Holy Trinity, the number one seed, defeated Marvin Ridge, 30-20, to win the 7th-grade championship.
The 6-seed Mavs upset #3 Weddington and #2 Porter Ridge on their road to the championship game but could not pull off one more weekend shocker.
The Bulldogs' defense was the best in seventh-grade, yielding only 2.8 points per game during the regular season. On Saturday, Marvin Ridge found some holes in the defense that led to the end zone more times than most teams did before the playoffs.
Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to overcome an impressive offensive display by the Bulldogs as Holy Trinity claimed the 7th-grade middle school championship.
