One of the craziest endings to a high school football happened Sunday night.

The WCAC, which stands for Washington Catholic Athletic Conference, championship game saw Gonzaga and DeMatha have a wild closing 45 seconds with three lead changes.

Gonzaga pulled out the win, 46-43, on a Hail Mary throw at the buzzer. There was also a closing-minute drive resulting in a touchdown to propel Gonzaga into the lead and subsequent kick return to regain the lead for DeMatha prior to the Hail Mary heave.

“It was a perfect ball from [quarterback] Caleb [Williams], and I just went up there and I got it,” Gonzaga receiver John Marshall, who caught the pass, told the Washington Post. “Thank God.”
