Summary by Bob Ashby:
The Firebirds got off to a bad start and found themselves in a 14 point hole less than 8 minutes into the game.  Josh Laine booted a 33-yard field goal to get West on the scoreboard with only 40 seconds remaining in the first quarter.  Both teams combined threw punches and counter punches to produce 9 more scores as the evening progressed but West could never get closer than the final score when Kurt Riesenberg caught a 20-yard pass from Mitch Bolden to set the final score at 35-41 with just 22 seconds remaining in the contest.  Bolden was credited with 142 yards passing and Riesenberg hauled in 9 passes for 109 yards to top the century mark. Other noteworthy plays were a pass interception by David Jones who returned the ball 50 yards to score in the second quarter.  David Afari tallied 3 TD’s;  a 20-yard pass from Bolden, a 42-yard run, and a 13-yard run. Linebacker Issac Kolosik was the Firebirds leading tackler with 8.
