The 2015 season for Rocky View Sports Football has come to a close.

With the Cochrane Cobras winning the division title against George Mac on October 31st, a wild 2015 campaign came to an end, but not without some great highlights.

The season began with the RVS Jamboree on September 4th.

Airdrie's schools, Bert Church and George McDougall started the year with impressive wins including The Mustangs back to back victories against Chestermere and Bow Valley.

Despite an opening game loss to Cochrane, the Chargers were able to roar back with dominating wins over the Cowboys, the Phoenix and the Bobcats.

The pinnacle of the 2015 season came on October 16th at Ed Eggerer Athletic Park, the site of this year's Airdrie Bowl.

George McDougall was looking to make history and win their fifth consecutive title.

The Chargers, led by star Quarterback Mike Lees had other plans and hoped to take the Airdrie Bowl back to Bert Church, in front of their home crowd.

Despite valiant efforts from both squads, the Mustangs proved to be the stronger team as they indeed won their fifth straight Airdrie Bowl 26-7.

The two teams would meet the following week in the RVS semi-final where the Mustangs would make it a double, winning 38-14.

Although the Mustangs eventually lost to the Cobras 67-28 in the Gold Medal match, there's no denying the incredible season that they and countless young men in Rocky View experienced.
