LEXINGTON, Ky. (WYMT) - It was the Isaac Dixon Show in Lexington.

Dixon finished with 376 yards and five touchdowns to lead Belfry to a 33-28 win over Paducah Tilghman and clinch the eighth state title in school history.

Both of Paducah Tilghman’s first hald scores came from touchdown passes from Jack James to Camdon Marshall, including one with 11 seconds to go in the half.

The Blue Tornado scored again after Belfry fumbled the kick with 7 seconds left and Paducah Tilghman capitalized with another 35-yard TD from James to Marshall.

But Belfry came out firing with Dixon leading the charge, scoring on three consecutive drives and running out the clock to get the win.

Dixon was named MVP of the game.
