Blues & Belles Score Historic First Up Wins
Montreal City Bluebelles 5.8 (38) defeated Plateau Eagles 3.3 (21)
Montreal City Blues 13.11 (89) defeated Old Port Dockers 4.8 (32)
Both the City Blues & Bluebelles scored historic first up victories in Round 2 of the AFL Quebec season this past Sunday. Under glorious sunshine the Bluebelles took on a determined Plateau Eagles outfit jumping out to an early lead. The Eagles never gave up, pushing the Belles right to the final siren, Montreal City taking a hard fought 17 point victory. Jennifer Dumais was sensational in defence while rookie Charlene Colnat had a day out dominating up forward and kicking her first AFL Quebec goal.
The Blue's men limped into Round 2 with injuries to several players reducing the squad, but the addition of Ashley Klass a big bonus for the underdogs. The Dockers were flat from the first bounce, the star-studded Old Port team lacking fresh legs as the young Blues team bolted out of the blocks and piled on a 6 goal lead by halftime. The Dockers would rally, but the Blues finished strong eventually running away with a 57 point win.
Although early in the season, wins in the men's division are crucial as all teams push to make the final four and avoid missing out on the post-season. Currently the Blues 1-1 record have them in 3rd place behind the unbeaten Wooders and Bombers.
