  • Rebels fall in district opener

    Owen County knew Friday night’s game with DeSales was not going to be easy.

    The Colts came into Owenton having owned the district over the last three years. In fact, since the districts were realigned in 2007, DeSales has not lost a game against district opposition.

  • Jilted in The Jungle

    The football stadium at East Jessamine is called The Jungle. On Friday night in Nicholasville, the Jaguars seemed to be lying in wait for the arrival of the Owen County Rebels.

    East Jessamine jumped in front early and never looked back as they defeated Owen County 49-0. The loss dropped the Rebels to 3-3 on the season.

    East Jessamine junior Cameron Thomas ran the ball only 11 times Friday night and made the most of his opportunities. Four times in the first half, he took the handoff and went the distance. Thomas finished the night with 201-yards rushing.
