TUSCON, Ariz — The Tucson Sugar Skulls fell to the Arizona Rattler for the third time this season, 62-47, as Arizona improves its record to a perfect 11-0.
Rattlers quarterback Drew Powell accounted for seven touchdowns while wide receiver Jarrod Harrington finished with a career high 114 receiving yards and three scores, and he also added a kickoff return for a touchdown.
"They were more physical than we were on both sides of the ball, and it showed throughout the night," said Sugar Skulls head coach Marcus Coleman. "Both teams made some mistakes, but we made more mistakes than they did."
Sugar Skulls quarterback Jake Medlock threw for five scores in the defeat. Rico Brown caught two touchdown passes, and has now done that in four straight games.
Tucson is now 6-6 on the season, one game ahead of the sixth and final playoff spot. Tucson now has a bye week before finishing their regular season at Arizona and home against Quad City.
