Rush rushed for 145 yards on six attempts and a touchdown. “I think the team had a great game,” Rush said. “We did almost everything to perfection.”

The ‘Rines defense held the Trojans to one of their fewest points of the season, only allowing 18 total points.

The ‘Rines have won six of their last seven games, only losing to the Damascus High School Hornets.
