Quebec City (U SPORTS) – Justine Lalande scored the game’s only goal in the 75th minute to lead the Montreal Carabins to a 1-0 victory over the Laval Rouge et Or in the gold medal final of the 2022 U SPORTS Women Soccer Championships presented by Groupe Océan in Quebec City. It is the second time that Montreal’s women soccer program wins the Gladys Bean Trophy.

The Carabins rushed the opposite zone in numbers in the 75th minute to break the scoreless tie. The tournament’s MVP Mégane Sauvé sent the ball on the left flank to Justine Lalande, who took her time to put the ball to the left of Laval keeper Myriam Labrecque. This marks the end of an incredible season for Sauvé who also won the RSEQ Player of the Year Award.

The Carabins win a sixth U SPORTS medal (two gold, three silver and a bronze). Their previous title was captured in 2017. Bronze medallists in 2021, the Rouge et Or also wins a sixth medal in program history and a first silver (two gold and three bronze). The last time the tournament was played in Quebec City in 2014, Laval won its first national title.
