The Tigers responded with two big first downs at mid-field with 2:14 left to play. During the 3rd and 4, the Tigers go to the air and it pays off in a big way. Jack Sivori connects with Smith for a St. X touchdown. They led 31-21 and never looked back.

St. X won their first state title since 2009.
