Rangers reclaim the Ark


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Logan had owned the rivalry with Central for six years prior to last season's Red Raider upset. With playoff implications and the Ark on the line, Friday night saw a must-win for the Rangers.

The game went back and forth in the first half with neither offense able to break through. Logan threatened early, but what looked to be a Mitch Schriener to Tanner Formanek touchdown pass was ruled a fumble with Central recovering for a touchback. Then it was Danny Bonifas blocking a Red Raider punt to help give Logan good field position once again, but they would be unable to capitalize.

The scoreboard read 0-0 at half.

In the second, the Rangers finally broke through. A 59-yard touchdown pass from Schriener to Jonah Waite lit up the scoreboard for six Logan points. They added more in the 4th quarter on a 32-yard field goal from Aric Elmore to make it a 9-0 Ranger lead.

Central struggled to find any momentum, highlighted by Dan Callahan's interception thrown to Jarrod Besl as time was winding down. The Rangers secured the win on a Calvin Wright touchdown run, capping off a 74-yard night for Wright. David Hellerud carried the ball for 104 yards himself as Logan took back the Ark with the 16-0 win over Central.

The loss means Central is no longer undefeated. They fall to 4-1 in conference play, 6-1 overall. Logan improves to 2-3 in the MVC, 3-4 overall. Their playoff eligibility now hinges on next week's game against Tomah.
