It wasn't the result they were looking for; however, there was plenty of bright spots as the Dauphin Clippers opened their season in the Rural Manitoba Football League.

On the road to play the Winnipeg Falcons, Dauphin fell short in a 35 to 13 defeat. Dauphin struggled out of the gate as the Falcons came out hard on Dauphin to take a commanding lead into halftime. Dauphin stuck right with the Falcons in the second half as both teams scored seven points.

Cody Zurba started at quarterback and he went 7-for-15 with 118 yards passing, 95 of which went to Alexander Tomkins. Will Miner had a monster game on the ground with 172 yards rushing across 17 carries. Sully Fox had a two touchdown performance in the defeat. Dauphin's international kicker Jakob Pferrer went 1-for-2 on conversions. He punted for 105 yards on three punts.

On the defensive side of the ball, Riley Lobert led the way with four tackles, one interception, and one knockdown.
