The Norsk Cowboys win the 88th Sugar River Euchre League's Championship title! After winning eight out of eight matches in the first half of the season, the Cowboys were assured a spot in the championship match played on March 28, 2019. Their opponent, the Harley Blue Express, earned their passage to the championship match by beating the Norsk Pranksters in a second half tie-breaker match held on March 21st. Both of these teams ended the second half with six wins and two losses.

The Express entered this year's championship match with a chip on their shoulders after falling in the championship match last year to the 5th Quarter Shufflers. Unfortunately for the Express, the Cowboys had ideas of their own as to how this season would end. Circling their wagons early, the Cowboys never allowed the Express to build enough steam to pull out of the station. The Cowboys took a three point lead after the first frame and never looked back, ending the match with a fifty-three point advantage.

Dave Willborn and Roger Olstad (Cowboys) ended with high score, 106 points. John Scheidegger and Dave Steinhauer (Express) ended just one point back. The low score was a 72 recorded by Opie Taylor and Steve Thoni (Express). Congratulations Cowboys on your fourteen and three season!
