Rushville assistant coach Paul Barada: Rushville fell to Franklin County under the roof at Lucas Oil Stadium, 53-20.

The Lions’ defense struggled all day to slow the Wildcats’ running attack while the offense sputtered as well.  Consequently, the Lions fell behind early, heading to the locker room down 33-6.

The second half saw Rushville gain some momentum on offense.  The Lions put 20 on the board behind the running of junior Josiah Haye who rushed 20 times for 105 yards.  Junior Jacob Vance added another 72 yards and a touchdown on 8 carries plus 4 receptions for 58 yards and a score.

Defensively, the Lions were led by seniors Hunter Applegate, Casey Smith and Marcus Malson.

Rushville coach Dan Rector: We knew Franklin County would be the best team we’ve played so far and it was going to be a physical game.  We didn’t answer the bell in the first half and dug ourselves a hole we just couldn’t climb out of.

I’m proud of our players for setting their jaw and coming out in the second half and executing much better. But the game is four quarters, not two.  As a staff, we have to find a way to get the boys ready to play our brand or physical football for four quarters.

We thank coaches Barada and Rector along with Franklin County coach Wes Gillman for the game info.
