MONROE — The Ruston Bearcats didn’t need to use the Wildcat offensive set Friday night against Wossman.

Ruston moved to 5-4 overall and 3-1 in district play while Wossman is now 5-4 and 2-2.

Johnson exploded to pick up 322 rushing yards and two scores on 35 carries — that’s 9.5 yards per rush — while adding two receptions for 23 yards.
