OUTLAWS UPSET MUSTANGS IN GAME OF THE YEAR. EDGE CLOSER TO HOME PLAYOFF GAME.
The Billings Outlaws indoor football team shut down a Hail Mary as time expired to take down the Gillette (Wyoming) Mustangs by a 41-38 margin in Champions Indoor Football play Saturday at First Interstate Arena at MetraPark.
Billings (5-4 overall) got back to over .500 with the victory and got redemption following Gillette's (7-2) 73-28 blowout win in their first meeting of the season April 1.
"This was a huge win for us because we hadn’t beaten a team with a winning record yet this year and this right here was huge for us to go and prove we can play with the big boys and compete," said Billings coach Shon King.
King said the Outlaws took the lead late before their defense held firm on Gillette's final drive.
"It was a good win," he said. "We came down and scored with about 40 seconds left in the game and we drove down and scored on a tight end quick pass, a quick out."
