Bulldogs hand Lions first loss

(Continued)

Then Rushville coach Rocky Alspaugh opted to go to the air on the next play. The Bulldogs got a good surge at the line of scrimmage and sacked quarterback Clay Tressler for a 10-yard loss. After an incomplete pass and a penalty, the Lions were pushed back to midfield.

Eventually, the Batesville defense forced a punt and avoided what looked to be a good scoring opportunity for the Lions.

Chaffee later intercepted a Tressler pass and returned it nearly 40 yards to the Rushville 30-yard line.

A 28 yard run by Clayton McKinley pushed the ball to the 2-yard line. Two plays later, McKinley found the end zone. It became a 21-0 lead with 4:24 to play in the game.

Both teams finished the game with only six first downs.

The Bulldogs managed 52 yards through the air and 110 on the ground.

Gowan finished with 38 yard rushing on nine carries, while Schuck had 36

followed by McKinley with 32.

Hittle led the ground attack for the Lions with 14 carries and 64 yards.

Zach Turner was second on the team in rushing with 14 carries and 22 yards.
