MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Jacob Neis ran for 105 yards and a score as Chatfield beat Minneota/Lincoln HI 17-7 in the Class 2A Championship game.
Alex Bradt added 69 yards rushing for the Gophers (13-1).
Austin Buysse threw for 204 yards and a last-minute touchdown for Minneota/Lincoln HI (13-1).
Neis broke a scoreless tie with 50 seconds left in the first half, plunging in from the 1. That completed a 64-yard drive that was highlighted by a 26-yard run by Neis.
Chatfield's defense stuffed Buysse on fourth down at the 1 on the first play of the fourth quarter to preserve the lead.
Chatfield had a 17-0 lead late in the game, but Buysse and Jeff Gladis hooked up for a 16-yard score with 6 seconds left to avoid the shutout.
