WAYNE -- Wayne opened the game with a turnover and finished the game with a turnover. James Monroe defeated Wayne in the semifinals Saturday night at Pioneer field, 21-14.

Justin Gilkerson scored Wayne's first touchdown on the very first play in the 2nd Quarter. Wayne still trailed 7-6 after the missed extra point. The Mavericks led at halftime 14-6.

The Mavericks jumped out to a 21-6 lead in the 3rd quarter, thanks to a 4 yard touchdown by Taylor Robertson.

The defending double-a champions would not give up. Trailing by 15 points, Wayne's Joey Ferguson tossed a 20 yard td strike to Justin Gilkerson, after the two point conversion, Wayne only trailed 21-14.

The Pioneers last second effort were dashed with under 1:00 to go when Ferguson was intercepted at midfield, sealing the win for the Mavericks.
