Summary:
         The Trinity Wildcats brought home a state championship in their first ever appearance in the Super Six. The Wildcats broke open a close game by scoring three touchdowns in the last minute of the first half.
         Trinity took a 3-0 first quarter lead before falling behind in the second quarter 7-3. That is when the fireworks began. Tommy Trott caught a 26-yard pass from Rory McKean with 1:05 remaining in the half to take a 10-7 lead.
         Brioni Rutland returned the ensuing kickoff 88 yards to give the Tigers a short lived 14-10 lead with 45 seconds left in the half. Following a sky kick by Deshler, the Wildcats answered on the first play from scrimmage when Rory McKean found Jack Bartlett down the left sideline. Bartlett broke into the clear, but fumbled the ball while attempting to switch it into his other hand. Austin Hoyt recovered the ball in the end zone it to complete the 64-yard scoring play with 29 seconds left in the half.
          The Wildcats weren't done. They recovered an onside kick at the Deshler 38 and McKean found Tommy Trott on a 38-yard scoring pass with 16 seconds left in the half. Trinity led 24-14 after both teams scored four touchdowns in 49 seconds. Neither team scored in the second half and Trinity won their first state championship.
