Isaac Aakre threw a 46-yard touchdown pass to Clay Fisher with 1:00 left to give top-ranked Millard North a 17-14 victory over No. 9 Omaha North in the Class A final Monday night.

Aakre moved the Mustangs 68 yards in four plays -- all on passes -- after the Vikings had taken a 14-10 lead on Zach Martin's 7-yard pass to Casey Sales with 1:40 to play.

The Vikings (10-3) had a chance to force overtime, but Conner Phillips pulled a 32-yard field-goal attempt wide left with 13 seconds left.

Aakre ran 22 times for 110 yards and completed 6 of 8 passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns for the Mustangs (13-0).

Calvin Strong led Omaha North with 157 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries, and Martin was 9 of 24 for 154 yards and a TD.

It was the Mustangs' fourth state title since 2003.
