Reserve team head coach Patrick Viollat said: "I am disappointed because the players worked well and respected the game plan. We will learn from this defeat. We are a young team and we played against an experienced team on a difficult field. It's good to learn from this kind of experience. The game was choppy and came down to details. We were in place tactically but without being dangerous enough. The first goal hurt us and then we pushed to equalize which led to the second goal. I remain satisfied with the overall performance and the mentality of the players."

CF Montréal’s reserve team will play on the road again next week against defending champion FC Laval on Sunday, May 28th (5:00pm) at Cégep Montmorency.
