Longhorns lose to the Outlaws 16-34
It was a great game to be part of this 2011 Championship. The Longhorns were unable to pull out another Championship. The Outlaws did a great Job in beating the Longhorns with WR #7 scoring two great TD's catches. The Outlaws kept the game out of reach of the Longhorns for 3 Qrts. The 4th quarter the Longhorns moved to within striking distance, but the Outlaw Defense did their job to shut it down.
It was a great game. The Longhorns made several mistakes which the Outlaws took advantage. Penalties and miscued plays were the main problems for the Longhorns. The Outlaws had few mistakes for the Longhorns to take advantage. In Championship games making and taking advantage of the mistakes can win or lose games. The Outlaws were the Best Team that night for sure.
The game is over and the Longhorns were happy to be apart of another TUFL Championship game. It was the third Championship game for the Longhorns to play in 4 years.
It wont be the last!
