No. 5 Rangers claim share of North Division title

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)

Rangers’ D paces team in latest win

Another strong defensive effort proved to be the difference in a win for the No. 7 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers on Thursday night at Bobby Franklin Field.

NWCC defeated Southwest 24-7 thanks in large part to a Ranger defense that held the Bears to under 200 total yards and out of the end zone until the game had been decided. It was the third straight game the Rangers (6-0 overall) held an opponent to a touchdown or less and under 200 yards. (October 8, 2010, Page 6A)

NWCC Rangers get physical in win

A rugged and physical style of play in all three phases proved to be the winning formula for the No. 23 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers in their season opener Thursday night.

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)
