Bottom Line: Athens (2-0) 28, Rusk (0-2) 16
Breaking It Down: Three of the Hornets' four touchdowns came from 20 yards out or more, with the remaining score taking place on an 18-yard run. The Eagles will need to get this cleaned up before taking on Palestine (0-2) on Friday. Palestine's wing-t offense can gash a defense in hurry - the Wildcats were able to score 48 points on Jacksonville last week.
Bright Spots: Brennen Lucian and Jaylon Hall accounted for the Rusk touchdowns, scoring on runs of 4 and 1 yard, respectively. Rusk was still in the game until the final 1:30 when the Hornets added an insurance touchdown.
Next Game: The Eagles will host Palestine at 7:30 p.m. Friday. The Wildcats will also be seeking their first win of the season. Friday is also homecoming in Rusk.
