Many football teams can't say they have completed an undefeated season with a provincial championship. But Delisle made that possibility into reality last Saturday.

The Delisle Rebels became 1 of 6 football teams to win a provincial football title last weekend after outmuscling the Indian Head Broncs to a 43-20 victory at home in the 2A nine man provincial final. Delisle Composite School did not lose a single game this season, finishing with a 6-0 record during the regular season and going 4-0 in the postseason.

"For the most part, we dominated with our running game on the ground. We pounded the ball and ran down the clock while we wore down their defensive line," said Jaren Vetter, the team's defensive coordinator whg splits the head coaching duties with offensive coordinator Ken Byers.

"Winning a provincial championship is incredible and the boys were beyond ecstatic."

The win comes after the Broncs upset the Rebels in last year's quarterfinal round. The Broncs went on to lose in the final against Shaunavon High School Shadows.

Vetter says it was the cherry on top to get revenge in this year's final against Indian Head, but explains how the championship was a direct result of hard work all season long from his rookies to his veteran grade 12 players.

"We had a really strong grade 12 group this year with depth and talent that has been four years in the making," he said. "That's what is rewarding in football. When you see all the hard work from outside and the committment, the payoff is really nice."

Two buses full of Indian Head fans made the drive up to Delisle for the big game last Saturday. Despite the strong away support from the visitors, the home fans were loud and proud for their Rebels and cheered them on to the championship.

Following the title win, Vetter mentions how the football team could not have pulled off their successful season without the incredible support from their community.

"I want to send a shout to our parent and community volunteers who make it possible," he explained. "It's a huge undertaking to host these kinds of events. We're very fortunate to have great community support."

This is Delisle Composite School's first provincial football championship since 2011 and their fourth in the last 16 years.
