The campus was full of people and excitement as RJC hosted the home volleyball and soccer tournament for 2015. Four out of the five fall sports teams were in action this weekend. The weather was beautiful for the soccer tournament. The fall colours of the leaves on the trees put on a show of their own!
The boys soccer team hosted Meadow lake, LCBI, and Chief Poundmaker/Little Pine and played 4 games over the two days. RJC lost in the consolation final to LCBI, 6-5.
The Rosthern Longhorns opened the 2015 football season on a high note, defeating visiting Spiritwood High School 46-36. Rosthern led throughout the game with touchdowns coming on long runs by quarterback Brock Z., running back Carter D. and end Jordy K. (RHS). Spiritwood created a couple of turnovers in the second half and capitalized on them narrowing the score but Rosthern got a late touchdown from Carter to put the game away.
LongHorns see action again on Thursday when they travel to Big River for their second league game on Sept 17th at 4:00 .
The girls soccer team were on the road for their first game of the season. They travelled to Outlook on September 8th where they lost a hard fought battle against LCBI 4-3. On September 9th, the girls hosted their first home game against Stobart. Despite strong play from both our offence and defence, RJC lost to Stobart 4-0. Next home game is Sept 16 at 4:00 vs Martensville.
