Rose scored twice on runs of one and two yards, finishing with 65 yards in 22 carries. He now has 18 rushing touchdowns and 128 points.

Litchfield unleashed a long passing attack in the third quarter, with quarterback Kent Johnson connecting with Daren Sangren on two long strikes. The first, a 53-yarder, set up a Johnson's one-yard sneak to cut Delano's lead to 14-12. The other was a 37-yard pass to put the Dragons in the lead, 20-14.

Delano then was forced to punt and Beau Penk's block was recovered by Sangren on the Delano 12. That led to Jesse Houseman's nine-yard touchdowns reception from Rose on a halfback option, giving the Dragons a 27-14 advantage.

Rose then capped the scoring with his two-yard run in the final quarter.

Johnson completed 10 of 17 passes for 207 yards. Sangren caught six passes for 146 yards.
