Field goals and short runs were all the Rangers could muster against Clemens, who opened up two long runs to win their District 26-6A opener 19-13 in Schertz.

Senior Marco Franco scored the Rangers’ only touchdown, a three-yard run with 3:14 left in the first half. Senior kicker Mason Reid added the extra point along with two field goals to round out the scoring.

The opening drive for the Buffaloes ended in a quick defensive stop as senior cornerback Nick Akin and linebacker Matt Kollmansberger wreaked havoc. The defensive struggle continued until late in the first quarter when the Buffaloes were able to steamroll their way inside the Ranger 40-yard line. This led to a 30-yard field goal to close out the first quarter of play.

Clemens continued their momentum heading into the second quarter, led by quarterback Max Didomenico who scampered for 19 yards for a touchdown in the final seconds of the first quarter.  He followed that with a 75-yard run with 5:00 in the second quarter. After Franco’s score a nearly two minutes later and another field goal by Clemens’ Noah Taylor, the score was 16-10 at the half.

Both teams remained scoreless in the third quarter. Reid added a field goal on a Ranger scoring drive in the fourth quarter, but it was not enough to close the gap.

The Rangers take on the Canyon Cougars in the Comal Bowl at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Ranger Stadium.
