Defence wins championships and that point was proven at the 46th Vanier Cup at
PEPS Stadium at Laval.

The Laval Rouge et Or defeated the Calgary Dino’s by a score of 29-2.

The Rouge et Or started out with a bang scoring 17 points in the first quarter and shutting
out the Dino’s throughout the game. They started out with two quick touchdowns on their first few drives and took control of the game from there.

The Dino’s did not manage to score any offensive points in the game as their lone score
came on a conceded safety by Laval in the 2nd quarter.

Sebastien Levesque had a monster game for the Rouge et Or and in doing so was named the player of the game. He ran the ball 30 times for 168 yards and one TD. He scored the touchdown on the first offensive drive for Laval. It was a 40 yard run on the score; this helped Laval set the tempo for the game. He also was injured many times during the game, but kept coming back into the game and giving out hard hits to the defenders.

Calgary was never able to get anything going on the offensive side all game. They had too many dropped catches as their star receivers were unable to handle the slippery ball. The crowd noise and snow where the external factors which made a difference and gave Laval the upper hand over a shaky Calgary team.

Erik Glavic had a terrible game as he was never able to get anything going. This marks the end of the amazing career of Glavic as the 2 time Hec Creighton trophy winner ends his career unable to win the Vanier Cup.
