NORTH CARROLLTON -- In a game where the J.Z. George Jaguars put up nearly 400 yards of total offense, turnovers proved costly as they fell to a hot Hollandale squad 46-26 on the road.

The Jags return home Friday to face Riverside for homecoming.

Head Coach Joey Tompkins said he feels the team will still have a shot to be one of the four out of six 4-2A teams to make the playoffs. Tompkins feels there are still some things that need to be corrected, even with winless Riverside coming to town.

"We had over 300 rushing yards and close to 90 yards passing, but you can't win turning the ball over five times," Tompkins said. "One of the turnovers was for a touchdown."

Tompkins said giving up the two point conversion is also a concern of his.

"We have to do a better job at giving up the two point conversion," Tompkins said. "They scored five times, so with the conversions that's ten points."

With the loss, the Jags fell to 2-6 and 1-2 in league play.
