It was just too little, too late for the Jefferson offense.

The Eagles were unable to overcome a scoreless first half as Brodhead/Juda defeated Jefferson, 21-13, in a Rock Valley Conference game Friday night in Jefferson.

“They got some guys that play hard in the middle they tried to take away power, which is really our bread and butter,” Jefferson head coach Steve Gee said. “They did a nice job of that.”

The Eagles picked up just one first down in the first half, which came off a defensive holding penalty.

Senior running back Jeffrey Zeh rushed for 109 yards on nine attempts for the Eagles in their defeat.

Both teams are even with 2-2 records this season.
