OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - Freshman quarterback Ty Keyes threw for 333 yards and three touchdowns as Taylorsville defeated Winona, 41-26, on Friday for the Class 2A state championship.
The Tartars (15-1) won their sixth state title but first since 2002.
Jatyler Moore threw for 103 yards and rushed for 73 yards for Winona (11-4). The Tigers defeated Calhoun City in last week's North Half championship game to advance to the finals for the first time.
"Our city was very lit up the last 2 or 3 weeks," Winona head coach Joey Tompkins said. "It's big for our program. Our goal is to win it and we fell a little bit short of the goal, but there's a lot to build on for the next year and the years to come."
