South Christian beat Lansing Sexton for the Division 4 football state championship at Ford Field today, 28-27.

A quick touchdown in the final seconds of the first half gave South Christian a 20-14 halftime lead, but the Sailors missed the extra point attempt.

South Christian made up for the miss with a 2-point conversion after a touchdown early in the 3rd quarter to take a 28-14 lead.

That 2-point conversion proved to be important.

Lansing Sexton scored two more touchdowns, but missed the extra point after the second touchdown with 10:43 left in the game. The miss preserved South Christian's one-point lead and ultimately was the difference.

The score remained 28-27 as Lansing Sexton took over on their own 7 yard line with 1:35 to play and one timeout left. Sexton was able to get the ball past midfield, but no further as South Christian won the game and Division 4 championship 28-27.

The win marks South Christian's second championship in the past three years.
