Cameron High’s Late Touchdown Lifts Jacksonville to 18-14 Win over Whitehouse
WHITEHOUSE -- Jacksonville quarterback Cameron High ran for 151 yards and two touchdowns -- including the game-winner -- Friday night as the Indians defeated the Whitehouse Wildcats, 18-14, at Wildcat Stadium.
The win moved Jacksonville to 4-3 overall, 1-1 in District 17-5A.
Whitehouse carried a three-point lead into the fourth quarter and had Jacksonville ready to punt from its own 35, but the Wildcats were whistled for being offside, which handed the Indians a fresh set of downs. Jacksonville proceeded to drive 60 yards in 12 plays, with High carrying on the last seven plays for 31 yards and the game-winning touchdown.
High also capped a 10-play, 57-yard drive running back Vadall Johnson to cut the Whitehouse lead to 14-11.
The loss dropped Whitehouse, which turned the ball over four times, to 4-3 overall and 0-2 in district.
Wildcats quarterback Tanner Roach completed 17 of 25 passes for 231 yards and a touchdown, but Roach was intercepted twice for the second straight week, including one in the end zone that snuffed the Wildcats' first drive of the game.
Running back K.J. McDade ran for 40 yards and his first touchdown of the season, and receiver Cameron Cantrell hauled in a 43-yard touchdown pass for his first score of the year.
Whitehouse is at Nagocdoches next Friday.
