Rideau District Lions went a long way to face a familiar opponent in the bronze medal game of the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations girls A basketball championship Saturday afternoon in Windsor.
The outcome was familiar, too.
As they did in the Eastern Ontario final, the Lions defeated North Grenville of Kemptville, this time 47-29.
The medal represented an improvement for the Lions, who were eliminated in the quarter-finals at OFSAA a year ago.
Saturday morning, Rideau, the fourth-seeded team in the tournament, fell 34-29 to No. 1 seed Jean-Vanier of Welland. It was Rideau’s first loss in four games at the 16-team competition, and it was one in which the lead changed hands throughout: Rideau led by a point after the first quarter; trailed by five, 15-10, at halftime, but had regained a 22-21 lead going into the final period.

Regiopolis Notre Dame Panthers lost just two senior boys volleyball matches all season. Unfortunately, they both came on the final day at OFSAA.
Losers of just two sets in 19 league and playoff matches going into the semifinals of the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations AAA championship tournament in Windsor, the Panthers were beaten 3-0 by Scarborough Agincourt on Saturday morning. They then bowed in straight sets to St. Michael’s of Toronto in the bronze medal match Saturday afternoon.
Regi has been in the provincial championship event each of the last 11 years. This is the first time during that stretch the Panthers, four-time and defending OFSAA champions, have not come home with a medal.
Regi ended the tournament 5-2.
Agincourt went on to defeat Mississauga 3-2 in the gold medal match.

Regiopolis Notre Dame Panthers have reached the semifinals at the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations AAA boys volleyball championship tournament in Windsor, after they defeated Louis-Riel of Gloucester in straight sets in a quarter-final match Friday night.
The Panthers, unbeaten in five matches at the 20-team competition, prevailed 28-26, 25-14, 25-22.
Seeded ninth despite a 14-0 record in league and playoff competition—and the fact the Panthers are the defending provincial champions—Regi will face No. 2 Agincourt of Scarborough at 11 a.m. Saturday in one semifinal. Agincourt, also without a loss through five matches at the tournament, ousted Jacob Hespeler of Cambridge, also in straight sets, in its quarter-final Friday night.Read More >>
Rideau District Lions will play in the semifinals tomorrow, but the La Salle Black Knights are coming home from their Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations girls basketball championship.
The Lions needed overtime to dispose of Timmins O’Gorman, 54-49, in a quarter-final at the single-A tournament Friday night in Windsor. At the AA competition in Kingsville, however, the Knights were eliminated by a 43-38 defeat at the hands of Wallaceburg.
As a result of their victory, the Lions will play the winner of Friday night’s Jean Vanier-Ridley quarter-final in a semifinal Saturday morning at 10 o’clock.Read More >>
Defending champion Regiopolis Notre Dame Panthers begin their bid to retain that Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations boys AAA volleyball title Friday night in a quarter-final match with Louis Riel of Gloucester.
The Panthers, seeded ninth, finished the preliminary round of the tournament in Windsor undefeated, after they beat St. Michael’s of Toronto 2-1 Friday morning and Waterdown 2-0 (25-11, 25-14) Friday afternoon.
St. Mike’s, the No. 3 seed, beat Regi 25-19 in the first set, handing the undefeated Panthers just their second set loss of the season, but the Panthers came back to win the match, 25-23, 15-11.
Louis Riel, the tournament’s 11th seed, emerged from its preliminary pool having won three of its four matches.
Three of the top eight seeds did not reach the championship round.Read More >>
