The Ranger football team had their season come to an end on Tuesday night as they fell 34-6 in the Section 7AA playoff game against Aitkin. The Rangers were the No. 6 seed in the section and the Gobblers were No. 3.
The game was close in the first half. Aitkin scored a rushing TD in the first quarter and C-I scoring on a Dakota Mitchell 1 yard run in the second quarter. However, the second half did not go as well for the Rangers. Aitkin used a strong power running game on offense and a smothering defense to keep C-I at bay.
The Gobblers also took advantage of 5 costly Ranger turnovers in the game.
The Rangers finished the season with an overall record of 3-6.
