‚ÄčSr. Boys Soccer LKSSAA Champs!
‚ÄčCongratulations goes to your Senior Boys Soccer Team who are now your LKSSAA AA Champions!!
What an amazing game last night. We had all hands on deck for yesterday's face off against WDSS. It was not going to be an easy game as the intensity and grudges from our previous encounter was still evident. With that said, our boys kept a cool head and stuck to the game plan which frustrated our opponents to no end. Lleyton Ticknor could not be contained defensively. With the support of Isaiah Burnham, both Isaiah and Lleyton were able to create many offensive attacks. One of which, was a cross through the 18 yard box that connected with Aydan Claxton for our first goal of the match. The game continued to escalate physically, but thanks to the cool head and excellent ball control of both Jordan Dabanovich and Kaden Burnham in the middle, we were able to maintain composure through it. Unfortunately, WDSS was able to even the match, but our boys would not back down. A perfectly placed through ball to Lleyton would once again, but the wolfpack on top. Special mention goes to our defensive specialist in the backfield that were nearly perfect. This includes, Joseph DeBlock, Will Payie, Nathan Roberts, and Owen Evoy. Kaleb Robinson did a great job of keeping their defense busy in the second half which helped to keep the ball out of Our own end. What a great game played by all and everyone should be very proud of what we were able to accomplish this season. Stay tuned for more information about SWOSSAA. Great work wolfpack!‚Äč

‚ÄčSenior Boys Soccer
‚ÄčCongratulations to the senior boys soccer team battling against all odds to come out on top against the top seeded LCCVI. Lleyton Ticknor led off scoring with a blazing attack through the Lancer defensive line early on at the start of the game. Unfortunately, due to a controversial call LCCVI was able to tie it up just before the end of the first half with a penalty kick. This did not deter the team as they continued to pepper
the Lancer goaltender with shots. Thankfully Dylan "The Wall" Ferguson was up to the challenge and denied a number of sure shots through. The stalemate continued through extra time which forced a
decision through penalty kicks. Ferg was again up to the challenge and did not disappoint. Great work by everyone last night. We're all very proud of your performance and looking forward to the finals tomorrow
night in Wallaceburg. More information to come later tonight. Keep an eye out in our Google Classroom for more information.‚Äč

Grounded in ceremony and Indigenous values, the Moose Hide Campaign is a grassroots movement inviting Indigenous and non-Indigenous men and boys, alongside all Canadians, to stand up against violence towards women, children and all those along the gender continuum. Wearing a moose hide pin is an outward sign of your commitment to honour, respect, and protect the people in your life and to stand up against violence. Please visit the Den throughout the day to get your free moose hide pin or find the table that will be set up near the cafeteria entrance by the main foyer during lunch to get a pin and learn more about the campaign and the need to take action to end violence against women and girls. ‚Äč

‚ÄčGirls & Boys Soccer
‚Äč‚ÄčBoth the Sr. Boys and Girls Soccer teams represented the Wolfpack well yesterday afternoon. They faced off against WDSS and did not disappoint. The boys team started off the double-header with and extremely physical match that went back and forth. Pedro Astorino was entertaining to watch as he dismantled the WDSS defense several times throughout the game and Dylan Ferguson wowed fans with several saves that kept our Wolfpack in the game. Amazing passing up the field led to our first goal by Lleyton Ticknor which was assisted by Isaiah Burnham. Our girls did very well defeating WDSS in a 1-0 game with the goal being scored by Morgan Smith. This match was also a battle that required physical play and strategic passing. Paige McKinlay records her first shutout of the season helping the girls team to yesterday's victory. Well done by both teams and a huge thank you to everyone that came out to support our teams. Hope to see you out next week as we face off against LCCVI on our back campus on Monday.

‚ÄčMissing & Murdered Ingigenous Women, Girls and 2 Spirited people
‚ÄčViolence against Indigenous women, girls and 2 spirited people continues to rise. They are 16 times more likely than non-indigenous women to be targeted and killed and 12 times more likely to be murdered or go missing. In 2020, one in 5 women killed in Canada were Indigenous. The missing women and girls crisis is at a national state of emergency. Families of lost women face an uphill battle to find their loved ones. In 2021 the Canadian Government released a National Action Plan in response to the National Inquiry on MMIWG2S+. It contains 231 Calls for Justice. Please wear red tomorrow to recognize and acknowledge those Indigenous peoples who are gone but not forgotten.
