The George McDougall Mustangs lived up to their reputation by defeating the Cochrane Cobras in a Rocky View Sports Association (RVSA) powerhouse brawl 24-15 last Friday (October 6).
The Mustangs remain unbeaten on the season, sitting at 5-0.
With the win, the Mustangs move up in the Tier One Alberta football ranking to seventh, making them the highest team not included in the Brian Fryer League (The league usually contains the top football teams in the province).
Chris Glass, Head Coach of the Mustangs, is proud of how his team performed.
"We were pretty confident in our game plan going in. We were able to do what we wanted to do early, and then the defense took over and locked the game down."
With this win, the Mustangs have now beaten the number one and two-ranked teams in Tier Three football, the Holy Rosary Raiders (ranked first) and Cochrane Cobras (ranked second).
Last Thursday (October 5) the other two Airdrie teams, W.H. Croxford and Bert Church played each other. Croxford came out on top, 33-10. Croxford's record now moves to 2-3 while Bert Church drops to 1-4 on the season.
