Two weeks ago, the defense this team has managed four steals in front of more than 24 000 people at the game Panda. Then eight days ago in Toronto, the quarter-to-back rookie of this same training has launched four touchdowns.
All is well with the Gee Gees of Ottawa, holders of a card of 5-1 and ranked fifth in the country.
Performance surprising for a young team, which is preparing to pass his test in the most difficult of 2018.
The Gee Gees receive the visit on Saturday of the Mustangs of Western. The reigning Vanier cup are unbeaten in six matches and seem to be even more formidable than the edition of last year. They have scored in average… of 50.8 points per game.
“They (Mustangs) don’t have a weakness in attack,” said the coordinator defensive Gee Gees, Jean-Vincent Posy-Audette.
“They have a good offensive line, which is big and dominant. Their quarterback is excellent. You have good receivers and you have three good carriers of the ball… wherever she goes, this team has gained a lot of yards on the ground.”
One of these halves on the defensive, the Montreal-Cedric Joseph, has amassed 355 yards last week against Windsor.
Posy-Audette said. This will be a challenge for the Gee Gees.
“It’s going to have to play a perfect game,” he said.
This last update when even on a tertiary dominant if Western decides to throw the ball. Defensively ottawa has managed 13 interceptions this season.
Alone, the half defensive québécois Jamie Harry five.
Posy-Audette has beautiful deal of the defensive Gee Gees, he keeps an eye on the performance of the attack.
The work of a quarter of first-year Sawyer Buetnner show off. The rookie from Moose Jaw has launched nine touchdowns in the last two outings.
“The first thing I remember of him is that he is a warrior. All the guys want to play for him. When he gets hit during a game, there is all the time. The other clubs are trying to disturb him, but Sawyer plays with heart. It’s a winner.”
There is another thing that coaches love in Buetnner.
“He is serious. He is going to watch video tapes. It adapts quickly. He wants to learn.”
The Gee Gees will have another reason to be fired up for this confrontation at the top of the conference in ontario. They had been thawed of 63-10 in the hands of those same Mustangs at the conclusion of the last season.
This game between two of the five best teams in the country will be closely followed by the Carleton Ravens.
They are assured a place in the playoff’s Friday afternoon in Toronto, winning 35-20 against the Lions of York university. This is their final game of the regular season, finishing with a record of 5-3.
The quarter gatinois Mike Arruda threw three touchdowns in the win, including one from 36 yards.
