Barbe's 48-47 win against Evangel Christian on Friday night will probably be a contender for prep game of the year when it's all said and done. Barbe jumped out to a 28-7 lead before allowing the Eagles back into the game. A go-ahead touchdown with 25 seconds left to make the score 48-41 in Barbe's favor finally seemed like the clincher.

But Evangel raced back with an 80-yard hail mary score and seemed poised to send the game to overtime. Instead, the Eagles opted for a two-point conversion and the win. Evangel quarterback Dakota Duron had an open man for the game-winning points, but he overthrew him while scrambling away from the Bucs defense.
