The Hebron Christian Eagles (1-7; 0-2) had a 22-14 lead in the middle of the fourth quarter against the Rams of Immanuel (4-5; 1-1) on Friday night.
The Rams took back the momentum on an 80-yard half back pass from their own five-yard line, and they took back the game, scoring 21 unanswered points to defeat the Eagles 35-22.
â€śIt was a heartbreaker,â€ť said Hebron head coach Greg Watkins. â€śWe played real good ball.â€ť
The Eagles led most of the game, thanks to a pair of touchdown runs by Marques Robinson and a 65-yard touchdown rush by Jay Shaw.
Shaw finished the game with 130 yards on the ground.
The Eagles had more opportunities to score in the game, but two interceptions and a fumble deep in Rams territory kept them out of the end zone on what could have been an three touchdowns.
â€śWe had some bad breaks,â€ť Watkins said. â€śWe played hard the whole game. This group has really come together. They are a good group of guys.â€ť
Hebron will host Calhoun Academy next week in a non-league match.
Immanuel will try to improve its district record against Central Homes.
