East beats Moody 48-35 in Saturday showdown

The Titans needed a win Saturday to keep their playoff hopes alive, and they delivered just that.

East defeated Moody, 48-35 in a Saturday afternoon game at Memorial to end their season 5-3 in district. Ethan White caught two touchdown passes and threw for a third, and running back Alan Jimenez rushed for three more to lead the East attack. With his effort, Jimenez eclipsed 1000 yards rushing on the season.

The win keeps East’s playoff hopes alive, albeit barely. The Titans no longer control their own fate, needing Carroll to defeat Veterans Memorial next week to sneak in.

East finishes the season 5-5 overall.
