"We're very disappointed in the outcome," Batavia coach Dennis Piron said. "I love these kids. I'm glad that they had state goals, [and] they strived to win a conference title this year, and they came up seven points short."
After North punted on its first possession, Batavia took two plays to strike first. Cooper connected with Eric Peterson for a 73-yard strike and a 7-0 lead.
North punted on its first three possessions, but found momentum in the second quarter. A Cooper interception, converted by North's Chris Edlund, turned into a six-play drive that ended on three consecutive Hohensee completions. The last was to Nubin for a 16-yard tying touchdown.
