jumping out to a 21-7 lead, the Cheetahs held off a 4th quarter
rally by the Vieux-Montréal Spartiates to hold on for the
21-14 victory. The win provided the perfect ending to a perfect
year. The team went 8-0 during the regular season and were 2-0
in the playoffs.

for two TD passes.
earned him offensive player-of-the-game honours, but in
a post-game interview Myles made it plain that this was
a team effort all the way.
