The Louis Riel Rebelles are city champions once again after downing the St. Peter Knights 56-35 on Tuesday to capture the school's fourth consecutive senior girls Tier 1 basketball championship.

In a game marked by turnovers and poor shooting, the Rebelles turned the ball over less and made more shots to pull off the victory thanks in large part to an explosive second quarter in which they went on a 16-2 run after the Knights had tied the score at 12-12.

The Knights turned the ball over eight times during the disastrous second quarter. At one point they turned the ball over on four consecutive trips down the floor and only managed to throw up four shots compared to 12 for the Rebelles who sank five in row to open the quarter before going 0-5.

The Knight never got to within 10 points the rest of the way as the Rebelles methodically extended their lead to 22 points before coasting home to a 21-point win.

Ashley Beaudoin-Polacek (10) led all scorers with 22 points, while Nicki Hadwen (14) added 10 points for the Rebelle and Vanessa Gilles (6) added eight points for the winning team which also got scoring from Arielle Kabangu (6 points), Julia Dostaler (5 points) and Noemie Bellehumeur-Moya (3 points).

Breanna Phillipps led the Knights with 11 points followed by Michaela Branker with 10 points, Sydney Miezitis with six points and Analyssa Cardenas and Rachel Radu with three points each.

Both teams will be heading to the OFSAA provincial championships thanks to their respective semi-final wins. The Rebelles downed Longfields-Davidson Heights to earn a berth in the AAA tournament in Windsor and the Knights beat the Glebe Gryphons to qualify for the Quad-A championships in London.

The AAA and Quad-A distinctions are assigned to the schools before the season based on the size of their respective student populations.
