Although a second half collapse isn't the way a team wants to end a season, the Eupora Eagles need to look at the positives.
Eupora let Baldwyn score 31-unanswered points Friday night to win 31-14 and advance to the Class 2A North State championship.
It is discerning for Eupora fans to know they led and dominated early in that game, and then got dominated from the second quarter on.
The Eagles played in the state championship last year, but will have to watch at home this season.
Eupora head coach Junior Graham gathered his team after the game, and tried to lift their spirits as tears fell from the young men's eyes.
