No matter the outcome, the East Jackson Comprehensive High School Eagles proved their mettle Friday night.
After falling behind 21-7 in the first half against Jefferson, the Eagles rallied in the fourth quarter to move to within seven points of tying the game that decided the region 8-AA champion.
But they came up just shy, as Jefferson scored late to win 35-21.
