Jonesboro, Evant seasons end

Jonesboro’s season went downhill after its milestone thrilling double overtime win over Zephyr on November 2.

The last two weeks left the Eagles wondering what went wrong. First, they lost the outright District 15-1A title in a rare loss to rival Evant in the season fi nale.

Then on Friday, Nov. 16 they traveled to Brady to face the District 16-1A champion Leakey Eagles. Leakey’s speed and a huge second quarter kickoff return for a pivotal score were the difference in a 66-30 loss for Jonesboro. The loss ended their season at 6-5. It was a rare quick exit for Jonesboro, who has had tremendous success with two state final appearances in a row heading into this season.
