The Gillette Mustangs won their first playoff game of the season and in franchise history with a 40-35 win over the Southwest Kansas Storm.
The Mustangs will face a very familiar opponent in the Salina Liberty on the road next week. The two teams matched up against one another in Gillette in the final regular season game. Salina hasn't had an opponent since that game.
"It's going to be tough," Walker said. "I know coach O'Neil is going to have them ready. They're the defending champs for a reason. We can't go in and destroy ourselves. We have to go out there and basically play a flawless game."
Last time, the Liberty defeated the Mustangs in a down-to-the-wire game. Even with the loss, the Mustangs feel confident that they can come out on top. Salina is the defending champions of Champions Indoor Football and will have a loud crowd in Kansas.
