With a sea of purple roaring for their team the Warriors of Winner took the field at the Dakota Dome for a chance to win a championship.
Fans who have been watching all season made their fearless predictions.
“We're kind of a little team but other than that their fast and they've got some good running backs,” said one time Warrior Branden Tuttel.
With plenty of ‘W's’ on the Winner Warriors’ uniforms it might be easy to over look the single orange ‘W’ on the back of their helmets, one that means neither Winner nor Warrior.
It's for Wesson Littau, an infant from Winner who was diagnosed with a form of leukemia over a year ago.
The players of Winner like so many others in that community wanted to help.
“Our boys, they're the ones that came up with the ‘W.’ So, they are very supportive of it,” said Brooke Schroeder.
While the Warrior team fights their final battle of the year, Wesson lost his battle earlier in the football season.
And with sadden hearts, a team and a community look to continue to contribute to cancer foundations after the loss of Wesson.
“We do raise money for the cancer fund and their friends there,” said Schroeder.
While everything was on the line for Winner's football team they fight for more than just touchdowns and sacks they fight for Wesson.
