2019 NHSA National Tournament

EVANGEL TOPS EZELL-HARDING 92-90 TO WIN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME

In what might be the highest scoring game this year in high school football and possibly ever in 8-man football, Evangel Christian Lightning and Ezell-Harding Eagles played for the NHSA National Championship in Panama City Beach. Evangel Christian from Alabaster, Alabama was successful in their 2-point attempt in the first overtime that clinched the win (92-90) over Ezell-Harding Christian Eagles from Antioch, Tennessee. Evangel was the 2018 National Champions so they become the first team to win back to back championships in the 9 year history of the NHSA National Championship Tournament (8-man Football). The Lightning aerial attack was headed by senior quarterback Tyler Henderson, the tournament MVP. Ezell-Harding’s run-oriented offense was led by senior quarterback Derek Griffin. The game was more like a track meet as touchdowns were often on long runs or pass plays of more than 50 yards. The halftime score was 56-48 with Ezell-Harding in the lead. Evangel trailed the entire second half before tying the game in the last minute of the game.
