BRYAN -- The Rudder football team will be on the field at Merrill Green Stadium Friday night for a district 18-4A game against Willis. Kick-off is scheduled for 7:30pm.
The Rangers are coming off a 35-14 loss to Brenham. Rudder is seventh in the district standings with a 2-4 record. Willis is tied for fifth at 2-3. A Rudder win would snap a three game losing streak. Ranger head coach C.M Pier says the message to his team is to finish. "Mathematically we are still in." Pier added "We need some help from some other people in the district but all we can take care of are our games and that is Willis and Montgomery and that is what we are going to set out to do."
Rudder will close out the regular season November 2 on the road against Montgomery. The other eight teams in the district will wrap up district play on November 9.
