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.
“It was a heartbreaker,” said Hebron head coach Greg Watkins. “We played real good ball.”
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.
“We had some bad breaks,” Watkins said. “We played hard the whole game. This group has really come together. They are a good group of guys.”
Hebron will host Calhoun Academy next week in a non-league match.
Immanuel will try to improve its district record against Central Homes.
