Game 1 on the other hand, became a real nailbiter! Two hopefuls, the Gnarwhals and Hell-on-Wheel battled it out to aid their losing records of 1-4. The Gnarhwals led the way until Hell-on-Wheel made a comeback streak and took the lead with 24 seconds remaining. The Gnarwhals kept the attack on high and returned a run for a touchdown with just enough time for Hell-on-Wheel to attempt a kick return and one last play. A long toss to the end-zone was unsuccessful and the Gnarhwals held on to the victory.
