It was a tight game until the fourth quarter but Tiffin Columbian would explode for a 41-18 victory.

The Tornadoes got on the board their opening drive taking a 7-0 lead just over three minutes into the game on a 23- yard TD run by freshman Russ Yeast. Ontario would respond on their ensuing possession on a 38-yard hookup from Tyler Boatwright to Cameron Mack to make it 7-6.

The Warriors would then take a 12-7 lead on a 2-yard scamper by Matt Eichelberger, set up by a 78- yard interception return by Eddrick Holley. But with a minute to go before the half Columbian's Ryan Lynch gave the Tornadoes the lead back on a 5-yard TD run to make it 14- 12 at the break.

Ontario would force a Columbian punt early in the third quarter that Mack would return for a 70-yard score, giving the Warriors an 18-14 advantage. It would be all Tornadoes from there however, as they shut out Ontario the rest of the way while racking up four unanswered scores to cruise to their ninth consecutive victory.

Columbian's win improves their record to 9-1 and wraps up an outright NOL championship with a 6-0 conference mark. The Tornadoes will host a Division III playoff game in week 11. Lynch finished with 301 yards and 3 TD's on 28 carries, but fumbled 3 times, losing 2 of them.

Mack had 9 catches for 115 yds and a score, finishing with over 1,000 receiving yards in his senior season. The Warriors wrap-up their first season in the NOL at 5-5 overall, 2-4 in the conference.
