It truly was an ugly night for the Rangers Friday evening between the hedges.
Estacada High School's varsity football team was on the wrong end of a 41-0 shutout, playing the top-ranked 3A Regis at home.
Regis held the Rangers to just 83 yards of offense and kept them out of the end zone. Estacada had just 19 yards in the second half.
The Rams, however, rushed for 133 first-half yards and picked up almost 100 in the air, before finishing the game with 369 yards of offense.
The Rangers simply could not move the ball. Regis keyed on Estacada running back Jake Hyde and held him to just 40 yards.
All of this happened in front of the smallest crowd Estacada's players have seen this season.
Regis scored early and often. Not four minutes into the non-league game, Regis already had 14 points. Early in the second quarter, they made it a 21-0 game.
The Rams scored twice more in the third quarter, and that's when one of the few highlights for the Rangers came. Junior Jake Day rushed and blocked the extra point.
The Rangers would have another highlight when senior kicker Dustin Harding's punt was dropped and Junior Jennings recovered it for Estacada deep in Regis territory. But not before Regis scored again in the fourth quarter.
Estacada had just over three minutes to score and despite earning a first-and-goal on the 5-yard line, they couldn't make it happen.
The Rangers final game of the season, homecoming against Cascade's Cougars, is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Friday.
