Division I: Cincinnati Moeller 20, Toledo Whitmer 12
Spencer Iacavone’s efficient passing and a stout defense helped Cincinnati Moeller defeat Toledo Whitmer for the Division I championship 20-13 Saturday night at Fawcett Stadium.
Iacovone went 15-of-19 for 161 yards and a 7-yard touchdown to Keith Watkins for Moeller, which used a high-powered offense to get to its 12th title game overall — then won with defense including two key turnovers.
Moeller opponents averaged 25.3 points in 14 games. Whitmer’s total was the lowest against the Crusaders this year.
The Crusaders (12-3) won their seventh title — first since 1985. They lost title games in 1989, 1991 and 1997.
The Panthers (14-1), in their first title game, got 288 total yards from quarterback Nick Holley, who passed for 196 and two TDs.
Division V: Coldwater 10, Kirtland 9
Austin Bruns and 22 other Coldwater High School seniors saved the best for last.
Bruns passed for 233 yards and one touchdown as the Cavaliers took the Division V championship away from Kirtland in a rematch of the 2011 title game on the same field at Paul Brown Tiger Stadium.
The Cavaliers (15-0), ranked No. 1 in the final Associated Press poll, earned their third title, and first since 2007.
The Cavaliers lost in the title game each of the three previous years and the Coldwater graduating class became the first in Ohio to play 60 games. They finally won it all in No. 60.
Coldwater did it with defense, holding Damon Washington, the AP’s co-offensive player of the year in the division, to 39 yards on 11 carries. Adam Hess ran for 86 yards for Kirtland (14-1), but the Hornets managed to get only 25 yards passing.
