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.
