Women’s Basketball team only played on Friday night vs the CMU Blazers and this is what the 9th year Head Coach Jaenas Pangilinan had to say “Tough game all around for the team as a whole. No one played well. 4th year Guard Jodene Kowalchuk from Selkirk MB played tough defensively, but statistically we had a very poor showing. 1st year Tate Starkell from Dakota Collegiate got hurt early, playing only 4 minutes so our rotation got messed up” as the Rebels lost by 23 points with the finals score of 75-52. Player of the game was 4th year Guard Jodene Kowalchuk putting up 11 points to go along with her 12 rebounds. Women’s Basketball
Women’s Futsal took on USB Le Rouge on Saturday night as they would go on to lose to the defending champs with the score of 5-2. This is what the 9th year Head Coach Doug Lawrie had to say about the game against the defending champions. “We played the game with only one substitute and gave it a very good effort. It was 2-2 at the half, and we forced their GK to make many brilliant saves, and hit 2 posts. However, the lack of bench depth started talking its toll in the 2nd half and we couldn’t hold off a very strong USB team who had 12 returning players from their previous Soccer and Futsal championship teams. 3rd year Pvt Jessica Gzebb from Miles Macdonell High School scored the first goal (the 2nd being an ‘own goal’). 2nd year GK Abigail Wilson from Portage La Prairie played a very strong game in goal, and 2nd year Wing Kezia Balzer from River East Collegiate was out standing throughout the game.
Men’s Futsal also took on USB Le Rouge on Friday evening. Rebels ended up losing the game by 3 goals, final score being 4-7. Goals coming from 3rd year defence Minh Man Tran from Vietnam scoring 2 goals, 1st year Defence Devin Racicot from St Andrews SK scoring one and 1st year Defence Bailey Mulhall from Dakota Collegiate scoring the 4th goal.
