Har-Ber ended up winning 22-19 and eased to victory in the winner-take-all game with a 26-14 triumph.

"Coach Conaway and his staff do a great job bringing in some elite talent," Har-Ber coach Chris Wood said. "Today we had to go through Fayetteville, Bentonville, Broken Arrow and Bixby. I mean that's a daunting task cause they're such great programs. I'm just proud of the resiliency of our guys."
