Sitch scored three rushing touchdowns, including a 28-yarder in the third quarter that put the game on ice, as the Mustangs drilled the defending champion North Winnipeg Nomads39-12 in the final of the Midget Football League of Manitoba.
“We just had a great week of practice,” said Sitch, a 5-foot-10, 210-pound power back who was named Offensive Player of the Game. “We really picked up the intensity from the start of the week until the end. We were ready to play today.”
Although there might have been some doubt about the outcome of this one early in the first quarter, the mystery didn’t last long. St. Vital built a 23-10 halftime lead and then cruised to an unbeaten 10-0 season and the MFLM crown.
Early in the third quarter, Sitch's 28-yard touchdown all but ended it. With William Evans-Murphy’s convert, the Mustangs led 30-10 and the trophy was being carried out to centre field. The two teams exchanged safeties and then the gifted Kai Madsen took a Wyryha pass 78 yards to the house and it was time for the Mustangs to celebrate.
“This is my second undefeated season,” said Sitch, a 15-year-old J.H. Bruns Collegiate student. “Next season I want to come back and do it again. There is nothing better than this.”
