The Stallions and Eagles played to a 8-8 tie in front of a capacity crowd at Brookhaven High School and shared the 1964 CCL championship.  DeSales (7-0-1) linebacker Dick Penrod intercepted a Watterson pass on the Stallion 4 yard line with under 20 seconds remaining to preserve the tie and give the Purple and White their first-ever CCL championship in school history.  The Stallions took a 6-0 lead in the 2nd quarter when Kenny Evans ran for a 4-yard touchdown.  DeSales successfully converted the two-point conversion as quarterback Ken Schneider found Butch Lewis in the end zone to make it 8-0.  The touchdown was set-up by Mike DeAscentis, who recovered an Eagle fumble on the Watterson 4 yard line.  With 2:18 remaining in the 3rd quarter, the Stallions allowed just their 8th touchdown (in 8 games) of the season and the Eagles converted their two-point conversion to tie the game at 8.  The Stallions held Watterson to a season-low 8 points.  The Eagles came into the game averaging over 40 points per game.
