East Side Pride was on full display Thursday, November 2, as the East High Dragons defeated the Buchtel Griffins for the 2017 City Series Postseason football title. The win came just two weeks after Buchtel had prevailed in a 15-13 contest—but the Dragons turned the tables and won a memorable championship game, 21-20.

The win game the Dragons their second consecutive title, and was primarily driven by an outstanding defensive effort, which resulted in two scores from that side of the ball. Much of the critical action took place within the last two minutes of the game, as a defensive score by East was matched by a Buchtel touchdown drive. Unfortunately for the Griffins, what would have been the game-tying extra point attempt was missed, thus delivering the victory to the Dragons. What a game!
