The Rimbey Spartans high school football team has capped off a perfect no loss season by bringing home the Provincial title.

The team traveled to the final round of provincials held at the University of Lethbridge last weekend, defeating Millwood Christian School 36 – 6.

Head coach Bill Bramfield is proud of his team, noting the boys came through the final game with flying colours.

“We actually held Millwood to six points. It was their first loss all year and they had been averaging 82 points per game.”

Bramfield is impressed with the quality of play his team has demonstrated.

“For us, it went very well. We had quality of play on the field, the team was focused, well behaved and listened to the coaches. It was clear they were there to play football.”

The Spartans won the first round of playoffs Nov. 8 when they went up against Holy Redeemer School from Edson and defeated them 57-22.

The second round of playoffs was against École Descrochers School from Jasper and once again the Spartans emerged victorious, enjoying a 55-23 win.

The first and second rounds of playoffs were held in Lacombe.

Going through an entire season and the playoffs undefeated is not an easy feat and Bramfield credits his team for a job well done.

“We had the majority of our team back, the boys were prepared and our talent pool was quite deep.”

Bramfield said The Spartans, who also won Provincials last year, are a pleasure to coach.

“They are quality people.”
