The Forest Park starting quarterback did not receive much help from his receivers in a 42-7 loss to Southridge.

Begle.

Friday night, Uebelhor tossed a 42-yard touchdown pass to Jake Begle in the first quarter to open the scoring for the Rangers.

Forest Park never looked back in a 26-0 win over Tecumseh.

Uebelhor finished with 60 yards through the air and added a rushing touchdown in the third quarter.

Drew Day recorded his second 100-plus yard game of the season with a 106-yard night.

Day punched the Rangers second touchdown of the night in from the goaline for a 12 lead which they carried into the half.

Jared Schipp capped the scoring with an interception returned for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.

“Our defense played great tonight,” Rangers coach Ross Fuhs said. “We are really happy to get a shutout. We also wanted to get a defensive score tonight, and Jared came up big with that for us.”

Despite the 26-point win, Fuhs mentioned it could have been more in hand.

“We still have some things to clean up offensively as we were inside the 20 a couple of other times and didn’t get points,” the coach said. “We have to sharpen up those things, but I am proud of our effort.

Jake Begle had a great game for us and Drew Day was very solid again.”

Despite running six less plays from scrimmage, the Rangers outgained Tecumseh, 241-144.

Forest Park (2-2) plays host to Pocket Athletic Conference foe Pike Central next Friday.
