Pacifica Dumps Rangers, 27-13

By Mike Miller
Nordhoff hosted Pacifica in a non-league matchup last night, but lost in a thrilling game, 27-13. The Rangers tied the score at 13-13 with 3:23 to play in the game, but the cheering would soon stop when the Tritons returned the ensuing kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown. Pacifica scored a late touchdown to make the final score 27-13. The Rangers’ touchdowns were scored by Logan Crow and Quinn Jenkins. With the loss, NHS falls to 1-2 on the season and will host neighboring Villanova on Friday night. See Wednesday’s edition of the OVN for details, stats and quotes from last night’s tough loss.

Wildcats and Toads Win Openers

Both Villanova and Thacher came away with wins in their first games of the year. The Toads jumped out to a 27-0 lead and was well on their way to an easy victory over Lighthouse Christian before I left to catch the start of the Villanova game.

The Wildcats were impressive in their game against Desert Christian, winning 35-20. The game was not nearly as close as the score would indicate as Villanova dominated on both sides of the ball. For highlights and stats of both games, see Wednesday's edition of the OVN.
