Berkeley Wins Region Title (WCIV)

Tre Morrison blocked two kicks and recovered a fumble, and Eric Tuttle connected with Trae Chisolm for three touchdown passes to lead Berkeley in a 30-27 overtime win over Cane Bay Friday, clinching the Region 8-AAAA championship in the process.

Both the Stags and Cobras entered the game undefeated in region play and sporting identical 8-1 records. The evenly matched squads battled back and forth until Morrison's game-winning field goal block in overtime to seal the win for the stags (9-1).


Tate McMurrary aced a 28-yard field goal in Berkeley's first possession of overtime to give his team the lead it would hang onto for the win.

The Stags (8-2) forced overtime when Tuttle found Chisolm streaking open along the short side hash on a deep post for an 80-yard TD run.


Cane Bay had pulled ahead 27-20 after Kris Copeland and RJ Roderick each scored on 2-yard TD runs in the third quarter.

Berkeley took a 20-13 lead into halftime after Mohammed Waheed recovered a Copeland fumble with 17 seconds to go in the second quarter. Tuttle connected with Chisolm along the sideline on the very next play for a 41-yard TD pass.

Cane Bay had tied the game at 13-all at the 6:48 mark in the second on a 70-yard TD pass from Copeland to TJ Johnson.

Tuttle capped an 80-yard, 20-play drive for the Stags to put them ahead 13-7 at the end of the first quarter.

Copeland gave the Cobras a brief 7-6 lead on a 62-yard TD run with 9:16 to play in the first.

Tuttle had a 30-yard TD pass to Chisolm to open the scoring in the first quarter after Xavier Watson stripped Copeland and Morrison snagged the loose ball mid-air for a turnover.
