East Lawrence had no answer for the Colbert Heights' rushing attack, as the Wildcats ran for four touchdowns in a Class 3A, Region 8 win Friday.

Colbert Heights scored on runs of 16, 7 and 14 yards in building a 20-0 halftime lead and put the game out of reach with a 54-yard touchdown run with 8:02 left to play.

Isaih Hubbard connected with Nate Tucker on a 27-yard touchdown pass for East Lawrence early in the fourth quarter. A 4-yard run by Dylan Hunter cut the lead to 28-14 with 3:51 to play, but Colbert Heights ran the clock out to secure the win.

East Lawrence (1-3, 1-1) hosts Hatton on Friday. Colbert Heights (3-2, 2-1) plays at Cherokee.
