The Mini Mites had strong defensive games from Joseph Carpenter, Ethan Tyree, Markail Mitchell and Kellyn Winn.
The Mini Mites' offense was kept out of the end zone despite the fact it was able to move the ball at times. Winn topped 100 yards in rushing for the game from his quarterback
position and received the Co-Most Valuable Player of the Game.
