In their first Region 2-AAAAA game of the year, the Evans High School Knights faced a tough measuring stick Friday night.
After beating Westside two weeks ago, the Knights took a step up as they went up against the No. 1 team in class AAAAA. The Knights came up short, falling to the Eagles of Northside, Warner Robins, 38-6.
“We probably faced one of the top three in the state for sure,” said Evans’ coach Marty Jackson. “It is a long season. Things are never as bad as they seem and things are never as good as they seem.”
