As a Rebel, Leah was a team Captain, the top scorer in Soccer, selected to the MCAC All-Conference team and winner of an Athletic Scholarship.

After taking the 2013-14 season off, Jackie Tessier has continued her goal-scoring form from years previous. Tessier’s goal last Saturday against Ryerson brought her to within one of the Queen’s women’s soccer all-time scoring record, previously held by Eilish McConville at a mark of 53 goals. The following day, Tessier not only tied the record with her first goal, a beautiful header at the near post, but surpassed it when she took a through ball from the Queen’s defense and placed the ball just inside the right post.
Jackie is a graduate of the Bonivital Flames soccer program, representing the club for 5 consecutive years (2005 - 2009) at Club National tournaments. Jackie is a Music Major at Queen's, and has enjoyed great team and personal success in university soccer, including twice being named to the National All Star team. We at Bonivital are very proud of her success!
Congratulations to Coach Mario Audino and the Bonivital U12 Boys who won the East St Paul Prairie Classic championship in their age division. The team went undefeated over seven games en route to claiming the title.

Bonivital is pleased to announce that Tonya Derkson will be joining the club as Assistant Technical Director. A National B License coach and a certified LTPD Master Learning Facilitator with the Canadian Soccer Association, Tonya brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that will benefit the club's technical programming, from coach development and team training to our academies.
Tonya comes to Bonivital from the MSA, where she managed the provincial organization's technical programs. In addition to this work, Tonya has been a program consultant to the St. Charles Soccer Association. At the same time, she has been very active as a coach, working as a staff coach at the National Development Centre, as an assistant coach for the U of M Bisons women's soccer team, and as head coach for the Western Canada Summer Games team.
Tonya is no stranger to Bonivital, having worked as an Academy staff coach and as coach of a U13 Premier team in 2012 and 2013. She is excited to be returning as Assistant Technical Director. “I am looking forward to being able to work directly with players and coaches on the pitch. For me it is a privilege to work with young athletes to help them succeed in reaching their goals.“
Please extend a warm welcome to Tonya when you see her on the pitch in the coming months.
Coach Raff Cantafio and the Bonivital U18 boys team overcame the frustration of a late tying goal to win the 2014 MSA Championship in penalties. For almost all of the players on the squad this will be return engagement at Nationals, as most competed at the 2013 tournament as members of either the U16 or U18 Bonivital teams - a rare achievement.
Congratulations and best wishes to boys for continued success at Nationals.
