Stephenson high entered Friday night's showdown Douglass High with a No. 7 ranking and a nearly flawless regular season.
And while the Jaguars will still be a force to watch for in the playoffs, they couldn't put an exclamation mark on what has been a stellar season - a year in which their only loss prior to Friday was at the hands of M.L. King High.
No, the finishing touches couldn't be placed because the Astros pulled off a 13-12 upset.
Douglass (7-2 overall, 6-2 regional play) was led by two rushing scores by tailback Michael Patrick. Safety Rodney Wright then sealed the Astros victory with a late interception with Stephenson (8-2, 6-2) threatening.
Raymond Sanders scored the lone Jaguars touchdown.
