About: Louis Riel’s men’s and women’s soccer teams shared in provincial high school medallist glory at the OFSAA ‘A’ Soccer Championships. The men’s Re- belles team outscored opponents 11-4 in pool play at the Hamilton-held championships, propelling them to the tournament’s playoffs with a 3-1 record. They beat Pickering’s Ronald-Marion 3-1 in the quarterfinals before being eliminated from gold medal contention by Alexandria’s Glengarry High by an identical 3-1 score in the semis. The Rebelles men beat St. Paul of the Peel Region 2-0 to win the bronze medal.

On the women’s side, the Rebelles swept through pool play with a 4-0 record on a 11-2 goal differential.
