WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) - Zach Wamsley scored on a 1-yard run in overtime and quarterback Trenton Gibbs converted the two-point conversion run to give Wahama a 43-42 overtime win over Madonna in the Class A championship game Saturday night.
It was the highest scoring championship game in Class A history, breaking the mark of 53 points in Sistersville's 42-11 win over Fayetteville in 1984.
No. 3 seeded Wahama (14-0) earned its first state title.
The Wahama Falcons celebrate winning the West Virginia state Class A championship football game against Madonna in Wheeling Saturday. Wahama defeated Madonna, 43-42.
Ross Comis had a record six touchdowns for No. 4 Madonna (12-2), including five on the ground.
His touchdown pass tied the game with 47 seconds left in regulation and his 2-yard TD run in overtime, along with the extra-point kick, put the Blue Dons ahead 42-35.
Wahama got the ball at the 20 and needed three plays to score.
After a timeout to set up the conversion play, Gibbs ran outside left tackle into the end zone to seal the championship.
Kane Roush finished with 170 rushing yards, Wamsley had 112 and both scored three times for Wahama.
It marked the first overtime title game in any division since Morgantown beat Nitro 27-24 in Class AAA in 2005, and the first in Class A since Wheeling Central defeated Moorefield 14-7 in 2002.
