The Jones Longhorns lost in the second round of 2A playoffs against the Adair Warriors with a score of 27-32, on Friday, November 22nd.
Adair began with an early touchdown and a 2-pt conversion making the score 8-0 Warriors. Soon after, Elijah Reed scored a 10-yard rushing touchdown and Carson May completed a 20-yard pass to Kaden Karl for the touchdown. At the end of the first quarter the score is tied up 14-14. The score remained tied until the end of the second quarter, when Adair scored with barely any time left on the clock. The Longhorns went into the second half down 6.
The second half was tough for the Longhorns. They kept the score close, but they threw an interception and Adair kept the ball until the time ran out.
The Longhorns had an amazing season with a record of 10-2. Even with multiple injuries, this team proved to be very scrappy and hard-working. Horns Up!!!
