Titans Open District Play With Thrilling Win Over Jaguars

Mercer junior Will Hager flew through the air on his way to a layup against East Jessamine Tuesday night.

It was a bad start for the Mercer County Titans Tuesday night as they hosted district rival East Jessamine. It was anything but a bad finish however, as the Titans overcame a 17-point deficit to win, 66-59.

The Titans started slow, struggling to score, but the East Jessamine Jaguars seemed to knock down every shot they took.

The Jaguars quickly took an 18-4 lead and ended the first quarter ahead, 23-11.

“That’s a credit to them. They are a really good three-point shooting team and they made shots. We didn’t do a good enough job contesting shots. When they are hitting shots they can beat anybody in the region,” said Mercer County Head Coach Josh Cook.
