Lane Landry's 7-yard touchdown pass to Travin Dural with 8 seconds left helped Breaux Bridge pull out a wild 49-42 victory at Woodlawn on Friday night.
The Tigers (5-0), ranked No. 2 in Class 4A, blew a 14-point second-half lead before finally subduing the Panthers (2-3) from Class 5A.
Woodlawn's Kendall Barnes threw five touchdown passes, four to Jammal Lofton. Barnes passed for 271 yards, 212 of them going to Lofton.
But the Panthers' aerial show wasn't enough to stop Breaux Bridge, which featured Landry tossing three scores to Dural, an LSU commitment.
Lamar Louis, another of Breaux Bridge's three LSU pledges, rushed for 209 yards and Adrian Menard added 159 yards and two touchdowns.
WHS trailed 42-28, but tied the game in the fourth quarter on Brent Terrance's 4-yard TD run and a 29-yard scoring strike from Barnes to Lofton.
"We fought to the bitter end against the No. 2 team in the state," Woodlawn coach Don Jones said. "My only disappointment is that we broke down again on special teams."
But Breaux Bridge calmly marched down the field by using its running game to set up the winning TD pass from Landry to Dural.
"We knew they had some talent, and we knew they could score some points," Breaux Bridge coach Paul Broussard said. "I'm proud of our kids. They never gave up. We were fortunate to get two special-team touchdowns and kind of get us over that hump."
Breaux Bridge tied the game at 28 on Menard's 1-yard TD run with 5? minutes to go in the third quarter.
After a Woodlawn three-and-out, Breaux Bridge's Tyren Alexander scooped up his own punt block and returned it 10 yards for a touchdown. Kagan Breaux's extra point gave the Tigers a 35-28 edge with 3:52 to go in the third quarter.
Breaux Bridge's defense produced another stop on the following series. Then Josh Williams gathered a punt at his 15-yard-line and sped 85 yards for a touchdown. That score left BBHS with a 42-28 cushion with 1:13 remaining in the third quarter.
Breaux Bridge set the tone for the wild first half on the second play from scrimmage. Adrian Menard raced 72 yards for a touchdown. Breaux's extra point gave the Tigers a 7-0 lead just 51 seconds into the game.
But Woodlawn needed just four plays and roughly a minute and half to tie the game at 7. Barnes and Lofton teamed on a 45-yarder with 9:31 to go in the first quarter. Jonathan Barnes added the extra point to pull the Panthers even.
Breaux Bridge went back in front, 14-7, on Landry's 47-yard TD pass to Dural with 1:02 left in the first quarter.
But Lofton's 76-yard return on the ensuing kickoff put Woodlawn inside the Breaux Bridge 10. Four plays later from the Woodlawn 1, Lofton scored an 8-yard TD on a fourth-and-goal pass from Barnes. The second Barnes-to-Lofton score helped Woodlawn tie the game at 14 just 11 seconds into the second quarter.
