Titans power away from RangersAugust 24, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
No offense and not enough defense equaled a rocky start to the season Friday for Forest Park’s football team.
The Rangers sustained a 60-0 shutout loss on the road at the hands of Pocket Athletic Conference counterpart Gibson Southern. The Rangers, who were shut out three times a year ago, struggled to gain traction again Friday against a Titan team that finished 11-3 last season while reaching the Class 3A semistate for the first time.
Gibson Southern (1-0, 1-0) crafted a 15-0 lead after one quarter, extended the edge to 36-0 by halftime and lengthened its lead throughout the second half. The Titans struck via a handful of big plays, scoring on runs of 72 and 53 yards and breaking off a 70-yard touchdown pass play.
Forest Park (0-1, 0-1) generated 200 yards of offense but committed two giveaways on a fumble and an interception, while Gibson Southern played a turnover-free game en route to 348 yards of total offense.
The Rangers will return to Ferdinand for their home opener next Friday, battling Perry Central (0-1).
