William Dion kicked four field goals to break a CIS football record as the University of Sherbrooke Vert & Or routed the Concordia Stingers 48-6 on Saturday.

The fifth-year senior from Drummondville, Que., went 4-for-4 to boost his career total to 75. He came into the game tied with former Calgary all-Canadian Aaron Ifield and broke the national record with a 30-yard kick at 12:44 of the first quarter.

He added a 12-yarder in the second quarter before splitting the uprights from 15 and 11 yards out in the fourth.
