The Golden Hawks claimed their second straight Yates Cup against the Western Mustangs. A strong play by the Hawks’ defence left the team with the number–one offence in Canada with only 11 points in the loss.

A crowd over 5,915 began to celebrate the 29-11 win, pouring into the drinking zone with three seconds still on the clock. The victory paved the road to the Uteck Bowl, where the Hawks were scheduled to play against the Canada East champions Acadia Axemen.
