CLIFTON, OH (FOX19) -

Moeller beat Colerain 21-24 Saturday to advance to the Ohio division I state semi-finals.

At Nippert Stadium Moeller quarterback Spencer Iacavone scored on a three yard touchdown run late in the first quarter and the Crusaders never gave up the lead on the way to a 24-21 win over Colerain.  With the win the Crusaders move on to the state semifinals and will play Pickerington North Saturday night at a site yet to be determined.

Moeller was led by senior running back Keith Watkins  who gained 203 yards rushing on 33 carries.

The Cardinals cut the lead  to three points twice in the second half, including with 1:23 to go in the game when quarterback Alfred Ramsby hit Chris Davis for a five yard touchdown.  But the Cardinals couldn't complete the comeback.  Colerain ends its season 12-1.
