In Class 5A, Bishop Carroll had to play a perfect game to beat Hutch, they didn't. Turnovers and Josh Smith who ran for 305 yards for the night were the final story as the Carroll defense was unable to stop Smith, or Devion Dinwiddie who ran for over 100 yards himself.
Hutch will take on Gardner Edgerton as was expected as they defeated St. Thomas Aquinas 49-7 and make their first championship appearance.
