Rama Rudolph carried 24 times for 256 yards and a touchdown, and Brendon Cole had 19 carries for 104 yards and a score.

Touchet 58, LaCrosse-Washtucna 6: Colter McKeown threw for a score and ran in another as the Indians scored five first-quarter touchdowns and cruised to the Southeast 1B victory.

“That scoring came real fast,” said Touchet coach Gary Dorman, “and I think the varsity players were on a mission to spend three quarters on the sideline. They really came out determined. Everything they did was quick to the end zone.”

Elias Martinez ran for 90 yards and a TD on just three carries and also threw for a touchdown.
