Piqua just made the plays.  You've got to give them credit for what they were able to do.  I wish them luck representing the GMVC the rest of the way.

Season Capsule

It's always tough to lose a close game to a great team...to do it twice in one season, to the same team is excruciating.  Despite the sting of two close loses to GMVC nemesis Piqua, the Aviators 11-2 season was a magical one.  To date, it still goes down as one of the greatest seasons in school history as Butler won a school best 11 wins.  (A feat that they would also accomplish a year later)

The Aviators advanced to the D-II Regional Final where they lost a 17-15 heartbreaker to Piqua at Welcome Stadium.  One of the highlights of the season was an exciting comeback homecoming win against CJ.  The Aviators scored the winning touchdown with just 37 seconds remaining to edge the Eagles 38-35 in front of an overflow crowd of 5,000 plus spectators.  

Loaded in all respects, Butler had a marquee quarterback, running attack, dangerous receivers, stout defense and one of the best lines in the state.
