Webster Groves Statesmen defeat Chaminade

(KMOV) -- This game was a rematch of last year's quarterfinals of the Class 5A state tournament where Webster scored on a last second 80 yard touchdown pass to win the game. 

Chaminade won to toss and deferred to the second half.  Webster took the opening kickoff and drove the ball 80 yards for a touchdown that was capped by a 52 yard run by Aaron Daniels. 

Chaminade moved the ball on their first possesion down to the 11 yard line where they missed a field goal. 

The Statesmen then put 7 more points on the board by driving the ball again for 80 yards, with a 65 yard pass completion from Quarterback Marquis Clemons to wide receiver Mike Cole, giving Webster a 14 to nothing lead at the end of the first quarter. 

It looked as though it was going to be a close game as the Red Devils drove the ball 85 yards on their next possession, highlighted by a 9 yard touchdown run from Rob Standard.  That is as close as Chaminade would get for the rest of the game, as Webster's defense was able to stop Chaminade's passing game for most of the ballgame. 

Star running back Rob Standard carried the ball 32 times for 171 yards, but it was not enough to overcome the depth and power of the Webster attack.  The final was Webster 39, Chaminade 7.
