The The Malta Mustangs Football team is looking to pose a challenge to teams in the Northern B, after retaining plenty of talent in 2021.
"The Northern B looks to be a very competitive division again this year," Malta Head Coach Nick Oxarart said. "Fairfield is still the team to beat. Cut Bank, Glasgow, and Conrad will all be tough to beat as well."
The Mustangs ended their 2020 campaign in a playoff loss to the Manhattan Tigers, who eventually won the Class B Title. Malta went 6-2 last season, with their only other loss being to Fairfield who was the runner-up in the State Championship.
