After building a 28-0 halftime lead, Reitz narrowly survived an amazing Wildcat comeback. Mater Dei went on a 35-7 second-half run, but a Panther touchdown with 13 seconds left secured a Reitz win and a share of the city title with the Wildcats.
The Panthers improved to 6-3 overall, 5-2 in the SIAC and 5-1 in the city. Mater Dei lost their second straight, falling to 7-2, 5-2 and 5-1, respectively.
