East Jessamine rebounded from its first district loss of the season by outlasting district foe Montgomery County on Friday night 44-35.
The Jaguars (5-2) scored a season-high 44 points, the most points they’ve scored since a 49-0 win over Owen County in October 2010.
Although Montgomery County (3-4) never led, the Indians were still within a field goal until midway through the fourth quarter.
Once again, the East offense was led by Cameron Thomas. The senior scored four times and rushed for 337 yards on 30 carries. It was his second game of the season and second in a row with more than 300 yards.
Montgomery was able to match East point-for-point to 14-14 before Brandon Back booted a 22-yard field goal with 4:56 remaining in the first half to give East a 17-14 advantage.
