The North edged the South 7-3 in the 28th annual North/South McDonald's, Buckeye Superstore All-Star Football game.  After the South has taken a 3-0 lead on a 22 yard field goal by Clear Fork's Justin Homerick, the North would respond with the only touchdown of the night which was set up by Madison's Dalton Fix who on fourth down decided to do what the did in the Rams regional semifinal against Toledo Central Catholic, run a fake punt.  The play worked leading to Shelby's Andrew Baird running the ball in from one yard out.  The extra point was good and with 6:01 left in the first half the North led 7-3.

But that would be all the scoring for the rest of the night.  It was all defense after that.  In the second half, the South had a shot at a big play touchdown late in the third quarter when South quarterback Bryce Staats of Danville lofted a pass in the direction of Colonel Crawford's Alec Hetzel who looked to have a step on the defense, but at the last second Ashland's Zachary Thompson knocked the ball away.  The South did have two other opportunities at winning the game late in the fourth quarter but interceptions by Madison's Kobi Johnson and Kale Huss kept the final score at 7-3 in favor of the North.

Game MVP awards went to Bryce Staats of Danville for Offensive back.   Alex Widman of Bucyrus Offensive line.  Kobi Johnson,  Madison, Defensive back.  Mike Hollis, Galion, Defensive line.  Special Teams, Dalton Fix, Madison.  Offensive MVP, Andrew Baird, Shelby.  Defensive MVP, Kale Huss, Madison.  Chris Spielman Award, Michael Boals, Lexington.
