Humboldt, Watrous Crowned Provincial Football Champions (November 13/2010)
Humboldt and Watrous captured the title of Provincial Champion in the 9-man and 2A 6-man categories respectively with convincing victories in the Provincial Football Finals.

In the 9-man final, Humboldt took on the host Delisle team.  The first half was fairly even but a goal line stand by the Humboldt defense followed by a key touchdown in the dying seconds of the half created an 8 point lead and swung momentum their way.  Two key strips in the second half contributed to a 37-7 final score.  This was Humboldt's second Provincial Championship in three years.

In Watrous, the host Wildcats returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown against Hudson Bay and never relinquished the lead.  It was a high scoring affair, but very close at the half, with Watrous holding on to a 36-27 lead.  The third quarter sealed the victory for Watrous as they scored four majors to take command.  The final score was 80-35.  Watrous last won the Provincial Championship in 2006 (and finished 2nd in 2007).

It was another medal haul for HCAA soccer teams at the 2010 SHSAA Provincial Championships, with four teams earning top three finishes in their respective categories, including two Provincial Champions.

The Lake Lenore boys thrilled their hometown crowd by earning their fourth Provincial 1A Boys Soccer Championship in the past six years.  In the semifinal, Lake Lenore scored at the 20 minute of the second half to break a 2-2 tie and finished with a 4-2 victory.  In the championship final, Lake Lenore led from start to finish in defeating Chief Poundmaker 3-1.

In 1A Girls, it was a familiar match-up in the championship final, as Lake Lenore and Middle Lake met for an amazing 7th time this season, but this time with the provincial gold medal on the line.  The game was tied at 1-1 after regulation, and 20 minutes of overtime solved nothing.  Middle Lake won the shoot-out and the gold medal, with Lake Lenore taking home silver.

In 7 v 7 Boys, Muenster took home the bronze by defeating the host team 2-1 in the third place game.

In 2A Girls, the host Humboldt Collegiate team captured the consolation side (5th place).
