The Bears battled to a 22-14 win over the host Meadow Ridge Knights on Saturday.
From the starting kick off it was obvious both teams showed up to win as the play was filled with hard hits and strong drives.
Mathieu Gale led the way right out of the gate, with a strong drive down the left side of the field that put the Bears in a great position.
Within a few downs, Gale put the Bears on the scoreboard, giving them the lead and ensuring the Knights would have to respond. Despite the Knights’ determination and multiple advances for the next two quarters, the Bears consistently stopped them in their tracks with some key tackles.
This tight game became incredibly intense as the Meadow Ridge boys saw their first touchdown instantly neutralized by a Bears’ touchdown.
As the clock ticked down to the final three minutes of the fourth quarter, the Bears managed to grind out one last touchdown, snapping a 14-14 tie and giving them the lead for good as the game drew to a close.
