CASSOPOLIS — Turnovers continue to haunt the Cassopolis football team.

The Rangers committed six miscues, including throwing five interceptions, in their 20-9 Southwest 10 Conference loss to visiting White Pigeon Friday night.

The Chiefs’ win was the first against Cassopolis since 1984.

Neither team could find any offensive rhythm in the first half. A 5-yard Anthony Rubio run and a 2-point conversion run by Daniel Jackson gave White Pigeon an 8-0 lead, which it took to the locker room at halftime.

Back-to-back touchdowns in the third quarter completed the scoring.

Collin Mayville scored just 17 seconds into the second half on a 4-yard run before Dylan Carper, who finished with three interceptions on the night, picked off the Rangers’ pass on the ensuing possession and returned it for a touchdown to make it 20-0.

Rubio and Dominick Pant also had interceptions in the contest.

The Chiefs finished with 177 yards of total offense compared to just 83 for Cassopolis, which travels to Mendon Friday night.

The Rangers are now 2-2 on the season after dropping back-to-back games.
