Huge performances from freshmen Sawyer Bosch and Maguire Mahack helped the Rangers get a huge 28-13 win yesterday over West Ottawa on Wednesday. After a tough 35-0 loss to Jenison last week, FHC found a way to bounce back strong this week against the Panthers. Sawyer ran in 2 touchdowns, as Maguire and freshmen Carson Mocherman both threw touchdowns to account for all 28 points for the Rangers.

West Ottawa struck first with a touchdown, but the Rangers did not give up at that point. The offensive line was a huge key to victory, allowing Sawyer to find the promise land twice. Sawyer’s big half gave FHC a huge confidence boost going into the locker room. The Rangers didn’t let up in the second half. They kept their same mentality they had in the first half and ran it down the Panther’s throat. Everything clicked offensively, driving it down the field, 1st down after 1st down. So much rushing and blocking help from Sawyer opened up the passing game for Maguire and Carson, each throwing a touchdown.

The Ranger W puts them at 1-1 and hopeful to keep this recent momentum. Their goal is to end the year with a positive record according to left tackle and defensive end Jason Downey. Next week when the Rangers play Ottawa Hills at home next week which will be another opportunity for their offense to shine.
