Tigers lose in area round end season with 8-4 record

BURLESON – For a half, Jacksboro gave No. 9 Rogers a fight, things changed very quickly in the second half, as Rogers scored five touchdowns to pull away to a 46-14 area round win over the Tigers at Burleson Stadium.

After Rogers scored on a 9-yard pass on its first drive of the game, Jacksboro used the running back duo of Justin Loucks and Caleb Helm to move the ball downfield. The squad tried its first pass early in the second quarter to no avail.

On fourth-and-17 at the Eagle 34-yard-line, Jordan Yount and Landon Davenport combined on a 32-yard strike to set up first-and-goal at the two. Four plays later, Helm found the end zone from a yard out and the Edwin Salazar extra point was good to knot the game at seven.

The rest of the half was nothing but turnovers, Jacksboro getting a fumble recovery from Davenport, but the Tigers coughed up the ball twice to keep Rogers up 14-7. 

To start the second half, Rogers used a long kickoff return to start the drive deep in Tiger territory. One play later, Heath Shiller scored from 15 yards out. 

Behind a 43-yard run by Yount the Tigers drove the Eagle 11-yard-line. After a Tiger penalty, the drive stalled resulting in Jacksboro turning the ball over on downs.
