Leduc High School Soccer

Pipestone Flyer

One of the few sports not recognized by the Alberta Schools Athletic Association (ASAA) is Soccer. Since 1957 when the ASAA was first formed to provide a provincial tournament for basketball the ASAA has added eleven additional sports for provincial competition, but soccer has remained an orphan. 

    Several of the ASAA’s zones do sponsor soccer including both the Edmonton Public and Metro Leagues. The Leduc and Beaumont girls’ teams play in the Pool A division of the City Conference along with teams from Archbishop Oscar Romeo, Holy Trinity, St Francis Xavier (SFX), and Louis St Laurent.

    In girls play Leduc began their season on Tuesday, May 7th when they hosted SFX. The SFX Rams were able to blank the Tigers 3 to 0. On Thursday, May 9th the Tigers played the Archbishop Oscar Romeo Ravens and lost in a tightly played game by a 2 to 1 score..

    Meanwhile the girls from Beaumont played Louis St. Laurent swamping the Barons in a 5 to 0 route on Tuesday, May 7th. This victory was short lived, as the Bandits were defeated the next day by the St. Francis Xavier Rams 4 to 1.

    This year Christ the King (CTK) and Beaumont have boys teams playing in Metro’s City Conference’s Pool A along with teams from Ardrossan, Holy Trinity, Strathcona Christian, Archbishop Jordan and Louis St. Laurent.

    The Beaumont Bandits kicked off the season with a 4 to 0 victory over the Eagles from Strathcona Christian on Monday May 6th. In their second game they played Holy Trinity on Wednesday May 8th and took a narrow 4 to 3 victory.

    The CTK boys were not as fortunate as the Chargers lost 5 to 2 to the Archbishop Jordan Scotts on May 6th and their game against Ardrossan scheduled for Wednesday, May 8th was postponed until a later date.

    Playoffs will begin on Thursday May 23rd with a cross over with teams from Pool B and the championship game scheduled for Tuesday June 4th.

    CTK is playing in the City Division II league with teams from J.H. Picard, Maurice Lavallee, and Strathcona Christian. For various reasons the games CTK was scheduled to play last week had to be either rescheduled or postponed. Action for CTK will begin this week when they host Strathcona Christian on Tuesday, May 14th.  All four teams will qualify for playoffs beginning on Thursday, May 30th with the championship game also being played on Tuesday, June 4th.
