The post-season came to an end for the East Jackson Lady Eagles last Tuesday night, as they lost in the first round of region tournament play to Rabun County.
The Lady Eagles had hoped momentum from a Feb. 16 victory over Oglethorpe County that sent them to the first round would carry over to their pairing against the Lady Wildcats.
But Rabun County took control of the game right from the beginning, pulling out a 13-7 lead by the end of the first quarter. In the second quarter, the Lady Eagles found themselves held to five points while Rabun tacked on an additional 13 points to carry a 26-12 lead into the half.
