GALVESTON–The Kaufman County Crunch defeated Galveston, 52-50, Saturday at the Island Convention Center in Galveston. The victory gave the Crunch the inaugural Independent Indoor Football Alliance title.
The Crunch, based in Terrell, turned three Galveston turnovers into 16 points in the fourth quarter to come from behind and win the championship.
Galveston started out hot, jumping out to a 36-22 halftime lead. That wasn’t new – in a week one matchup, Galveston had the Crunch down 24-14 at half.

On the ensuing kickoff Vernon “V-Ray” Ray took the kick back 51 yards for The Crunch’s first score.

The Crunch took the second-half kickoff on a lengthy march downfield. Dickerson capped the drive with a one-yard run to make the score 36-30.
