Guyer will defend its state title after a thrilling comeback 22-16 win over Highland Park at Allen Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Wildcats were down 10-0 at the half, but came alive in the fourth quarter.

Guyer junior running back Anthony Taylor got things started with a 24-yard scamper to the endzone and QB Jerrod Heard added a 25-yard rushing touchdown to take the Wildcats’ first lead in the game with just over four minutes to go.

After a Highland Park score, Heard answered with a long drive downfield capped with another rushing touchdown with 55 seconds remaining to put it away for Guyer.

Ralston scored on runs of 2-yards and 35-yards respectively in the second half to put the Eagles up 35-0, finishing the game with 147 yards rushing.

Cole Hedlund kicked a 36-yard field goal in the fourth quarter.
