Jackrabbits Fall to Lindale

The Forney Jackrabbits travelled to east Texas Friday night to face the Lindale Eagles. The start of the game was delayed by an hour and played in rainy conditions. Eventually, Lindale bested the Jackrabbits by a score of 31-27. The Jackrabbits fall to 0-2 on the season, as they start district play this week with a home game against North Forney.

Neither team managed to put a score on the board in the first quarter. Lindale moved the ball well from the beginning, through the air and on the ground. The Eagles missed an early field goal and couldn’t break through until the second quarter. The Jackrabbits had their own chance to open the scoring, but a fumble at the three yardline stopped what had been a great drive.
