PLYMOUTH — Quarterback Collin Sullivan hit a wide-open Ryan Farina for a 27-yard touchdown pass with less than a minute to go in the Division IV championship game at Zoulias Field on Saturday, Nov. 10, propelling Plymouth to the Division IV championship with a 7-0 win over the defending champion Trinity Pioneers.

In a game that saw big momentum swings and huge defensive stops on both sides of the ball, the Bobcats waited until the final few minutes to mount their best attack and got into the end zone to take the 6-0 lead in the final minute. Silas Murray booted the extra point for the 7-0 lead, but Trinity still had 45 seconds in which to mount a counterattack.

However, Plymouth's Justin Robinson pounced on the ensuing kickoff when Trinity couldn't handle it, giving the Bobcats the ball back and sealing the win.

The game was the final Division IV championship game, as next year the new alignments feature only three divisions. The win also capped off a perfect season for the Bobcats. Plymouth went 9-0 in the regular season and beat St. Thomas in the semifinals before knocking off the Pioneers in the final.

For a complete recap of the game from Matt Perloff and a full host of pictures, see this Thursday's edition of the Plymouth Record-Enterprise.
