On a rainy and overcast evening in Atlanta Tx, the Gladewater Bears continued their quest of a playoff spot as they traveled to take on the Atlanta Rabbits at Rabbits stadium and came away with a 28-20 win.
The Bears struck first as Kyron Wilson took it in from 3 yards out to give the Bears an early 7-0 lead.
The Gladewater defense played a wonderful 1st half with a shutout of Atlanta. The Bears added to their lead with 4 mins left in the half when Wilson found Kayson Harris for a 5 yard TD pass and a 14-0 Bears lead at the half.
In the third, Atlanta recovered a touchdown in the end zone to cut the gap to 14-7, but the Bears answered with a 28-yard touchdown run by Wilson.
A 66-yard touchdown pass from Peyton Harrison to Marquavion Owens again narrow the gap for the Rabbits, but Carson Cooper scored on a 7-yard run for the Bears in the fourth.
The Rabbits scored on a 33-yard TD pass from Harrison to Rowe late to make the final 28-20.
Watson finished with 23 carries for 197 yards, and Jamari Gibson added 92 yards on 21 carries for the Eagles. Williams rushed for 106 yards on 19 carries, and Taylor passed for 93 yards in the loss for Jefferson.
The Bears (2-7, 2-2) will host White Oak next week. Atlanta (4-5, 2-2) will visit Tatum.
