Scoring in the first half was Graeme Whyte of Hamilton, Ont., Kyle Freitag of Barrie, Ont., and Jamie Armstrong of Aurora, Ont. The second half saw the Gaels lose some momentum and let the Army creep back into the game. The Gaels kept it close but never relinquished the lead adding a last minute try by Nick Hall of Montreal.

Head Coach Peter Huigenbos stated that both squads will have to work on their discipline in the future to be successful

\"Both first and second teams started out amazing and stuck to the game plan which worked out for us. Moving in to the second half we lost some discipline which let our opponents back into the game.\"
