After a rough start to the season, the Rangers football team looks to improve with their upcoming game against Grafton. 

The Rangers started off the season by falling short to Shepherd Hill with a score of 21-10, against Shrewsbury 21-14, and also to Tantasqua, in their most recent game, with a score of 21-8. 

In addition to taking these three tough losses, the Rangers have also faced an immense amount of injuries throughout their season so far. Some of these injuries involved seniors Ethan Clark, Ryan Mackintire, and Alex Calhoun. Thankfully, Mackintire and Calhoun were able to return to play for the recent game against Tantasqua. 

On the other hand, senior captain Ethan Clark has already struggled with knee injuries in the past, and his recent injury did not make any of it better. His MRI results have a lot to say: his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is fully torn, a small tear in the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), and partial tears in the meniscus. These injuries have taken him out for the rest of the season. 

With this unfortunate news, Ethan says, “I know what I’m going to be tasked with because of my recent experience with my other knee injury. My last recovery was filled with impatience so I know I need to take this recovery the right way.”

Fellow senior captain Luke Lentine says, “I feel like we can definitely pick things up throughout the rest of the year, even after taking three tough losses to three very good teams. I’m just really excited to see what the boys can do.” 

The Rangers are excited to continue their season and work toward winning, starting this Friday at 3:15 against Grafton.
