Monta wins Ikyuu in an aerial battle by snatching the ball away from him in mid-air, and scores a touchdown by successfully catching a long pass. Ikkyu finally admits Monta as a rival but still states that the 'Number One' in Kanto is still himself. Monta's successful touchdown brought back a momentum to the Devil Bats. Near the end of the episode Agon shows his true strength by imitating Sena's Devil Bat Ghost and passing Sena with it, proving the reign of natural physical talent such as himself as compared to the Sena who had completed the move by intensive training. Sena's knee starts hurting after he used Devil Bat Ghost too many times and caused an 'act' incident between Hiruma and Musashi about the future of a sports player. In the next play, Eyeshield 21 intercepts Unsui's 'Tranquil Reflections' by abandoning the post of defending the prodigy, Agon.

Within those 4 seconds, Hiruma distracts the other team by causing an uproar in the audience. When it looks like Hiruma is getting the crowd worked up this sets him in motion and the ball is directly snapped to Sena. He runs it but gets covered by Agon. Sena then tosses the ball in the air and Hiruma catches it and scores by running it past Agon. The score is now 35 to 34. Touchdowns are worth 2 points now and kicks are worth one. With no chance to win in a tiebreaker, they must score a touchdown on the last play. Hiruma takes the ball and runs towards the Shinryuuji defense line.
