OrleansOnline.ca unveils Teams of the Year for 2015

OrleansOnline.ca has unveiled its choices for male and female High School Team of the Year and Minor Sports Team of the Year for 2015.

The selection of Female High School Team of the Year came down to the St. Peter Knights varsity girls rugby team, which came a try short in their quest for the OFSAA provincial championship in June; the Louis-Riel Rebelles varsity girls hockey team which won the school’s seventh straight National Capital championship last February; and the Louis-Riel Rebelles senior girls soccer team which won the OFSAA ‘AA’ title last spring.

And the winner is... the Lady Rebelles soccer team. The OFSAA championship was the school’s third AA soccer crown in the last six years.

The Male High School Team of the Year was the St. Peter Knights junior boys football team which went undefeated in winning the city championship, which they dedicated to assistant coach Mike Heney who died from a heart attack on the eve of their first game.

The Male Minor Sports Team of the Year was also of the pig-skin variety. The Cumberland Panthers peewee team went undefeated for the second year in a row in successfully defending the NCAFA A-Cup championship.

For many of the first year players on the team, the A-Cup win was their fourth NCAFA championship in five years. It also improved their record during that period to 53-1.

The Female Minor Sports Team of the Year is the Cumberland Cobras U13 Academy team which lost just once in 14 ERSL regular season games and four ERSL Cup games on their way to winning both championships.

They also became the only Cobras team to make it to the Ontario Cup semi-finals where they lost 2-1 to the eventual winners.

Their lone regular season loss was a lightning shortened 1-0 result at the hands of Ottawa South United.
Play was suspended due to lightning midway through the second half with OSU leading 1-0. Rather than follow ERSL protocol and allow 30 minutes to pass before resuming play, the referee called the game and let the score stand.
Another game, which had been going on at the same time, did resume play after a 30 minute delay and was played in full.
