I read Barbe threw three picks in the first half, but they were still tied 28-28 at halftime. If Barbe didn't shoot itself in the foot repeatedly, they probably would have had the game iced by halftime, it sounds like.
Parkway shot itself in the foot as well. They were up 28-21 with a little over 2 min. left in the first half and were at the Barbe 30 and driving down the field when they fumbled the ball. They could have been up 2 scores and received the ball the begining of the second half. Parkway had 3 turnovers and Barbe did what good teams do and capitalized on them. Parkway had 3 fumbles, one of them in the last 6 min. of the game where the QB stretched the ball over the pylon and fumbled for a touchback. Parkway also tried a onsides kick after tying the game at 35 and didn't recover it and held Barbe to a long field goal try that they missed, they also had a punt from their goaline that went 5 yards that the Parkway D stepped up and held them to a field goal.Parkway had thier chances and didn't capitalize. As far as Barbe's offense, the big tightend didn't do a thing agianst Parkway, Fontenot was the key to their success, the kid kept plays alive with his legs, very shifty and hard to bring down. Parkway had them to 3rd and 4th and long several times and the kid stepped up and made the plays. Quinn is impressive, very fast and has good hands. The one long bomb happened because the QB stretched out the play and the db's came up because they thought he was running and Quinn took advantage and went deep and was wide open. The other 3 td's were very short and inside the 10 yardline with our db giving a cushion of 5 yards and retreating when the ball was snapped thus all he had to do is go to the goaline and turn around. The key to beating Barbe is to contain their QB, he extended the play with his legs so many times agianst Parkway. It was a good and exciting game and I'm proud of how Parkway played and Barbe made the plays necessary and deserved the win. I hope Barbe wins so at least we can say that we lost to the State Champs.
