The Carabins (6-2) remedied this situation in their second offensive streak of this last game of the regular season. Thanks to a quarterback sneak, William Legault successfully concluded a 67-yard push.

It was Sénécal's first touchdown pass since the first quarter against the Concordia Stingers on Oct. 8. The number 12 of the University of Montreal did it again in the fourth quarter, joining his efforts with those of Simon Riopel.

On the other side of the ball, the Carabins defensive unit gave no points to the Redbirds offense (1-7) for the second time in as many duels this season.

The unit led by Éloa Latendresse-Regimbald approached the paying zone twice, but opposing players made interceptions to end the threat. Linebackers Harold Miessan and Mohamed Elshal were responsible for the theft.

In addition, this match marked the return to play of Carabins wide receiver Hassane Dosso. The latter was playing his first match in 2022, he who injured his shoulder during training camp. The talented Frenchman saw little demand in the first three quarters, but saw the ball several times in the final 15 minutes. He finished his contest with six catches for 49 yards.

The Carabins will be back on their land next Saturday in one of the semi-finals of the Quebec university circuit. The green
