For the first time in school history, the West Seneca West football team can call themselves State Champions.

The Indians beat Yorktown 14-6 on Friday afternoon in the Class A State Championship game for the program's first ever state title and first ever perfect season with a 13-0 record.

Quarterback Matt Myers was named the game's Most Valuable Player. He scored the Indians' second touchdown of the game and finished with nearly 290 all-purpose yards in the win.

On defense, Liam Scheuer put his name in the school record books after recording his 12th sack of the season, breaking a record held by Nick Carrow since 2001.

Meanwhile, Maple Grove fell to Cambridge for the 2nd year in a row in the Class D title game.

The Red Dragons had a hard time stopping the Cambridge run game in the red zone in the 26-14 loss.

They say third time's the charm but right now Maple Grove head coach Curt Fischer is worried about numbers for 2018. He told 7ABC after the game that numbers are "scarce" and they'll have to wait to see if there will or won't be football as the season approaches.
