BLACK RIVER FALLS — Their offensive schemes may be different, but both have proven to have the ability to find the end zone at any moment.
Logan High School running back Raekwon Tillman rushed for 200 yards, including key touchdowns of 29, 46 and 37 yards, as the Rangers outlasted Ethan Young and the Black River Falls passing attack to earn a 33-28 nonconference win Friday night.
The Rangers (7-2) broke a 14-14 deadlock when Tillman scored two rushing touchdowns in the third quarter, but failed on both conversions.
Black River Falls (5-4) responded with a 1-yard run by Ryan Millis in the fourth quarter and cut Logan’s lead to 26-21.
Young, who passed for 219 yards and three touchdowns, led his team to the Rangers’ 18 with a chance to take the lead, but Logan defensive back Jarrod Besl intercepted a pass and returned it 38 yards. The Rangers capitalized with a 29-yard touchdown run by Aric Elmore.
Young came back with a 5-yard scoring pass to Matt LaFaunge (four receptions-127 yards) at 1:33 of the fourth quarter, and then got the ball back after a defensive stop, but the Rangers defense turned Black River Falls over on downs at its 33.
