The Lightning Football 8th Graders finished their season on Saturday night in the SSYFL Championship Game against Bloomington Purple. This marked the 2nd consecutive year that these teams have met in the championship (competing last year in the 7th grade title game). The cold, windy, and snowy weather did not diminish the effort of the players and coaches. Unfortunately the Lightning came out on the short end of the 14 - 0 decision. The loss was the first of the season for the Lightning. Congratulations to all the players, coaches, and fans on an outstanding season. The future of Lightning football looks bright.
