Jackson Roberts rushed for 159 yards and four touchdowns, had an interception and forced a fumble as the St. Pat’s football team defeated Gordon-Rushville 43-3 on Friday.

His first score came on a six-yard run in the first quarter. A fake extra point attempt led to an open pass to Sam Troshynski for a two-point conversion to go up 15-3. Quarterback Jack Heiss scored before that on a 31-yard touchdown run to put the Irish on the board.

Heiss returned a short punt to the 10-yard line, and Roberts scored his second touchdown on a 10-yard run the next play.
