The Pfafftown Packers Jr. Midget team capped off and undefeated season to gain a Piedmont Youth Football & Cheer League (PYFCL) City Championship over the weekend.

In the much-anticipated match-up with the Tiny Indians, the Packers were able to flex their muscle and come away with the 39-14 victory.

It seems none of the teams in the PYFCL Jr. Midget Division could match the speed and strength of the Packers. Multiple times throughout the season, the Packers managed to score more than 40 points.

On some occasions, teams even failed to gain a single first down.

Coming into the match-up, many expected a much closer game, because neither team had recorded a lost.

The Packers hushed all those talks early when they jumped out to an early lead and never looked back.

A number of fans who attended the game said that although the score didn’t show it, the game was tough and hard-fought on both sides.

Leon Johnson said this was his first time seeing both teams play.

“The Packers got a monster squad, from what I saw tonight,” he said.

Key contributors for the Packers throughout the season include Rahkiem Morris, Jashauwyne Stephens, Antwan Spring Jr., Jaylon Weathers, Daniel Moyer Jr., Tazhae Woods, G’Mone Wilson and Jordan Timmons.

During a game earlier this season, Packers Head Coach Gary Warren said if his team cuts down on mental mistakes, they could go all the way.

“Mental mistakes will be the deciding factor in us being mediocre and being national champions,” he said. “We have to cut down on mental mistakes.”

Next, the Packers will face off against Mint Hill in the American Youth Football League State Championship. The winner will go on to represent North Carolina in the national tournament held in Florida.
