Louis-Riel Rebelles win senior boys 'AA' soccer championship

The Louis-Riel Rebelles avenged their only loss of the season on Wednesday and in doing so successfully defended the National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association senior boys 'AA' soccer championship.

The Rebelles lost 2-0 to the Gisèle-Lalonde Titans on Oct. 11. At that time it was their only defeat in two years as they finished last season with a 6-0-1 record on their way to winning the NCSSAA championship.

After the loss to the Titans, the Rebelles reeled off four straight wins, including a 3-0 win over Woodroffe High School in the semi-finals. During that span they allowed just one goal.

The Titans, meanwhile, were riding a six game unbeaten streak heading into Wednesday's championship game that included a 3-0 win over École secondaire Paul Desmarais in the semi-finals.

In Wednesday's final, it took the Rebelles just 10 minutes to get on the scoreboard. The goal by Marius Ducet came off a free kick from the sideline by Dan Muimba who curled it into the box for Ducet to put away.

Titans' goalkeeper Hugo Bohlen had to make a diving save to keep the score 1-0 just six minutes later when the Rebelles' Xavier Fournier set up Yanis Ammari in close for an excellent scoring opportunity.

The Rebelles second goal came in the 26th minute when Nizar Aboueloumoum took advantage of a miscue by the Titans to score what is probably the easiest goal of his career. Thinking the play was offside, the Giséle-Lalonde players stopped playing long enough for Aboueloumoum to poke the ball past Bohlen and into the net. The Titans protested the play, but to no avail, and the score was 2-0 in favour of the Rebelles. Which is how it remained until the end of the game.

The Titans had a coule of chances in the second half of the game, but they were unable to get anything past Ryan Spaans who posted his fifth clean sheet of the season in eight games.

The Rebelles will now get the winter off before they will have to prepare for the OFSSAA provincial 'AA' championships in Bradford during the first week of June.
