It was the battle of the Eagles as the Eagles of Totino-Grace prepared to face the Eagles of Eden Prairie in yet another Prep Bowl with the Eden Prairie Eagles representing their section. The 2014 appearance marked the Eagles’ 10th appearance in the Prep Bowl since 1996.
The Totino-Grace gave Eden Prairie a run for their money in the first half, jumping up to a 14-0 lead and finishing the half with a 21-7 lead of the Eagles of Eden Prairie, who were looking for their fourth consecutive Prep Bowl win.
Sure enough, Eden Prairie would score three straight touchdowns and take a 28-21 lead with 2:46 left in the game.
Totino-Grace scored with 1:39 left and, with less than two minutes left in the game, elected to go for the win (a two point conversion) instead of sending the game to overtime with an extra point. The result, Eden Prairie wins the Prep Bowl.
The Eden Prairie Eagles won their fourth consecutive Prep Bowl. This Prep Bowl was the first played in TCF Bank Stadium.
