The Santa Rosa Rangers started slowly in the Semi-Finals of the league playoffs Tuesday night, but came on strong in the later part of the first half closing the deficit to 21-17. The Rangers fought hard and lead the Lions statistically in the rebound department 25-23 against a much bigger Linfield team. Leading the way was Dominic Morace who hustled his way to 16 points and 9 rebounds. Teddy Badillo pulled down 7 rebounds and Jordan Zinter had 5 rebounds and led the team with 3 steals. Nano Dodson had 7 points and shared the point guard position with Jake Hieber who also helped run the Ranger offense. Tim Pacheco had the Rangers only 3 point basket of the ball game and added a steal in a solid defensive effort. The Rangers entered the playoffs as the second seeded team and fought hard tonight but came up short in a close game 45-38. This year’s team ended the season with a very respectable record of 9-2 and also had a key victory over the Linfeld Lions during regular season play, a feat never before accomplished by the Rangers. Every member of the MS Varsity Blue team played a vital roll in the team’s overall success this year. The Rangers have a lot to be proud of!
