#2 Hazard defeats Mayfield 24-6, wins first ever state title

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Hazard compiled just 237 yards
offensively but forced five Mayfield turnovers and beat the
Cardinals 24-6 for the school's first state championship in
Friday's Class 1A game.

Running back Zack Blanton, who had two pass attempts all season,
took the majority of snaps at quarterback for the Bulldogs (12-2).
A 28-yard touchdown pass to Austin Johnson gave Hazard the lead for
good in the second quarter.

Mayfield (14-1) fell short of a repeat state title, as quarterback Jake Guhy went 15-of-35 for 191 yards and was intercepted five times.

Hazard took a 10-6 halftime lead on a field goal as time
expired, extended that on a 4-yard Evan Whitaker run in the third
quarter and sealed the win on B.J. Combs' interception returned for
a touchdown with 2:57 left.
