In a rematch of last year’s national championship, the Université Laval Rouge et Or once again came through in adversity to earn a spot in next week’s Vanier Cup final by beating the University of Calgary Dinos on their own turf, 35-23, on Nov. 18.

It was another ending typical of the matchups between the Université Laval Rouge et Or and the Université de Montréal Carabins. It was a close game throughout the 60 minutes and a nailbiter in the closing seconds.

The Carabins came close to handing Laval its own medicine from the 2016 Dunsmore Cup final, but, at the end, they came up short.

Laval’s Rouge et Or faced the Université de Montréal Carabins at the Stade Telus last weekend for the Réseau du Sport Étudiant du Québec (RSEQ) women’s soccer championship.

Both teams know each other pretty well. “That’s a typical game against Montreal,” said Laval head coach Helder Duarte. “At the USports national championship, it will be games like this.”
