Rimbey High School Spartans Football team has ended its season with a silver medal.

Coach Bill Bramfield said he is very pleased and proud of the team and believes they have continued to improve throughout the year.

The Rimbey team suffered a 46-28 loss at the hands of St. Joseph Collegiate from Brooks in Edmonton during the provincials last weekend.

“That’s the way it goes,” said Bramfield. “It wasn’t our best game and Brooks is a strong team.”

However, the coach is quick to point out his Rimbey team was a strong contender throughout the season and a force to be reckoned with.

“From the beginning to the end of the season, they did better each week. As the year went on, they just got stronger and stronger.”

Bramfield said the second place finish is something to be proud of.

“We shouldn’t be disappointed with a second place finish,” he said. “We did well and we need to remember the other teams show up to win, as well. “And”, he added, optimistically, “there’s always next year.”
