Team Kyle Wix (5-0) defeated KFC Buckets (4-1) 42-39

KFC Buckets were missing a large piece of their offense in Jake Danneker, and they hope for a rematch in the playoffs to challenge the dynasty. Team Kyle Wix were led by seniors Adam Johnson and Drew Golde and KFC Buckets’ main contributor was Joe Chamberlain.
