Friday Night Lights I: tear your hearts out, OT loss

Early in the second quarter in the 2015 season opener: Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City 7, B-B-E 6. At halftime, the Jaguars held a 22-14 lead.

At the 4th quarter break: 22-22 tie!

End of regulation: 22-22 tie!!!!!

Final in overtime: ACGC 28, Jaguars 22. In overtime, the Jaguars gained a couple yards before losing big yardage on fourth was ugly. The Falcons gained rushes of seven and three yards to score the game's final touchdown and start the year 1-0.

Here's a short video clip from the first quarter of the game, when the Jaguars stopped A-C-GC on their second drive of the game:

Here's video showing part of the first touchdown drive by the Jaguars tonight. They scored all 22 points in the second quarter.
