LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Frederick Douglass, making its third appearance in the state championship game on Saturday, won the school’s first title, knocking off Bowling Green, 28-7.

Douglass (15-0) got on the scoreboard first, when Cole Carpenter connected with Tylon Webb in the second quarter, to make it 7-0. The game was tied 7-7 at the half.
UK commit Ty Bryant carried for a one-yard touchdown in the third to put the Broncos ahead for good, 14-7. Bryant earned Most Valuable Player honors for the game.
