Blackhawks win Pop Warner Super Bowl

    The North Philly Blackhawks prevailed Saturday morning to be crowned the Division 1 Pee Wee National Champions over the Sweetwater Hawks from Florida.

    The undefeated Blackhawks won 20-16.

    Sweetwater hung in the game until the end, giving the Blackhawks a scare with a hail mary pass after the Blackhawks fumbled with just one-minute left.

    But the Blackhawks defense proved too tough for a game changing reception.

    “It got a little dicey out there, but we pulled it out,” said Blackhawks Head Coach Derrick Williams in a post game interview.  “I’m glad we will be able to bring the trophy home, not only for ourselves, but for everyone who helped us get here.”

    To watch the entire game go to ESPN 3.
