The defense won out in a game that was played in a steady misty rain.

After a scoreless opening quarter, Hunt-Thompson capped of a Cassopolis drive with a one-yard touchdown run.

Hunt-Thompson scored the 2-point conversion to give the Rangers a 14-0 lead heading into the locker room at halftime.

However, after Centreville drove keep into Ranger territory only to fumble away the football, Cassopolis drove down the field and capped the drive with a 24-yard run around the right end by Hunt-Thompson, who finished with 88 yards on 12 carries.

Hart finished with 67 yards on nine carries as the Rangers finished the night with 206 yards of total offense.
