Somerset defeated Mayfield 34-31 to claim the championship in a wild finish.  Somerset led 28-17 early in the final quarter but Mayfield rallied to take a 31-28 lead with 6:56 left on the clock.  Mayfield failed on a fourth and six play and Somerset got the ball on their own 14 with 28 seconds remaining in the game.  Somerset drive appeared to end with a failed pass in the end zone in what appeared to be the last play of the game.  However pass interference was called and Somerset got an untimed play from the 20 yard line.  Kaiya Sheron then hit Tate Madden with a 20 yard touchdown strike to complete the improbable comeback.  Somerset finished the season at 14-1 despite losing their leading rusher Alex Miller midway through the season.  Somerset recorded 18 first downs and 312 yards of total offense.  The Briar Jumpers were penalized three times for 10 yards and lost two fumbles.  Mayfield recorded 20 first downs and 406 yards of total offense.  The Cardinals were penalized 10 times for 83 yards and lost a fumble.

Jase Bruner led Somerset’s ground game with 55 yards and a touchdown on six carries.  Kaiya Sheron carried the ball 11 times for 36 yards.  Mikey Garland recorded 22 yards and three touchdowns on nine carries.  Kaiya Sheron was named MVP and completed 10 of 15 passes for 175 yards and a touchdown.  Kade Grundy caught three passes for 52 yards.  Jayden Gilmore added three receptions for 24 yards.  Tate Madden caught two passes for 58 yards and a touchdown.  Kade Grundy punted twice for a 41.0 average and returned three kickoffs for 65 yards with a long return of 34 yards.  Chaz Gilmore led the defense with five solo and five assisted tackles.  Dylan Keith added three solo and five assisted tackles with one of his tackles resulting in a five yard loss.  Cale Todd recorded three solo and four assisted tackles. 

Kylan Galbreath led Mayfield’s ground attack with 159 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries.  Jayden Stinson completed 15 of 17 passes for 241 yards and two touchdowns.  Tate Puckett caught six passes for 95 yards and a touchdown.  Diaz Perry added five receptions for 121 yards and a touchdown.  Micah Haley punted once for 56 yards.  Ben Gloyd led the defense with six solo and two assisted tackles.  Derek Stewart recorded four solo and five assisted tackles.  Markeacio Jackson recorded five solo tackles with two of his tackles resulting in losses totaling 13 yards.  Alonzo Daniel and Gabe Spalding each recovered a fumble.
