Skinner connected with Julian Bailey four times for 62 yards and a TD on the Rouge et Or's (7-0) final scoring play of the game. Pascal Lochard rushed for 33 yards and a touchdown, while Antony Auclair caught a TD pass.

Boris Bede kicked a field goal, two rouge points and three converts for Laval. Twelve of the Rouge et Or's first 13 points came from safeties.

Maxime St-Onge scored Sherbrooke's (2-5) lone points on a 16-yard field goal.
