Thus, the Alex achieved its second successive victory this season, after winning the first confrontation ten days ago.

Former Alouettes Eugene Lewis finished the game with 112 yards and three receptions, including one for 66 yards, as well as scoring a touchdown. Tre Ford and Taylor Cornelius also reached the end zone by running for a touchdown.

“It sure was a long time ago,” Ford said. We deserved this victory. I think we did a good offensive game. »

In the Rouge et Noir camp, Devonte Williams and Tyrell Pigrome each scored a goal.
