It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of legendary Lords Head Coach and Nelson Teacher Tom Johnson. From ‘66-76 Tom left a lasting impact on so many and is remembered as a family man who was extremely proud of all his children and their accomplishments. As the Head Football Coach at Nelson, Tom coached and mentored hundreds of student athletes winning league titles in 1975 & 1977. Prior to his Nelson career, Tom played football for the Burlington Braves before going stateside in 1962 where he went on to play at Kent State University in Ohio on scholarship. He lettered each year and earned the nickname "The Canadian Crusher".

2019 OFSAA INDEPENDENT BOWL CHAMPIONS!

2019 OFSAA INDEPENDENT BOWL

NELSON LORDS - 35

ASSUMPTION LIONS - 14

The Nelson Lords took home their 6th OFSAA BOWL title in school history winning the Independent Bowl for the first time with a 35-14 win at Ron Joyce Stadium as part of the 2019 OFSAA Bowl Series. A wildly entertaining game saw some fantastic plays from both sides and arguably a play of the year candidate from the Assumption side in the loss. Nelson jumped out to an early lead on a 30 yard touchdown connection from Keagan Hall to Liam Keary. Luca Rosiello would punch in a 10 yard run to put the Lords up 14-0 midway through the first quarter. A Jackson Somerville 2 yard touchdown run had Nelson running away with things midway through the second. The Lions would add a major to pull within two scores before Nelson drove the length of the field and appeared to go up 28-7. A penalty nullified the touchdown and a crazy blocked field goal return suddenly saw the score at 21-14 at the half. Nelson would take control in the second half and put the game away with an 80-yard touchdown connection from Hall to Keary. Luca Rosiello would add his second major late in the 4th to seal the Lords 6th OFSAA Victory. Nelson tallied a whopping 610 yards of offence while holding the Lions to just 162.
