Stout defense not enough for Rangers in loss to Braves

From Herald Staff Reports


The Forest Park football team saw their defense play arguably their best game of the season but the offense still has a little catching up to do.

After falling behind 13-0 early, the Rangers defense held Tecumseh to just 63 yards in the second half but it wasn’t enough as Forest Park was held scoreless for a final score of 13-0.

Forest Park head coach Ross Fuhs felt that his team’s defensive performance was “fantastic” but he says the offense needs to get things going in a hurry.

Drew Day was the team’s leading rusher, Jared Schipp led the Rangers in receptions and Gavin Pierce led the defense in tackles.

The Rangers will travel to Petersburg next Friday for a Pocket Athletic Conference battle against Pike Central.

Here’s the rest of Friday night’s prep sports action.

Jeeps 2, Patriots 1: The Northeast Dubois boys soccer squad got to spend some time playing in the rain on Friday evening before lightning ended up shortening their match against Vincennes Rivet.

The Jeeps struck first in the first half as Jacob Ivey sent a ball into the corner of the goal to make it 1-0 Jeeps. Northeast Dubois added another goal shortly before halftime as Vetle Fossen scored off an assist from Ethan Danhafer to make it 2-0.

The Patriots did add a goal in the second half but shortly after the match was called due to lightning and the Jeeps were awarded the victory.
