Right idea. Wrong execution.
At least in the second half, apparently. The first, it looked to be just what Northside had drawn up in its matchup Saturday against Lee County.
The Eagles, upset winners over second-ranked Coffee the week prior, led the No. 1 team 7-3 at that point. The Trojans scored first on a 14-yard field goal from Austin Beaver. Northside answered on a 10-yard pass and point after.
Unfortunately for the blue and orange faithful, it turned out to be their only score. Lee County went on to score twice in the third and once in the fourth to win 24-7.
It improved to 7-0 overall, 1-0 in Region 1-AAAAAA as a result. The Eagles fell to 4-4, 1-1.
