NEW ORLEANS - A year after falling one win shy of a state championship, the Livonia Wildcats returned to the scene of the crime and won the Class 3A state title, defeating Amite 43-14 Saturday afternoon.

The Wildcats (14-0) took a 7-0 lead on a 1-yard touchdown run by quarterback Cee Jay Powell, but a 53-yard touchdown run by Kenner Harrell brought Amite (12-3) ahead 8-7.

Powell connected with Kendrick Paul for a touchdown pass from nine yards and on Livonia's next possession hit Stephen Guidry for a 4-yard touchdown pass and 21-8 halftime score.

Their first second-half possession extended the lead with a Powell's 4-yard pass to Paul.

It was Livonia's first 11-man football state championship. The school had to forfeit last year's runner-up trophy because of an ineligible player.
