WACO, Texas — Lubbock Christian’s season ended one win short of a state title Saturday, as the Eagles lost 49-18 to Geneva.

Before halftime, Geneva scored another touchdown to go up 28-18, and scored 21 unanswered points in the second half to run away with the victory.
Quarterback Alex Timmons threw for each of Lubbock Christian’s three touchdowns, per MaxPreps.com.
The Eagles finished the season 13-1, putting together one of the better seasons by any private school in the state.
