The Cavaliers had a chance to extend their lead, but they fumbled the ball in the end zone and Jackson recovered.
Callaway’s defense then came through with a big play.
Wilson Lindsey picked off a pass and returned it 70 yards for a touchdown, and Callaway went up 28-8 with the two-point conversion.
Jackson was driving late in the half when Lindsey came up with another interception, this one on his own 5-yard line, to end the threat.
In the third quarter, Jackson cut Callaway’s lead to 28-16 with a touchdown and a two-point conversion.
