Team Falls in an Epic Game 26-24

GYFC's 5th Grade team advances to the SYFC Championship game for the second consecutive season!

The team capped off an undefeated regular season with a record of 8-0. In the first-round of the playoffs, they hosted #8 Shelton and came away victorious with a 28-0 victory. The team then hosted a talented and #4 ranked Southington team in the semifinals and turned in a dominating performance by claiming a 40-6 victory.

With the win over Southington the team headed back to the SYFC championship game looking to win back-to-back titles. They faced off against a tough Cheshire team that came into the game ranked #2 with a record of 9-1 (their only loss was to Guilford during the regular season). In a game for the ages, it came down to the final play, but the Grizzlies fell just short by a score of 26-24. The team appreciated the strong showing of support from their Guilford fans before, during and after the game. It was a great game and both teams battled until the end. 

The 5th grade team finished the season as runner's up ending their first two seasons of tackle football with an impressive record of 21-1. The team is motivated to get back to their winning ways in the 2024 season.
