The Indians were tied with Estacada through three quarters, but an 11-0 Ranger run lifted them to the win.

It was a tight one, but the Molalla football team couldn't quite get over the hump, losing 25-14 at Estacada in a league clash on Oct. 14.

The Indians tied the game at 14-all in the third quarter, but Estacada rattled off 11 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to snag the victory.

Down 14-0 in the second quarter, Molalla's offense got untracked when Jacob Watson hauled in a 45-yard pass from Isaac Klementis on a double-pass trick play to get the Indians on the board. Caden Cox's extra point made it 14-7 heading into the halftime break.

In the third quarter Watson added a second touchdown catch to the night's work, hauling in a 20-yarder from quarterback Mason King, a freshman who came on when Tucker Ward was injured on the last play of the first half. Cox's extra point made it 14-all heading into the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, the Rangers added a touchdown, made a field goal to their scoring line and came away with the win.

King had a nice night in the passing game, hitting on 7 of 9 throws for 81 yards and a score, though he did throw a pair of picks. Watson had three catches for 96 yards and the two scores, while Klementis added four catches for 41 yards.

On the ground, Molalla had some struggles, tallying only 13 yards for the game.

Molalla will host Gladstone Friday night, Oct. 15, for a 7 p.m. game.
