The Louis Riel Rebelles are champions once again after downing the Sir Robert Borden Bengals 1-0 in the NCSSAA 'AA' senior boys soccer championship on Thursday.

After a lacklustre opening 10 minutes, the Rebelles turned their game up a notch in the later stages of the first half, forcing four corner kicks in the span of a minute and a half before finally converting one.

Sam Pierre delivered the game winning strike that fell to the feet of Grade 12 senior Zach Louis-Seize who converted if for what turned out to be the game winner.

"I was just in the right spot at the right time," said Louis-Seize, who was substituted into the game minutes before he scored the game winning goal.

The win is sweet redemption for the Rebelles who lost to John McCrae in the 'AA' championship last year in a game that had to be decided in penalty kicks.

The Rebelles were hoping to get a chance to avenge their loss to John McCrae, but the Bulldogs were upset by Sir Robert Borden in the semi-finals.

Louis Riel's only loss this season was to Deslauriers. They tied the Bulldogs 1-1 in their only meeting on Sept. 27, and Ashbury held them to a scoreless draw a week later.

The OFSAA "AA" provincial championships will be played next June in Stratford. The boys soccer championships are traditionally held in the spring.
