 Benedictine defeated Kettering Archbishop Alter 21-14 to win the Division IV State Championship.

This marks the seventh OHSAA state football championship for the Bengals in school history, first since 2004.

The Bengals jumped to an early 14-0 lead on a Justin Layne 49-yard interception return for a touchdown. The lead would not hold up, Archbishop Alter would score 14 unanswered points to tie the game at 14. 

Baker hit Layne for a 36-yard pass which led to a 14-yard rushing touchdown for the Bengals early on in the fourth quarter, that would be the game winning touchdown as the Knights would not be able to match that, but they would come close, the Bengals were running out the clock with 1:13 and Rash lost a fumble at Atler's 31-yard line. Bengals defensive back Warren Saba made two great plays to break up deep passes. The game would end on a Pecoraro and Baker tackle on fourth-and-2.

Bengals win 21-14.
