Pierre Edges Harrisburg To Win "11AA" Championship

Sioux Falls, SD

Pierre trailed for more than three quarters in Friday's "11AA" championship game, but scored the final 17 points, including ten in the fourth quarter, en route to a 24-21 win over Harrisburg.  It's the Governors' first title since 2013.

The Tigers scored the game's first 14 points, and led 21-14 at halftime.  On the heels of a scoreless third quarter, Pierre senior quarterback Peyton Zabel opened the fourth with a 24-yard TD pass to Mike Lusk.  He had two receptions for 85 yards and two touchdowns, and was named the Joe Robbie MVP.

A possession later, Pierre grabbed its first lead on a 31-yard field goal by Casey Williams.

Harrisburg put together an impressive 11-play drive, including a conversion on 4th-and-21, late in the game, but the possession ended with a fumble.

Harrisburg's Jack Anderson rushed for 82 yards and a touchdown in the loss, at the Tigers closed the year 7-5.

Pierre finished its season with a record of 9-3.
