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.”

The Ontario Reds celebrate their 12th national title at the Pavillon de la Jeunesse. The gold medal final pitted the Ontario Blues against the Ontario Reds. This is the Reds’ 12th straight national title. In fact, since the championship started in 2001, they are the only team to have won the gold medal. British Columbia took home the bronze medal as they defeated Saskatchewan 2-1 in overtime.

To paraphrase Kevin Costner’s character in Field of Dreams, “Build it and they will come.”

“It,” in this case is an inflated dome, which, from an aerial view of the vintage municipal stadium near Parc Victoria, looks like a gigantic marshmallow plopped down on the ballfield.
