Big plays doom East Jackson in loss to Monroe Area

By AccessWDUN Staff

COMMERCE — Big plays were the keys in Monroe Area’s 42-13 win over East Jackson in Region 8-3A play Friday night.
The Hurricanes (6-1, 2-0 Region 8-3A) scored on plays of 15-yards, 20-yards, got a pair touchdowns in a 15-second span and returned a kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown.
East Jackson (1-5, 0-2 Region 8-3A) got its scores on a 1-yard touchdown run from Marques Greene and a 75-yard TD pass from 
Greg Huggs to R.J. White  in the third quarter to cut the score to 35-13.
But the Eagles could not get any closer.
Next up for East Jackson is a big road game to Franklin County in two weeks.
