Darst recognized the importance of the defensive play made by Peterson.
"That was big," Darst said. "The kid that scored, Jon Peterson, I think he has scored three touchdowns on defense this year. He is one of those kids that has a knack for that kind of stuff.
"He is a playmaker for me. I am tickled for him that he was able to do something like that. That is something he will never forget. Here you are in the state playoffs and score the first touchdown on defense. That is what you live for in high school football.''
Logan never could recover from the huge turnaround as on the next offensive possession for the Wildcats, Point Pleasant forced a three-and-out. A bad snap on the punt resulted in a 19-yard loss.
The Big Blacks got great field position at the Logan 40-yard line, and cashed in with a Walton 1-yard touchdown run to give Point Pleasant a 14-0 lead in the first quarter.
Point Pleasant got a huge rushing day from Walton and Cody Mitchell. Both went over 100 yards rushing on the night and combined for 266 yards on 46 attempts.
Mitchell led the way with 142 yards on 25 carries and two touchdowns while Walton had 124 yards on 21 totes with three scores, including one receiving. As a team, the Big Blacks rushed for 324 yards.
"They both are great running backs," Darst said. "We haven't tried to showcase a kid. They both have shined all year. Those two guys are best friends and complement each other. If you try and key on one, I am going to hurt you with the other one. That is what makes it nice."
It was a tough ending to the season and career for Mullins, who stepped down from the Logan coaching position after 10 seasons to spend more time with his family.
"I dedicated the last 19 years here at Logan," said a choked-up Mullins. "I just move on and help however I can. It's time for somebody else to take a chance. I wish the outcome would have been different."
Street closed out his standout Wildcat career with 109 yards on 15 carries. The senior had 106 yards at halftime, but in trailing, his team was forced to mostly pass in the second half.
