An early 20-0 first quarter lead was all Wabasso would need, as the Rabbits rolled to a 34-0 win over Adrian Sept. 28 in a battle of Section 3A foes.
The Rabbits (4-1) pitched their second shutout of the season against the Dragons (3-2) and are allowing just 5.8 points per game defensively heading into a big match-up at Springfield (5-0) Oct. 4.
The Tigers are averaging 43 points per game, while allowing just over seven and also sport a pair of shutouts (35-0 over MCC and 36-0 over MVL) and a 52-20 rout of TMB.
A 1-yard touchdown run from Carter Benz, a 19-yard touchdown strike from Benz to Will Carlson and a 27-yard run from Nick Marotzke gave the Rabbits a quick 20-0 lead.
In the third, Benz hit Marotzke on a 6-yard strike, and Lance Wagner capped off the scoring with a 2-yard run in the fourth.
