Forest Park lost to Southridge 14-21. The heat index was over 100 degrees on Southridge's turf field. Umpires called additional water breaks throughout the game to help deal with the stifling heat. Even though the Rangers produced more offense then the Raiders, turnovers, penalties and a strong Raider running game caused the Rangers to come up short of the win. Here are a few highlights from the evening:
The night began with Southridge honoring senior Anthony Fischer, junior Austin Kempf and sophomore Ethan Knust for their heroic actions helping a Huntingburg family after an accident last weekend (click here to view video or click here to view more of the original news stories).
