Sunny day but a cold wind for a noon start. Game 6 for the Mustangs got off to a great start. Cameron was one of the captains and they won the toss, took the ball and drove 65 yards for the score and took a 7-0 lead. Cameron played some at QB, even was under center for one of the successful extra points, and some at free safety. The Mustangs took the 7-0 lead into the half. The continued to dominate on both sides of the ball in the second half and scored once in the 3rd quarter and once in the 4th. The Knights avoided the shutout by scoring late in the 4th quarter. Final St Matthew 20 Western Knights 7. Mustangs go to 1-5 and wrap up the season next Sunday at home against St Agatha.

Nice sunny day for the Mustangs only Saturday game of the year. The camera was forgotten at home. The Mustangs only came close to scoring once. The defense played better but they came up short 6-0. Cameron played some free safety and one play at nose guard. Next game Sunday 10/18 against the Western Knights @ Ready high school.
A very cold morning (Thanks AA commish, those Mondays and Tuesdays off during fall were worth it..NOT) for Griffin's playoff game. Not much scoring early. The storm led 3-1 going to the bottom of the third. The Rattlers scored three and took a 4-3 lead. The Storm tied it in the 4th and that is how it stayed into extra innings. The walls came down in the top of the 8th as the Storm pushed across 7 runs to win 11-4. Great season for the Timber Rattlers!

Fall playoffs continue for Griffin and the Timber Rattlers. The team had trouble getting the bats going. Evan Wolf kept them in the game by only allowing 1 run in three innings on the mound. Griffin had a huge hit, a double in the 5th inning to drive in a run. Trailing 6-3 in the bottom of the 6th, the Rattlers rallied for 4 runs and stayed alive for at least one more game on Wednesday. Nothing could spoil this night, although electronic communication tried to. So nice to leave the park where darn near everything was good for the first time in a long time. Griffin got a big hit, his team won and him and I smiled and jammed all the way home!
