Isabella allowed a 19-7 fourth-quarter lead to slip away on Friday in a 34-19 loss at Autaugaville.

Jaqarise Stacey scored on a six-yard run for the Mustangs in the first quarter, and then Jarred Campbell added a six-yard touchdown run for a 13-0 Isabella lead.

Autaugaville (3-1, 1-1) got on the scoreboard in the second quarter, but Stacey found the end zone again in the third quarter for a 19-7 IHS lead.

The Mustangs (1-2, 0-1) were stunned to lose the edge in the fourth quarter, with two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown, and a fumble returned for a touchdown contributing to the collapse.
