Instant Classic: Zachary's late touchdown lifts Broncos past West Monroe 27-24
NEW ORLEANS- After putting up 67 points in their semifinal shootout with Destrehan, Zachary knew they had quite the test against a West Monroe team that entered Saturday's final without giving up a single point in the postseason.
Zachary broke the streak early on a touchdown throw from Keilon Brown to Chandler Whitfield to go up 6-0 early in the first quarter.
Both teams would trade blows until the 4th quarter when West Monroe erased a 10 point deficit to take a 24-20 lead with 9:26 to play in the game.
The West Monroe defense that had been so special this postseason also came up with a potential game saving 4th and goal stop with 4:30 left to play.
Zachary would get one more chance with 2:38 in the game and would take advantage.
Brown threw a screen to Chris Hilton who would take it 80 yards for the game winning touchdown.
Zachary wins their 2nd straight title and third in the last four years.
