With a talented Arroyo Grande team coming to town to face the Nordhoff Rangers in a first-round playoff game, NHS knew they would need to play stout defense if they hoped to hang with the Eagles. The Nordhoff defense played some of their best football of the season and held Arroyo Grande to just seven points, but that was all the visitors would need as they topped the Rangers. 7-0.
