Roundup: Washington leads Calvary to win versus Rebul

MERIDIAN —     Calvary Christian's Smokey Washington was the definition of endurance Friday night. He racked up 20 carries for 283 yards and five touchdowns to lead the Cougars to a 42-40 win against Rebul Academy.

    Defensively, Calvary's Josh Roberts had the play of the night, stopping Rebel on the one-yard line on the last play of the game to secure the win.

    Washington started early scoring the opening touchdown on a 48-yard rush in the first quarter. Beto Medina found the end zone on the two-point conversion.

    Still in the first quarter, Medina followed up with a three-yard touchdown run. The two-point conversion failed.

    The rest of the night was all Washington and the Cougar offense line. He racked up four more touchdowns, the longest on an 80-yard run. Washington also contributed two two-point conversions.    

    The game was back and forth all night with Rebul down by two and in control during the final possession. A long pass brought Rebul within sight of the end zone only to be tackled on the one-yard line by Calvary's Roberts. His tackle secured Calvary's 42-40 win.

    The win moves Calvary to 1-2 overall while Rebul remains winless at 0-3.

    Calvary will be back in action Thursday night at home hosting Hebron. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m..
