The Carabins play the Uteck Cup final against the Western Mustangs this afternoon at the University of Montreal’s CEPSUM.
The match will be shown at noon on TVA Sports.
»I’m sure they’ll be surprised when they get here. CEPSUM is a hostile environment. highlighted Carabins quarterback Jonathan Sénécal, a few days before this Canadian university football semi-final.
The Carabins qualified by winning the Dunsmore Cup last week thanks to a 12-6 win against Laval University’s Rouge et Or.
The Blues offense was generally much more productive during the regular schedule and will undoubtedly be able to bounce back in this semifinal against the Mustangs.
“Is this something I’m worried about? No way! We played great attacking football all year. Every time we had a little tougher games, we bounced back the next week,” emphatically head coach Marco Iadeluca during the week.
And if the offense ever proves relatively timid again, the Carbines also have what it takes to stifle their opponents’ attack with their own “Two-Headed Monster” formed by linebackers Nicky Farinaccio and Harold Miessan.
“Let’s just say that they don’t give the striker much confidence during training. They play so much that it’s hard for us to do it,” Carabins offensive coordinator Gabriel Cousineau admitted.
Then, the Mitchell Cup
After the Uteck Cup is won, we will present the second semi-final, the Mitchell Cup, starting at 3 p.m.
This will pit the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds against the University of St. John’s X-Men. Francis Xavier.
The big winners of these two semifinals will meet next week in the Vanier Cup game.
