The Rangers jumped out in the first quarter as Landon Ramsey hit Austin Drew for a 52-yard touchdown. The two-point conversion failed as UHS maintained a 6-0 lead after a quarter of play.

Sunbright, however, evened things up at 6-6 in the first minute of the second quarter with a 10-yard touchdown by Colton Nitzschke.

On the ensuing Unaka drive, Logan Benway scored on a one-yard carry and then added the two-point conversion. The final minute of the second quarter saw Landon Ramsey find Devin Ramsey for a 25-yard touchdown, and Drew Smith ran in the conversion to send the Rangers into the locker room with a 22-6 lead.

Matthew Erickson came up big for the Unaka defense in the third quarter as he jumped in front of a Tiger pass.

That set-up a 19-yard touchdown from Ramsey to Drew midway through the third quarter.

Benway added the conversion and the Rangers held on from there for the win.
