(13 h) Chateauguay Jr. Raiders 14 @ Ottawa Sooners 21
Coupe Shrine / Shrine Bowl
(terrain/field: Keith Harris Stadium, Ottawa, ON)

La traduction est en cours. Désolé. The Chateauguay Raiders and the Ottawa Sooners faced each other for the first time since the 2008 season playoffs. This time, the circumstances were much different. Eight years ago the Sooners were still part of the QJFL whereas now they are part of the Ontario Football Conference in the CJFL. Back then, the facilities at the Keith Harris stadium were rather run down and neglected while today they are top notch (are you paying attention Concordia Stingers?) thanks to the return of the Ravens football team at Carleton University. Finally, the last time these two teams met the QJFL championship trophy was at stake while this time, the goal of the game is to start an annual tradition to raise money for the Shriners organization.

The event began with pomp and ceremonies as the arriving spectators were greeted by the Sooners cheerleaders and the Shriners mascot while bagpipes were playing in the background. The Canadian national anthem was then sung by a local singer and the opening kickoff took place at precisely 1 pm.

Both teams played cautiously at first and punted on their first two possessions. However, on their third appearance on the field, the Sooners offense surprised the Raiders defense with a 55-yd deep pass to S#80 in the end zone to take a 7-0 lead (S#29 convert kick). After that, neither team could manufacture any good scoring opportunity until early in the 2nd quarter when the Sooners started a new offensive series from the Raiders 22-yd line. They got as close as the 9 yards from the end zone but the Raiders defense held their ground and a major penalty pushed the Sooners 15 yards back. In the end, the home team had to settle for a 31-yd field goal attempt but the kick missed the mark wide right and they only gained 1 point for a rouge.

The Sooners gained another rouge point to increase their lead to 9-0 mid way through the 2nd quarter but the Raiders offense then responded with a 75-yd drive that finished with a touchdown on a 39-yd catch-and-run play by Forest to narrow the gap to 9-7 at the half time break(Remi Hort convert kick).

In the 3rd quarter it looked like the Sooners were going to run away with it as their defense kept the Raiders in check while their offense was putting points on the scoreboard with a touchdown by S#35 and a field goal by S#29 to increase their lead to 19-7. However, on the last play of the 3rd quarter, Porreca connected with Forest again, this time on a 90-yd catch-and-run play, to make the score 19-14.

In the 4th quarter, the Raiders defense stood its ground and stopped the Sooners from scoring any more points, with the best play coming from Sanders Armand who blocked a 25-yd field goal attempt, but the Raiders offense wasn't doing much to help their own cause and they allowed the Sooners to increase their lead to 21-7 with a safety.

Finally, with 2:13 left to play in the game, the Raiders offense went back on the field starting at the Sooners 49-yd line. They converted on 3rd and 10 and they got a first down at the Sooners 5-yd line thanks to a 44-yd catch by R#30 and it looked like it was just a matter of time before they would score the game-tying touchdown. However, a delay of game penalty pushed them back 10 yards. After an incomplete pass into the end zone, on 2nd and goal from the 15-yd line, Porreca scrambled for nine yards to the Sooners 6-yd line. Another delay of game penalty pushed the Raiders back 10 yards again and then, on 3rd and goal from the 16-yd line, Porreca's throw to Shakeel D'Aguiar in the end zone went incomplete and all the Sooners had to do was to run out the last 45 seconds left on the clock to seal their victory.
