4th Quarter Surge Dooms Ovid-Elsie

By  | 

DETROIT (AP) -- Matt Eacker ran for two touchdowns, including a go-ahead score with 11:08 to play, as Muskegon Oakridge beat Ovid-Else 26-14 for the Division 5 state title Saturday at Ford Field.
The title was the fourth of the weekend for a Muskegon County school and the seventh straight for the west side of the state.
The Eagles led 13-7 until Ovid-Elsie's spectacular finish to the first half. Cameron Hurst intercepted a Potts pass and returned it to the Oakridge 33, where he was tackled with one second to play.
Jason Goosen then threw a pass into a swarm of players that was tipped before David Russek caught it at the 4 and broke into the end zone. Hurst's extra point put the Marauders up 14-13.
The second half was a defensive struggle until Eacker broke up the middle for his 16-yard game-winner. Michael Shoop clinched the game with an 11-yard touchdown run.
