Logsdon Makes History For NHS

The Nordhoff Rangers fell behind 14-0 in the first quarter of play against the Pacifica Tritons and then they went on a scoring run for the ages as they went on to defeat Pacifica 42-21. The story of the game was the quarterback play by senior Skyler Logsdon. Logsdon broke two school records (most touchdown passes in a game and most yards in a game) en route to the upset victory.

Catching touchdowns passes for the Rangers were Alex Leckie (2), Dillon Lowen, Sean Bettles, and Logan Crow. The NHS defense also showed up big, forcing the Tritons into several turnovers. For more information on Logsdon's record night and for quotes from Logsdon and head coach Tony Henney, see Wednesday's OVN.
