St. Xavier upset Male 31-21 to capture the Class 6A title.  St. Xavier finished the season at 14-1 while Male suffered their first loss and finished the season at 13-1.  Male led 13-7 at halftime but St. Xavier outscored the Bulldogs 24-8 in the second half.  Prayers go out to the Schutte family as Male QB Nic Schutte lost his father earlier this week and it was a very emotional week for Male preparing for the game.  St. Xavier  QB Jack Sivori was the story in this game as he launched an aerial attack (306 yards and three touchdowns) that grounded Male’s title hopes and the Tiger defense stepped up to force three turnovers tonight.  St. Xavier recorded 18 first downs and 370 yards.  The Tigers were penalized four times for 57 yards and lost a fumble.  Male recorded 19 first downs and 414 yards of total offense.  The Bulldogs were penalized five times for 29 yards, lost a fumble, and had two passes intercepted.

Campisano recorded three receptions for 29 yards.  Will Beckmann returned two kickoffs for 24 yards.  Brand. Shaffner led the defense with eight solo and one assisted tackles and recovered a fumble.  Jax. Panariello added four solo and one assisted tackles.  Tyler Boggs recorded four solo tackles and intercepted a pass. Matthew Donhoff also intercepted a pass.

Daniel Swinney led Male’s ground game with 121 yards on 24 carries.  Nic Schutte carried the ball nine times for 22 yards.  Lucas Cobler added 21 yards on two carries.  Nic Schutte completed 11 of 19 passes for 250 yards and three touchdowns with two interceptions.  D. Vrbancic caught five passes for 80 yards and a touchdown.  Vinny Anthony added two receptions for 129 yards and two touchdowns.  Max Gainey returned five kickoffs for 60 yards with a long return of 22 yards.  Vinny Anthony returned one kickoff for 25 yards.  Noah Thomas led the defense with eight solo tackles.  DeShaun Cooper added six solo tackles.  Elijah Manning recorded four solo and two assisted tackles.  Brandon Dobbs chipped in with three solo tackles with one of his tackles resulting in a 17 yard loss.  Ronald Howard recovered a fumble.
