Lumsden Devils Win Provincial Championship
Hon. Mr. Stewart: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I’m proud to rise in the House today and announce that the Lumsden Devils 3A nine-man football team last month won their second consecutive provincial title. On November 11th they defeated the Kindersley Kobras in an impressive championship match, winning 68 to 20. Being able to take one provincial title is an incredible accomplishment, but being able to defend your title for a second year in a row truly speaks to the exceptional athletes and committed coaching staff from Lumsden.
Mr. Speaker, the Devils went undefeated this football season under the direction of head coach Luke Dunville. Facing adversity during their first touchdown attempt, the Devils were able to prove to themselves that they were the best team in the tournament. To celebrate the legacy of the grade 12 athletes, each graduating player had the opportunity to be captain during the final game. The coaching staff and returning athletes look forward to continuing their winning streak and plan to return next season with the same commitment, passion, and dedication to the football field.
Mr. Speaker, I invite all members to please join me in congratulating the coaching staff and talented athletes from the 3A Lumsden Devils nine-man football team on their second consecutive provincial title. Thank you.
