Trinity quarterback Brian Brohm, who as a three-year starter never lost a playoff game, threw for 166-yards in the win.

"We were 0-4 and still talking state championship," said Brohm afterwards.
The Shamrocks took an early lead by scoring on their opening drive. Twice it appeared that the Tiger defense had held, but Trinity coverted two fourth down possessions on the drive to keep it alive.
St. X tied the score when they took advantage of a Trinity fumble. Senior Dan Bick scored on a 2-yard run to knot the score at 7-7.
Trailing 14-7, Trinity recovered a St. X fumble and converted it into a touchdown midway through the second quarter.
With 6:12 remaining in the third quarter, Trinity kicker Vince Heller connected on a 37-yard field goal attempt to score the only points of the second half and giving Trinity a 17-14 edge.
St. X was led by running back K.J. Austin-Bruce, who rushed for 75 yards.
"I really can't believe we won three in a row," continued Brohm. "It's like what you dream up when you're a kid."
