Jacksonville Rallies in Second Half to Stun Ennis, 34-26
JACKSONVILLE -- The Jacksonville Indians picked up their biggest win since 2012 by rallying in the second half to knock off Ennis, 34-26, Friday night at the Tomato Bowl.
Jacksonville (5-3, 2-1 in District 17-5A) moved closer to clinching its first postseason berth in four years by handing Ennis (5-3, 2-1) its first district loss.
Ennis went into the break with a 13-10 lead, but Jacksonville outscored the Lions 24-13 the rest of the way.
Indians quarterback Cameron High threw a 54-yard touchdown pass -- one of his two scoring strikes on the night -- to Camryn Franklin midway through the fourth quarter for the go-ahead score.
High, who passed for 107 yards, also threw a touchdown pass to Will Garland for Jacksonville's only touchdown of the first half. The Jacksonville quarterback also ran for a team-high 152 yards, including a 42-yard touchdown in the third quarter.
Jacksonville returns to action next Friday night at home against Lindale (1-7, 0-4) before finishing the regular season Nov. 4 at Nacogdoches.
