It was the second-ranked team in VISAA Division Two versus the top team in Division One.

Blue Ridge hosting St. Stephen's-St. Agnes had all the makings of a classic battle of unbeatens and the result lived up to the hype.

P.J. White's touchdown catch with under one minute left in regulation lifted the Barons to a 30-26 comeback victory to move Blue Ridge to 5-0 and hand the Saints their first loss of the season.

The Barons wasted little time starting their homecoming off with a bang on a Cody Pegram 42-yard touchdown run to put Blue Ridge ahead 7-0.

The Saints answered with a touchdown pass and field goal to take a 10-7 lead in the second quarter.

Backed up inside the five, SSSA took a safety on a botched snap to bring the Barons within one.

Then Shawn Steen ripped off a 34 yard touchdown run to give Blue Ridge a 16-13 lead at half.

The Barons extended the lead to 23-12 in the third on a Jared Arntzen one yard TD run.

After SSSA got a touchdown back to cut it to 23-19, the Saints retook the lead with 10 minutes left to play at 26-23 before White caught a couple big passes to put the Barons in front for good.
