BUT IN THE THIRD QUARTER, CHECK OUT CHARLIE SEIGER. HE’S HOME FREE. GOES 80 YARDS. AND NEW POWELL TAKES THE LEAD AND THEY HOLD ON TO IT THE REST OF THE WAY. 27-20 THE FINAL.>>I’M SO PROUD OF OUR KIDS. THEY COME OUT AND NOT ONLY GET THE JOB DONE LAST YEAR BUT THIS YEAR ONE OF THOSE IS SPECIAL, A BACK-TO-BACK LIKE THAT WITH THE AMOUNT OF KIDS THAT WE’VE GOT AND THE AMOUNT OF PLAYERS THAT WE HAVE ON THE ROSTER, IT’S UNBELIEVABLE WHAT OUR KIDS HAVE DONE THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS, AND THEY ALWAYS WORK HARD. SOME MORE THAN OTHERS, BUT IT’S A SPECIAL GROUP THAT TRY TO GET IT DONE DESPITE THE ODDS THAT ARE MAYBE GETS US.>>BEST IN CLASS, 3A, BISHOP LOOKING FOR THEIR FIRST TITLE SINCE 2000 DISPIN HAD NO TROUBLE AGAINST HERITAGE HILL. IT WAS TROJANS FROM START TO FINISH. RUNNING BACK TAYLOR DOMINATED ON THE GROUND. HE RUSHED FOR 172 YARDS. NOT ONE, NOT TWO BUT THREE TOUCHDOWNS. THAT’S A HAT TRICK FOR TAYLOR. BISHOP IS BACK ON TOP WITH A 34-3 DOMINANT WIN.>>I THINK WE ARE THE HARDEST WORKING TEAM IN THE WHOLE ENTIRE STATE. WE WORK HARD, WE GET AFTER IT. MOST OF THE TEAM OUT THERE WE’RE VERY HARD TO BEAT.>>ALL RIGHT, WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR YOU GUYS?

THIRD QUARTER, MARCUS McFADDEN CHARGES INTO THE END ZONE FOR THE TOUCHDOWN AND THAT GAVE LUTHERAN THE 28-21 LEAD. BUT WITH 10 SECONDS LEFT IN THE GAME, CENTRAL CATHOLIC FINDS PAINTER AND INSTEAD OF GOING FOR THE TIE, THEY GO FOR THE WIN WITH A 2 POINT CONVERSION, AND IT’S GOOD. THEY EDGE LUTHERAN IN A CLOSE ONE, 29-28. A DISAPPOINTED FINISH FOR LUTHERAN BUT STILL A LOT FOR THE SAINTS TO BE PROUD OF MAKING THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP FOR THE FIRST TIME IN PROGRAM HISTORY. WE’RE GONNA DO IT ALL AGAIN TOMORROW. CLASS 2A, 4A, AND 6A ARE ON TOP.
