CLIFTON HEIGHTS, OH (FOX19) -

It took overtime and a big break for unbeaten Colerain to beat Elder Saturday night at Nippert Stadium and advance to the regional championship.

Down 28-20 with less than twenty seconds left, Elder forced overtime when Josh Moore connected with Joe Ramstetter in the endzone on 4th and 19.  Ramstetter caught 9 passes for 170 yards, three touchdowns and converted the game tying two-pointer to force overtime.


Elder had the ball first in OT and scored first.  Chris Schroer's touchdown gave Elder a 34-28 lead, but the extra point was missed.  Colerain quarterback L.A. Ramsby scored on the first play of Colerain's possession and Zach Gehner's extra point vaulted Colerain to a 35-34 win and a spot in the regional final.

Colerain will play Moeller for the regional championship.  The Crusaders beat Lakota East 46-20.  Moeller running back Keith Watkins had 169 yards rushing and three touchdowns.
