VERMILLION (AP) — Kole Beeson scored on a 38-yard pass with 1:08 to play as Avon came from behind to beat Hamlin 24-22 in the state 9B championship game Friday.

Logan Mudder found Beeson, who weaved his way down the sideline to tie the game. Devin Tolsma’s conversion run provided the game-winning points as the Pirates (12-0) claimed their fifth state championship.
