OHSAA FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS: Watterson overcomes own mistakes to win Division III championship

Doug Arnold contributed to this story

By the end of their championship game against Akron Buchtel, the Columbus Bishop Watterson football players showed the effects of a long season that started with two-a-days back in August. Matt Redfield, Hunter Maynard and T.J. Gilles were all limping around and injured.

Watterson overcame three lost fumbles and three interceptions to squeeze out a 13-12 comeback win over Akron Buchtel in the Division III championship game at Paul Brown Tiger Stadium in Massillion, Ohio before a crowd of 5,920.

The Eagles, who finished the season at 13-1, held the Griffins (11-4) twice in the final five minutes to win their first state title since 2002.

The Eagles finally mounted the game-winning drive, a nine-play, 55-yard drive that ended with a 3-yard touchdown run by Ray Cook with 10;50 left in the game. The key play was a 20-yard, fourth-down pass to receiver Erik Oman to the 3-yard line from quarterback Patrick Rhomberg.
