The Kings in the North

The Canadian Wildcats had another great season last year, making to the Championship game again. They lost in the title game to Newton 16-21 at Arlington's AT&T Stadium. The game was much better and much closer than a lot of people thought it might be against a very fast and talented Newton team.

This was the Wildcats' sixth State Championship game. They have a 4-2 record in the big game.
