East Carter gets first victory against Bath

GRAYSON — Senior quarterback Cole McClain accounted for three touchdowns to lead East Carter past Bath County 38-21 on Sunday afternoon.

After trading touchdowns early in the first quarter, East Carter scored 17 unanswered points to take a 24-6 lead at halftime.

Jordan Ratcliff scored the game’s opening touchdown and finished the game with 92 yards on 11 carries and the one touchdown.
