Sugar Skulls 51, San Diego 31

TUCSON, AZ - A healthy mix of ground and air from Tucson Sugar Skulls quarterback Jake Medlock and running back Mike Jones was the formula for a 51-31 victory over the San Diego Strike Force Sunday at the Tucson Arena.

Medlock got his first start at quarterback after playing half of two games. He played the entire game and accounted for four touchdowns, two rushing and two passing. Jones added three touchdowns and 84 yards rushing before a crowd of 4,004.

Skulls quarterbacks have yet to throw an interception through five games.

The Sugar Skulls next travel to Nebraska for an April 6 game against the Danger.

• Jones has played in three games and has scored at least two touchdowns in each. His eight TDs lead the team.

• Defensive back Cam Gaddis got his second interception of the year and now is tied with Dee Maggitt Jr. for the team lead.
