The Nordhoff High School (NHS) football team hosted the Santa Paula Cardinals in its first-ever Citrus Coast League game Sept. 14 and the newly formed league provided plenty of action right out of the gate.
After a back-and-forth thriller, the Cardinals skipped town with a narrow 35-28 victory to continue to 5-0 on the season while Nordhoff dropped to 3-2 and 0-1 in league.
The game got off to a slow start as neither team managed to put any points on the board in the first quarter, but it wasn’t for a lack of opportunities, especially for the Rangers. Nordhoff’s defense did a nice job slowing the Santa Paula offense in the first quarter and managed to give their offense great starting field position. In its first three drives of the game, NHS took possession of the football on Santa Paula’s side of the field, but still could not manage to score any points, which would prove to be costly at the end of the night.

Mike Miller, Ojai Valley News sports editor
Nordhoff High School (NHS) head football coach Lance Wiggins is calling his team’s Sept. 21 road game against the Fillmore Flashes a must-win game. After falling last week to Santa Paula, the Rangers may need to win out if they hope to qualify for the postseason.
“This will be a good matchup for us,” Wiggins said. “Fillmore is much better than they have been in recent years and they are talented.”
Both teams will enter this week’s game 3-2 overall and 0-1 in Citrus Coast League play. This season, Fillmore has defeated Viewpoint (49-22), Trinity Academy (29-20) and La Cañada (32-0). Their losses have come against Brentwood (34-7) and Carpinteria (27-14).

Ted Cotti, Ojai Valley News correspondent
In recent years, the boys’ varsity water polo contests between in Nordhoff High School and Villanova Preparatory School have provided Ojai with some of the most entertaining, evenly matched and hotly contested dramas of any local sports rivalry. And yet, unless they cross paths in the playoffs, the two teams will not meet this year.
