Keep an eye on the score for this one: both Rusk and Jasper put up some lofty point totals in their previous games, so things might heat up even more when they play one another this week. Rusk narrowly escaped with a win last week as it sidled past Madisonville 48 - 45. Meanwhile, Jasper didn't have too much trouble with Hardin-Jefferson in its last game, where Jasper won 35 - 17.
Even if a win is a win, Rusk didn't have the same dominating performance against Madisonville as it did against Alto the game before. Junior Joseph Fancis provided the team with an impressive 113 receivings in the victory. Senior Sam Thomas was in the mix too, providing Rusk with two touchdowns. Thomas has also now scored at least one touchdown in the past four consecutive games. The win -- the team's 4th in a row -- brings Rusk's record to 5-1.
As for Jasper, it started its game with a lot of points -- 28 points in the first half -- and coasted on that for the victory. The win got it up to 3-2.
We'll find out on Friday which team can carry over its success and which team inevitably falls when Rusk and Jasper clash.
