There’s no other word for it. For the East Jackson Eagles, Friday night was painful. The pain was dished out by the Eagles of Riverside Military Academy, who trounced the “Pride of the East Side” 44-6 in Gainesville.
The Eagles will have to put the loss behind them this week, as they prepare to host the Banks County Leopards Friday night. The Leopards come into Friday night’s match up off a 12-7 loss to North Oconee. Side by side, the Leopards have scored 132 points to East Jackson’s 31. However, the Eagles have allowed fewer points to be scored against them than the Leopards, 134 to 140.
Game time Friday night is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
