MADISON, Wis. -

Senior quarterback Jake Laihinen rushed and passed for a touchdown and Mequon Homestead saved its best defensive performance for last, shutting out three-time defending champion Waunakee 14-0 in the WIAA Division 2 championship Friday at Camp Randall.

The victory gives Homestead (12-1) its fourth state championship since 1999 and its first in Division 2.

Despite going 1-for-11 on third downs, Homestead outgained Waunakee 258-215 and turned back the Warriors three times on fourth-down attempts inside its 5-yard line.

Giving up 10 points per game on the year, the Hilltoppers shut down a Waunakee offense that was averaging 40.3 points per contest during the season.

Waunakee (12-1) was looking to set a new WIAA record with its 49th straight victory, but was shut out for the first time since November 2005.
