Despite getting double-digit performances from four players, the Riverside Military Eagles were unable to comeback and beat North Cobb Christian on Saturday in Ackworth.
The Eagles (0-1) trailed 36-17 and lost 56-50.
Trailing by 19 at the half, Riverside scored 21 points in the third quarter to cut the deficit to 10.
The Eagles outscored North Cobb Chritian in the fourth quarter, as well, but the initial deficit was too much to overcome.

Riverside Military Academy will travel to Lakeview Academy to take on the Lions at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
