HistoryEdit

The Rifles joined the Regina Riot as the second Junior B team from Regina. The Rifles are operated and managed by the Queen City Minor Box Lacrosse Association in Regina. Their home arena is the Co-Operators Centre.

The Rifles won their first-ever game in the Prairie Gold Lacrosse League, 11-5 over the Assiniboia Attack. The first goal scored by a Rifles player was in exhibition play by Brett Kealey. The first hat trick by a Rifle player was scored by Taylor Frei, who went on to win the team goal-scoring title and the PGLL league goal scoring title during the Rifles inaugural season. The Rifles surprised the league by finishing with a .500 season and tied for fifth overall in the standings.
