Wyatt Bolding was Rhoades’ favorite target Friday night hauling in 4 catches for 24 yards Johnny Ryder had 1 catch in the game, a 51-yard pass from Rhoades that ended in a touchdown, he also contributed a 6-yard touchdown run.

Nathan Flores led the Lions in tackles with 4 as the Lions defense forced Frost to punt five times before the end of the first half.
