But a sharp angle on fourth down forced Nassar to pass on a short field goal, and Hill's fourth down
pass fell incomplete in the end zone. Four plays later, Quinden Floyd took his first carry up the middle
for a 78-yard touchdown and a 21-0 lead.

The score was made even more galling by a near-interception on the previous play, a third-and -7
conversion by the Eagles.

"It's nothing different from what we've done all year," Nassar said. "We fight and we fight and we fight
and we can't get over the hump. The pass before the kid broke it, we missed an interception by three
inches."

Thus, the comeback was delayed until the fourth quarter, and by then it was just a bit too late. The
Yellow Jackets didn't go quietly, though.

Hill finished a seven-play drive with a 1-yard keeper on the second play of the fourth quarter, and he
threw a perfect pass to Anthony Saincilaire with 4 minutes, 37 seconds left for a 33-yard touchdown.

But Springstead ran off all but final 1:06 and punted the Yellow Jackets to their 26 with 56.5 seconds
left.
