CANTON, Ohio -- Spencer Iacavone's efficient passing and a stout defense helped Cincinnati Moeller defeat Toledo Whitmer for the Ohio Division I championship 20-13 Saturday night at Fawcett Stadium.

The Crusaders (12-3) won their seventh title - first since 1985. They lost title games in 1989, 1991 and 1997.

Iacovone went 15 of 19 for 161 yards and a 7-yard touchdown to Keith Watkins for Moeller, which used a high-powered offense to get to its 12th title game overall- then won with defense.

Moeller opponents averaged 25.3 points in 14 games. Whitmer's total was the lowest against the Crusaders this year.

The Panthers (14-1), in their first title game, got 288 total yards from quarterback Nick Holley, who passed for 196 and two TDs.
