Not a big deal, perhaps, for most teams, but most teams did not claim six straight city titles from 2004 through to 2009.
It's still early, but the Alouettes are showing signs that they are poised to make a return to glory in 2013.
Maxime Bonin scored a pair of touchdowns, with Megan Coutu and Jenelle St. Jean reaching the end zone once each in a 26-7 opening game win over the St. Benedict Bears.
Now in her fourth season with the Alouettes, Bonin noted a different sense of optimism surrounding the squad this fall.
"We came into the season more confident, even though we have a lot of new players," she said.
"Everybody is more hyped about it."
A 100m and 200m sprinter during track season, Bonin makes an easy transition to the position of running back for flag football, though she points out at least one major variance.
"The shoes make a big difference," said Bonin. "In track, we have spikes, so it really digs in."
Making the jump to Division A after winning the Division B crown last year, the Bears displayed some resiliency, understanding the adjustment at hand.
"Coming up from Division B to A is a big step for us," said quarterback Jade Tyson. "I'm extremely pleased with my team tonight. The heart that came out was great and the touchdown we got was crazy."
Limited to a long single from Tyson for much of the game, the Bears benefited from a pair of late game defensive stands, keyed in large part by the efforts of cornerback Alana Santagapita, making a pair of big stops deep in Notre-Dame territory.
Eventually, St. Benedict halfback Erin Kendall was able to punch it home from the one-yard line, giving the Bears something to build on moving forward. Making the move from fullback in 2012 and tight end in 2011, Tyson seemed fairly comfortable settling in under centre at a higher level of play.
"I've been backup for the past couple of years, so I knew most of the plays," she said.
In other action on Wednesday, the Confederation Chargers defeated the Bishop Carter Gators 24-14 in the latest instalment of the Valley rivalry.
Play resumes on Monday with a pair of games as the Lasalle Lancers play host to the Sacré-Coeur Griffons while St Benedict's travels to Walden to face the Lively Hawks.
