For the first time, the Moosomin Generals are champions of the Rural Manitoba 9- a side Football League.
"It's been a long time coming, we've been in the league for about 10 years now, and been close a few times but just this year was different, we had a pretty special group with a lot of players buying in and we were glad to get it done," said Generals Coach Dextor Mondor
The Generals beat the visiting Interlake Thunder 16-12 on Saturday afternoon at home to capture the Doug Steeves Trophy.
"We were able to execute a couple big plays offensively, and then our D stood tall and they say that defence wins championships and that's what it did for us on Saturday", Mondor added.
Moosomin advanced to the championship after a tight Semi-Final win over the Swan Valley Tigers the previous week.
