This past Saturday (November 4), the Airdrie Storm PeeWee Football Team won the Tier One Calgary City Championship keeping their undefeated season going.
The Storm knocked off the Okotoks Eagles 62-8 in the final. They beat the Calgary Wildcats 42-0 in the semi-final and the Chestermere Chiefs 62-0 in the semifinal.
Last year, the Storm went undefeated before they lost in the semi-finals. This year, they had unfinished business.
"We had a lot of guys that returned from last year that when the season started back in June, came in and said to me, 'We're finishing what we started last year,'" stated Head Coach of the Storm, Tyrell Rohl.
So far this year, with one game to go, the Storm are 10-0, scoring 467 points while only allowing 28 points, according to Rohl.
"This is the first time in Airdrie history that any Airdrie team has ever won a division one title in the Calgary leagues including PeeWee and Bantam and spring league."
Now City Champions, the Storm will travel to Red Deer to take on Central Alberta's Divison One Champions, the Red Deer Scotia Bucks Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
"It's an opportunity to play an extra game every year. We're really excited about it."
When asked if he thinks the Storm can repeat as city champions next year, Rohl stated while he is still focused on this season, he can't wait to work with the next couple groups of 11 and 12-year-olds.
"We got a pretty good group of kids coming through the program right now at the younger levels that I'm excited to work with over the next three, four or five years."
This was also the first time in the Calgary league, that the championship match did not feature a Calgary team.
