Undefeated Sun Youth Hornets – Sun Youth’s midget football team is heading to finals this weekend! With a perfect record in the regular season, it’s fair to say that they are the favourites to win. This comes as no surprise to anyone who’s been watching Quebec amateur football, as they have some of the best young talent in the province. The Hornets high powered offence is lead by their QB, Eloa Latendresse-Regimbald, who is the obvious candidate for league MVP this year. The Quebec Midget Football League (QMFL) finals will be this Sunday November 4th at Stade Hébert, starting at 3:00 pm, and will oppose the North Shore Mustangs to the Sun Youth Hornets. The game should be a good one, as the Hornets and Mustangs have been cross-town rivals for years.
Sun Youth has a long football tradition going back to the earliest days of the organization. The motivation that led to the creation of Sun Youth in 1954 was to allow disadvantaged youths residing in the St. Louis district in Montreal to play sports. Today, almost all the young people who attend the organization play sports, either within one of Sun Youth’s sports teams, or at its day camp. Through the years, many former Hornets football and basketball players have made the jump to the college, university and even professional level.
Stade Hébert is located at 7655, rue Colbert in Saint-Leonard, Tel: 514 729-2708
