For a second straight game, Rushford-Peterson’s boys were nearly flawless at the charity stripe and it was highly critical in posting another tough victory. At Lewiston-Altura, the Trojans went 21 of 23 at the free throw line. They were 22 of 24 at Crestwood the previous game. The contest with the Cardinals was tied late when Landon Skalet hit a crucial three-pointer to put R-P up 64-61. They sealed the “V” at the charity stripe. Led by Luke O’Hare (career-high-tying 23 pts, 7-7 FTs, 5 rebs, 4 asts), Skalet (17 pts, 3-8 threes, 4-4 FTs), and frosh Justin Ruberg (12 pts, 7-8 FTs, 14 rebs), who all cashed in at the line, R-P prevailed 74-65. The Trojans improved to 5-3, 12-5.
