Mason McDonalds three-touchdown night solidifies JV footballs 48-7 victory over Grand Blanc

Last Friday, the JV football team handily defeated the Bobcats of Grand Blanc. The Rangers defeated the Bobcats 48-7 in a game most thought would come down to the wire; sophomore quarterback Mason McDonald started the beatdown for the Rangers early in the game with a 20-yard rushing touchdown.

From that point on, there was no looking back. FHC controlled this game from start to finish, dominating the Bobcats on every possession. The Rangers offensive line dominated the defensive attack from the opposition. This allowed Mason to take his time in the pocket and make an appropriate decision to run or pass. As a result, Mason rushed for three touchdowns. 

“Your only as good as your offensive line,” head coach Anthony Sultini said. “Our line is playing really well, moving as a unit, especially on our pass plays.” 

Coach Sultini is very proud of his offensive line for its effort last Friday night, as sophomores David Galloway, Joey Wing, Hayden Myers, and J Coe were unbreakable in the Bobcat’s attempt to get to the quarterback. 

“The [offensive] line has been doing a great job blocking in both the run and passing game,” Mason said. 

The Rangers’ defense was often flying around the field, making plays. Grand Blanc running backs were swarmed by defensemen, with no choice but to try to hold onto the football. Sophomore safety Brady Drueke played a great game on both sides of the ball; he covered the long-ball threat and attacked the run game. He also scored his first touchdown of the season. 

The Rangers look to continue with their physical and aggressive play throughout the remainder of the season. Next on the list is Byron Center. 

“They [Byron Center Bulldogs] are going to try to ground and pound, just like our bread and butter game,” coach Sultini said.

The Rangers start the year a perfect 2-0. With many games left to play, FHC looks to continue its hot streak and win more games.
