Seeking perfection

The RCHS Tigers moved one step closer to a perfect regular season with an emphatic 48-14 win over Horseshoe Bend Friday.

Reco Hannah rushed for 104 yards and two touchdowns on just six carries, and J.R. Roundtree added two touchdowns--one on the ground and one through the air--as RCHS won by 21 points or more for the sixth straight game.

The Tigers scored 27 points in the first quarter and led 41-7 at halftime as Horseshoe Bend offered little resistance to the Tigers' big-play offense.

Trent Lane had a 64-yard touchdown run and finished with 71 yards on two carries.

Andrew Prestridge broke free for a 72-yard score and managed 89 yards on his two carries.

Dee Gullage added a 45-yard interception return for a touchdown.

After struggling to close wins over Mt. Zion, Ranburne and Woodland to start the season, RCHS has become a juggernaut on offense.

The Tigers have averaged 48 points per game over their last six games, the closest of which was a 35-14 win over Reeltown on October 16.

That trend promises to continue going into the final week of the regular season as RCHS hosts a 3A Beulah team that is 1-8 on the season and is surrendering an average of 32 points per game.

If the Tigers win they will complete the first 10-0 regular season in school history.

RCHS has already won the 2A, region 5 championship and will host Collinsville in the first round of the playoffs on November 6.
