Rangers improve to .500 with home winSeptember 13, 2019
By TRAVIS DAVID
FERDINAND — Cooper Uebelhor finished last week’s game with a misleading stat line of 13 incomplete passes.
The Forest Park starting quarterback did not receive much help from his receivers in a 42-7 loss to Southridge.
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.
