They had a huge crowd down…

In a very close and entertaining game the elders finished on top, defeating the players who had entered the league since 2009 by a score of 18-17. Many expected the game to be high scoring, at is was. The scoring started early and never really stopped as the game went along. You’d step away for two seconds, and two goals had been scored.
