The defending state champions won’t be returning to the postseason.

Hickman, the No. 2 team in Class 6, was dominated for three quarters by Rock Bridge, which upset its cross-town rival 21-18 in the Providence Bowl at Faurot Field. Only a late rally in which the Kewpies scored 15 fourth-quarter points made the game close.

With the victory the Bruins (6-3) clinched the Class 6, District 6 championship and will advance to the state quarterfinals on Nov. 11.

Rock Bridge was led by junior quarterback Logan Gray, who threw three touchdown passes including a 77-yard touchdown to senior wide receiver Josh Conyers on the Bruins’ first play of the game.

In the first half, Gray played what his coach, A.J. Ofodile, called the best half of football he has ever seen him play. The Kewpies, known for their dominating defense, were picked apart by Gray who finished that first half, 12 for 15 with 197 yards and two touchdowns. He finished the game 17 of 24 for 243 yards and three touchdowns. Tight end/linebacker Aron White caught two touchdown passes and also had an interception.
