Report by Denis Lafontaine, Athletics Webmaster. 
It was another tremendously successful weekend for our Vanier Cheetahs varsity teams. Among the top stories were wins for Men’s Football in the playoff quarterfinals as well as important victories for both the Women’s and Men’s Division 1 Basketball Cheetahs. Our Division 2 Men’s Basketball team won their game on Friday evening and then lost in a road game on Sunday @ Marie-Victorin. We also have news about Women’s Soccer team members named as league All-Stars, as well as a full recap of the members of our highly successful wrestling program.  Read on for full details of the games presented primarily in chronological order.


On Friday evening, our Div.2 Men’s Basketball Cheetahs got the weekend started on the right foot by taking a 77-52 home win over Édouard-Montpetit. Their next game was played two days later on the road at Marie-Victorin on Sunday, November 5th, and unfortunately they lost 74-65, putting their season record at 3 wins and 2 losses. The team will next play another road game at Nouvelles-Frontières on Sunday, November 12th at 3:00 PM.


Also on Friday evening, our Div.1 Women’s Basketball Cheetahs won their second game in a row, taking a decisive 67-38 road win over Champlain-Lennoxville. The win improved their season record to 2-2. They have a bye next week and return to action on Friday, November 17th at home VS Dawson starting at 7:00 PM.


Report by Head Coach Peter Chryssomalis
Saturday’s come from behind 12 – 8 victory over CNDF the defending Bol d’or champions was a hard-fought battle. Our defense had an outstanding night with several key veterans stepping up to play their best game of the year. Solid performances from Darren Kyeremeh (12 tackles 2 assisted and 1 interception) Kaylan St Cyr (5 tackles 1 assisted 1 interception) Claude-Adler Joseph (6 tackles 2 assisted) Arnold Mbembe (4 tackles 4 assisted and 2 deflected passes) led the way. Holding CNDF’s offense to a Field Goal after they had scored 49 points the previous week against Andre Grasset was a tremendous accomplishment. Offensively we were led by veterans Samuel Emilus (5 receptions for 104 yards 2 TD’s) and Patrick Charles (22 carries for 122 yards) after being shut down in the 1st half we came out in the 2nd half with much more intensity scoring 2 TD’s to seal the victory. Samuel’s spectacular TD reception in the 4th quarter gave us a 12 – 8 lead and we held on for the win. We now go on to face Andre Grasset who’s only loss was against the Cheetahs earlier this season, game time is next Saturday at 1:00pm at Claude Robillard sports center.


Finally, on Sunday afternoon, our Division 1 Men’s Basketball Cheetahs played a road game and came out with a hard-fought 83-77 road victory over highly-ranked Brébeuf. The win improved their season record to 3 wins and only 1 loss, a record they share with Montmorency and Dawson at the top of current RSEQ league results.  Their next game will again be played on the road, this time on Sunday, November 12th @ Outaouais starting at 3:00 PM. Here is Coach Andy Hertzog’s game report:

Our Vanier basketball teams were all in action this weekend.

Our women’s Division 1 team went on the road to Champlain Lennoxville Friday night, and they won in convincing fashion. They led 15-8 after the first quarter and 38-15 at halftime, and cruised to a 67-38 victory. It was their 2nd straight win and evened their league record at 2-2. Tatiana Toledo had a big game with 20 points and 11 rebounds. Debora Aboagye added 14 points.

Our men’s Division 1 team played at Brébeuf Sunday afternoon. It promised to be a great game, as we came in ranked number 10 in Canada and our hosts were 14th. The game was well-contested by both teams and did not disappoint. We led 19-16 after the first quarter but trailed 37-36 at halftime. We scored the first 11 points of the third quarter to grab a 10-point lead, and we still led by 9 (62-53) going into the final period. Our hosts managed to cut our lead to 3 on a few occasions in the final period, but they could get no closer, and we were ultimately victorious by a score of 83-77. Steeve Joseph had a great game for us, scoring 22 points and adding 3 rebounds, 6 assists and 2 steals. JF Daho had 12 points and did a terrific defensive job on our opponent’s leading scorer. Quarry Whyne and Nginyu Ngala added 11 points each.

Our basketball teams all return to action next Sunday, going on the road to Gatineau. Our women’s Division 1 team plays Universel (formerly Nouvelles Frontieres) at 1:00 and our men’s Division 2 team plays Universel at 3:00. Our men’s Division 1 team plays Outaouais at 3:00 PM.

Have a great week !
