The Argoina/Attica Titans are the state runner-up for the second consecutive year. They lost to Victoria 36-28 on Saturday in Newton, Kansas in the 8-man Div. II title game.

After a monster second half, A&A was able to tie the game at 28 with under three minutes to go. With 16 seconds left in the fourth, on Victoria's ensuing possession, the Titan defense got them to a 4th and inches situation. The Knights went for it with a routine run up the middle that went for 55 yards and the game winning score. Heartbreak for the Titans.
