The Kentwood Kangaroos defeated the Oak Grove Tigers by a final score of 40-21 to capture the Class 1A state football championship.

The Kangaroos fell behind early after their first offensive play was an interception returned for a touchdown by Oak Grove.  Kentwood would dominate after that, outscoring the Tigers 40-14 the rest of the way.  The Kangaroos also avenged their loss last year in the state championship game, when they fell to West St. John in the Superdome.
