MONTREAL - Coach Danny Maciocia spoke throughout the post-season of the mental toughness of his University of Montreal Carabins. Cam Reddish Jersey .That big game attitude was evident once again as the Carabins used a fourth-quarter comeback and Louis-Philippe Simoneaus game-winning field goal to defeat the McMaster Marauders 20-19 in the Vanier Cup game on Saturday.It gave the Carabins the title in their first appearance in the national university football championship game.Once again we came up big in the big moment, said quarterback Gabriel Cousineau. Im so thankful to have such a great team. We made it.Cousineau threw a third-quarter touchdown pass to Philip Enchill and saw Sean Erlington run one in in the fourth before Simoneaus winning boot, his second field goal of the game, with 2:45 remaining.But the game was far from over, as McMaster pivot Marshall Ferguson took the Marauders to the Montreal 24 in the final minute, only to see Tyler Crapignas attempt at a fifth field goal of the day blocked by defensive lineman Mathieu Girard and recovered by linebacker Jonathan Boissineault-Glaou to secure the victory.I blocked the kick, but it wasnt me who won the game for the team, said Girard. We won this together.Wayne Moore scored on a 50-yard run for McMaster in the first half, when the Marauders took a 13-3 lead and looked to be dominating.But five McMaster turnovers, including two interceptions by Anthony Coady and three lost fumbles, helped keep Montreal in the game.Us not finishing, thats been the story of our year, said Ferguson. There are too many throws that I want back.And when youre a fifth-year senior and you lose your final game, you dont get any throws back unless you want to play catch with your kids in 10 years.The McMaster defence took away the Carabins running game from the outset, holding them to 57 yards, and Cousineau was limited to 196 yards on 17 completions. But Montreals defence tightened when it counted, holding McMaster to field goals four times and allowing only one touchdown.The Carabins first showed their mettle when they ended Lavals 11-year run as Quebec conference champions, stopping the Rouge et Ors 70-game home winning streak with a 12-9 overtime win.Last week, they held on for a 29-26 win over Manitoba when Coady forced a fumble with the Bisons threatening to score from the Montreal 12 in the final minute.Then Girard comes up with the blocked kick to give them the Vanier Cup.We practised a way to block kicks, but even if we gave up the three points and took the ball on the 35, there were still 50 seconds to get another field goal, said Maciocia. Once we blocked it, we just wanted to end the game in possession of the ball. With the work of our O-line, we were able to do that.Maciocia won a pair of Grey Cups with the Edmonton Eskimos, first as offensive co-ordinator and later as coach and general manager. Now he has a Vanier Cup as well.I dont think it gets better than this, said the Montreal native who is in his fourth year with the Carabins. To do it in front of family and friends, in a packed house at Molson Stadium. . . it was always a goal of mine to win a championship in my own back yard. I dont think the Grey Cups topped this.A near-capacity crowd of 22,649, mostly wearing Carabins blue and white, turned out on a chilly afternoon to see the home side struggle, particularly in the first half when McMaster took a 13-3 lead and held Montreal to only three first downs, while sacking Cousineau five times.Cousineau said the team sang their rally song, which he refused to name, in the locker-room at the intermission and went back out confident they could fight back.Maciocia told the players to just to stay calm. Weve seen this movie before. We know how to handle these situations. If we stick together, everythings possible.It didnt look that way early on.A 30-yard pass to Max Cameron set up Crapignas 22-yard field goal 3:59 into and game. He added a 35-yard boot at 12:42.A Montreal drive was stalled at the two and Simoneau was good from eight yards 3:25 into the second quarter.A Carabins facemasking penalty put the ball on the Montreal 50 and on the next play, Moore found a gaping hole off tackle to the right side and ran it in for a touchdown at 5:38.The Carabins then wasted a glittering chance when Moore was crushed on a run by Alex Cromer-Emond and Byron