The Vikings (10-3) had a chance to force overtime, but Conner Phillips pulled a 32-yard field-goal attempt wide left with 13 seconds left.

Aakre ran 22 times for 110 yards and completed 6 of 8 passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns for the Mustangs (13-0).

It was the Mustangs' fourth state title since 2003.
