In the shadow of the historic Cotton Bowl on Saturday, the Rockwall Yellowjackets took the field against their lakeside neighbors, the Rowlett Eagles.

Despite trailing 12-24 at the half, Rockwall returned to the field fighting back in the third quarter. Though the Jackets closed the gap, tailing by one point late in the game, it proved to be too little, too late; the final score ended with the Eagles edging past the Jackets by a score of 34-32.

Despite, the loss, a couple Jacket seniors had big games.

Senior QB Matt Jones threw for 229 yards and an impressive four touchdowns. He added another team-high 62 yards on the ground and one rushing touchdown.

Senior WR Sam Crawford posted a team high 204 yards receiving with three touchdown catches.

After losses to Highland Park and Rowlett, the Jackets are now 0-2 on the season. They will face another difficult test this Friday as powerhouse Southlake Carroll comes to town.

Kickoff is at 7:30.
