As the Bay Area Christian Broncos looked to go 6-3 in the season on their homecoming night, they ended up being edged, 26-21, on a last-second Hail Mary pass against The Woodlands Christian.
Bay Area Christian struck first as Cameron Ball ran in for the first touchdown of the night. Not too much later, The Woodlands Christian Warriors struck back as quarterback Caden Queck scored on a quarterback sneak to tie the game, 7-7, in the second quarter.
The Broncos moved well down the field each time they had the ball, and the Warriors had a hard time keeping up. With less than a minute left to play in the half, Ball intercepted the ball in the Warriors’ end zone resulting in a touchback ending the first half.
The Warriors did not waste any time as Queck scored again on another quarterback sneak, and they tied it up, 14-14, at the beginning of the third quarter.
Jake Haworth caught a 56-yard pass for a touchdown to give the Warriors a 20-14 lead, unfortunately missing the extra point attempt. With less than a minute left to play, the Broncos scored a touchdown and the extra point to put them ahead 21-20.
Racing the clock, the Warriors looked to score while the Broncos were putting on the best defense performance of the night.
With one-second left in the game, Queck threw a Hail Mary and Zach Baker caught it after it bounced off one of the Broncos’ player’s hand. That resulted in the game-winning touchdown for the Warriors with the final score being 26-21. The Warriors move on to 4-5, while the Broncos move to 5-4.
