Broncos and Patriots Win CYTF Championships!

By CYTF Staff:

Mother Nature blessed us with sunny skies and NO RAIN on Sunday as the Broncos captured the Junior League Championship and the Patriots captured the Senior League Championship.

Coach Jamie Moore's Broncos team came back from down by over 20 points in the second half to capture his second straight championship by defeating the Cowboys 28-26 at Houck Stadium. Offensively, Kinyon Hodges ran for some late scores for the Broncos and defensively, Dustin Majka and Trey Dover combined to stuff the Cowboy's star back Caleb Oswald late in the game to preserve the victory. Moore's teams are now a combined 10-2 in the last two CYTF Junior Seasons.

Not to be outdone, Coach Francis McClard was victorious in his first championship game as the Patriots defeated the Buccaneers for the second time during the year 20-6 in the late game last evening. Key offensive performances by running backs Trevon McClard and Adriano Grim along with key defensive plays swayed the game to the Patriots. The Buccaneer's Cyrus Woolard had an outstanding game running the ball, but in the end it was the Patriots defense that won out. The patriots end up 5-1 on the season while the Bucs finish 4-2.

In the consolation games, the 49ers took advantage of some key injuries and some outstanding line play from Zach Nunn to defeat the Jets 12-0 and capture their first win of the season. Brody Forrester played a key role for the 49ers offense and scored both TD's for the 49ers on long runs. The jets, missing star running back Tyrus Reddin in the game due to injury, were led by Mason Dunn on both offense and defense throughout the game. The 49ers finish 1-5 while and Jets finish 2-4 on the season.

In the Senior League consolation game, the Bears defeated the Bengals for the third time this season as TJ Pullen scored three times lifting them to a 20-6 victory in the day's second game. Led by Pullen, the quick back scored three touchdowns on long runs from scrimmage. The Bengals were led by running back Tyler Bening and some key plays from flanker Ethan Arnn. The Bears finish the season at .500 at 3-3 while the Bengals finish 0-6.
