A stingy defense and powerful rushing attack leads East Jessamine to a 22-14 win at Montgomery County. The visiting Jaguars trailed 7-0 with just over a minute remaining in the first half
when an errant snap went over the head of Montgomery County punter Zane Carter. East Jessamine scored on a three-yard touchdown pass from Cameron Garrett to Storm Wilson with nine seconds left to take an 8-7 lead into halftime. The Jaguars wouldn’t trail for the rest of the game.

Yamar Woods added two rushing touchdowns in the second half, the second coming with less than two and a half minutes left in the fourth quarter to give East Jessamine a 22-7 lead. Montgomery County would add a touchdown in less than minute on a 17-yard pass from Trey Ishmael to Pharoah Davis to make it a one-possession game, but the ensuing onside kick would sail out of bounds preserving the East win. After rushing for 254 yards last week, Montgomery County’s Charles Collins was held in check gaining only 21 yards on 12 carries. Woods and Connor Hearn ran for 117 and 101 yards, respectively for an East Jessamine offense that outgained Montgomery County 261 total yards to 121.
