Madonna Survives in 2OT, Advances to State Final

Posted: Updated:

The No.4 Madonna Blue Dons have advanced to the Class A State Championship Game with a thrilling 20-14, double-overtime win on a cold, snowy afternoon at No.1 Tucker County.

Madonna junior quarterback Ross Comis scored the game-winning touchdown, his second rushing touchdown of the game, in the second overtime to secure the victory. He finished the game with 33 carries for 116 yards, and added 141 yards through the air. On defense he had six tackles, and an interception from his safety spot.

Madonna junior running back Elliott Nero scored the Dons first touchdown of the game on a two-yard run in the first quarter.

The Blue Dons, now 12-1 on the season, will take on No.3 Wahama (13-0) in next Saturday's Class A title game at 7 p.m.

The Blue Dons won the 2009 Class A state championship, while Wahama was beaten in the 2010 title game by Wheeling Central.
