No. 1 Leland dealt first loss, falls to Ruleville 6-0
RULEVILLE — The Ruleville Central Tigers picked a fine week to play their best game. Ruleville (3-2) used a dominating rushing attack Thursday night to control the clock and defeat the Delta's No. 1 team, Leland, 6-0.
“Ruleville had a good gameplan. Their offense was their defense,” said Leland coach Eugene Sanders, whose team now stands 4-1. “We didn't play a bad ballgame.....They just controlled the clock. And we never could get on the field.”
Despite the loss, Sanders said his team could use Thursday's performance later on in the season.
“(The loss) could help us down the road, and we can see how other teams will prepare for us,” said Sanders.
