SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- West Seneca West has won the NYSPHSAA Class A state football championship.
The Indians held off Yorktown 14-6 on Friday at the Carrier Dome. It's the first state championship in program history.
Indians quarterback Matt Myers ran for 75 yards and a late touchdown, and also completed 18 of 33 passes for 174 yards.
Yorktown mounted a drive to midfield in the game's final minute, but couldn't finish the drive for a possible tying score, turning the ball over on downs with 37 seconds left.
Yorktown scored first, but West Seneca West answered with a Bryan Ball TD plunge with a little more than 10 minutes to go in the first half. That gave the Indians a 7-6 that they never relinquished in a game that saw more defense than offense. West Seneca West held Yorktown to just 186 total yards.
