Cavaliers Keep Rolling With Win Over Lionel-Groulx

Champlain Cavaliers > Cavaliers News > Cavaliers Keep Rolling With Win Over Lionel-Groulx


The Cavaliers came out in total control of the game and showed great composure with their possession of the ball. Their patience paid off as they generated multiple scoring opportunities.

In the 22nd minute defender Ilyes Ait Slimane worked himself down the right flank and sent a ball forward to winger Alexandre Garceau. Garceau chipped the ball into the box to forward Julio Moncada who’s first touch paralyzed the defence and his second touch flicked the ball over the backline to on-rushing defender Matthew Francois. His shot found the back of the net for his third goal of the season, giving the Cavaliers a 1-0 lead.

Champlain kept total control of the ball and limited the opposition to very few chances. As the 2nd half started, the Cavaliers looked to their bench to bring in some fresh legs and help generate some offensive output and that they did.

In the 70th minute Garceau received a pass in a wide position and cut a low hard drive across the 18 yard box that found the timely run of rookie Charles Carrier-Cote who netted his first goal as a Cavalier for a 2-0 lead.

Just 5 minutes later Mamadi Camara took down a ball in the opposition’s 18 yard box and passed up on a shot at goal and instead took on 3 defenders to move in closer, his shot was blocked through a maze of traffic. However, Garceau’s anticipation guided him to the loose ball that he managed to fire home for the 3rd goal of the game.

In the 87th minute veteran forward Kadita Tshibangu took a pass and cut into the middle of the field and fired a thunderous shot from 23 yards out. The shot took a slight deflection as it lasered its way to the top far corner of the net for a 4-0 lead.

Player of the Game was Mamadi Camara. The “Brovsky” Hard Worker Award went to Antoine Laliberte.

The Cavaliers earned their 4th consecutive win in as many home games and now prepares to go on the road to continue their hot streak. The Cavaliers play Friday, September 27 at Concordia Stadium vs Vanier at  7:00 pm and then travel to Quebec City on Sunday in what looks to be a battle of the two top teams in the league between them and Garneau.
