The Prosser Mustangs won the Class 2A state football title Saturday at the Tacoma Dome, beating the Tumwater Thunderbirds 22-15.

The Thunderbirds threatened late, recovering a Prosser fumble with 1:09 to play and then advancing to the Mustangs’ 10.

But with 30 seconds to play, the Thunderbirds fumbled on second-and-goal, and Prosser’s Riley Lusk fell on the ball to preserve the Mustangs’ win.

First-year coach Corey Ingvalson, who played on Prosser’s 1999 state champion team, guided the Mustangs to their fifth state title.
