Kingsford’s Aidan Wienke (84) makes one of his nine receptions Friday at Flivver Field.
The two teams combined for more than 800 yards total offense as the Flivvers clinched a share of the league title.
"We wanted to have a good offensive game and I thought we did," said coach Chris Hofer, whose Flivvers built a 21-0 lead before the Braves rallied. "We just didn't make any plays (defensively) and they did. We made them early, then they spread us out a little bit."
While Kingsford recorded 501 yards in offense, Gladstone moved to a spread formation offensively and finished with 332 behind junior quarterback Sam Pouliot.
