Cavs Lose Heartbreaker on a 92 Yard Final Drive
(12-3-16) - Canton Central Catholic finally beat Coldwater to win the D V State Title with a 16-13 win. It looked bleak for the Crusaders with just under 3 minutes to go they started on their own 8 yard line trailing 13-9 after a Dylan Thobe 44-yard punt. QB Jack Murphy would hit Tee Rupp with a 55-yard TD pass down the sideline to put the Crusaders up 16-13 with just 58 seconds remaining.
The Cavs made one last drive, but the game ended with Coldwater passing from the Crusaders 39 yard line, Dylan Thobe, with just 6 seconds left would br intercepted by Brady Thompson as time ran out.
Canton Central Catholic took a 9-0 lead early in the third quarter, before Coldwater would score the next 13 points and only needed one final defensive stop.
CCC's Dan Mills 48 yard field goal set a new Div. V state record (Bluffton's Chad Koontz, 42, set in the 1991) for the longest made FG in a championship game to put the Crusaders up 3-0 as the half ended. The FG ended up being the three points needed for the win.
The loss ended Coldwater's playoff winning streak at 24 wins in a row and their attempt to win five consecutive state titles.
