15 November 2008  
The Badgers played their final game of the season, losing in the first round of the playoffs to Canyon Del Oro.

"If the Badgers were going to go down, they weren't going to go down without a fight," John Rust from KYCA noted, as the Badgers kicked off after the final touchdown.

With this win, the Canyon del Oro Dorados, having a season record of 9 wins and only one loss, advances to the second round in Region 4A Western Sky.

The first quarter didn't look so bad, as the two teams ended in a tie 7-7. But, the score for Canyon del Oro ratcheted up in the second quarter, and the two teams left the field at halftime with the score at 28-7. And, the second half was just more of the same.

It was commendable that the Badgers continued to show their grit and didn't ever give up, as proven by scoring their final touchdown with only 19 seconds left in the game.

The Badgers end their season with a 7-4 record, and as Region Champions for the third year in a row.
