    Don’t know. I do know Danville beat them in consecutive title games in 1991 and 1992

    Congrats to CAL. Great Season Mayfield. Win or lose Mayfield kids win with class and lose with class. Both teams showed great sportsmanship the whole game. I think Mayfield will be back in the finals next year.

    Congratulations to CAL. They were clearly the better team. Very gutsy performance by Mayfield's QB after he got hurt.

    Last year the KHSAA uploaded all of the championship games to its YouTube page a week or two later. I look for them to do that again this year.

    I simply can't go with CAL being "clearly" the best team. Clearly is not winning by only a single touchdown with multiple Division 1 athletes on your sideline. I feel like this loss was more on Mayfield and less about CAL. Mayfield had the athletes to win this game.

    Mayfield tried too hard to establish the run and wasted too many possessions doing so against an overwhelmingly bigger, stronger team. Mayfield might have the best passing game in the state. They didn't necessarily show their full potential in this game, barely missing on a handful of deep passes where the receiver had a couple steps on the defender. In my mind if Mayfield would have went to the pass game earlier and more often they would have had a much better chance to win this game. No matter how good your defense is, a great passing offense is hard to defend in high school and that's where I think Mayfield blew their chance. They should have thrown it 10-15 more times than they did.

    With all that being said, CAL dominated the line of scrimmage, and more times than not that is where the game is won and lost. It also didnt hurt that they had, by far, the best athlete on the field if not in the state.

    This sounds like sour grapes to me.

    How so? I'm simply not fawning all over CAL like everyone else for winning by 6 points. (8 but 2 of those are on Mayfield). Not at all sour grapes. Winning and losing is part of the game. Sour grapes would be saying something was unfair...wasn't unfair at all...I simply think Mayfield makes a few decisions differently and its a different game.

    Because it was pretty clear to most who watched the game that CAL was the better team. Not to mention, when you say "This loss was more on Mayfield and less about CAL," you're implying that CAL didn't earn the win. That's simply not the case.

    CAL was the better team. Saying they aren't after the fact is sour grapes.
