LEGENDARY LORDS COACH PASSES AWAY

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.

2019 GHAC CHAMPIONSHIP

ST. THOMAS MORE KNIGHTS - 47

NELSON LORDS - 21

Trailing 40-7 at the half Nelson made the game exciting as they putting up two major scores on touchdowns from Jackson Cooling and James Priestner and continued to compete until the final whistle.

HORNS DOWN... NELSON DOMINATES IN BIG WIN

2019 GHAC SEMI-FINAL

NELSON LORDS - 36

CORPUS CHRISTI LONGHORNS - 8

The weather circumstances surrounding this game with heavy snowfall two days prior were already interesting and as the snow fell during the game at Nelson Stadium the setting was incredible under the lights. Nelson took advantage of a big home crowd and jumped out to a 16-0 halftime lead. First half touchdowns went to Luca Rosiello and Jackson Somerville with the defence adding a safety and a two point conversion catch from Jackson Cooling. Nelson appeared to put the game away early in the 3rd with touchdowns from Rosiello and Cooling before the Longhorns would get on the scoreboard. A big return and penalty aided touchdown drive put Corpus back into the game before the Lords defence shut the door and Luca Rosiello added his third rushing touchdown of the night to seal the victory. The win sends Nelson to the GHAC Championship game at St. Thomas More for a re-match with the Knights.

JR LORDS GET SHUTOUT BY RAVENS TO END SEASON

2019 JUNIOR METROBOWL PLAYOFFS

ST. ROCH RAVENS - 25

NELSON LORDS - 0

The JR Lords season came to an end on a snowy and muddy field at St. Roch on Tuesday. Nelson just could not find the endzone and a fumble on the 1 yard line with a chance to take a lead at the half proved too much to over come. The Ravens would pull away in the second half and put the game out of reach. The Lords will see the remaining players from the 2018 MetroBowl team move up to the Senior ranks having won back-to-back Halton titles and keeping the streak alive as the team looks for its 7th title in 2020. A big thank you to all our JR parents and supporters for another great season!

2019 HSSAA CHAMPIONSHIP -- HAYDEN HUSKIES @ NELSON LORDS

NELSON - 45

HAYDEN - 0

Nelson got their game on track after a slow start due to only having played 2 games in the last 4 weeks. Quarterback Keagan Hall spread the ball around to the multiple weapons on offence and built a 28-0 halftime lead on a pair of touchdowns from Jackson Cooling, and singles from James Priestner and Jackson Somerville. The second half was more of the same with the Lords adding two more majors, a 70-yard run by Liam Keary and James Priestner's second major of the day. Jake Bennett would add a late field goal as well as being perfect on 6 converts. The Lords defence shut the door the rest of the way as Hayden rarely cross into Nelson territory on the day. Nelson posted their 3rd shutout in a row on their way to capturing their 24th Halton title in school history. This was the fourth straight Halton Championship for Nelson at the Senior level. Lords receiver Jahlique Armstrong became the second Lord since 2000 to win five Halton Titles as a Nelson Lord.
