It should be no surprise that when a player sets 5 single season records and 2 career marks that he will be the one leading the way for the 2014 N.F.C. All Stars and Awards? The Sault Steeler's Josh Gauthier has been tabbed as the League M.V.P., Offensive Player of the Year, August Kangro Memorial Award recipient for most points and All Star at Running Back from the voting by League Coaches and Players. For some of the Awards and all All Star positions, a weighted formula is also used in the determination of such honours.
Oakville's Arkiell Jack, who set new records for kick returns and kick return yardage this past season was selected as the All Star Kick Returner and also earned a nod as one of the Receivers as well.
The complete listing of recipients is attached below.
after 1st quarter - Montreal 7-0
at the half - Montreal 20-1
after 3rd quarter - Montreal 20-1
FINAL - Montreal 28-5
Transit win their second consecutive N.F.C. title and will trek west to most likely Calgary on Saturday September 27 to play the Alberta champs for the C.M.F.L. crown. First round of the Alberta playoffs got underway this evening.

As well, the updated Champs and Champ MVP files are attached below.
The 61st battle for the Plaunte Memorial Trophy is upon us as the Sault Ste. Marie Steelers make the trek to Montreal to take on the Transit. This is a rematch of last years final when the Transit made a 35 yard field goal with 18 seconds remaining to take the N.F.C. title with the 24-23 victory. The Transit then went on to tame the Calgary Gators to take the C.M.F.L. title as well.
Like last year, both squads ended up with 7-1 records and did not play each other during the regular season. The difference this time around is that the Transit allowed fewer points in the regular season, which is the first tie breaker when teams do not play each other, hence why the game is in Montreal this time around.
Montreal 40 at G.T.A. 36
Tri City 0 at Sault 29