Archambault recovered the fumble on the Marauders 39. But Cousineau was unable to move the ball and Montreal was forced to punt. Moore missed the next set of downs, but returned late in the half.The pro-Carabins crowd sprang to life when Isaiah Mels fumbled the opening kickoff of the second half and Montreals J.C. Touchette recovered at the 42. Five plays later, Cousineau found Enchill with a nine-yard TD pass.The McMaster defence stifled Montreals next drive, and Ferguson answered with a drive leading to Crapignas 43-yard field goal at 9:54. Ferguson marched his offence again using a string of short passes to set up a 29-yard boot at 14:07.But Anthony Coadys second interception of the game shifted field position in Montreals favour early in the fourth, and a 32-yard Cousineau toss to Regis Cibasu put the ball on McMasters three, where Erlington ran it in at 4:12.Unfortunately, its the same story we had all year where our offence didnt put our team in good positions, said Ferguson, who went 27 for 41 for 195 yards. And our special teams didnt help out as much as they have all year.We put it all on our defence. Its difficult to end a game like that, but it was a fantastic drive by them to finish it off.Moore ended the game with 11 runs for 114 yards and a TD, while Montreals running back Erlrington was held to 36 yards on nine carries.It was a third straight victory by a Quebec conference team after Lavals wins in 2012 and 2013. McMaster, which beat Laval in 2011 and lost to them the following year, was in a third Vanier Cup game in four years.Former McGill star and 1987 Vanier Cup winner Michael Soles and ex-Governor General Adrienne Clarkson took part in pre-game ceremonies as honorary co-presidents. Charlie Brown Hawks Jersey . Lineup news, Fantasy and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking. HEROES St. Louis Blues – After rolling the San Jose Sharks for seven goals, for the second time in a week, the Blues have a bunch of players on hot streaks. Damian Jones Jersey . Andrews, Scotland - Oliver Wilson fired a final- round, 2-under 70 on Sunday and he held on to win the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship by one shot. . The Americans, skipped by John Shuster, seized the advantage in the eighth end by scoring five points for a 7-3 lead. The Czechs pulled two back in the ninth, but Shusters team of third Jeff Isaacson, second Jared Zezel and lead John Landsteiner ended with another point to secure the last Olympic berth on offer.NASHVILLE -- Tennessees search for a new coach has taken a turn to an old foe with the Titans interviewing Jim Caldwell. The Titans confirmed Wednesday that they had completed an interview with Caldwell, the former Indianapolis Colts coach and current Baltimore Ravens offensive co-ordinator. The team plane picked Caldwell up in Baltimore on Wednesday morning and was scheduled to return to Baltimore late Wednesday afternoon. Caldwell, 58, also has interviewed with the Washington Redskins and the Detroit Lions. He spent a decade with Indianapolis first as quarterbacks coach in Indianapolis with Peyton Manning. He replaced Tony Dungy as coach in 2009, and they reached the Super Bowl his first season only to lose to New Orleans in February 2010. He finished 26-22 in his three seasons before being fired in January 2012. Caldwell joined Baltimore as quarterbacks coach in February 2012 working with Joe Flacco before beiing promoted to offensive co-ordinator before the Ravens went on to win the Super Bowl. John Collins Jersey. The Ravens struggled this season finishing 29th in total offence and 30th running the ball. The Titans are one of five NFL teams still looking for a new coach after firing Mike Munchak after three seasons on Saturday. Bengals offensive co-ordinator Jay Gruden interviewed with Tennessee on Tuesday, and Cincinnati Bengals defensive co-ordinator Mike Zimmer reportedly is set to interview with the Titans on Thursday. The Titans team plane had a flight plan filed to head to Cincinnatis airport in northern Kentucky after leaving Baltimore on Wednesday night. This is only the teams second coaching search since leaving Texas for Tennessee in 1997, and the first conducted by Webster. Tennessee went 7-9 this season extending a playoff drought to five straight years with the last post-season win back in January 2003. ' ' '
