The Nordhoff Rangers remained winless in 2015 after losing 52-21 to the Paso Robles Bearcats Friday night in Paso. NHS fell behind 7-0 early in the game but then managed to tie the game when Scott Barron intercepted a pass and returned it 65-yards for a touchdown.
With the game tied 7-7, the Rangers took the lead when sophomore quarterback Parker Johnsen connected with senior Daniel Williams for a 15-yard touchdown pass. The extra point conversion would fail but Nordhoff took a 13-7 lead into the second quarter.
From there on the game belonged to Paso as they scored 45 unanswered points and forced a running clock late in the third quarter. NHS did score once more when Williams connected with Noah Osborn for a 71-yard score to cap the scoring on the night.
With the loss, NHS drops to 0-5 on the season and they will host the San Marcos Royals (1-4) next Friday night. See Wednesday’s Ojai Valley News for more information on Nordhoff’s performance.
