Sunday, November 5th
Investors Group Field
Mustangs 32 Falcons 16
This year's game featured a re-match of last year's Championship game between the Mustangs and Falcons. In the 2017 edition, the teams faced cold conditions (-4 C at kickoff) and a field showing signs of being freshly plowed from an over-night snow fall.
The Falcons jumped out to an early 9-0 lead before the Mustangs answered with a field goal in the 2nd quarter making the score 9-3. The Falcons wasted no time in answering with a long catch and run for a touchdown to increase their lead to 16-3. The Mustangs offense quickly answered with a long catch and run of their own and capped off the drive with a 6 yard touchdown run to cut the Falcon lead to 16-10. Late in 2nd quarter, the Mustangs drove deep inside Falcon territory and capped off the drive with a short touchdown run and 2-point convert to take a 18-16 lead into half-time.
The Mustangs added two more touchdowns in the 2nd half enroute to a 32-16 victory.
Congratulations to both teams on a hard-fought Championship final.
