KINGMAN - After two weeks of playoffs in the Kingman Youth Football League, the Packers and the Vikings are set to square off in the KYFL Super Bowl at 6 p.m. Saturday at Kingman High.

The Packers (6-1) advanced to the championship game with a 21-7 win over the Cowboys (3-4) last Saturday at Kingman Middle School in the semifinals.

Five minutes from the start, the Packers' Derrick Kelley ran 30 yards for a touchdown to give them an early 7-0 after the PAT was good.

In the second quarter, Kelley set up a Jay Gastineau 15-yard touchdown run with a 43-yard gain, and the Packers were up, 14-0.

The Cowboys threatened late in the first half, but the Packers' defense rose to the occasion with a goal-line stand with two minutes, 10 seconds remaining. It proved pivotal, as 90 seconds later Kelley scored his second touchdown on another 30-yard run. The Packers led 21-0 at the half.

Dominic Polley ran in two of the extra points for the Packers and had several long runs and key first downs late in the game.

The Packers' offensive line played a huge role in the game and was anchored by Kole Stutler, Sam Bravo, Tucker Humble, Seth Humphries, Jorge Baroao and Kael Juelfs.

Kelley, Juelfs, Polley, Tyler Polley and Parker Taylor led a Packers team effort on the defensive side of the ball.

Vikings 34-19

The Vikings (7-0) came out fast and furious in their win over the Chargers (2-5) in the other semifinal. Chase Williams took the opening kickoff 70 yards for a touchdown, and Jeremy Stewart added the extra point for the Vikings.

Later in the first quarter, Sean Sullivan ran it in from the Charger 13 and Stewart scored another PAT for a 14-0 Vikings lead.

Brycen Hodges kept the Vikings rolling in the second quarter with a 30-yard touchdown run with another PAT by Stewart. The Chargers got on the scoreboard when Migel Salinas escaped for a 35-yard touchdown, but the point-after failed.

The Vikings led 28-6 at the end of the third quarter after Hodges pulled in a 32-yard touchdown pass from Williams. Stewart added his fourth extra point.

The Chargers scored twice in the fourth quarter. Garwin Watson and Caleb Feil each had touchdown runs, and Feil added an extra point. The Vikings' Donavan Watson scored from three yards out for the final score.

In a consolation matchup, the Chiefs (2-5) outscored the Raiders (1-6) by a score of 25-6. Justin York gave the Chiefs a first quarter lead with a 45-yard touchdown run, but the Raiders came back with a 50-yard touchdown pass in the second.
