KNOXVILLE (WVLT) -- The Gibbs Eagles were sitting pretty.

Brad Conley's team led district rival Fulton 21-8 with less than five minutes remaining in the second quarter Friday in North Knoxville.

But the Falcons scored twice before halftime, starting a 32-point streak that buried the Eagles, handing them their first loss of the season, a 54-43 shootout setback.

A Ryan Hibbett touchdown run put Gibbs in front 21-8, before Fulton running back Dametrius Thomas scored a short touchdown run to make the score 21-16.

A Gibbs turnover put Fulton in business with less than a minute left in the first half. Quarterback Ben Winters took advantage, finding Brandon Taylor in the corner of the end zone as the first-half clock expired, giving the Falcons a 22-21 halftime lead.

Fulton scored 18 straight points in the third quarter before Gibbs countered, but the Eagle touchdown was too late. The Falcons improve to 3-4 on the season, while Gibbs falls to 6-1.
