The Pirates got out to an early 3-0 lead before the Rangers came storming back after Jake Logsdon threw touchdown passes to Sean Bettles and Eric White to give the Rangers a 14-3 lead at the half. In the second half, Santa Ynez mounted a great comeback with a fake punt for a touchdown and touchdown pass late in the game but a missed extra point conversion gave NHS the narrow one point victory.
With the win, the Rangers earn a spot in the semi-finals against Lompoc. The game will be played at Nordhoff. For more details on the Rangers big win, see Wednesday's edition of the OVN.
