Twenty-four and counting.
That's how many games it's been since No. 1-ranked Northside-Warner Robins has lost one after Friday night's 22-12 outcome against Westside-Macon.
The Eagles (9-0 overall, 6-0 Region 4-AAAA) benefitted from two Seminoles (7-2, 4-2) turnovers in the final period and, as they have done all season, capitalized.
Trailing 12-8, Northside-Warner Robins used the turnovers to prevent the streak-busting upset. Brandon Jordan scored on a 34-yard run to give the Eagles a 15-12 lead. Then, starting quarterback Joe Scott found Nick Bass on an 18-yard scoring pass top give the Eagles a 22-12 lead for good.
Scott, who replaced injured starter Marques Ivory after the star signal caller broke his ankle two weeks ago, found Bass after K.J. Morton came up with a big interception deep in Seminoles territory.
Two-star tailback Tijuan Green was the offensive star of the game and was able give Northside-Warner Robins their first points of the game on a four-yard run in the second quarter.
The 5-foot-11, 190-pound speedster finished the contest with a game-high 155 yards rushing on 27 carries.
