MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Totino-Grace scored 21 fourth-quarter points to complete its perfect season and defeat Eden Prairie 28-20 to win the Class AAAAAA State Championship at U.S. Bank Stadium on Friday night.

Trailing 14-7, Totino-Grace (13-0) tied the game on the opening play of the final quarter on a fourth-down touchdown pass from Kyle Halverson to Rocky Kreuser.
