LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) -- Dom Dunnaville ran for three touchdowns and Northside played stout defense, leading the Vikings to a 24-10 victory against James Monroe in the VHSL's Group 3A state championship game on Saturday at Liberty University.

Dunnaville scored on runs of six, one and nine yards and Zach Large added a 37-yard field goal for Northside (13-1), which won its second state championship in five seasons.

James Monroe (10-5) trailed 10-0 at halftime and lost in the title game for the third consecutive season.

James Monroe closed to within 10-3 on its opening drive of the second half, but Northside responded with another TD drive to ice it.

James Monroe's lone touchdown came on a 12-yard pass from Jay Croggins to Calvin Kennedy with 8:05 to play.
