The quest to win a second MACJC North Division title in a row begins tonight for the No. 9 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers. NWCC, which went 9-1 last season in coach Ricky Woods’ third season in Senatobia, hosts No. 8 Pearl River at Bobby Franklin Field. Kickoff for the game is set for 6:30 p.m. and the contest can be heard locally on 93.7 FM.
A 31-point outburst that stretched from the midway point of the second half to the midway point of the fourth quarter propelled the No. 5 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers to a 38-13 win over Holmes Thursday night.
The win kept the Rangers undefeated on the season (8-0) but it also earned them at least a share of the MACJC North Division title. NWCC, which is 5-0 in the North Division, will finish up the season at home Thursday against Itwabama and a win over the Indians would give them the title outright. (October 22, 2010, Page 7A)
A week after taking a stranglehold on the MACJC North Division standings, the No. 7 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers will host Southwest tonight at Bobby Franklin Field. Kickoff for tonight’s game is set for 6:30 and the game can be heard locally on 93.7 FM.
The Rangers (5-0 overall) have played smothering defense over the last two weeks in wins over Coahoma and Northeast. NWCC has only allowed 13 points in those two wins, and only 32 points in three North Division games. (October 7, 2010, Page 6)
A stranglehold on the MACJC North Division standings is what the No. 9 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers secured Thursday night with a 26-6 win over Northeast.
The Rangers (5-0 overall, 3-0 in the North) battered the Tigers (3-2, 2-1) from start to finish by forcing six turnovers and holding them to just 117 total yards. NWCC, which has now won five straight in the series, is now plus 10 in the turnover column and only allowed 32 points in three games to North Division teams. (October 1, 2010, Page 6A)
A complete effort from the offense, defense and special teams couldn’t have come at a better time for the Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers Thursday night.
The Rangers won their second MACJC North Division game in as many tries with a one-sided 37-7 win over Coahoma at Bobby Franklin Field. Thursday’s win saw the Rangers (4-0 overall, 2-0 in division play) grab an early lead that only continued to grow in the first half. The Rangers jumped out to a 27-0 lead on the Tigers (2-2, 1-1) thanks to the passing of quarterback Brent Osborn, the receiving of wideout Myles White and the hard running of Jay Jones and Calvin Malone.

Two touchdowns each from Myles White and Jay Jones helped lead the No. 15 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers to a 41-26 win over East Central Thursday night at Bobby Franklin Field.
NWCC (2-0 overall) jumped out to a 19-6 lead in the first quarter but ended up trailing 20-19 at the half. The third quarter proved to be the difference in the game for the Rangers as they outscored East Central 15-0. (September 10, 2010, Page 7A)
The Rangers mauled their way to a 27-17 win over No. 13 Pearl River by clamping down on the Wildcats when the going got tough and utilizing a team-first concept that coach Ricky Woods has tried to instill into his players all offseason. (September 3, 2010, Page 8A)
Ricky Woods doesn’t like to lose. The veteran coach, who once won 60 games in a row at South Panola, isn’t used to not making the playoffs and competing for championships.
So when the Rangers missed the MACJC playoffs last season despite a 6-3 overall record, the goal for Woods was to get the program better and headed back in the right direction. (August 17, 2010, Page 7)
