 S se sont démarqués à la défense avec une interception chacun, tandis que S n ° 4, S n ° 12, S n ° 50 et S n ° 68 ont fait le plus grand nombre de plaqués.
In math, according to the commutative transitive property, if A>B and B>C then A>C. If it applied to football then Stallions should have beaten the Chateauguay Raiders because they won 20-7 against Sherbrooke and Sherbrooke in turn beat Chateauguay 20-16. Instead, the Stallions just could not stop the Raiders running game, allowing their opponents to gain 347 yards and all 15 of their first downs on the ground. Whether it's the clay in the soil or the iron in the water, ever since the first game that any Stallions team ever played in August 2001, the defenses on St-Lazare teams have always performed poorly against the run (whereas historically, the offenses have always been characterized by a strong passing game).

It looked really good for the Stallions early in the game when they got the ball first and started an offensive drive from their own 18-yd line. They then used a mix of runs and passes to move 92 yards in 15 plays that used almost half of the first quarter to take a 7-0 lead with a touchdown by their QB on a 3-yd run (S#88 convert kick). However, on their next possession they turned the ball over on a fumble and the Raiders took advantage of the opportunity to go 55 yards in seven plays, finishing with an 11-yd TD catch by R#15 to tie the game at 7-7 (R#17 convert kick).

Mid way through the 2nd quarter, Stallions took advantage of a Raiders penalty that let them start a new drive from the Chateauguay 36-yd line and they needed just three plays to go back in front 14-7 thanks to a 40-yd catch-and-run play by S#12 (S#88 convert kick). However, the Raiders responded immediately with a touchdown and the first half ended in a 14-14 tie.

Stallions tried an onside kick to start the 2nd half but it backfired and the Raiders got the ball at their own 50-yd line. They then showed the strength of their running game as they needed only three carries to get into the end zone to go in front 20-14 (convert kick failed). Right after that they forced the Stallions to go three-and-out and when they got the ball again they went 91 yards in eight plays, all of them runs except the last one, to score a touchdown on another catch-and-run play by R#15 to increase their lead to 27-14. In the 4th quarter, the best that the Stallions could do was a 16-yd drive while while the Raiders squandered their opportunities with turnover.

S#20 and S#21 stood out on defense with one interception each while S#4, S#12, S#50 and S#68 led with the most tackles.
