St. Croix Lutheran’s David Ponath dove for a first down after New London-Spicer had called its final timeout with about two minutes to play, and the Crusaders won their second Class AAA state championship in three years, outlasting the Wildcats 48-44 Saturday in the final Prep Bowl at the Metrodome.
