 TD Run: 16yds
 Game Result: Colby 44, Lancaster  43  (F-OT)
Colby capped a brilliant season with one of the most thrilling victories in championship history with their win in overtime 44-43 over Lancaster. Junior running back Zach Peissig led the offensive onslaught by the Hornets in the first half of the D5 final. Relentlessly ripping off long runs, Peissig was the main cog in the Hornets putting up 30 points by halftime. Peissig finished the game with 126 yards on 17 carries but a leg injury limited his play in the second half and also slowed Colby to just one touchdown. But that 16 yard TD run by Peissig was enough to get to overtime against Lancaster. In OT, Lancaster scored first to put on the pressure, but Tyler Meyer went high above a defensive crowd to steal a 25 yard pass in the endzone from Aaron Koerner. Michael Knetter calmly knocked the extra point attempt between the uprights and Colby had another gold ball for the trophy case. Coach Jeff Rosemeyer appears to be loaded again next year with Peissig being the big key as they continue to build on their strong football tradition.
