COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Lamar used a powerful running attack and stingy defense to win its first state championship in more than a decade.

The Silver Foxes rushed for 287 yards and held C.E. Murray to 98 total yards in the 28-0 victory over the War Eagles in the Class A Division II championship game Saturday.

It was Lamar’s fourth title in school history and first since 2004. The Silver Foxes (11-3) won three straight championships from 2002-04.

Lamar’s Tre’ Ceasar rushed for 142 yards and a touchdown, and quarterback Decobie Durant threw for a touchdown and ran for one. Durant was 10-of-14 through the air for 104 yards.

Dashon Barr rushed added 104 yards on the ground and a touchdown for the Silver Foxes.

Lamar held C.E. Murray without a first down in the first half. The team allowed 14 points or less over its final eight games.

Latrell Johnson led C.E. Murray with 12 tackles. The War Eagles (12-2) were making their first state championship appearance.
