ESTACADA - The North Marion Huskies hang on in a nail-biter at Estacada High School's Buzz Randall Field tonight, winning 26-20.

Estacada's junior quarterback and defensive back Jake Day picked Maguire's sole interception in the first quarter and returned it 22 yards for a TD.

Senior full back Greg Locke rushed for 60 yards for the Rangers, including a 23-yard touchdown in the third quarter.
