East Gadsden High School’s Jaguars gave the Chiles Timberwolves a run for their money in a homecoming matchup on the road. In the end, Chiles came out on top, 37-20.

During the first half of play, the Jags showed promise, and the score was tied up at 20-20 at the buzzer.

But in the second half, Chiles scored on three straight drives. The Timberwolves moved the ball 80 yards in 10 plays, and added points to the board, making the  score 3-20.

East Gadsden was unable to move the ball and went four-and-out – the Jags were held to only 11 plays in the second half – and Chiles took possession of the ball once again. The Wolves then moved the ball 71 yards, ending the drive with a 3-yard touchdown with less than 2 minutes left in the game.

The loss takes the Jags’ season record to 1-4.

EGHS hosts Taylor County (3-2) this week in District 2-2B action.
