The Shadows ended a perfect 9-0 season with a 42-28 win over Delisle Rebels on home field.

They quickly followed this with a second touchdown to make it 14-0.
While the Shadows were slow to start, they regained their composure with quarterback Ryan Selvig running the ball in to make it 14-7 followed by Brock Larson with another touchdown to tie the game at 14. Late in the first half, Shaunavon fumbled the ball deep in their zone and Delisle pounced on it. They quickly scored a touchdown to take the lead back 21-14. 
In the dying seconds of the first half, quarterback Ryan Selvig got his second touchdown of the game to tie it at 21. The second half saw the Rebels score another touchdown to make it 28-21 Delisle, but at that point, Shaunavon took over. 
Sparked by an 85-yard run back by Jordan Voll, the Shadows pulled within one point 28-27. Voll followed this with his second touchdown and the Shadows took their first lead of the game 34-28. Voll then got his third touchdown in a row with less than four minutes left in the game. The Shadows went for the two-point conversion and completed it with a toss to Larson to go ahead 42-28. At this point, the defence took over and the Shadows held on to win the title with a 42-28 score.
