Lions blank Spartans on Homecoming

The Lions stepped out of EIAC action Friday to host former conference rival Greenfield-Central. Rushville continued its solid play on the gridiron with a convincing 39-17 victory over the Cougars.

The Lions improve to 5-1 on the season and the Cougars drop to 1-5.

Rushville’s defense got things started early as Zach Turner picked off a Greenfield pass and returned for the touchdown to put the Lions on top 6-0 with 10:58 remaining in the first quarter.

The Cougars responded with a 16-play drive, capped by a 4-yard pass from Jeremiah Fields to Zach Phillips. Greenfield led 7-6 with 6:17 left in the first.

Rushville controlled the game from there on out. The Lions scored on their next drive as Clay Tressler hit Josh Yager with a 10-yard pass. The 2-point conversion was good as the Lions led 14-7.

The Lions stretched the lead to 21-7 on an 8-yard TD pass from Tressler to Yager.

A 35-yard scamper by Garrett Hittle resulted in another Lion touchdown. Rushville led 27-7 with 1:31 to play in the half.

Greenfield got a 25-yard field goal late in the half to make the score 27-10 at the break.

Following a Cougar fumble, the Lions marched 80 yard for the score. Hittle ran it in from 9-yards out to extend the lead to 33-10 with 2:48 to play in the third quarter.

On the first play of the fourth quarter, Austin Johns caught the 22-yards touchdown pass to cut the deficit to 33-17.

Rushville had one more answer as Turner scored from 5-yards out to make the final margin 39-17.

Rushville hosts EIAC foe Lawrenceburg this week. The Tigers (4-2) are coming off a 34-6 loss to Batesville.
