Hurricane Irene’s gale-force gusts and a cold, driving rain didn’t dampen the resolve of diehard Stallions fans who drove to St. Laurent to cheer on the St. Lazare Stallions Peewee AA football team in their 45-12 win over the St. Laurent Spartans.
The Spartans fielded only 19 players and were no match for the Stallions who had a solid offensive game and a defense that forced, then recovered fumbles.
“Even though it was cold, the whole team was pumped!” said Stallions cornerback Zachary Ouimet. “Winning this game is a huge boost for our team spirit.”
Parents had to show up an hour early to allow the team to warm up before the game but there was little complaining. “This has to be the best game I’ve ever seen,” beamed one proud mom.
Overall, it was another winning weekend for the club. On Saturday the Midget stallions travelled to play the Laurentien Bobcats. They proved to be no match as the Stallions walked away with a 49-14 victory. The Bantam Stallions hosted the Bobcats’ younger team and they too, were no match for the Stallions, who earned an impressive 48-14 win.
In Peewee action, the AAA Stallions recorded their first loss of the season to the Lakeshore Cougars, who led at the half by 20+ points. The Stallions came back in the 2nd half with 24 points, but fell 38-24.
The Mosquito AAA Stallions lost in a close 6-0 to the Lakeshore Cougars and the Mosquito AA had a bye this week.
The Atom Silver Stallions opened their season on August 21st with a strong showing by beating the Lakeshore Pumas 14-0. The team put forward a strong defensive effort in keeping the Pumas off the scoreboard. Offensively, two touchdowns were scored, the first a run by Justin Brigden which was then converted for two points by Nick St-Louis Taylor. The second TD was a nice reception by Tyler Rankin.
The Silver Atom team was to have played Lakeshore at 3 p.m. Saturday, but the Lakeshore team was a no-show. After 20 minutes, the game was called in favor for the Silver Stallions and a 6-0 win was recorded to them. The Atom Burgundy Stallions had a bye week.
The two Atom Stallions are tied with two wins apiece and both have two games this Labour day weekend. On Saturday the Burgundy host the 1 and 1 Ile Perrot Patriots, while Silver hosts the 0 and 2 Pumas. On Monday the 2 Stallion Atom teams face off against each other which will surely be an exciting game for the park and potentially for first place.
This Saturday is the Stallions annual Mega Day, with a full day of games and events. Only the Juniors (18-22) will be out of town, playing an away game against the Cumberland Panthers near Ottawa. The Junior Stallions lost their first game to the South Shore Monarx 27-6, with Max Bourgon scoring the Stallions’ only TD.
