The George McDougall Mustangs are looking to continue writing history after snapping the Cochrane Cobras 8-year RVS (Rocky View Schools) Champions streak by beating the #1 ranked tier 2 team, the Holy Trinity Academy Knights of Okotoks.
Chris Glass, the Head Coach of the Mustangs talked about the lead-up to the big RVS Championship game.
“I knew if we played like that, against Cochrane and the way we played against Croxford, we were going to be in pretty good shape. But it was quite evident early on, that our guys came to play.”
Glass mentioned it's really great to bring that title back home to Airdrie. It's been eight years since it was here and it's, it's going to look good in their school for sure.
Glass went on to talk about their next matchup.
“They are the reigning kings of tier two football; they're ranked number one. In all football Alberta polls have been since the beginning of the year, they've been beating teams by 50 points left, right and center. They're really the big dogs so it's an exciting matchup for us.”
Glass did want to recognize two players in particular for their efforts in last week's matchup against Cochrane.
“Paul Condon against Croxford ran for 297 yards and against Cochrane ran for 140 and three touchdowns. This kid is an unreal football player and universities should be signing him immediately. And then Dawson Jensen with two interceptions in the game and has just been our moral leader on defence since he really stepped on the Mustang field. Both of them put in just a tremendous performance in the last two games, something to be seen.”
The George McDougall Mustangs can’t celebrate too long before getting back to work this week for their provincial matchup against the Holy Trinity Academy Knights of Okotoks. The game will be played in Cochrane on Friday at 4 pm at the Spray Lakes field.
In the Consolation semi-finals played this weekend, the W.H. Croxford Cavaliers stopped Springbank 42 - 3. The Cavs moved up one spot in the Tier II rankings to seventh. The Bert Church Chargers downed Chestermere in the other semi-final. The results mean the Cavaliers and Chargers will meet in the Consolation final.
