Rangers no match for Oliver Springs

12:43 am | August 25, 2013

Like trying to shovel sand into a bucket with a fork, the Unaka Rangers could not contain Oliver Springs senior tailback Eddie Stephenson on Friday night at Goddard Field.

Stephenson rushed for a game-high 177 yards and two touchdowns as the Bobcats opened the 2013 football season with a 40-0 shutout victory over the Rangers.

From the opening series it was clear that Unaka was going to have a difficult time stopping the Oliver Springs running attack as the ’Cats moved 50 yards for a score on seven plays.

Senior tailback Shawn Childress came up lame with an injury to his left leg on his fourth carry of the day, and Stephenson entered the contest and ran in the two-point conversion off the 5-yard touchdown run by Derrick Tinker.
