Vikings have strong first season

The Charlottetown Privateers won the provincial bantam football championship Saturday with a strong second half.

The Privateers defeated the first-year Montague Vikings 46-30 in Charlottetown to complete an undefeated season. The game was tied 16-16 at the half.

The Privateers lost in last year's championship game.

“We know exactly how Montague feels. It’s heartbreaking to lose that game after a whole season,” said Charlottetown quarterback Colin Trewin, who was named the offensive player of the game. “They did a great job and played a great game and congratulations to them.”

Montague linebacker John Ross Young was defensive player of the game.

    What an exciting game. Montague proved a worthy opponnent who fought to a tie at the half. A remarkable achievement for a team completing its first year playing tackle football. In the end experience was the difference. Both teams should be very proud of their play today. GREAT TO HAVE FOOTBALL BACK ON PEI
