The George McDougall Mustangs will be looking for their second straight Rocky Views Sports Association Championship on Saturday, as they take on the Cochrane Cobras in the league final.
This is the third year these two teams have faced off in the league championship. The game will take place on Saturday, October 28, at 3 p.m. at Ed Eggerer Field.
To get to the final, The Mustangs had a tough match against Springbank where at halftime the game was tied 20-20. But, the Mustangs did pull away and won the semi-final 55-20.
"Springbank really did rise to the occasion, give us a real tough game for three-quarters of it. We just powered away at the end," stated Chris Glass, Head Coach of the Mustangs.
The Cobras won their match 34-0 against W.H. Croxford in the other semi-final. Croxford and Springbank will play on Saturday, October 28, at 12 p.m. at Ed Eggerer Field for third place.
"I'm excited to be playing Cochrane again. They bring the best out of us because there's such a great level of competition. The nice thing is, it's going to be at home."
With the Mustangs being in the Tier One provincials and Cochrane being in the Tier Two provincials, they have both already qualified for provincials, but this title still means a lot.
"We want to make sure that we're using this one to not only win a championship but get on that trajectory of winning every week with every game possibly being your last."
Both the Mustangs and Cobras are on the CanadaFootballChat Top 10 small school rankings in Canada, the Mustangs sitting in sixth and the Cobras in 10th.
Airdrie's other High School team, Bert Church Chargers has one more game this year as well, they will be taking on Bow Valley tomorrow to wrap up their season.
